when thinking about switching from L3DT to Terragen for terrain creation I noticed that Terragen 2 is coming out at the end of january for members of the terragen mailing list to test.
I'm part of that mailing list and hope to get my hands on it at the end of this month - on the one hand to create good terrains for the techdemo but also on the other hand to try to create cool new skyboxes.
So I stay tuned and will inform you about the progress concerning all of this here
BTW: Terragen 2 can render very cool clouds now and also objects like trees (gives us more oportunities for skyboxes )
The TG2 Technology Preview will not be released at the end of January
as we had estimated.
We are close to completion and doing everything we can to make it
available as soon as possible. A large amount of new infrastructure
code has been written which needs to undergo testing before release.
We are also making decisions about the feature set and capabilities of
the Technology Preview, as we don't want to give everything away in
the first preview.
We will not announce any further estimates for the release date until
the work has been completed.
Looking forward to see it, though I doubt that anything can beat the upcoming TechDemo terrain...
Please let us know your impressions about the new version of Terragen, though - I made the base texture for the TechDemo terrain with the current version of Terragen, after all.
