The next way to sculpt the terrain from scratch is by using the Smoove tool.…Now this actually works with a finer grain mesh. It is actually an interactive…way of sculpting terrain and I really like it. Let's go ahead and use that tool.…I am going to zoom out a little bit. And I am going to create a terrain from…scratch but it has got a grid spacing of 10, I am going to make it 2 feet so I can…have a much finer grained grid. So I am going to go ahead and sketch out my…baseline and then sketch out my grid. Now you will notice this grid is a lot…more finally detailed and that is fine. But just be aware of that the more…detail you have in this mesh, the more computing power you are going to need to…edit it. So if you get bogged down, you are going to have to go back to a more…finally grained mesh. So I am going to go ahead and select this and double…click on it and then I am going to select the Smoove tool. Now when I do that,…you will see a little circle comes out around my cursor and in the bottom right…
