Hello,

Is it possible to generate floating islands of various sizes in Voxel Studio, and if so, what is the best way to get started? 

Best regards,
Tao

You have two main avenues:

A) Use the meta-mesh component
B) Create a floating island extension

If your floating islands are the same from one run of your game to another, let's say this is an MMO where you will have these large floating islands always there, the best approach is (A). This is how the turtle island (which could be floating) was created.

If you want different islands every time, you will need to code this behavior in an extension, which is option (B)

We can provide further pointers depending on which main avenue you pick.

Thank you for the fast reply! 
The islands should be pre-defined, but editable in game.

Ideally I would like to do something like making an extension that allows me to pre-generate islands that an artist then refines. We will have 4-6 very large ones and 50-100 small ones, so some measure of automation would be very welcome. 

That said, any way to get an initial good looking shape to work with would be a great start!
