    As the subject specifies. Doing terrain using unity terrain objects vs going into blender and creating 3d terrain...

    When to use each strategy?

    Best way is to test both, performance-wise. As everyones game is different. I know alot of devs dont use terrain, as its a resource hog in unity, and some use models/mesh instead of terrain, and others use tiles. Run some tests and use what fits YOUR game.
