PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION AND NOT ONLY WATCH THE VIDEO!

Getting started:

Tools:

  • You will want to get a server for this preferably bukkit as you need to install plugins.
  • World edit can help with quite a lot of things like filling in massive spaces.
  • World edit is good for terraforming, but VoxelSniper is WAY better. This tool allows you to create anything and everything you desire. Weather is it from a lagoon, to the high alps of China, this plugin is a definit yes for terraforming.


When terraforming, you will need to grasp the basics and understanding of natural forms and how the work. If you were not so good in Geometry in school then I suggest looking a picture references to help you with this.

VoxelSniper Commands:
  • /v (BlockCode) = This command allows you to set you brush to whatever material you want it to be. E.G If I want my brush to be grass I will type in /v 2 OR /v grass. I prefer using the Block ID's for this as sometimes you can type in the wrong name for the material. This is where you can go and find loads of items code. Just look them up.

  • /b b = This is known as the Brush Ball tool. This will create spheres of whatever size you want and whatever material you want.

  • /b e lift = This is known as the Brush Erosion Lift brush. It will raise a circle of blocks depending on what you set the radius/size to.
  • /b bb = This is known as the Brush Blend Ball. This will smoothen any un-natural surfaces.



KEY TIPS:

Whe terraforming try to keep the environment as natural as possible. Blend your structure with all different types of brushes and now just ONE. Try keep to the same biome and not go making a desert in the middle of the jungle. It will look horrible. Enjoy terraforming.
