I'm really interested in developing a game.

I want it to be like age of empires style.
looking like 3D
But actually 2D but just not a birds eye view (more 3d looking)

I would like to use Unity engine
But have no skills in game design besides the concept of the game in my head.

I would like to start with a game map and have a view port so as to be able to see only a portion of the map which scrolls as player moves left/right.

Once I get to that stage then I would like to add the sprites.

How do I go about creating map in Unity?
I would ideally like to take a country map and have it 3 dimensions x,y and z but only z where there hills/mountains like The Alps in Switzerland for example

Please can any members advise me the best route to take.

My programming is okay, but about graphics and game dev I know nothing
but am willing to learn each step as it comes along.

I read some of the articles on the site and they kind of blew me away.
But I'm sure if I go one step at a time then I can do it.

So how do I go about creating a terrain map in Unity with contours?

Thank You
