Decided to improve upon my map generator to get away from the boxed in look of the terrain. Here's what happened in the process. Calculated a random offset from the center but forgot to rand() it so each piece was equal distance away.



Well, at least it's not boxy anymore.

It's not a bug, it's a feature :3

That reminds me of mine, I had one exactly like that, but here's a similar one:

Another fail image that I like a lot (...actually I don't think this is a failure I think I just turned off the main island and amped up the number of secondary islands):

This is the kind of output you get from the finished generator (along the lines of what I was trying to make): http://i.cubeupload.com/3T9fVR.png

Why is it broken? It looks fine to me. Unless it's not supposed to have that many colors?

robolee, hey, these look really cool actually. I wouldn't call them failures for sure Smiley

How are you generating your maps? Noise + tresholds?

Nope, my methods were pretty simple but intensive... I used randomly placed circular plateaus (size determined by distance from "peak", biggest being in the center), then sent out many "runners" which move in a random direction each step and raise the ground at their position (small sized circle for the main island and single pixel for the fringe islands), I then did range clipping to reduce the map to 5 or so discrete steps and did a few passes to grow the shallow water and beach. All in all very inefficient, but my own way of doing it and it looks decent enough.

I read a few things on midpoint displacement and noise maps and stuff but eventually I just thought 'fuck this I'll do it my own way'. I could do better, make it much more efficient, easier to tweak, more predictable... I was throwing stuff against the wall and seeing what stuck.

Bitmap font offsets and interlacing fail.  I kinda like it though.

The font is inspired by the old IBM PS2 / VGA BIOS, so scan lines would actually be quite fitting... hmm.

Depth information for a chunk of landscape encoded into RGB channels.
Technically not a fail as this is working correctly, but it's not meant for a human to gaze upon.
This is amazing
