    Help Fractal Terrains Pro Installation and Configuration

    Hello Hive Mind. I am a new user of ProFantasy progrmans and a new enthusiastic in mapping. I bought CC# and some add-ons and get they runnig with no problems, but I am having some problems with Fractal Terrains Pro. Where do I put the "Terrain Data" folder that is avaiable to download togheter with the programs? The "Terraformer Package v0.50" is also a little problem but at least it comes with a pdf that explain things. In this regard (Terraformer) the only thing that I have to do is copy the archives inside the folder "T050_Lgt" to the folder "oloring" on FT right? All the rest I can let in the folder of Terraformer and navigate to is as needed right?

    I see in the manual that I can "Click the Advanced button and select Metric Units if you would prefer to use meters, kilometers and degrees Celcius" but in my program there is no "advanced button"....

    My version is already 2.3


    Thanks in advance

    Mateus

    Edit: I also cant find whre I can chenge climate... Oh God... Am I reading the right manual? =)

    You're in luck, the creator of Wilbur (the engine behind Fractal Terrains Pro) is a regular here by the moniker of Waldonrate. He will likely be along shortly and give you the best advice for that.

    Thats good news =). I am trying by myself, but both the program and the manual are not very intuitive and I am having a really hard time understand and putting in pratic the concepts and tools of FT.

    Step zero when working with FT: download the update from your registration page on ProFantasy's web site. Step one: Visit http://www.ridgenet.net/~jslayton/CGTutorial/index.html for a good starting point on using FT. FT's interface has changed a bit over time and the manual is probably older than the software. I'm not sure what's shipping these days. Step two: play!

    As an aside, that avatar icon to the left should look like two familiar program icons...
