Zonestab

The Zones Tab

The Zones Tab is the actual “meat and potatoes” of the entire Realm Crafter Engine. This is where you can place the terrain, scenery (trees, buildings), change weather, add water, lava, particle effects, sounds, music, player zone in portals and much more.

The GUI interface for the Zones Tab surrounds the preview / work window. The GUI controls are fairly straight forward, even though there are a large amount of changes that happen with in the window depending on which part of the zone you are working with.
