Hero Extant: World Generator - Created by HoboBen (Rating 100%) A random world generator, part of a larger project. Now open source!!! As part of my work-in-progress RPG, I've completed the terrain-generation stage of my "random world generator".
Outputs to PNG files or a simple binary file, with instructions, so its perfect for generating worlds for your own games, too!
Draw a nice 32x32 tile for each pixel of your map, and you've got a huge new random world in a few seconds.
For windows, but works on Linux with wine.
New, unique, random terrain every time!
Realistic wind and rain simulation
Detailed temperature bands
Detects contiguity of terrain bodies
Tweaked for optimum terrain variance, for balanced game play.
Supports maps of up to 2048 by 2048
Exports data to PNG
Exports data to simple binary format
Actually fairly fast now

Holy crap - spiffy. The rivers look a lot better too. One thing to consider adding now are larger bodies of in-land water. Posted : Tuesday, 01 June 2010, 08:59

Check it out!!!
