One assumes the scenery will be made of modules.

You need to let people create modules and then let the join modules together.

EG: Landscape. They select "make landscape" from a menu. You ask them for X and
Y vertex count, and a vertex spacing. You give them a flat mesh, and let them
tug the verticies up and down. Save and load those bits and then let people load
in several at once and manipulate them around - include a tool to join edges
together by lining up verticies.

Stuff like that.
