    Hi all - cleaned up thread so it's relevant to OP. If you have specific questions that aren't related to what the OP discussed please use a new thread.

    @ChrisTchou ,

    Hi,

    Can we expect any updates in this area in 2019.1 or 2019.2?

    Even a 'simple' update for terrain objects that would allow to use custom prefabs (same like for terrain trees already) and expose settings like using terrain angle (instead of no 'up vector rotation') would be great as a starting point.

    At the moment it's possible to somehow use 'terrain trees layer' for objects/detail/grass but it has few flaws.

    The smallest brush radius is quite big, It's not possible to use terrain angle for rotation (which is usually necessary for grass and detail), it's not possible to mix multiple prefabs at once when painting (same as for tress but in case of grass/detail it's very useful) and NavMesh baking process treat everything in this layer as trees.

    It could be much more advanced off course and I'm sure you have a lot of nice features planned. I'm just thinking about basic stuff at the moment - some basic set of features that would allow users to use terrain system for grass/detail/debris/bushes/etc.

    Any answer would be much appreciated!
    Thanks.

    How do I copy all the textures/layers from one terrain to another? Copying and pasting the component seems to bug out as it copies more than just the layers. I'm using 2018.3b11

    Hi, it's great news that you are working on updating the terrain system because that's something we've really been struggling with for a long time. Just wondering if there are any plans for adding occlusion culling support for terrain trees? What about any other performance upgrades? Adding support for GPU instancing is great but unfortunately it's not supported on the oldest devices our product needs to run on.

    Can you help me with this. After upgrade to 2018.3 I got this error: "Terrain Layers cannot be populated at the same time as the splats". I used my script wich I made a year ago. How can I use this new layers instead of splatPrototypes? Thanks/

    Sorry but a bump for the OP is needed again now with these subjects mainly in SRP:
    • Height texture for terrain layers
    • Easily customizable terrain shader with guide
    • Terrain support in Shader Graph

    I can't even use the new terrain in Unity 2018.3.0f2 the terrain inspector ALWAYS says: "Note: Inspector tab is a duplicate. Paint functionality is disabled". and I can't paint height, textures or anything. A clean project doesn't even fix this, do I need to enable something?

    Why not close the duplicate inspector?

    It's bugged and stays that way until you close all inspectors and reopen one (atleast it did for me a minor version ago).

    I did close all inspectors and re-open just one, tried resetting the terrain component ect. and I still got that message no matter what I tried, I updated to 2018.3.3 about an hour ago because of this, that seemed to fix it.

    Question to people using the new terrain system. Is the splatmap resolution (Control Texture Resolution) still limited to 2048?

    Thanks!
