A link someone gave me a year or 2 back. I've just came across an old post over at Terranuts of mine that reminded me of it. Might be of use to some of you now. :)

Thanks, great.
Do these need to go through another app before using in TG2, tried downloading the Grand canyon east and west. The files had no extension and failed to load properly as Heightfield load". Suggestions :)

I have been to that page before, you need to convert them to a .ter file with 3DEM,
or some other program like it, for it to work.

Aye, sorry, should have said that too. 3dem will do the job.

Terragen2 will load .geotiff format dems, although without a world file the heights will be off.
You can download a program to work with them at http://www.visualizationsoftware.com/3dem
