// Key Features //

Function Description
DESIGN YOUR OWN TERRAIN SHAPE Design your own terrain shape with the Unity Terrain Tools and let World Creator make it looking real.
TILING SYSTEM World Creator introduces the most powerful tiling system ever seen to create not only a vast landscape but to create a real world with different biomes, including full support for Input Terrain areas where you can seamlessly stamp your input terrain into this new world.
RIVERS AND ROADS Create highly customizable Rivers and Roads that perfectly fit into the terrain. During creation you have a real-time visualizer – what you see is what you get!
ENHANCE EXISTING TERRAINS Import height maps or existing Unity terrains and let World Creator make them look real. It is just one click and you transform a low resolution terrain to a high resolution real looking terrain. You even can affect the shape itself for stunning artistic effects.
TEXTURING Use your own or third party textures to colorize your terrain artificially depending on terrain slope, height, mask, cavity, sun direction, sea level and other criteria. Manipulate how the textures are combined to achieve AAA visuals. World Creators texturing generator is layer based – no more annoying blending problems!
OBJECT PLACEMENT Populate your terrain with your own or third party trees, plants and other objects using a dedicated artificial generator.

Settings, such as terrain slope, terrain height, masks, cavity, sun direction, sea level and many more can be used to create an amazing natural looking terrain with rich vegetation and many details. You even can tell World Creator to only place objects depending on a specified texture!

EROSION AND SEDIMENTATION Includes highly customizable Erosion and Sedimentation filters – both fully GPU powered and utilizable during real-time mode. World Creator is one of the first terrain generators that is capable of applying Erosion and Sedimentation in real-time.
TERRAIN PRESETS Every terrain that you create can be stored as a terrain preset which you can share with your friends or sell them inside the asset store.
TEXTURE MASKS AND OBJECT PLACEMENT MASKS Use masks to specify texturing and planting distribution. Masks can be edited in real-time – use a set of predefined brushes or simply use your own custom brushes.
CAVITY DEPENDENT TEXTURING AND OBJECT PLACEMENT Describe in-depth where textures and objects should be placed through the cavity functionality with which you can for example select pit holes and more.
POST OPERATIONS Apply post operations to further adapt your terrain to your scene. Such an operation could be to flatten the terrain within a specific radius at a scene objects location – ideal for placing buildings and more.
REAL-TIME PERLIN NOISE GENERATOR Use the integrated real-time Perlin noise generator to create masks while designing the terrain. Those masks can be used to perform texture masking or object placement masking.
HEAT-MAPS Heat-Maps are visualizers that help you a lot during design time. Enable them and see which area of the terrain is affected by a given operation such as terrain filter settings, texturing and object placement. In addition they speed up the entire generation process!
HEIGHT NOISE MASKS This kind of masks can be used to create irregular transitions in blending textures at specific heights.
TERRAIN MASKS Create multiple terrain types on a single terrain map which is a unique feature compared to other terrain generators! Masks can be edited in real-time – use a set of predefined brushes or simply use your own custom brushes.
HIGH-SPEED GPU GENERATION World Creator is definitively one of the fastest terrain generators available as it takes full advantage of the power of your graphics card. Generate huge terrains within milli-seconds.
REAL-TIME TERRAIN GENERATION Switch to real-time mode and see how each slider used to create the terrain shape instantly affects the terrain you see in your viewport. Designing a terrain is fast as only possible and makes pure fun!
MAXIMUM RESOLUTION UP TO 8192 World Creator pushes Unity’s terrain engine to its limits by enabling you to create terrains with a resolution of 8192 pixels!
