"No need to draw contours or learn code!"

-The UI is simple and I learned the basics in about 10 minutes
-allows export to relatively common Wavefront OBJ files, now you're speaking my language
-Also exports to MAP files for Half Life, apparently
-can add water
-easy to navigate
-textures are easy to apply with the paintbrush and allows for texture layers
-can generate random noise for little bumps to add realism
-can export heightmaps
-allows for import of JPG, BMP, or TGA format images (and another one that I've never heard of, called WAD)
-the ability to view a wireframe version and also antialiasing is an option
-you can change the skydome


-default camera is a little slow (this can be changed, though)
-importing textures is a little weird, using an entire folder at once
-despite the large amount of formats it can write, the only one it can both read and write are TGM files (but then again, for good reason)
-OBJ files are exported with the wrong axis up; they are sideways when I import them into other softwares (but you could just rotate it)
-importing an unsupported format of texture crashes the program
-Flatten tool is slow, this can be fixed by changing the "Smart Threshold" in the settings to off


Although Nem's Terrain Generator has a couple weird traits, they don't distract from the productivity too much. I was easily able to get started. The controls felt similar to Vue, although not nearly as realistic. But it's a solid free tool. Much better than Sketchup anyways IMO where you have to draw the contour lines. I could simply tug at the landscape and it went up/down. I totally recommend it for your terrain modeling.

"Good tool - wish it could import/overlay, though"

Intuitive, easy to create a simple grid terrain and push/pull to create mountains, valleys, etc.


The radius/grid controls could be more fine-grained. It is not easy to grab single small areas and modify them. Also don't see a way to import bitmaps or other pictures into the scene. Moving the camera around to get different perspective


Handy, useful terrain editor. I wish you could get finer-grained control, and have a mechanism to import bitmap images and superimpose them on the terrain before raising/lowering it.
