Planetgen isn't starting up - Lewx_Lucas - 10-06-2014

I've got Planetgen 4.05. It is indeed loading, but it is not starting up. And no error icon appears.

I know nothing about this program, but do you have all of the software requirements?

I've just loaded it, and it works okay for me, but looking at the results I'm not so keen on it. The end results need a lot of post work to look acceptable as planets. So even though I have recommendded it in the past, it really isn't up to scratch.

A better program is Fractal Terrains, which is available as a free demo version, which you can use and then capture the result quite easily.

Fractal terrains allows you to model a world, then raise or lower the terrain in various areas to tailor the landscape to your requirements.
