Hello users and developers!

I am pretty new to the whole "terrain thing" in 3D modeling and about to try several softwares to find out which suits me best in the end.
So far I am really enthusiastic about InstantTerra however when comparing map sizes from AAA titles with my 2k x 2k I am really into creating bigger ones.

With the trial version you can just create up to 8k x 8k though. Correct? Concerning this I would be interested in whether you did it on purpose or just haven't implemented larger sizes yet.

The fact that I haven't paid a single Penny for your great software up to now makes me feel bad when demanding something but for my personal testing uses it would be really helpful if there wasn't a "limit".

1. I have never been able to work with terrains that large, concerning complexety
2. I don't know if my current PC will even handle it
3. I would love to see how comfortable it is to work with it in InstantTerra

Mainly for these three reasons I would love to have larger terrains available, in order to try everything out perfectly.


Best wishes to all of you

and keep up the great work!

    Hi,

  Thanks for your feedback.

  Please send the email address that you used to get your Instant Terra license to support@wysilab.com, and we will upgrade your free evaluation license to the Enterprise Edition, so that you can test with terrains larger than 8k x 8k.

  Best regards,

Hello again,

first of all thank you very much for this opportunity, I will send the email adress ASAP! Just shows how amazing the team at InstantTerra is. Really appreciate it. :)

Although I have another questions about the topic itself. Are you planning on increasing the map size for trials in general or will it remain some kind of exception?
A friend of mine used to work a lot with WorldMachine in the past but is also looking for alternatives right now. If he decides to try InstantTerra - should I tell him to wait for an update, to write in the forum as well or just contact you on your support address?

Might be a little more complicated than just using it without a limit for us users. If you already experienced negative situations with removing it I can definitely understand the decision though.

Thank you and have a nice day all!

  Our policy is to provide a free evaluation license limited to 8k x 8k terrain directly on our web site, and a non-limited free evaluation license on request.

  So just tell your friend to send a quick email to support@wysilab.com, and we'll be happy to send him a non-limited free evaluation license. ;-)

  Best regards,

Perfect, great to hear. I will tell him what to do if he needs unlimited terrain size.
Thank you for the explanation and fast responses!

As far as I am concerned this thread can be closed now.
