Default Terragen (Digital Landscaping) Contest [RULES]

Terragen is a free, simple to use digital landscape generating program. A brief tutorial, along with details of how to download Terragen, can be found here.
We ran this contest first in 2008, and it proved very popular. We're hoping we'll get just as many entries this time around!
It's up to you as to what you go for - can be anything from a realistic earthscape to a bizarre alien world.

Dates:
  • Entries can be submitted via a PM to Dra'Tuisich-Novae from January 10[sup]th[/sup] till Febuary 21[sup]st[/sup].
  • Voting will take place between Febuary 22[sup]nd[/sup] and Febuary 27[sup]th[/sup].
  • Winners will be announced on the 28[sup]th[/sup] of Febuary.

Prizes:

1st Place - 10pts
2nd Place - 5pts
3rd Place - 2pts

(The top 3 all receive official TO winners seals too).

Rules:
-An entry consists of one image, rendered from a Terragen landscape of your own creation.
-This must not have been edited using any other program (nor use any of the advanced features for subscribers only).
-The maximum size for your image is 1024x768 pixels.

It looks like since the last contest they've released Terragen 2, can we use this program as opposed to the original version which is shown in FT's tutorial?

It's in the enclave, so it looks like you aren't able to see it yet.

If you want I can PM/Email you the Tut if you're interested in the comp. The images may not show up though, which makes it less useful...

I'll get it moved to somewhere you can see.

As for Terragen 2... I'll have a look!

[EDIT] Looks pretty cool, but the free version doesn't seem that different from the original program except for the user interface. For the sake of simplicity, I'm just going to say use Terragen 1.

Can we have one later that allows modified ones too?

If this one is popular, I don't see why not!

If it's not, you could always enter it into the Artwork contest?

Also - to anyone who couldn't access the tutorial - it's now in the Contests board so you should be able to see it

Right!

There have been a distinct lack of entries, so we've decided to extend the deadline a bit to give you all time to pull yourself together and bang out an awesome entry. Doesn't take long to create some fantastic results, so give it a try!

Well I've been doing things, but they've all been in Terragen 2 since I didn't want to download another program. :-\

I understand that you're interested in keeping the playing field level, but would it be acceptable to let me enter as long as I gave you the picture beforehand so you could make sure that it was not beyond what Terragen is capable of?
