I'm creating a world made of cubes, similar to cube world game. Is there any quick way to create a map made of cubes that looks like this?

    $\begingroup$ Yeah, just create your shapes and then use the "remesh" modifier in "block" mode $\endgroup$ – PeterT Oct 3 '14 at 18:09

  • $\begingroup$ @someonewithpc I was too lazy to make screenshots, find the hotkeys and how to do texturing. Someone else can reap those points if he wants $\endgroup$ – PeterT Oct 3 '14 at 18:50

As PeterT said.

Start by enabling the ANT Landscape addon. Open the user preferences Ctrl Alt U, got to the Addons tab, search for "Landscape". Click on the check mark on the right, if it is not already enabled.

Add a Landscape Shift A > Mesh > Landscape like the picture below. Landscape
Add a Remesh modifier to the object. Set the Mode: to Blocks. Increase the Octree Depth to get the resolution of the blocks you want.

Same Landscape mesh with only the Remesh modifier. enter image description here

You can add the Remesh modifier to any mesh you do not have to start with the Landscape addon.
