Hello, I wanted to know if anyone here knows of any good Terrain generators/editors with the requirments listed below. 1) Import/Export: MUST export to a a standard 3D model format (such as .3ds or .X). Also, It wouldn''t hurt to be able to import models as well. 2) Editor: Has easy-to-use, WYSIWYG, terrain editing. 3) Textures: Must be able to apply textures, either using a procedure or a brush. Textures need to look *decent* at a close distance (not pixelated). Im already searching the net for some, but It would be really great if you guys could make some suggestions.

Try Terragen. There are FREE plugins to export to different 3D formats, plus, it allows you to generate 2D terrain heightmap images that most 3D applications can import and convert into a 3D model.

Search google for Geo3D. I don''t know much about it but it might be useful. I think it''s only a demo though.

Feel free to try my editor at http://terraformer.valcian.com. It exports .X meshes that you can use for a LOD terrain engine, and object positions are exported in XML format.
