    I'm reading the supplemental notes for CA155.

    Got the Tools menu up on my copy of FT3, most recent version, and I don't see Tool properties. I really don't use the menus much and probably looked right at the properties and read it as something else. Or didn't see it.

    Here is the bit I'm trying to locate. Page 4.

    Click the Green Raise Prescale
    Offset brush (RPO) and in the

    this I don't see: -> Tool Properties panel set the Height and
    Width of the brush to 500. Set the Value to 0.5.

    Thanks.

    Car troubles giving me a headache, so I'll see you all on Monday.

    Sorry for being a bit scant on the detail there, Jim.

    This image shows the box that must be ticked in the World Settings -> Editing tab for the green Prescale Offset tools to be activated, and also the open View menu showing the Tool Options docker toggle switch.

    When it is open the docker will be blank until you click one of the green brushes. Then it should display the Height, Width and Value of the brush you have picked.

    I thought I looked there. I'll look again.

    edit: I didn't have Tool Options checked, it is now and the height etc. shows up.

    Thanks.

    They disappeared again; however, I have been having computer problems. On the off chance something in FT3 went wonky due to my operating system hiccups, I removed and uninstalled.

    The paintbrish options showed up right away.

    If you accidentally hit the close button on the docking window, which is easy enough to do when your brain is busy thinking about whether you want a mountain range 'right there' or not, you just have to reopen it again from the View menu.

    Odd.... I could have sworn when I changed Application Look, the 'Paint Brush Options' went away. Can't seem to duplicate it now though.

    I think the exact set up of the window depends on how it looked when you last saved something.

    If it happens again just check to see that the docker hasn't just closed down - check the menu again.

    Its working again.

    On to the contour selection and making the continental shelf. I do the 0 to 1000 feet and I get a dotted line around every land mass.

    I do the Tools, Global Set, Altitude Value, and the dotted line is still there.

    Is that correct ? Or should the dotted line be gone ?

    I hope you meant 0 to minus 1000 feet?

    You should get a dotted line around the coast, and another one just a short distance out from the land. These are the rings of selected ocean floor around your land masses, and the dotted line is just to show you the extent of the selection.

    Then when you set the altitude to -1000 feet that should level all the sea bed within those rings to exactly -1000 feet.

    The dotted line will remain in place until you deselect, which I think is in the following instruction.

    I keep forgetting to mention I'm reading, and using, the Supplemental pdf, not the main pdf.

    I gathered what you were doing from the questions you were asking ;)

    Oh, I didn't realize it was that obvious.

    I'm kinda taking my time on normalizing the continental shelf. Other things are slowing me down from working on it.

    My problem is I sometimes read instructions too literaly, and sometimes not literaly enough. Or read what is or isn't there.

    I'll continue on as I have time.

    Don't you worry about a thing, Jim. A map will take as long as it takes :)

    Okay, I got past the deselect. And I did two two lines/areas around each island/continent before that deselect

    What version of Wilbur should I have ?

    I'm using 1.37.00.00 for Windows and the menus don't match all of the instructions in the Annual issue. I am still finding the items to do, but they are moved slightly from the Annual.
    • CommentAuthorLoopysue
    • CommentTimeNov 7th 2019
     
    The one I used for the Annual is version 1.89. That is the current version at the time of writing.

    It would be best to download the current version from http://www.fracterra.com/wilbur.html. Its the first one under the heading "Download" some way down the page.

    Keeps crashing to dekstop when I do the add noise and fill basins bit. I thought I did get that one, but obviously I didn't.

    Thanks !

    Now that doesn't sound good. You may have to export a smaller MDR file. The size is set in the final dialogue when you save it in FT3. If you have no choice but to reduce that size do it by 500 at a time so that you find the largest possible one you can use without crashing in Wilbur.

    The first one is 1.37. The setup file. The zip file just below it is 1.89.

    I'll try 1.89 now and see if it crashes again.

    Thanks for that bit of info, Jim. I could have sworn I downloaded that first one myself - the one at the top of the Download list near the bottom of the page, but I must have gone for the zip file on autopilot.

    Crashing can happen if you try to work with a file that is too large for the RAM on your machine, so it may still happen, but let's keep our fingers crossed.

    No crashing so far. And I'm past the second fill basins.

    I have 8 gigs of ram.

    No crashing still. And I'm at precip erosion. 5 passes. A bit slow here and there, but its working.

    It will be slow. I think I mention it in the text in several places. These are seriously large files. Check the size.

    Its progressing fine. I'll save out to mbr and jpg. Post the jpg here, and then quit for the night.

    I mean to my Tunnels and Trolls thread I'll post the jpg.
