Just wanted to add that World Machine would be another (non-free) alternative.
Well, it is free, at least if you don't want/need to create heightmaps bigger than 513x513 lol :P
If at first you don't succeed try again, and if you don't try again, you'll be hit in the face with a shovel!

Thank you Shadowkiller for the excellent guide.

But I have a question. How can set the terms for the generation of upland and lowland areas in GeoControl 2? To make such a mountain in some places, but not randomly.

Isolines. They give you a huge amount of control over features. There are a number of tutorials on the geocontrol 2 site that have plenty of great info.

Is Photoshop absolutely needed?  It seems like I could do all the same stuff in Paint.net, or am I missing something?

Thanks for doing this BTW, Shadow, I am sure this is gonna make all the community maps that much better. :)

I suck!! But WE are AWESOME.  We started a unit.  What's that?!  YOU WANNA TOUCH MY UNIT?!! :P ^^12thVR Recruitment Page(clickthepic) ;)

Any dedicated paint program could probably do it, as long as it has blend modes for the layers. Photoshop is just what i use.
