    This is an awesome tool. But when you alter the terrain highmap it´s getting a new TerrainBackup ID
    which make you have to reassign everything all again. So the problem is it doesn´t keep its TerrainBackup ID for some reason.

    Would it be possible now, with full respect that you haven't charged for this tool, but would it be possible to set it up so that it would backup a multi-terrain, where several terrains are the child of a single parent for example? I find myself wanting to make some changes to terrains, where to use this backup requires several repetitions one for each terrain chunk - and to restore becomes something of a nightmare for sure. Otherwise, want to say thank you for this your effort in making available Alt-Backup and it works so well. I think I have noticed that if I remove a terrain from the scene then it is gone and can not be restored, but once a user realizes that the backup is not a complete copy they don't make the same mistake twice!! (usually). Alt_Backup only keeps track of changes to the original in scene terrain.
