The Procedural Terrain Generator (PTG) is a blueprint-friendly editor code plugin that allows you to apply different noise algorithms to create different terrain shapes with water, nature, and actors in just a few seconds.
TUTORIALS AND OTHER VIDEOS
The PTG has an Actor that can be configured within the editor or via Blueprints. The main purpose of this plugin is to save a lot of work and time by procedurally creating different terrains in a matter of seconds within the editor (it is not designed to generate infinite chunks of map on runtime).
All the assets shown in the gallery and videos are from other asset packs and from the starter content.
Disclaimer: the generated terrain is not a landscape actor, and therefore it CANNOT be edited with the landscape tool.
