I tried to show how to use various tools to create a simple terrain.

There is more than one way to achieve this, albeit, this is perhaps the simplest.













And finally, the model I created, prior to any triangulating etc.

It can take quite a lot of time, either creating triangulations, and or smoothing to areas that require the detail, all by hand. Care must be taken when deleting edges and vertices's, as these may cause irregular shaped polygons, making it difficult for the model to be rendered and or read by physics elements.

Texturing can also influence how and where you may wish to introduce triangulation and or more polygons. This is another tutorial subject and you may like to look at using NashaUV http://www.delgine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4262 as an example.

I always find, it's the things we take for granted, we had to learn first before moving forward. I thought I would start at this point, and hopefully, time permitting, fill in some gaps for people. Smile

I created this tutorial into a PDF document, for easier referencing locally.

I also included the model file at the stage where the tutorial leaves it, so you can develop it further for your own use.
