    Info Automatically generated maps.

    Hi folks.

    I'm in the process of writing an application that generates maps typically used in fantasy settings.

    I'd like to inform you of my blog which is located at http://generated-worlds.blogspot.com/

    I encounter totally different problems from those of you who are artists and handcraft your maps, so if you're interested in seeing my results, and
    my challenges along the way, please stop by. And, I'm no real cartographer, so there's a ton to learn; I appreciate constructive feedback. Always.

    I'm also posting about my progress at Google+

    Happy mapmaking.

    Looks very intriguing. I'm interested to see what the generated rivers look like.

    Today I added landmass textures, and i posted a screenshot on the blog. As I say in the blogpost, this is just the first iteration of many, but I'm feeling a bit giddy, - I think the result is very promising.

    Check it out here http://generated-worlds.blogspot.com...h-theming.html and leave some feedback if you feel like it
