    Thanks, it really is amazing what can be achieved with CAW. Especially when you adjust the different objects' heights and rotations. :D

    How do I get the cave not to show the insides without putting up a mountain?
    I'm also using the Asian Rocks, but they have giant holes on the bottom, so they keep revealing their giant hole every time I raise it up for the ceiling!

    I'm not sure I understand your first question. The mountain I have is only used to blend the cave into its surrounding terrain. It doesn't actually hide the cave's interior. The large rocks are what do that.

    As for the ceiling, I primarily used the Rock - Cavern - Asian and Rock - Cilff Wall - Asian rocks. I rotated them, so their long flat surfaces were parallel to the ground. This left the open edges either facing towards or away from the mountain. In most cases, I positioned the open edges of the similar rocks towards each other (requires a 180 rotation of one rock). This covered most of the gaps. Then I used the Rock - XLarge - Asian rocks to fill in the gaps.

    If you don't want to include a mountain side, the best way to cover the blank edges would be to face two rocks' blank edges next to each other. I actually have two of the largest rocks facing each other for most of my cave roof. Like I said in the tutorial, this was the most time consuming step, but it'll come together with enough tweaking. :wink:

    Let me know if I answered your question.

    Thank you so much! :D I have already used this way of making a cave, but i made it a tunnel, it looks cool, thanks for the inspiration, i also used retaining walls as walls for the tunnel , which also works well! :mrgreen:
