Use... bricks? I dunno, what sort of scale are we talking? Do you just want a few close-up shots of the clones marching through (in which case you'd have to focus on making the floor nice and detailed, but not much else), or will you need the full landscape (wherein you'll need to use a load of bricks making those weird tower structures)? At any rate, make it a bit more interesting than a flat lanscape - add a slope, or trenches, or something - because flat = boring, no matter how much you 'greeble' it.

Well, I'm going to need a lot of landscape, and I was thinking some trenches and such.

Okay, good. Is there anything specific you need help with? If not, I suggest looking at Rocko and Keith's MOCs for landscaping tips in general. Also, make the mushroomy things either quite small or hollow to cut down on bricks used.

In the like 2 pictures I've seen, the giant bulb-plants are pretty big, so I could exclude them.
In the scene from Episode 3, the land looks pretty flat with some rocks here and there, should I design it like that?

Nah, make it more interesting. Razz Trenches, as I already said, are a good idea. Maybe a valley, or otherwise just a big hill? A dry riverbed would be an alright start.

TO me from Esp. 3 it looks like a beach planet without the water.

Like a long hole dug in the ground. Razz About 3-4 bricks deep? Stick some cheese/1x2 slopes along the top edges to make it look a bit less square.

As a footnote to what PD said, dried out trees would look good. I know its a common technique now, but look in the Desert Haven Flickr group for a 'dead tree' method.

Hmm... For trenches you could build a layer of duplo onto the base and then build lego on top of it?

Vary the depth of the trenches with plates so it doesn't look "man made".

You need to be specific.

Oh, whoops, didn't realize Uber was asking for help. Mistook A for the topic starter, and was surprised at his lack of info.
