Coding and Design Tipps[edit]

  • Terrain

There is an option to create a massive amount of trees through out the whole terrain, there are some problems coming with it. The tree prefab collision only works with Sphere, Box or Cube collision. When you use Mesh collisions it will not work with the mass trees. That is a bug known.

  • Random GameObject Placement

Easy way to place a random amount of GameObject on the Terrain is to use a invisible object (Cube). That object will then be moved random around the map and with the function "Terrain.activeTerrain.SampleHeight(transform.position);" its possible to get the height of the terrain. Then you just Instantiate the new object on the position of the invisible object with the height you got with the function mentioned above.
