I have decided to have another go at my continent map for the Westerlands using Gidde's tutorial adaptation, but I'm running into some trouble generating the mountains. Did you use the random mountain placement like in Ascension's tutorial or did you figure out a way to "direct" them? When I try to adjust the cloud layer on my own, I always wind up with mountains that ghost into the lowlands instead of actually looking like they're attached. I appreciate any tips you have.
Also, what dimensions did you set for your map? I started mine at 4000px to a side, but ended up reducing it by half because it was really bogging down my system.
