Want to create an entire world in under five minutes?
Welcome to FT Pro. Want to generate rivers, lakes,
craters and continental shelves? Welcome to
FT Pro. Want to generate maps from real world Earth
data? Welcome to FT Pro.
Worlds can take so long to map. Coming up with a reasonable
world in the midst of a sci-fi gaming session, or creating a
detailed fantasy world from scratch, can take hours - days
even. Not any more.
For the fastest world generation, simply click the Next World
icon. A fractal-filled moment later, FT Pro delivers you an entire
world - complete with climate, rainfall and temperature zones.
Not the world you imagined? No problem, just click the icon
again, and again, and again. Then export that world as an
image, animation, icosahedral, VRML, or CC2 Pro file.
But with FT Pro you can be even more God-like. Starting from
a random world, real-Earth data, or a flat plain if you prefer, you
can "paint" altitude or climate adjustments to suit your whim.
You can raise mountains from nothing and consign entire
continents to the deep. FT Pro applies its fractal magic with
deft realism, requiring minimum artistic skill from you. If you find
you are repeating yourself, you can create scripts to automate
If that's not enough, you can get right into the FT Pro's world
generation settings to adjust coloration, percentage water, land
sizes, maximum and minimum heights, world circumference,
axis inclination, roughness, and more. Add background
images, even transparencies to create cloud cover and other
effects. Import height maps from other software, and smooth
them to perfection.
You have complete control over your view of the world. You can
rotate to any point and zoom in to any level of detail. FT Pro
can display the world in any of 24 map projections, including
Mercator, Gnomonic, Mollweide and Orthographic, or create
your own. To help navigation you can apply a number of grids
to the surface, with lines of longitude and latitude spaced to
FT Pro works stand-alone, or as an add-on to CC2 Pro. If
you've got CC2 Pro, you can export a single map of your whole
creation, or multiple map tiles of increasing detail. The maps
are linked with clickable hotspots, allowing you to create an in
depth atlas-style in one fell stroke.
