Do you mean ternary plots like this?

enter image description here

That was produced with the Ternary Plots graphics in my Presentations package, which can be purchased through my web site. The various commands are:

TernaryScale, ToTernaryCoordinates, FromTernaryCoordinates, TernaryReplacementRules, DrawTernaryGrid, TernaryTriangle, TernaryPlotRange, TernaryPadding, TernaryPlot, TernaryLocator, TernaryContourDraw, TernaryRegionDraw, TernaryDraw3D.

The actual code for the above plot was:

<< Presentations`
 {data1, data2, temp1, temp2},
 data1 = Table[{temp1 = RandomReal[NormalDistribution[20, 2]], 
    temp2 = RandomReal[NormalDistribution[30, 4]], 
    TernaryScale - temp1 - temp2}, {40}];
 data2 = Table[{temp1 = RandomReal[NormalDistribution[25, 8]], 
    temp2 = RandomReal[NormalDistribution[50, 1]], 
    TernaryScale - temp1 - temp2}, {40}];

 plot1 = TernaryPlot[
    TGBackground -> LightBlue,
    TGLabels -> {1.4, {"x", "y", "z"}, "side"}],
   CirclePoint[ToTernaryCoordinates[#], 3, Black, Orange] & /@ data1,
   CirclePoint[ToTernaryCoordinates[#], 3, Black, Green] & /@ data2]
