How do we make all terrains show up? Pacific, Mediteranian. I tried creating a new folder but it doesn't show up as a terrain choice.

Only "terrains" supported are spring, summer, autumn, and winter. But you can place any terrain files you wish into each of these folders.

The folders are blank until you fill them.

Is that true for the spring terrain folder or does that one have to be empty? Another question, HEHE.

Any folder that is blank will use EAW's terrain by default. You can load any terrain set into any folder you wish.

The Terrain set mappings I gave in the ReadMe.txt were my recommendations only. You may want to use JayP's Terrain set for Summer, thats fine. Just unzip that set into the Summer folder.

You can fill all the folders, but if you do then you will never get the EAW terrain back without going in and deleting all the .terr files within the EAW folder.

IMHO it is better to leave one empty just in case, but hey that's up to you. I mean anybody that has snow blowing in an open window and a woodstove set on High must be willing to take a chance once an a while, right? So go ahead delete them files, me, I'll let Matt's product do it for me.

You do not need to leave any folder empty.

Selecting the Use EAW Default Terrain option deletes all *.TER from the EAW folder and does nothing more. This effectively resets the terrain to EAW installation default.

The Load Spring, Summer... options do the above first and then load the appropriate terrain files from the appropriate terrain folder.
