A while ago I worked on a project using Ultimate++. It was never really finished (but managed to get the job done), but it's an interesting application IMHO.
WS3D (World Suite 3D - crappy name?) provides an easy to use interface for creating huge seamless 3D heightmap terrains. Editing is very visual and easy to learn.
Several import/export formats is supported.
I think some day I'll probably release the source but for now you'll have to do with these two screenshots (until I get around to capturing some better ones).
Working in texturing mode:
Importing a world from image file (in terrain mode):
Ultimate++ made my life much, much easier. If I was to rewrite this app from scratch, I would still use U++
