Artifex Terra 3D - Terrain editor for easy and sophisticated landscape painting and editing

Artifex Terra 3D is a terrain editor application for height map based realtime modeling and texturing of virtual landscapes. In other words you can create outdoor scenery and levels for your game, mmorpg, architectural model, etc:

It combines the usability of classic 2D painting programs with 3D content generation with a playfull 1st person perspective. Offering a great variety of powerful and fine resolving tools and filters while remaining well within 2 boundaries: simplicity & practical productivity.

The fast learning curve enables inspiring 3D world creation within a very short time, even for beginners. Artifex is designed very brush-centric, because we strongly believe, that the brush, even after centuries, still is the artist's most important tool. That in mind, we are of course always open for user suggestions that lead to further improvements and make terrain and outdoor scene generation even more fun and to quote one of our users: "addictive".
