Hey everyone! :D:D..


I have seen quite a few levels now, where i see theese awesome caves, that are there during the whole level.
I just want to ask, if there are like some kind of tutorial on how to make it?
I've tried making one, but it just ends up being some kind of.. horizontal square the whole way.
Anyways, some help would be appriciated. ;)

I suggest making use of the actual real-life elements of stone/rock. Stone is rough and rigid, so make your cave's interior and corners that way. Add a couple of "open spaces" inside your caves, much like the hollow part of an apple in the middle. These "hollow spaces" can be very relieving for the player in that they don't feel claustrophobic through the whole entire level. Also, try to make an original entrance and exit in and out of your cave. These small touches can really make the player feel like they went somewhere except just started out in some random cave. Anyway, I hope I helped some. Can't wait for your cave level!

anything can be used to make a cave

the best way is using the circle when adding materical and make your path narrow or as wide as your want.

bolt it or put rods to support it.

make the backround of the cave to make it look nice probaly best for it to be identical to the cave

and thats kind of mainly it :)

use the corner editor to make it look more cave-like

Look at the video or play my level "Temple of Sun and Moon [ Voltiare ]" and you will notice my cave skills lol. It does look pretty nice IMO and I have found that octagons are the best shape to make rocks out of. I use to to make the cave and to make cracks in the rock before using the corner tool to smooth it out.
