Must-know Terrain Tutorials Post 1

This is my terrain series that I will be doing for a few days. The series will take 5 posts. This is the first tutorial post. I will provide you with a HD video, but I will also provide you with written-down instructions.

Mountains:
Yes, a lot of people have wanted to know how to make mountains with the new terrain. Well, here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

  1. So first of all, you want to load up ROBLOX Studio, this can easily be done by pressing start, and writing "Roblox Studio", or if you are already familiar with ROBLOX studio, you can easily navigate to the program.
  2. Go to the place you would like to make mountains on, or click new at the top left.
  3. Click the plugin called 'Elevation Adjuster' and adjust the tool to the settings that suit you. (I make mine different every mountain I make)
  4. Once you have done that, generate terrain on all settings that make the terrain flat, but make the base height over 5, this will allow the terrain to make mountains! You can use non-flat land, but it would be different. (If you already have a place with terrain height over 5 then leave it).
  5. Then, when the flat land has generated, click and hold the left click button. And drag the mouse up. (You can also make land have dents in it with this tool because it is 'Elevation Adjuster')
  6. This will create mountains, now if you would like to make the mountains taller, make another mountain beside the other, then another between the two. This makes very tall mountains!
  7. Once that has been done, your land is free to decorate.
Material Brush:
The material brush is very easy to navigate, and is already installed on ROBLOX Plugins just like the elevation adjuster.

  1. Click the material brush in the plugins bar.
  2. Choose the brush size and material wish for.
  3. Drag the brush over the terrain you want to change the material of.
  4. You're done!
