Terragen is a terrain generator program that is available as a free download from the Planetside website.

Currently I'm working on a terrain from the Renderosity Terragen Challenge so that I can enter their latest Terragen Challenge. This challenge involves downloading the terragen file specified for the monthly challenge and then creating a "look" for it. One of the rules is that you can't change / alter the landscape. But what you can do is give it different cloud, atmosphere and sun settings. And I just found out today that you can also change the surface of the landscape meaning you can make the landscape itself look different - ie snow, grass, soil, etc.

If you would like to take part in this (and the other) monthly terragen challenges you first have to become a member of Renderosity.

I have had and used this program before - just for my own pleasure - and you can see one of my renderings below:

So I'm off to fine-tune my Terragen challenge..........................
