Hair linked to fur has no effect on the fur

Hi, I've attached a hair system to fur but if I simulate it and let the hair move, the rendered image displays all the fur in the exact same place, like it is not linked.

There are around 1 million bits of fur, with a hair grid around 30x30 to simulate this (I know it's not the most accurate but I just want simple movement). It's quite a large ground plane which is why I need the amount of fur, any help would be appreciated, thanks.

edit: it works fine on a smaller scale, is there something I could have accidentally disabled in the fur?

Look for a node that's something like "furCurveAttractors" or something like that and try increasing radius.


Did some tests, make sure that the hair system is curves not pfx hair, you may also need to adjust "End Length" and DO NOT TOUCH START LENGTH!!! Every time I moved the "Start Length" slider I got a lovely Maya crash... been like that for years now I'm pretty sure.
