For now a flat terrain is fine to drive and run around on. The example map already has a flat terrain set up. The terrain mesh was added to a map via the Terrain Editor. Here's how...

  • Open the Terrain Editor inspector (SHIFTN)
  • Right-click (RMB) on the empty field on the left side, and choose New > Tree...
  • Select the new Root node. Scroll down the property list on the right until you find the "Model" field.
  • Browse to the following terrain model: models/terrain/sdk/etqwmap.lwo.

Some guidelines on making your own terrain model can be found on here.
