Heading out into space for a while!
Due to another project I am working on, I have to shift my priorities a tiny bit. I have to squeeze in another theme early on, which is a space background. The base background will be black with scatt...

I just noticed this awesome blog by +Andy Goldman. After reading just the first paragraphs, I know I want more. I am definitely reading this in my coffee breaks in the next 54 (and hopefully then some...) days!

Crossing fingers and toes.
So, some people were experiencing problems running the demo. It turns out I was accidently using some .NET 4.5 specific code. At least I suspect that is the problem, as the demo now runs flawlessly on...

Plans for the future.

I have made available a very early demo version of my mapmaking software. The intention with this release is to see if it actually RUNS at all, and to iron out the worst bugs from the underlying libraries, get suggestions and feedback for future priorities. It's also nice to show that althrough it's moving slowly forwards, it IS moving.

You can crab it from here: genworlds

Note the "disclaimer" on the page, which probably could include alot more bulletpoints...

As it says on the page, this early version is made for 64-bit windows only. Apologies for that.

Some people have reported having the program crash. It seems images are still created and stored under C:\Temp\ though. I just uploaded a new version which should hopefully offer a readable explanation of what the problem is.

Hehe, yeah, it's a pretty hilarious process sometimes, but surprisingly  enough, it works. Sort of. But I am very happy you like the look of the maps so far! Share with your friends, I could always use more feedback!

So, my little detour into Starfields produced this in the first iteration. Not perfect, but it's comforting to see how versatile the software is :)

Test it!
A small demo version has been made available. As with most demos, not all functionality or "content" is included. But it is a good way to show everyone what this project is all about. It should be not...

IT is not done, but something is pretty darn close.
I know it's been some time since I posted an update here. Things have progressed, although slower than I had hoped. And somewhere along the way, I thought to myself "I want to get something out there....

, standalone app for now. It's just an early prototype. I want it to be a web app in the end, but there are challenges to be overcome there.

It's gradually getting smarter!
Pixel details. Up until now, land has been land, and water has been water. To create more believable maps, with further customization possibilities, that sadly does not suffice. The filters that are b...
