I have The Landscape Creator by the same author, but I believe The Landscape Utility has more features. It would be good to get it into the CPC archives (hint, hint)! ;)

My pleasure, I didn't know it came in two versions though I did find the name change a little puzzling.
Will send a copy off to you beginning of next week :)

Cheers,

Peter
