Is it possible to create a greyscale heightmap of the terrain?

You can export 16 bit RAW or PNG grayscale heightmap (from the text exporter plugin). This contains the data in 16 bit (and not the normal 8 bit associated with normal greyscale images). You can convert the exported images to 8 bit with programs like Photoshop but you will loose terrain precision.

You can also create your own plugin to write 8 bit heightmaps (it is pretty easy as you can use 16 bit export as example).

In general you don't want to use only 8 bit because this is not enough to represent height details, that's why we didn't included a 8 bit export out of the box (and we preferred 16bit).

Regards
