I did not want to be the first person to reply to this thread, but here goes :smiley:

As reference I chose the winter themed image:

And this is what I came up with:

(Seeing both side by side now I see that I could have improved on the lighting a bit.)

The course was great. I learned a few things about the terrain editor that I would not have known if not for the course. Another thing that I learned is that I like working with terrain less than I like building things, so, I am looking forward to the scripting part of the certification :rofl:

I did try the grassland/farms image first but after nearly throwing my PC out of the window out of frustration I decided to go with the other image which seemed easier (Sorry, lazy, ik). I am certainly not done with using or learning to use terrain but for now I am taking a break from it :exploding_head:

Hmmmm

I wonder how those who picked the images would do with this challenge.. wink wink

As for feedback I am happy enough with what I learned, the only thing I would have liked to get more information about is post process volumes and the settings of the sky as that was part of last Try it in Core, but wasn't really covered. Thanks!

For my design I went with the snowy peaks and designed the scene for actual gameplay rather than photo realism. This gave me a real idea of forming the land and using the paint, foliage and also the debug tool to remove foliage that appeared in places I did not want it.

This part of the course I felt is very important and although I didn't use it in the scene, I was happy to learn how to work with water and also underwater. I am much more comfortable with terrain building now!

I tried several versions including water and grass but decided to share this scene for the certification module. It was fun, I learnt many things and I enjoy creating environments.

Not sure why my screenshots show clouds are I turned them off in the game. I've double checked and the clouds are not in the game lol
