im not sure how to make custome mountains and stuff but if your using gtkradiant go to plugins then there is a thing called gensurf. go into that and you can make terrain of a certain roughness and different kinds of valleys and junk.

Gensurf is good to do local elevations or in-map stuff. To start-from-scratch, I use EASYGEN: uses a B-W elevation map instead of equations and u place textures as painting over the triangles. (U should delete triangles where constructions are).
