Terrain is a complex new feature in Active Worlds 3.3 that allows worlds to have continuous ground objects generated on the fly by the browser.
Terrain can use up to 63 unique textures, each of which can be rotated in one of four directions in each cell.
Terrain for a world can be generated in one of two ways: it can be edited by hand in-world using the browser, or it can be uploaded to the world from some other source (e.g.

 UnrealWiki: Terrain
Terrain in the Unreal Engine (UT2003 and beyond) is based around creating a large grid of polygons based on a heightmap and centered around a TerrainInfo Actor.
A terrain could be a small area of a map within architecture, such as a sandy courtyard, or the basic world space, such as with a large outdoor level.
The terrain editing is realtime in the editor, you define various layers (as you would in photoshop) and you paint over the terrain with various opacity brushes.

This is cached for performance - we don't support terrain changing from opaque to non-opaque at runtime; you'd have to write a subclass to handle this.
The priority is used by the terrain-border code to figure out, given 2 adjacent, unlike terrain squares A and B, whether A should extend borders into B or vice-versa.
In general, terrain archetypes are assigned a priority that starts at 0 for sea-level and goes up as the ground gets higher, so mountains tend to have the highest priority.

If this is your first terrain, we recommend a large space: a box 8192x8192x8192 UU in size should do.
The terrain map you create externally should be a basic height map – an 8 bit grayscale image where white is interpreted as the highest point, and fl is the lowest point.
Terrains are affected by ambient lighting and normal lights, so you can use those as you would anywhere else in a map.

 3D Studio Tutorial - Creating Terrain Objects
However, such terrain models are mainly used for the more technical aspects of terrain modelling such as cut-and-fill, visual impact analysis etc. If you want to create a good visualisation of a terrain model, AutoCAD is not the best tool for the job.
However, the process of terrain creation within 3D Studio is simplified if all contours are drawn on the same layer and there are no other objects in the drawing, so some pre-processing of the data may be required.
The terrain object may change colour as the image map is applied but the image does not yet display correctly because the mapping default settings are not designed for this particular effect.

There are two general approaches to generating synthetic terrain, either for use in a game or for rendering into pretty images (or both).
Once again, the terrain is generated beforehand, unless you make an arrangement with the program's author to distribute the terrain tool with your program.
For rendering your terrain (if you are not already using a rendering package such as POV-Ray), the 3D Engines List provides pointers to a large number of realtime rendering packages, many of which are cheap or free.

The terrain must be a reasonable representation of the terrain so that the same dilemmas facing the historical commander face the wargamer.
Two basic ways of doing this is to build terrain modules, such as a village or hill feature, that can be randomly placed on a flat board.
Terrain boards allow detailed and well sculptured terrain while terrain modules are more flexible, and require less effort.

Terrain analysis is a great tool to use to generate the data that a high level pathfinder uses to find coarse paths to move units across an entire map.
Terrain Analysis Tools: Definitions Developing a sophisticated terrain analysis system is a lot like developing a good image processing toolbox (as you may notice terrain analysis and image processing share a lot more than that simple analogy).
Used as terrain analysis (not its original use), the zone system in Age of Empires suffered from two problems: the unbounded size of the zones and the fact that obstructions were not taken into account.

What happens a lot with terrain's is that people just make a terrain, search some big prefab like this tower, and simply put it somewhere on the terrain, in the middle of nowhere.
Same goes for the amount of terrain's, while you theoretically could add 800 terrain actors in your map, there is no reason you want to do that as it could slow down a lot.
You can't have it because a terrain only works in the zone where the terrain actor is in, so this is going to give you probs.
