Terraforming is your ability shape the terrain around you, the terrain being organized in a grid pattern. The game features a physics system, differing greatly to systems seen in other online sandbox games. This means players are unable to construct floating sky fortress’, or have any floating terrain grids of any type.

The system features grids instead of blocks, and players are able to interact with these grids rather than place and remove them. You are able to raise, lower and flatten terrain; digging tunnels is also an important aspect of LiF terraforming. If not reinforced, a tunnel will collapse due to the weight of the grids above it.
