MDTerrain is a Terrain Generator that uses Midpoint-Displacement to generate a surface with fractal properties.
It is written in C++ and uses OpenGL for display.
You can download it here: mdterrain.exe (92 KB)
Click and Drag with the left or right mouse button to rotate or zoom in. Use the + and - Buttons on the panel to increase and decrease the heightfield resolution.
Version 0.5 - 14.05.2005: + Code Cleanup + Memory Optimization + Smoothing filter + Read data from tga file Version 0.4 - 04.12.2004: + User interface panel + Rewritten heightfield code (again) + Lighting possible + Save screenshot and heightmap as tga file + Lots of small little features and bugfixes - Reading from file disabled Version 0.3 - 15.03.2004: + Better and correct midpoint displacement algorithm + Mouse interaction more intuitive Version 0.2 - 11.01.2003: + Triangles instead of quads + Can read heightfield data from a textfile now + Small bugfixes Version 0.1 - 21.12.2003: + First Public Version

|That's a mold-breaker. Great thininkg!|

|Wow, this is in every respect what I neeedd to know.|

|i dont think roughness is related to the fractal version. it is just used to vary the height offset when making a subdivison step. but i will have a look at the sourcecode soon and let you know in detail!|

|How is the parameter "roughness" defined and within what range? How is this parameter related to the (surface)fractal dimension?

|sorry, it is currently not open source.|

|Hi. Is there any way to get source code for this program?|
|anonymous 29. August 2008|
|Great tool! Fast, efective, helpfull...
Tips: More exportvariants (tif/tiff/bmp/jpg/jpg200 etc.
Needless to say that it would be nice if we could export "the mesh" direkt to a "*.obj","*.fbx" file etc. for professional Software like Maya, 3dsMax, Massiv, Endorphin, etc.
... then for us professionals: Iteration dept upto 4096 would be, well, means, has more satisfaction... We are all High Definition buffs...
... yes... a feature to cchange the color would be nice...

*.tga is just an image file like bmp or jpg. you should be able to opene it with any image viewer.
i dont know if there is a way to use it in 3dsmax, but i guess there should be one!

|WOW! This is GREAT! a work of genius I only have one problem... *.tga what is this? is there any way I can import this terrain map into a program like 3D studio max???|

|very helpful with this setp by step feature!

|thankyou Very nice it should be perfect if we could change colors ! ;))|
