    I'm using my own meshes for terrain, but I want to draw grass. Unfortunately I seems to need Unity terrain to do that? Is there some way I can use my own meshes and draw grass on that?

    Ah, yep- we're working on some fixes and updates to Polybrush that will solve this. Sorry for the delay!

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but have these fixes been rolled out as of now? As far as I can tell with the current version of polybrush, it just places mass amounts of individual gameobjects with the prefab placer like mrCharli3 mentioned.

    Ah, oops - I misunderstood mrCharli3 back then. Polybrush will always only place prefabs/objects, it is not intended to do a grass/detail system like Terrain. Sorry for the confusion!
