Terrain brushes are another name for the various options on the Terrain panel, which are used by area-builders to modify heightmap nodes by raising, lowering, texturing, and other options.

Terrain Slope Limiter


This part of the Terrain Panel can be used to narrow the range of elevation your brush will paint.

Pulling the blue handles will limit the elevation where the brush will work.

Right-clicking on a handle will invert the slope-limiter.

Right-clicking outside of one of the handles, such as in the green or red portion, will reset the slope back to default.

For more information, see Terrain panel.
