Hi,

 

Not at the machine where its installed at the moment but the Manual has a whole section devoted to File Structures and where various file types go.

 

Depending on which version of Windows you have installed (you didn't say) the name of the folder varies.

 

On most Windows installations the folder is "hidden" (apparently Micrsoft feels that is a good idea) so you may need to unhide it first.

 

Can I suggest you rename it to something other that "terrain.ter" when you make changes as I believe that may replace the defualt map.

So pre 4.000 you used to embed the map in the Mission Editor (there is an option in the Mission Editor menus).

 

Eventually you'll need to post the map seperately as they will grow in size in accordance with the new terrain engine (with effect from "early" 2017).

 

For the time being I think the embed option remains current (again can't check for you).

Can you please say me where is the hidden folder, then I can unhide this folder and find it
