This weekends goals

Redo map generation so that continents are given region data.

Yesterday I did nothing, even though I've had the entire day free. Today I've been busy doing various social stuff but I don't want to let the weekend end without progressing. So I'm going to try and get one more step done. I have two little japanese plastic coffee drinks to help me.

EDIT1: Gauss Map Generation
Pros: A lot faster than seed or grow

Current heights randomly generated, a tiny bit too uniform I feel so I'll tweak.
One plastic cup of coffee down. If the results are good this is the generation method I may go with.

EDIT2:





Fast but the quality sucks (not continenty enough, no nice sized islands) so before hand I'm going to seed it and see if I get better map quality.

EDIT3:




Added random seeding to the start. Continents aren't clean enough. Even with a cleaning function they're all going to be joined together.

EDIT4:
Back to the seed method





Much better islandy type things now.

EDIT5:
Continent dectection is in. The ftp's being unfriendly so no picture.
Puts me back to where I was before but with slightly cleaner code.
Beforep pushing this into the main build I'll be updating it to add different land types. There's actually a height number that's incremented now so it might be nice to see where the mountains have landed.
For tonight though I've finished.

A few days later, ftp seems fine, don't want to make a brand new post. Here's the missing shot.
