    I can't wait to try it. I might use it on the map i entered for the competition to decide on what world to use for the Atlas. I did say I would come back to it.

    Well that would certainly be interesting to see.

    Let me know if there are any problems? I created 5 new worlds in a row just to test everything to make absolutely sure it all worked according to the instructions, but that doesn't necessarily mean its a perfect method, and definitely not the only one.

    I am actually redoing my Myirandios world using my method; so it will be great to use your method on another of my worlds. I will have to do more on Dun Fingolfin first.

    I could use this for my Tunnels and Trolls game world. It currently only has bits and pieces of a world map.

    This is likely the installment that will get me to subscribe. Can't wait to get into it!

    Thanks for this, Loopysue! I'm having fun with it. Here's a link to my first "One Day World!"

    Full disclosure, it took me longer than a day just because I had to play with it and learn the ins and outs. I've got a good enough handle on it now that I think further efforts will take a lot less time.

    Edit: Well, the link didn't work as planned - I meant to share an *.fcw file from my OneDrive. I'll figure out how to do it correctly and then post the link...

    You can post up to a 1,000 pixel wide png or bmp. I don't remember what the megabyte limit is though.

    Wow! No wonder it took you longer than a day. I didn't cover any of the climate options at all.

    That's a great map! :D

    Thank you, Quenten, Loopysue!

    Fractal Terrains and CC3+ did all the heavy lifting for the climate, temp and rainfall, though :). I set up a custom export a few years ago for a game where I wanted lots of fairly realistic detail for the world, and used that one instead of the contours from the annual.

    These tools, combined with the step-by-step from this annual, are really awesome!
