    it is not optimal that specular, metallic and smoothness are not in the terrain tab itself
    also not optimal that the UI gizmo representing remapping are different

    I've looked at your screenshot a dozen times by now and can't figure out what you mean. Can you explain, for a Terrain/HDRP noob like me, what the problem is? I don't see it.

    Since a few releases ago terrain works with layer assets, kinda like a PBR material lite, HDRP added a few more settings but their appearance is not consistent between interfaces and some are even missing.
    The top photo is the terrain interface, it's super devoid of regions (uncool), from the word New Layer terrain 2 down to the Offset before the word Brushes is the region of the selected layer asset
    The photo at the bottom is that layer selected in the inspector

    Good segway on the new design: it's hella confusing due to the lack of delineation between regions, here: layer asset and the brush blend together. It took me a while to figure out the new workflow.
    So add a line, color the region differently, anything, my eyes are bleeding each time I use the new Unity.
    And it would be great if Unity didn't turn into a student's exercise in flat design. Some people on this forum have great ideas, poll everyone and pool their resources.
