Can you elaborate? What did you do recently in your files?
Hello, My name Is Rhakorra!

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called
present.

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.
Determination, Perseverance, and Strength of Will.
