Here's how you can change the look of Mars with the FX DISPLACEMENT SIZE property:

A negative value turns the mountain into a crater.

A value of about 15 makes it look like the real Olympus Mons.

We can make it look more exciting by using a value of 30 (artistic freedom)

A value of 60 clearly is too much. But since it will probably take at least 10 years before the first human will climb Olympus Mons I think we can get away with it 😁
