This is episode three in this 15-part build-a-game series on how to build Breeze, a third person jump-and-run platformer using CRYENGINE 5.6, hosted by Junior Evangelist Roman Perezogin.
In this episode, Roman walks you through the process of creating an island with different areas, starting from a blank level. First, Roman uses the Terrain Editor to generate and manipulate terrain to create the size, shape, and form of an island. Roman then shows you how to use layers to create different biomes with the Terrain Editor. You'll also learn how to use the Vegetation Editor to create meshes, set the density and distribution of your vegetation, and even regulate how the grass will sway in the wind. By the end of the tutorial, you will have created an entire island with distinct and charming diversity, from the beach to the forest and the mountains, using workflows and principles that you can apply to more complex projects.
