- the fast, easy and innovative terrain generator
was one of the main goals to develope a really fast
terrain generator. If you had to wait over one hour
to see the result of an erosion, the creativity gets
blocked. Speed is needed to let the work flow!
might give the feeling of being an advanced artist,
if someone knows many different encrypted named algorithm
like FB, Perlin, Multi Fractal, Voroni of different terrain
that is not making a good artist or game developer,
and at least no good landscapes. So in GeoControl there
are no encrypted names for algorithm to learn,
but the algorithm are named according to the results.
You can concentrate
on creating terrains and not learning, what the effect
of more or less "grain" and "threshold" is.
And this applies not only for the algorithm, but also
the controls. That makes GeoControl to may be the easyest
to use terrain generator.
to make it even more easy, GeoControl ships with
over 200 presets!
main problem for a terrain generator is to get really
natural structures. In nature the structures are
similiar but always different) but not linear fractal.
So, if you get closer to a mountain the typ of structures
changes. From far away a mountain might look clear
shadped, but coming nearer, rock fields get visible
and the before
smooth looking rock faces may get rough and clustered..
the new and completly self developed Dynamic
Level Generation GeoControl offers
as first terrain generator control over every detail level
during creation. So you can produce different
fractal structures at different detail levels.

senior stuff writer at Renderosity
I first want to state how great the documentation is
"His documentation is precise, explicit, and complete."
"I was very impressed that with this new program,..."
"Do I like the product? Absolutely! Do I recommend
it? Absolutely! What is also important, is that it
is a lot of fun to use."
the comnplete review.
All 3D landscape tools include the ability to create
and edit terrains, so why do you need GeoControl? Quite
simply, none of the 3D landscape tools that I've used
(and I've used almost all of them) can come close to
the realism in GeoControl terrains. The reason for GeoControl's
stunning realism is in the way it was designed.
GeoControl is an incredibly powerful and flexible landscape creation tool.
If you're one of the many 3D artists who have struggled over the years to
create realistic terrains for your 3D landscape software, GeoControl is the
answer. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in rendering natural 3D
scenes. Not only is the software excellent, but support for it is excellent
as well. The developer, Johannes Rosenberg (known in the 3D community as
cajome), is incredibly helpful and responsive. He also releases frequent
updates to GeoControl that make considerable improvements to an already great
product. He's clearly passionate about this product, and all of us are beneficiaries
of that passion."
