Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Right now, you can export a landscape selecting it and choosing File->Export Selected. It will be exported as an obj file.

There is only a little problem: you'll have all components separated as single objects. You should merge them and weld vertex.

Ben, may I ask you if there is something ongoin to improve landscape management of heights?

Peace, Budello

Hey Budello,

I know that we have slowly snuck some updates into the editor, but I don't believe there is a specific plan for improving heightmap management. We try to track what we're planning to work on here:


but landscape doesn't appear to be on that list at the moment. If you feel this should be a higher priority for the development team, please post in the feedback section of the forums, perhaps with a poll for other users to add their votes to:


Hope that helps! Thanks for updating this AnswerHub post!

Hey Extellion,

Currently there is no way to export a landscape created in UE4 to an .FBX file. You can save a heightmap and use that externally as suggested here: https://answers.unrealengine.com/questions/21101/can-you-turn-a-landscape-object-into-a-static-mesh.html

Hope that helps!
