Using terrain brushes

Knowledgebase / Using terrain brushes

Terrain brushes allow you to paint down shapes of terrain tiles that change based on the tiles around them. This makes drawing terrain a lot easier, and the brush makes your terrain look more natural.

Terrain brushes appear in the Game Objects sidebar with a brush icon in a blue circle. Terrain brushes are available inside certain Asset Packs, for example the Gamefroot Classic Pack comes with a selection of terrain brushes.

Draw shapes on the stage by clicking and dragging, and the terrain brush will alter the terrain automatically.

Note: If you don’t already have a Tile Map layer (or Terrain layer), then you’ll need to add one from the Layers panel (click on the + icon and select Tile Map).

Then you can select a terrain brush and start drawing terrain in your level.
