    How do I make realistic mountains, hills, etc.?

    I can't find a tutorial for this anywhere and whenever I try it sucks.

    If you mean displacements, you can try those and have blended textures and place rocks, bushes, trees, and such around the displacement.

    Otherwise you can stack some models of giants rocks like that

    Personally I prefer this way to do my mountains because it's rendering a lot better than the displacement method.

    Use these models, models/props_forest/cliff_wall_05.mdl and models/props_forest/cliff_wall_05.mdl.

    If you want to do a desert theme with cliffs, you will be forced to use the displacements ;)
