    I do not have this Xtras Menu nor the land option to make a map in such a way, but i am very interested in this height map script. This is right up my alley. Wellp Back To The Gimp Registry (which is how i found this forum )

    I believe the old any image creation scripts from the XTNS menu have been moved under File>Create (going from memory...)

    Sorry to dig this thread up from the grave, but this is correct. It's File>Create>Patterns>Land

    Or, if you desire a non 3d-ish map, Patterns>Flatland

Also shown are the settings I used for the generated images, only changing the seed.

    Note that these create an image, nothing needs to be done first. I (creatively) used seeds 0, 1, and 2 respectively.

    Now to modify/extend this to draw outlines as well!
    I like the look of this idea, but I can't find it in the menus to even try it out. I'm still new to GIMP. My menu doesn't look like the one displayed. Do you know if they moved it into a submenu?
    Thanks in advance

    Yuppers, in Gimp 2.8 it is under File>>Create>>Patterns. Posted below is an example at max detail and 2000x2000 px. This is the Flatland pattern
