I am trying to create some terrain, specifically in the shape of an island.
I drew an outline of the island with a single vert. I want to create a mesh so there can be different levels of height on the terrain.
Vertex Outline Example:
What I tried first was using a plane that was subdivided many times and then intersecting the plane with my filled vertex outline with the Boolean modifier. This worked to some extent, however I ended up with a bunch of ngons around the edges of the outline. Secondly, I read here saying to possibly try the grid fill option, but I believe the geometry isn't setup to work with that as it did nothing.
What is a good way to generate a custom shape mesh in the form of an island so that I can apply and shape terrain on the top surface?
Update In Regards to Mr.Zaks Answer It's importing into Unity 3D as one mesh, but in pieces. This is because Unity 3D has a 64k vert limit. You can correct this by either lowering the vert count or creating tiles of your mesh into 4 pieces. Hopefully this helps someone else in the future!
