Though you're too place cliffs around the island (excpet the beach), here are all the limitation of cliff constuction.
Cliffs look best when they're paired with waterfalls and rivers. Create an impressive landscape for you island with our simple guide to waterfall cliffs!
Create a 4 x 6 cliff on the first level of your island.
Create a 3 x 4 cliff on top of it that will serve as the cliff's second level.
The parts of the cliff marked with a O on the first level will be reshaped using the river construction tool to create a waterfall.
The parts of the cliff marked with a O on the second level will be reshaped to create an uneven but more natural-looking river that will flow into the waterfalls.
With the river and waterfall comple, cut off the O parts of the upper cliff to round out its shape.
The cliff looks best when connected with a natural flowing river on the first level, with the waterfall flowing directly into the river.
Decorate the surroundings by planting flowers, adding custom designs, and placing furniture to complete your cliff!
A 3 x 3 Cliff With Rounded Corners
|You can round the corners of cliffs that are at least 3 x 3 in size by cutting their pointed sides
These rounded courners are 0.5 in size, so you can't decorate it with any designs, flowers, or furniture.
A 2 x 3 Cliff with Rounded Corners
|You can also round the edges of cliffs that are 2 x 3 in size, although you can only round out one side of the cliff.
Attempting to trim another side of the edge with existing rounded edges destroys that side of the cliff.
A 2 x 2 Cliff with Rounded Corners
|You can also round the opposite edges of cliffs that are 2 x 2 in size, which results in a leaf-shaped cliff.|
You're not limited to just one cliff design though! Below are some references from Mora's
