Feature Requests / Spherical worlds
« on: July 08, 2010, 04:48:43 PM »
I've seen a number of people mention this, or features to give us this, so I wanted to make it a formal request  :D

Would love to be able to tile generated terrain around a sphere.

Yes, poles would be tough, but that's why we let Stephen write the software we use  :shock: :D

Another, similar feature would be to be able to map a given input device to a spherical terrain instead of rectangular - this would be necessary to take in DEM's for example, and get them to fit properly. This feature would work with the world feature to be able to break down the world into wedge shaped pieces but still export properly.

Mojo and I think Terragen do it ... so I think this is a much needed feature to stay competitive.

P.S.  Then of course, we need a Continental Drift erosion node  :)

General Discussion / File Input not Accurate
« on: September 07, 2006, 08:30:19 AM »
Folks:

  I have some BMP's that describe road and streams that I am combining with various filters.  With 1.25 they don't seem to 'read' accuratly.  This is due I think to the scaling and the X/Y shifting.

  All I need to do is what earlier versions did - 0,0 in the upper corner, 1024x1024 in the lower opposite corner (or whatever the dimensions of the bitmap are).  How do you do that with the new file input?  I've tried making the 'specific scale' on the File Input be exactly the same as the world scale, but I still get repeated tiles across or a totally blank file input.  This is very frustrating.

  Thanks,

             == John ==

General Discussion / Crash using any 8k world ?
« on: August 17, 2005, 08:38:30 PM »
I tried a simple perlin to output device 'machine' (2 nodes) and it still crashed.

I have 2G of RAM, and I've tried both memory options.

Anyone else having the same issue?

It's trying to access an invalid memory location.

Unhandled exception at 0x7c910a0a in World Machine.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0xfffffffd.

Here's the windows report:

General Discussion / Feature Request - partially complete recalculation
« on: February 27, 2005, 09:58:27 PM »
I would REALLY like a way to be able to take a very large (8k x 8k) height field and start the calculation, stop it, exit out, then restart where the calculation left off.

I realize this could be hard, but sometimes things take a LONG time to complete.  

So ... as a step toward this, a 'pause' button would be VERY nice.  Sometimes you need to answer an email and you don't want to spoil an hours long run ...

(this may have already been mentioned, if so I'm just adding another vote  :) )

Thanks,
