Many thanks to mhaze for his file 'foam for posting .tgd' that can be downloaded here: http://www.planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,15618.0.html . This is among the best foam setups I have seen. I coupled it with a .tgc clip file by Goms called 'lakes and small mountains' that can be downloaded here: http://www.planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=4484.msg105223#msg105223 . The lighthouse model is by Ade downloadable at Ashundar.
Surfaces for the distant mountains include a clip file by FrankB: 'Simple camouflage surfaces' http://www.planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,13078.msg129458.html#msg129458 . And procedural grass (PGS - evolution v2) clip file by dandelO which you can find and download at the Planetside forum.
Render time was a killer: 60.48.46; but, was expected due to the water area and foam.

WOW Bob!!!! This is just awesome. I too thought it was a photo at first, had to look at the details to see it was Terragen. Sometimes you wonder if the long render time is worth it but seeing this pic makes it all the worthwhile.
Haven't been around the last while, toasted my hard drive and lost everything. Slowly getting things back and will be rendering again soon.
Hope to be rendering something as good as this sometime. Well done.

A planet or two would be....nah...never mind :)LOL
