Unity 3D terrain from Blender ANT Landscape Generator

Unity 3D terrain from Blender ANT Landscape Generator

Terrains in Unity may be generated using Blender’s ANT Landscape Generator.

Install ANT Landscape Generator if not already in Blender.

In Blender, select File » User Preferences…:

blender-user-preferences

Under the Addons group, select the Install Addon… button.

blender-addons

Navigate to the add_mesh_ant_landscape.py script, and with the script selected press the Install Addon… button.

Once installed, enable the add-on by placing a check in the Add Mesh: ANT Landscape group.

blender-enable-addon

With a new scene ready in Blender, the default camera and lamp may be removed. Only the terrain is needed for import to Unity.

blender-new-scene

Create a landscape in Blender by selecting Add » Mesh » Landscape.

blender-add-landscape

Blender will generate a 3D mesh of a landscape.

blender-new-landscape

blender-new-landscape-perspective

Landscape parameters may be tuned to different terrains.

blender-mesh-options

blender-new-landscape-islands

With the landscacpe selected in Blender, export the mesh to a Wavefront OBJ file by selecting File » Export » Wavefront (.obj).

blender-export-landscape-obj

In unity, create a new terrain by selecting Terrain » Create Terrain

create-terrain

unity-new-terrain

Import the landscape Wavefront OBJ file.

unity-terrain-asset

Drag the default mesh from the terrain OBJ file, and drop it on the Unity terrain.

unity-terrain-asset-default-mesh

unity-drop-mesh-on-terrain

This will result in the mesh as a child of the Terrain hierarchy.

unity-terrain-mesh-hierarchy

To apply to the imported landscape mesh to the terrain object in Unity, use the Object2Terrain.js script.

Under the Unity project assets, create an Editor folder, and place the Object2Terrain.js script in the folder.

unity-object2terrain-editor-script

Now with the default mesh of the terrain selected in the hierarchy, select Terrain » Object to Terrain.

unity-terrain-menu-object-to-terrain

Unity terrain object now reflects the imported landscape mesh from Blender.

unity-terrain-from-mesh

Children of the Unity may now be deleted from the terrain object.

Distortion:      Distortion amount.
Hard:            Hard/Soft turbulence noise.
Depth:           Noise depth, number of frequencies in the fBm.
Dimension:       Musgrave: Fractal dimension of the roughest areas.
Lacunarity:      Musgrave: Gap between successive frequencies.
Offset:          Musgrave: Raises the terrain from sea level.
Gain:            Musgrave: Scale factor.
Marble Bias:     Sin, Tri, Saw

Marble Shape:    Shape of the marble function: Default, Ring, Swirl, X, Y
 
HEIGHT OPTIONS:
Invert:          Invert terrain height.
Height:          Scale terrain height.
Offset:          Terrain height offset.
Falloff:         Terrain height falloff: Type 1, Type 2, X, Y
Sealevel:        Flattens terrain below sealevel.
Platlevel:       Flattens terrain above plateau level.

    Hi,this is exact what i need and searched for.
    But i found 2 Errors in the Object2Terrain.js.
    On Line 59 and 61 there is “<” because it must be “<" (less than).
    Thanks and regards
    Stephan

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
