Reza Sarkamari shows how to set up your first scene using the landscape system in Unreal Engine 5.

This new introductory tutorial by Reza Sarkamari covers creating environments in Unreal Engine 5 using the UE5 Landscape System.

The tutorial begins by setting up a scene and creating our first landscape.

“Throughout the process, we discuss the technical considerations you need to know when creating your first landscape in UE5, including the Landscape system and the editor.”

Heightmaps are essential to know when working with terrains, and Reza discusses what type of map works best.

“At the very end, I’ll demonstrate how to bring an external height map from software packages like World Machine to save time on sculpting.”
