for hills, just do the first technique I listed. Use a Nurbs Plane, select the CV's and move them.

Tree- depends what you want: super-detailed or just a plain "tree"

Use the built in paint effects for a tree, its the easiest way.

yeah, GSter is right. But, if you want super-detailed then... well, you;re in for a lot of work.

CV = Contol Vertex, right click over the nurbs plane and the options comes up, click it then the control vertex can be selected and moved.

As for scenery heres an example of a displacement map using maya's built in "mountian" texture that I did via tutorial, heres the link

pbman- np!

wow, thanks Argit! :blush:

and xamagodx- how many times do I have to tell you- if you can do it in Complete, you can do it in PLE. Pay more attentian to the tut and try again.

And no, I will not make one for you, you need to learn to do these things on your own. I can help you, but I wont do it for you.
