when adding the landscape mesh it shows an error (shown in image) and doesn't let me edit the landscape I added with the side menu. I already reinstalled blender and it didn't work, any suggestions?enter image description here


What version are you using? Did you add the landscape through Add -> Mesh -> Landscape? Remember that as of blender 2.79, you don't have to install it using a separate file, blender already has it in its optional addons with the compatible version.

For that you can go to user preferences -> add-ons and search for A.N.T and activate it like this: enter image description here

Ps. I had some trouble when i was first starting out and downloaded the addon from a previous version, causing compatibility problems.

As described here you could try:

1 -close blender

2 - rename C:\Users\yournamehere\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79 to C:\Users\yournamehere\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.79.bak

start blender, should be good as new now.

Remember to always download from the official blender site, blender.org

  • $\begingroup$ Have you tried resetting to factory settings? You might have corrupted your user preferences with some addon, you could try what i edited in the comment above $\endgroup$ – Eduardo Abreu Nov 3 '18 at 10:22
