Amazing. Not one full stop in that entire post.

Anyway, grammar aside, there are a few terrain programs out there. Try searching Google. GameDev member Raduprv has a decent one here: http://hme.sourceforge.net/. Another excellent terrain program is Terragen. The vast majority of terrain editors are greyscale heightmap editors, and operate like picture editing software (Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, etc.) They have tools like Generate Terrain (using an algorithm, usually Perlin noise, or something like that) Darken (lower terrain), Lighten (raise terrain), Smooth Terrain (a simple blur filter), stuff like that. www.gametutorials.com have some heightmap/terrain tutorials, which I've found quite handy when coding terrain editing software. They're in the OpenGL tutorials section...
