Demo version of the Terrain Plugin

You can Download a trail version of the plugin Here, its functionality has been limited to a region covered by 4 DEM tiles around Mount Etna on Sicily. If you have tried the demo version and got no height data please download again as this has been fixed.


If you are using GE 7 and the Grab texture does not do anything then it is because GE 7 does not install the correct registry keys, if you uninstall and install GE 6 from Google that will correct the registry settings. You can then install GE 7 again if you want to.


When you have downloaded the plugin you will have a Rar file which contains all version of the plugin both 32 and 64 bit. Extract the version you need to your plugin folder of your 3DS Max install directory. Also extract the EGM180.DAT and TerrainLink.exe files to the same folder. That is it just start up Max and off you go.


You will need a working internet connection to activate the product after purchase on the machine the plugin will be installed on.
