This isn't work! Terragen is fun! I'm looking forward to making some serious beaches for my kids, Mike and Aiko.

Amazing stuff, just beginning to learn the ropes. I look at the stuff I made over the past 2 days and think "I can do so much more than that". Gonna take a look at these tutorials tomorrow.
