just create an endomorph in modeler where you move a plane with enough segments up a bit. You could also create another endomorph where you move the plane down for deeper areas.

Then use the airbrush tool with the vertex map set to your up or down endomorph, and voila a displacement paint tool.

If you go through, Proton's videos, you will find a demo using the endomorph and airbrush to create a landscape.

Thats half the price of buying Silo. I feel a little sorry for plugin developers, it's all cut throat at the moment. LW usually has the ability for most things but some of its implimentations are simple dreadful for the user.
