The “3D Map Generator – GEO” is especially created for illustrating complex geographical 3D maps. In opposite to the current “3D Map Generator 2” the new “3D Map Generator – GEO” can be used to create 3D maps with much smaller map scales.


With a few clicks it is possible to generate isometric 3D maps in 3 different orientations with heights and depths in the terrain. As basic shapes there can be used text layers, vector shapes, Smart Objects or one of 52 vector country* shapes. For designing the map there are different new tools, textures, effects, brushes and 37 icons and elements available. The generated 3D maps can be edited and redesigned for unlimited times. No layers will be flattened. Of course it is also possible to put own textures onto the surface and to use own brushes, effects, icons or other elements.

The “3D Map Generator – GEO” creates professional 3D maps which are perfect for illustrations, presentations, game design, as terrain descriptions, location descriptions, directions, for map reproduction, as weather maps and much more. The user interface of the panel is clearly arranged and easy to handle. Shape, texture and background libraries are extendable for future updates. The icon library can be filled with own icons or our icon sets that are available seperately.

    Hello. I'm an old customer of GEO and Map Generator V2. I just downloaded the most recent updates. I want to install these update versions but am having trouble completely uninstalling the old versions. Am using PS CC2018. The videos aren't very detailed, and with regards to generator V2, am unable to install using zxp installer. Any more detailed instructions for Mac users?

    Hi! You do not have to uninstall the ZXP. From version CC-2014 Photoshop ZXP files are no longer supported. If you have the latest Photoshop version, please read the instructions PDF and watch the short video tutorial. It‘s the same for both, Mac and PC. Mic

    They have different features because the purpose is different. The 3DMG-GEO is especially created for illustrating complex geographical 3D maps with much smaller map scales. There are more possibilities for designing the surface but less design presets.

    The 3DMG-2 is more for bigger map scales and more details like buildings, vehicles or peoples etc. There are many pre-made design presets. And this tool works as actions set from Photoshop CS4.

    For a decision you have to ask yourself for which purpose you want to use the tool. Hope this will help you.

    Hi Orange Box, Is there any restriction regarding the size of the elements which I want to turn in terrain? Right now the plug in is working fine with small elements - let say 512px X 512px. But when I try with bigger elements I am able to make everything as usual and when I click apply the automated process stops in a moment where the highest part of mountain is selected, depths are not added and there are no textures - the mountains are just blue - thats all in the file with the 3D map. When this happen I cant add texture or anything else. Can you give me any hints? Best Regards, Vlad

    I purchased this plug-in (second one from you today!) and went to create my first map. I am able to create the shape layer (1st step) then when I try to add depth or height to the map it says "no open top layer".....I can not paint elevation to my map. I am on a Mac and have Photoshop CC 2018 (19.1.3)

    Hi, just bought this plugin and installed it. (Photoshop CC, latest version) Installation went fine but when trying to "create 3D map nothing really happens) I press the "left, frontal, right" and it processes the image for a short while but nothing more happens. I have tried on the pre installed maps, shapes, text and everything else... Still no result. What am I missing, or what should I do?

    3d map generator generates and extruded map from a shape , what this one does is it allows you to create actual 3d maps with stuff like mountains and valleys by using geo data ( so each color on the shape corresponds to a different height giving you an 3d like presentation of the full terrain not just the extruded map

    Hi wperezvega! I think you have to draw more heights. Looks like your gray scale map is too flat (watch the short tutorials from the PDF link list). Use the blur and melt function to smooth your map. Also you can play with the altitude of your final map BTW > wrong item ;) mic

    Hi Mic, I have purchased both the Game Map Generator and the 3D Map Generator GEO. I am using PS CC 2017.0.1 release on Win10 x64. Both programs installed correctly, however, only Game Map Generator works (panels, actions, etc). You stated in an earlier post that 3D Map Generator GEO is PS CC2017 ready, however, PS CC2017 is indicating that the extension was not properly signed. Is this due to the recent update to PS CC2017? If so, could you please update the app for the latest release? If not, please suggest a possible work around. I have tried both standard installation and manual installation. In both cases the issue is the same, whether or not Game Map Generator is installed. After the standard install, I removed the extensions from the roaming folder before trying a manual install. I am well versed with technology. Your help is greatly appreciated.
