The Terrain component provides six distinct tools:

  • Raise or Lower Terrain: paint the heightmap with a paintbrush tool.
  • Paint Holes: hide portions of the Terrain.
  • Paint Texture: apply surface textures.
  • Set Height: adjust the heightmap toward a specific value.
  • Smooth Height: smooth the heightmap to soften Terrain features.
  • Stamp Terrain: stamp a brush shape on top of the current heightmap.

You can also create your own custom Terrain tools. For more information about this, see API documentation on TerrainAPI.TerrainPaintTool, and see Unity’s GitHub repository for Terrain Tools.
