[font=arial]ISLAND GENERATOR[/font]

domen-koneski.png

[font=arial][color=#424242]I've been working hard on an island generator. We were using premade islands lately and when I spawned alot of islands already I've gotten bored of almost the same results. I've changed this so now the mesh/terrain of an island also gets manipulated by procedural generation - in this case I've used Simplex noise. For now you can find three types of terrain:[/color][/font]

[font=arial]I think this would do just nice apart from having different island shapes, biomes and sizes, the variety continues! I'm ought to work on LOD system and draw distance system, so even potatoes can run this game. When I'm done with this I'm looking forward to implement animals, so we can start testing how well can they behave in our beautiful world[/font]
