    Post let me introduce myself ...

    well met fellow mapsters,

    i'm new to cartography stuff. been working on a fantasy world for a couple years now, did a lot of PnP mapping, got tired of the endless redoings, decided to try a software approach.

    recently started using ProFantasy stuff, just Fractal Terrains so far. very much pleased with this approach VS the PnP way of doing things.

    hoping to glean some world-building hints and helps here.

    ~~teef

    Later: was pointed to an excellent FTPro tutorial by the designer, waldronate: Tutorial for Cartographer’s Guild. _VERY_ helpful for FT noobz.

    thanks everyone. i'm trying to get started with the world-building thing using Fractal Terrains. anyone know of a good noobie guide for this?

    i've got some moderately detailed ideas for parts of my world but i like the randomness that FT introduces for the parts i haven't settled on. that said i can't really figure out how to do what i want in FT, hence the request.

    i've watched the tutorials for CC3 -- which i also have and expect to port my FT world into it -- and was hoping for something like that with with FT ... but no joy yet.

    more questions than answers i'm afraid.
