Hi all, I was wondering what is the best way of generating height maps for a terrain. I currently use grey-scale ones. Are there any packages for generating height maps ? Kindest regards, Steve

Terragen is a scenery generator, but also allows you to output the heightmap. Excellent tool.

There''s another program, Weird, which generates quite nice images that could be used as heightmaps, but I''d go for Terragen.

HTH.
