3D Biome Map - The Legendary Universe - Pic
« on: August 10, 2013, 10:34:09 am »

The Legendary Universe is an advanced world I'm very excited about. After discussions with PeridexisErrant and others on Reddit, I was struck by a fey mood and produced this..

Can you possibly upload the worldgen specs? That way we can use them to generate a world and build our fortresses in it.

How about a save file of the world?  (It's really a damn shame that we haven't been able to upload stuff like this to a vrml program so we can walk around these landscapes in FPS mode, isn't it?)

That's the badasseast artifact ever made by human dwarven hands

I believe the "download save file" should be preferred, as using the same params doesn't always ensure the resulting world is going to be 100% the same on every machine (or so I have read)

Clearly, our top dwarven scientists are hard at work creating a new breed of SUPER WAGON that can survive being scuttled by enemy wagonmancers! These new super wagon troopers will be able to carry TWICE the cargo, be 1/3 the size, and NEVER scuttle!

I believe the variations are in the distribution of the good and evil zones, and perhaps the savagery. A save file would be preferred, but the reason to have the actual parameters is people can use them to generate a world with a similar heightmap but add in their own mods.

That would not be too difficult. My plan is to detail the more interesting legends, establish lore, and possibly start a succession Adventure Mode & Fortress Mode.

I like how you mapped it to a globe - very fun.  Out of curiosity, what diameter is that projection?

I will draw that demon if you give me a description of both it and Kege.
