How do I use the Environment gizmo in Horizon Worlds?
The Environment gizmo lets you access settings for lighting and environment. Keep in mind, you can only have one Environment gizmo per world.
To use the Environment gizmo:
- From Build Mode, select the Three Line icon, then select the Build icon.
- Select Gizmos.
- Grab the Environment gizmo. You can now edit the properties by grabbing the gizmo and selecting the Three Dot icon with your controller.
- Select an option from the Lighting dropdown to add ambient lighting (or a sky) with a preset color and intensity.
Adjusting Fog Density lets you change how light spreads through the world. The higher the number, the denser the fog, and the harder it will be to see objects at a distance. The fog will take on the color of the ambient lighting (sky).
You can also show or hide the floor grid. The grid is 64 square meters in size, with each tile representing one square meter. The grid can't be edited, moved or selected, and doesn't have a Properties Panel, but it's a solid surface that players and simulated objects can move around on. The grid is only visible from above.
