Learn the foundations of how to procedurally generate terrain by setting up your own algorithms within Unity. Beginning with a simple plane mesh, you’ll then learn how to algorithmically generate a terrain’s shape with C#, and how to determine textures, biomes, how trees spawn, and more. Additionally, you’ll master how to apply these skills to any map size while accounting for performance, allowing you to implement procedural generation in numerous game projects, increasing their replayability.
You will learn how to:
- Generate noise maps to determine the shape of the terrain
- Utilize noise maps as height maps to produce terrain
- Apply gradient textures to a mesh based on terrain shape
- Set up heat maps and moisture maps based on the terrain height
- Combine various data elements to algorithmically determine biomes
- Use biome types to determine how trees spawn

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
