It requires making basic shapes, then using the clipping tool and vertex manipulation to create natural looking shapes.
It isn't hard to get errors doing things with those tools though, so just take time and practice, and see what you can come up with.

i bet some maps (like that river map) are made with a terrain generator :x

cuz when you do mountains be hand they usualy look better than the ones in that map

basicly its triangle shaping (vertex edit, do NOT clip, i repeat DO NOT clip to recreate hills)

Zero doesn't use terrain Generators... those mountains were done by hand. This next map I am doing I am trying to take what he has done the the next level... you'll see... the terrain looks damn good! :)

the mountains in the map do look a lil bit pyramid-like, but I wouldnt say, that it looks like it was done by a terraingen!!!
