    Editing ground when placing a building

    regards,
    Jared.

    Heya Jared/Custard!

    So from my understanding you have created a landscape but are now wishing to place assets a "barracks" on the land and make it look more realistic.






    Although this is a rough example to what you're trying to achieve hopefully this will point you in a better direction.

    You can play around with the Brush size and strength values to make big and minor adjustments depending on what you're needing , I learnt a lot from just getting my hands dirty and playing around and seeing what works.
    Also i would strongly recommend to dive into the Landscape documentation HERE: https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest...ion/index.html
    And is great resource to get the basics , Also i would recommend looking up Landscape tutorials on you tube and example like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHVuVVHlUmM
    His tutorial series are a great starting place.

    As always if you have any questions ill try my best to help point you in the right direction.
    Cheers,
    Alonaz

        I've Been looking into Runtime terrain deformation and Currently out of the box unreal wont do that, As far as i know.
        Now i have heard somewhere on the forum (cant find the link) that editing the terrain source you're more than able to do so. also looking into Voxcel based smooth terrain you may beable to achieve something.

        But as i'am still a newbie just looking to help others I'm afraid i don't have a diffinative answer :P
