Hi,

There is also this one that I made with a friend (Andres Jesse Porfirio) with Irrlicht (Windows/Linux C++). It can save tiles in OBJ or Collada

Also, there are real world elevation data with with 30m resolution, avaliable for everyone. I was downloading it from here: http://gdex.cr.usgs.gov/gdex/ . It requires registration, and there may be other sites, where it can be downloaded.

This is great guys and this thread is also meant for you to share your own findings and feedback.

@christianclavet

Yes, that is also one cool editor that you guys made with Irrlicht. Thanks for sharing!

Hello everyone,

you can always have a look at "Artifex Terra 3D", also free (as in beer) and I am always very happy about feedback and critics. :)
I am currently in the process of reworking it and making it more agnostic and open, as in integrating assimp and plugins - specially export / import geared towards various engine formats.

*edit* I am also happily assisting with material conversion.

Cheers,

Hey Nauk,

Welcome to the forums! :) Yes, I got to try Artifex Terra when I was doing Ogre3D some time ago, and it really is a great terrain editor!

Here's my built and a little test video 2 years ago :mrgreen:

I just thought it was more focused on Ogre3D so I did not include it on this list but it's good to hear if you do have plans of making it agnostic/open and Urho friendly. ;-)

Added now!

Hi, all!

Please tell me which of terrain editors can be used with Urho3D terrain node? Or is there any reason in using it?
Sorry for probably stupid question - I never used terrain before, but tried it in Urho and don't quite understand the workflow.
I tried using Terrain in Unity and see it as powerful tool, but is there something for Urho?
