I purchased HM2GG 5.3 for GGC in 2020.
Today I needed to use this tool, but I can’t find the previously downloaded tool anywhere on the disks. There are also no working links to download HM2GG and the person is not responding.

Something happened to the creator of HM2GG and why doesn't he respond in PM?

I really need a tool. Can someone tell me where I can download it?

Right now there are 2 choices available which are ..
XHeightmaps for £1.00
https://gamecreator.store/product/36381

Or Prebens Terrain Generator for $19:95 which is far more sophisticated
https://gamecreator.store/product/36714
Or available as a dlc on steam even cheaper

I doubt where the old HM2GG will even work now as classic has been updated a lot since 2019.

In general, it is correct to write on this topic. The first one (https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/224296) should be removed.

Thank you for your detailed answer.
I haven't made a decision yet because I'm busy with other things.
I was wondering if it is possible to export the generated GGMax height map to GGClassic?

Preben's terrain generator is awesome, and as the author of HM2GG I no longer work on the tool as it was originally for classic and it was quite basic. If you really still want the tool, I have it somewhere archived on my external drive. I no longer use Classic or Max as there are better tools out there.

Unfortunately no
Max uses a totally different terrain system and only allows import of Heightmaps .
There is no function to export it either.

Yes, I need a simple terrain generation tool. The fact is that I am teaching my son, he is 8 years old, game development using GGClassic as an example, which is why at this stage I need an easy to understand and use tool for GGC. He and I are just learning what height maps are; he is already confident in manually creating his own maps, including using triggers. And then one fine day he asks me a question, how to make a map like a real one!? Actually, this is the problem I encountered. To be honest, I didn’t even expect such a question from him. I would give him GGMax, but he has my old computer with a CPU without SSE4.1 and as you understand, this introduces some restrictions on the installation and use of GGMax.
