Very cool. I don't do much programming anymore but always like seeing available libraries...makes me wish I had some time to explore. The planet example looks pretty good.

Pretty cool and it's open source. I like creating a greyscale for heightmap, so it follows what I want or need.

We have had several posts about libnoise in the past with some people using it to make worlds. I remember Su_Liam mentioning it a lot but I cant find that link. Heres some others tho.

By the way, anyone know any good software for opening the .raw file generated? I could only open it correctly with landserf. It's a 16 bit big-endian, or something. I think...

Fractal World Software -- Neverwinter Nights 2 Vault (http://nwvault.ign.com/View.php?view=NWN2Tools.Detail&id=63) there's also this program for generating heightmaps, although posted here for nwn2. It's a standalone program, pity the author's site is gone, there were some nice examples of an entire world generated with the previous version.

UFRaw - Home (http://ufraw.sourceforge.net/) you might try this? It says it's for raw image formats.

this is a year old thread but ....

seeing as the image is a apple/IBM ppc big endian 16 but SIGNED image
The terminal version of G'Mic will open it just fine
