    when I say terrain I don't mean textures, take a look at badlands and how there canyons look. I wanan know how to shape the ground in certain ways

    That's done with special brush faces called displacements, which are basically meshes that you can sculpt. There are a few tricks to using them properly, though, so I would recommend reading through this wiki article for a how-to and things to avoid: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Displacement

    Halfway through the video, YouTube crashed. Is this a sign from God?

    Unrelated but I literally started watching that video the second my playlist switched over to the same song
    I was like "Why is my music echoing"

    I like how this thread has been derailed from "Displacements" to "Demonic Encounters when Carving"

    No sauce, it's a joke, just look at the terrain in the last 30 seconds of the video. That 'terrain' is remarkably invalid.
