To make a realistic mountain you might try EasyGen terrain Generator, there's a damn good tutorial on lucasforums (search for 'rgoer' in the author spot).

_lightmap is just the mapmaker's term for the pattern of lighting in a map...to have lights, just right click in the grid area of Radiant, go down to 'light', click it, then edit it's properties with the entity window. The key 'light' will change how big the light is, 300 is default Value for the 'light' key. Then you need to compile with a compiler that processes light. It depends which Radiant your using as to which compile type you choose, so I can't help you until you tell me what Radiant you're using.

And 69_UnKnOwN_69, some great tutorials on mapping are here, they are for JK2Radiant, but they're pretty similar to GTK and from these tuts I'm sure you can get started figuring the rest of Radiant out on your own. GL all.

I use JK2Radiant 1.2.1

To make mountains either use EasyGen as Devmapall said or in JK2Radiant you can make an entity and highlight it, then press "V" on your keyboard to make little squares appear allowing you to click and drag the parts of the texture up and down, side to side. *If only that tutorial was online still. Must remember to ask the author about it.*

dump 1.2. Outdated, underpowered and harder to use. Get 1.4.0 from www.qeradiant.com
