Chapter 5. Setting the Stage with Terrain > Unity’s Terrain Engine

Unity’s Terrain Engine

At this point you should set up your project space on your computer. With Unity open, choose File▸ New Project and click on the Create New Project tab. Browse to where you’d like to save your files and decide whether to import the Standard Assets and Toon Shading packages. If you’re following along with Widget, select both and click Create. This new project will be loaded by default until you open or create a new one.

Open your project in Unity and create a new scene, if it isn’t already. Add a directional light (GameObject▸Create Other▸ Directional Light) and rotate it so it doesn’t point directly down. This will act as the “sun.”
