Does anyone know of a good way to go about making islands?? I was thinking about using a displacement map in photoshop, but I was wondering if anyone knew of another way. I want to just make 1 big island.

just tested this out.

make a plane with 100x100 segments (or more)

then make a weigh map

switch your view to weight shade mode

use Map>textured points. Use a procedural

now you can see the effects of the texture. play around with it and the scale to you get an island shape.

Once you get that far then you finish the tool

click on translate tool. Hit N to bring up the number panel. Set the falloff to weight map and drag up.

that should give you a good starting point.
