How do you make caves/ mines?

Postby velocisniper » Mon Oct 01, 2018 8:56 pm

This may sound like a dumb question, but how do you create caves or mines in a map? is there like a specific object that works best to hollow out some terrain, or is it a tool that I haven't found?
Thanks!

Caves and mines are objects. Certain objects have a 'terrain cutter' attached to them to carve out a hole in the terrain. Look to Dagobah, Hoth and Rhen Var: Harbor to see how it's done there.

Thanks! New question: How do you cut into an object? I need to put a small hole in a rebel capital ship.

In that case, you'd need to edit the object's mesh manually in XSI.
