I tried to place a spline on the terrain in Unreal but I can't seem to make the Landscape Input work

It's possible to get a basic HDAs that do that?

Thanks!

Hello. I don't think landscape input supports landscape curves. It will only input landscape vertices / polys and some other information (like material). You'd have to create a second input and use plugin curves as a work around.

Or it's possible to get an example of a digital asset that place a box on the terrain? I can't find a way to interact with the Landscape Input in my digital asset.

Here you go!

Couple of things to note, make sure you have Transform Change Triggers Cook checked to have the asset auto update.

And I also had to check Export Full Landscape Geometry, but I'm not sure if it's really necessary.

Let me know if you have any questions!
