...but guitar is love and doesn't require patience, just love.

Sounds great, Bobby. I wish I could play an instrument. I have a guitar as well, but I never managed to get something meaningful out of it.

So, even a .ter file is not allowed? Thank god I didn't use any. I didn't expect that, since .ter is somehow a genuine Terragen file extension.

That was my confusion as I often generate a .ter in 0.9 to start my erosion experiments on, I seem to get better results than using a Generate  in TG4 terrain. As I mentioned unless I have an epiphany re Cliffs I'll pass on this and put my time to less frustrating tasks like practicing guitar heh heh...and doing interior renders as I seem obsessed with them of late. Don't have the patience for some things I used to have, but guitar is love and doesn't require patience, just love.

There are those features in 0.9 that a lot of us miss, with the various options for noise and the previews with sculpt functions, guess as with everything experience and faithfulness to the program counts for naught. We all got a lot of practice exporting those terrains in various forms and learned a lot, I suppose.

I'm pretty sure that Danny's rules DO allow you to use .ter files if they were generated completely in Terragen, including Terragen v0.9, so sculpting in v0.9 is allowed and so is v0.9's generation features. I believe the restriction only applies if it originated from another source such as a DEM or photoshop or scanned model etc. But Danny may correct me if I'm wrong here.

Just because milk is white doesn't mean that clouds are made of milk.

If you generate your terrain in 0.9, then you should be fine showing a 0.9 save file if necessary, yeah? I think you guys are too worried.

To sort this out what I wanted to use was a DEM sourced .ter that I had approved back in my Renderosity freestuff moderator days and apparently that made it a sick bird(ill eagle)
something borrowed,
something Blue.

Probably a stupid question, but I do not get around much, I suppose other programs can import DEM files? I know what a DEM is, I have a couple downloaded for long term experimenting. Sorry you can't use it, nonetheless.

DEM means Digital Elevation Model which is usually terrain data from a real-world location and not Terragen-generated.
