(Sorry if repost, the first one doesn't appear on my board)

After toying around with several tutorials, I realized that if I want to create quick maps, I need to create filters to it. So, following RobA (http://www.cartographersguild.com/tutorials-how/1142-%5Baward-winner%5D-using-gimp-create-artistic-regional-rpg-map.html) tutorial, I started to create the the filters. I post here, the first one, which generates grass land and sea.

The use is quite simple. You create a new image (I used 500x500 image with 200 dpi) where you paint in black on a white background the general region where you want to have a land. You then apply the filter (carto->make grass and sea) and done.

Please tell me how can I improve the script and what other tutorial would you like me to turn into filters.
