Adding texture to platform?

If this thread is in the wrong forum, please move it to the rightful forum.

I am in the process of adding mesh objects to the platform when creating a level. But I’d like to ask, how do I add a texture to the platform in the level? When I mention “platform” I am referring to the base that is shown when starting a new level.

I am creating an underwater level, and I would like to add the sand texture to the floor.

Your first step would be to create a “Material” that contains your sand texture. Or if you just need the sand to be there just for reference, drag the Texture onto the “platform” and UE will generate a material with that texture and will be applied to your mesh.

But something tells me you’d rather need a Landscape and not use meshes for the ocean floor. To create a landscape, follow this Tutorial:

Then you’d want to create a Landscape Material, which can be made following this guy:
