Map generator.

Post by pinback »

I've checked in a map generator to the github:

https://github.com/joltcountry/core/tree/master/perlin

Usage notes in the README. Now we can make maps for 4X games! Oh boy!

Here is the map generator in action. In case you didn't believe that it generated maps:

(Note, this is in "empire" mode, where instead of displaying terrain height levels, it just shows land or water, using the very same ACSII characters used in the seminal 4X game, "Empire"!)

How would you compare this to the terrain generator in OpenTTD? It has several options including snow cover, if any, lakes, rivers and how mountainous the area is.
