Terrain marked missing, but is not missing!


The terrain in my current project (in Unity 4x) shows up in red in the Hierarchy and is marked “missing” in the Inspector (see attached – in the Tag section). Apparently it has been marked this way for some time because I checked old versions in Unity 3x and they have the word “missing” in the Inspector too. However, the terrain is not missing. It is right there in my project and seems to be functioning just fine. Anybody know what is causing this “missing” thing? Thanks.



It is because your terrain’s prefab connection is lost. To fix it, create a new prefab called Terrain or Land or whatever, and drag the terrain from your hierarchy to the terrain prefab in your project.
