    Post Hi I'm new to this...

    Hi, I was wondering if there were ways to make a random map similar to a projection of the earth using a program of some sorts? It needs to be clean so I can use a fill in tool to make borders of countries and what not.

    Is there a random generator in GIMP or any other paint-like tool?

    I haven't used GIMP in a long time but in the version I have you can use:

    XTNS > PATTERN > RENDER MAP
    My Finished Maps | My Challenge Maps | Ghoraja Juun, my largely stagnated campaign setting.

    Actually, in my version of GIMP (2.6.6) it's File->Create->Pattern->Render Map. There's also Land and Flatland options that are similar. Flatland is probably what you want.

    I have 2.4.6 (yikes! much older ), so they've obviously changed things quite a bit.
