Why does this keep happening?
Likely because something wasn't done right.

Not many details were provided for anyone to be able to help you find a solution so I'll provide some suggestions. If you would please provide more details about your specific issue, that would help others help you. c:

(Required File)
Check for the temp.map file found here:

If it doesn't exist, here's a replacement:

(Bad Exports)
Check for duplicate particle files found here:

Anything that ends with _01, _02, etc should NOT exist.

(Proper Map Setup)
Make absolute certain that your heightmap follows this guideline...
- 513x513 pixels
- Grayscale Mode
- Image is Flattened
- Only 1 Layer is used
- Alpha Channel is off
Here's a default heightmap file that should be able to work without any editing:

Let us know how things go.
...and in the wind, a whisper becomes a howl.
