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"

How would I make a material for a tropical island?

Hi,

I am trying to make a Tropical Island, and I would like to have Grass in the middle of the Island then Sand on the outside like a beach. Whenever I am doing the layout of my terrain I selected Grass as my main material and it's just Grass and no sand. How would I do the sand on the outside of the Island without effecting the rest of the terrains grass material?

Thanks for your help! :)

Landscape Material

You have to setup your landscape material to support layers, and you have to make the landscape layers!

Apply the landscape material by highlighting your landscape and pressing F4 to open details panel, and selecting your landscape material that you made.

Here's some pics!
