    This is a very impressive project. Some really great looking maps are coming out of it.

    The first maps were good, but the one with the earth-like texture is awesome. Looks like the map of a real planet. Could you elaborate a little on your method?

    The infinite improbability drive was invented by the Galactic Government's research team on Damogran - so you can claim prior art !

    Wilbur has a lazy programmer that just used the Windows memory management system and didn't bother to handle out-of-memory conditions in a reasonable manner. When the program hits 2GB of total memory usage including undo buffers and scratch buffers then it dies. The 64 bit version has the same behavioral limitations, but the memory ceiling on the x64 versions of Windows is 8TB rather than 2 GB so it takes longer to make it die.

    Implementing a disk-based system will take some work and is unfortunately lower on the priority list than many other features.

    OK, this latest map is just too awesome... I've been trying to create something just like it for ages. By all the mighty powers in the universe, PLEASE provide even a low-detail tutorial for this! It's simply amazing and this is the perfect type of map for one of the major projects I'm working on

    (also repped, obviously haha)
