Mountain 3D is a landscape generator allowing creation and modification of mountains or other landscapes. The result can be seen under a certain angle and light, and desired colours.
Random generation, based on fractal technical give numerous kinds of landscape, with profile more or less sharp or eroded, and elevation more or less high according to parameters. One can thus save a shape and later the relief can be distorted by general elevation, while improving its definition (mesh degree), and changing profile and erosion.
Trees have their own fractal method (see Trees models . )
After creation, the landscapes can be distorted by elevation or digging around a point or a line drawn on the screen.
Rivers and their valleys can be placed. Only spring is paced: the valley is automatically dug
Cliffs an terraces can be added.
It is possible to smooth portions or get rough portions of the landscape.
Partial sections of the ground can be regenerated in fractals.
Ground look can be also customized: sea level, grass, rock and snow levels can be easily controlled, with different kinds of trees, generated in 3D fractal. Contrast and colours can also be controlled. The sky is created by fractal method (plasma) an the weather (sun, mist, reflection in water) can be simulated.
The mountain storage is done on description files, allowing seeing them later (view parameters and relief description), associated with the picture itself (Bitmap file *.BMP or compressed JPEG file *.jpg).
Real landscapes can be loaded in Mountain 3D by means of text or bitmap files representing a map with elevations coded with numbers or colours. Aerial pictures maps of the real ground colours can be imported.
Finally, you can, starting from a view, animate them by creating one or several videos afer having defined the camera fly by a smooth path in 3D thanks to Bezier curves.
