    @Joe. No, not at all. Personally I have absolutely no gripes with FT's output; never have. I was always under the impression that (like Wilbur) there are a ton of things that one can do with it, both in terms of terrain and maps; you just have to dig around.
    I think the main reason people immediately recognise FT output is simply due to the fact that FT is THE only global terrain app- how many do you know...?

    I just bought a pen-tablet CC3 and FTPro because I was so inspired by the gang here.... I've been following some of your tutorials.

    I just d/l-ed FT Pro yesterday and I can't find Tools>>Actions>>Incise Flow or Map>>Show Other Shader>>Show Image Climate. And there is nothing besides "bump map" and "normal map" shaders available. Oh yeah and that Gaia deally (which looks ok but you can't modify). Do I have the wrong version? I'm super bummed, and guidance would be appreciated.

    As far as starting a world, it is much easier to start with a world that's not flat than it is to start with a flat world and go from there. Pre-scale offset editing in FT Pro makes life much simpler when painting because it works with the continental shelf and scaling rather than fighting them. It wasn't a clean implementation and the number are a little fiddly, but it's not too awful once you get used to it.

    This is the old prototype GIF example of the concepts involved: http://www.ridgenet.net/~jslayton/Tutorial1.gif

    The actual steps I used in the example for this thread were somewhat different than shown in the GIF and I'll see about getting them written up.
