The Landscape system paves the way for terrains that are orders of magnitude larger than what has been possible in Unreal Engine previously. Because of its powerful Level of Detail (LOD) system and the way it makes efficient use of memory, heightmaps up to 8192x8192 are now legitimately possible and feasible. The Unreal Engine now supports huge outdoor worlds that allow for any number of types of games to be created quickly, easily, and without modification of the stock engine or tools.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
