What have you tried so far? Don't want to tell you to try things you've done anyway.


Personally i find the 'Map Displacement' 'Brush Displacement' and 'Soft Paint' tools can make good landscapes. Not sure if they'd work for games though.

There was a plugin that could import terragen terrains. I think it was something like u|v I/O collection. Terragen (http://www.planetside.co.uk) is a nice and free landscape renderer. For generating landscapes check also worldmachine (http://www.world-machine.com/).

Otherwise you´d have to model it yourself in workspace.


I´ve written a short tutorial how to use terragen to render out overlay masks for trueSpace. This works for modeler only, since workspace doesn´t support material layers yet. http://forums1.caligari.com/truespace/showthread.php?t=1103
