Introducing GAIA

The Terrain & Scene Creation System For Unity 3D

Introducing GAIA

GAIA enables rapid and precise creation of gorgeous looking terrains and scenes - out of the box!

What is GAIA?

GAIA is an all in one terrain and scene generation system for Unity 3D that makes creating stunning environments that even Skyrim would be proud of fast and easy!

Whether fully manual or fully procedural or somewhere in between Gaia will help you create your scene and then sculpt, texture, plant, populate and even set up your character, water, lighting and Post FX for you!

Gaia comes with a whole suite of high quality sample assets and everything you need to get your game started are included and free to use. Stamps, Textures, Grass, Trees, Rocks, Houses, Farms and Props are all included and exploring the worlds that Gaia creates for you is just as much fun as creating them!

Last but not least Gaia integrates with the best assets on the store so that enhancing your environments to deliver truly AAA results really is just a few easy clicks away!


All other things being equal, which game will do better when it launches – the one with the epic environments, or the one that is drab and boring? I am pretty sure we all know the answer to that!

What is the most important and expensive asset on any project? If you answered people and time then you have it absolutely right! Gaia massively reduces the time and cost of creating your scenes while at the same time dramatically improving their quality as well.

In fact, one customer estimated he could reduce the time to create each island in his world from two weeks down to two days and deliver a better result. He had over one hundred islands to create, and the substantial time and cost saving he made with Gaia was invested into delivering better game play with nicer assets!

Speaking of expensive things, because Gaia is an all in one solution, Gaia saves money and time selecting, buying and learning other tools as well. You don’t need to go in and out of Unity and run slow and manual import process to see your end result – everything is right there in the editor.

And have you ever seen a product that looks good in the screen shots but then when you go to use it you discover it is just too hard, and worse that there are no tutorials and slow or even non existent support? Gaia has consistently been at the top of the asset store since it was released because of our obsessive focus on usability, support and delivering value for money!

With GAIA You Will:

  • Create your terrain by stamping mountains, hills, mesas, lakes and rivers
  • Spawn your resources to texture, plant, and populate your terrain procedurally
  • Setup your wind, water, player and post fx with a single click
  • And then have fun exploring by pressing Play!

GAIA is Different Because:

  • It’s standard – There are no special shaders or other tricks that could cause compatibility problems (you can safely delete Gaia after you have created your scene);
  • It’s stamp based – Terrains are created using stamps, which is a visual, intuitive and precise way of getting exactly the feature you want at exactly the location you want;
  • It’s extensible – You can create more stamps via the scanning system, allowing you to easily source stamps from terrains, raw files, meshes, or even images and textures from the internet;
  • It’s replicable, adaptable and rule based – all aspects of terrain texturing, planting and object placement is done procedurally and is seed based, which allows it to adapt to new terrains, and makes it perfect for networked games;
  • It’s all in one – all the assets you need are included with Gaia and are free to use – textures, grasses, trees, buildings and props, skies and lighting!

Gaia Extensions

Gaia eXtensions (GX) are integration’s between Gaia and Third Party assets. Gaia eXtensions make it quicker and easier to create your game and can range from art assets such as terrain textures, grasses, trees and 3D models to shaders and tools which improve the visual look of your scene. If an asset has been mentioned here then it has been certified GAIA COMPATIBLE by me and they will be high quality assets. Anything that is not in this list but which says it is Gaia Compatible on the asset store has not been approved by me and your mileage may vary.

What is GAIA?

Gaia is a Unity Editor plugin that allows you to quickly and easily create gorgeous terrains for Unity 3D.

GAIA Manager Does Not Display

Gaia is deeply integrated into the editor environment and because of this Gaia needs your project to be kept in good working order.

If your Gaia manager does not display then it will be because of a compilation error. To resolve this open your Console window and then hit the clear button. Any compilation errors will remain and show up in red. You will need to either fix the errors, or remove the asset or script that is creating them.

When you have done this allow Unity a few moments to recompile, and Gaia manager will be available for use.


Introduction & Quick Start

These tutorials have been made with a mix of Gaia versions and while the user interface may change a little between versions the underlying functionality and concepts remains the same, so if the interface is a little different to the one in front of you, then don’t worry too much and stick with it.
