    Some free terrain tools I put together using the excellent terrain tool system included in 2018.3. The hydraulic erosion tool in particular wouldn't have been feasible without the shader functionality that's now been exposed. My work could certainly be improved but the tools suit my needs and I've still got a game to make. Feel free to modify and redistribute.

    I have to admit I'm not really familiar with it. When I downloaded the terrain tool samples I could see that there was just one contributor and the last commit was 5 months ago. I thought it might be a little presumptuous to make my own contribution there. Perhaps I was mistaken.

    Hmm it doesn't have to be their github, you can create a fork of their repo and put your addition into the fork repo.
