Map Generator improvements this week

There have been some nice changes during the past week, although not many of them as visible as some people might like them to be.

  • Development has branched to a new GitHub version.
  • Old version has been made available as well.
  • Maps are now perfectly compatible with The Settlers II.
  • Some very nice speed optimizations that make generating a map 100% faster than it was.
  • Also some bugs have been fixed while doing the optimizations.
  • Height map generation has been improved, better looking mountains (less “rings”).
  • There is more variety in landscape: coasts and swamps have been implemented, and there is mountain meadow around mountains.

Up next:

  • Improve user interface!
  • Bring more customization options back!
  • Provide different kind of presets to make it easier to generate maps to one’s liking.

Visit the Map Generator! Or try the older one if you want to play around with more options.
