About This Class

In this introductory game design course, I will be teaching you how to use the Landscape Tools in Unreal Engine 4 to create Open World Environments.  

The course contains over 50 fun-to-follow video lessons taught by 12 year game design veteran and current full-time game design instructor Greg Wondra.  

In this course you'll learn how to:

  • Setup and create a project

  • Create a Landscape 

  • Sculpt a Landscape 

  • Create a Landscape Material

  • Paint textures (grass, rock, snow, etc.) onto a Landscape

FUTURE VIDEOS COMING SOON to this course will teach you how to:

  • Create paths, rivers, and roads using Landscape Splines

  • Populate a Landscape with dynamic Foliage (grass, bushes, trees, etc.)
  • Add cool effects to a Landscape (fog, God rays, etc.)

With the knowledge gained in these video lessons, you will be armed with the necessary skills to start crafting your OWN gaming environments.
