Landmap generator for linux


(jaycun) #1

Does anyone know of a good landmap generator for linux. Something like Terragen or World Builder?

I am having problems installing Terraform.

yes, its called The Gimp gg

filter/render/nature/clouds OR
filter/render/nature/plasma

then just select how rough the “landscape” should be (more noise = more roughness) and then grayscale the image. you can adjust the “height” of the landscape with changing the brightness/contrast (dark is low, bright is high)

i hope i could be of any help :slight_smile:

ps: hey, this is my first post hehe.

I think he means a controllable one, where can say I want mountains, etc…

precisely. . . . I need to be able to control placement of mountains and height of moutains. I would prefer a software that is specifically engineered to make landmaps, if possible.

Hmm, I think terragen 2 has linux support planned, but that is in the future and it seems like you need this now. http://www.bottlenose.demon.co.uk/share/fracplanet/index.htm seems interesting, you should be able to cut it into sections to get what you need. This also looks interesting, not sure of the level of control: http://www.witchspace.com/landscape.html. Here is another: http://terraform.sourceforge.net/tf_screens.html. What you really need though is world machine, unfortunatley it’s windows only :frowning: http://www.world-machine.com/features.html
