I made a quick video showing how I made the bluffs in my recent Bluff Encounter map. Look at the first post in this thread for the link. Enjoy and happy mapping!

Nice tutorials, really liked the mountain one, never thought to create a mountain that way.

Nice stuff DP got any others you planning on sharing? The stairs and platforms were a big help for me :Big Grin: and at the end of the mountain tut I had to do a double take to believe it was actually created in PS instead of a Google Sat image of a desert mountain somewhere in Nevada or something xD
