Making a world. how to/best way to?

Hey everyone, i’m Addezz and i’ve just started using unreal engine and iam currently watching tutorials and reading up on stuff. My first goal is to attempt to make my world. From the video tutorials ive been watching people are often making “scenes” could be valleys, a tiny forest or a house by the river. After you’ve completed these scenes can you put them together somehow and make them come together into a world or should i make my world and then start doing scenes/detailing ?

I’m also going to try to import a island from google maps to unreal engine, im guessing world machine is the best way to do that?

Thanks in advance,

Yep if you don’t want to do detailed scenes then don’t watch those tutorials, there’s plenty of tutorials to create landscapes.
