Hey Cephalo, I dunno if you are still around or maintaining this tool--

But i have an old map from 34.11 that reliably crashes perfect world.  The worldgen file crashes the poor thing instantly.

Spoiler: The worldgen file data (click to show/hide)

It reliably gives this output:

Spoiler: crash info on console (click to show/hide)

The world file *IS* valid, and causes the crash.  Yes, I am using the 34.11 worldgen.xml file.

Are you using the WorldGen.xml file for 34.11?

It will never be possible.

Do you know of a Fanasty World Generator where, after establishing a height map and placing key sites, generation of roads and additional minor sites is possible?

Thanks,
Andy

No.

And I doubt it would be possible in a map creation tool.

A DF world is not just a map, it is a world full of virtual creatures who have lived a simulated history. If the goblins have a fort at the place this river meets the bay that means a group of goblins either founded the fort, or stole it from someone else. Without a full world-building tool where you could name the goblins, type in their history, and place the fort exactly at that spot, there's no way to guarantee that.

In theory someone with real programming chops could probably create a tool that allows you to do that, but to my knowledge that has not happened yet.

This doesn't actually need updating to new versions.

The only time this needs updating is when the world_gen.txt file changes, and then it can be done with xml.

Something terrible happened at work. Someone got fired for playing a lot of games, and now there's this draconian, all encompassing web filter that covers anything that has to do with games. I can't even discuss games with people except at home. If I was into knitting, or horseback riding, or origami, I could surf the web all day, but games are contraband. Interesting.

Hello. My worldgen.world is stuck at rivers. Where normally it will count down the rivers then the lakes and then display the little map with rivers finally entered, it will just say "rivers" and show rivers appeaeing on the map and not complete the generations next steps.

http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=13939

Here it is. The map file that will not work with any worldgen parameters I was setting. Other maps worked fine, but I didn't try to alter them too much. I spent the usual time I do with this map just setting drainage noise and temperature and savagery. I didn't brush anything to the map.

Jus tried again a new map, moving noise maps around, the usual. No brushing. The world gets stuck at "rivers..." No count downs, no lakes countdown, though the map shows lakes first and then rivers. I've ran a successful generation of only producing noise maps without moving them around.

I'll try to check it out when I have time. What version of DF is this? I'm banned at work from visiting bay12, so keeping tabs is difficult.

Excuse me for the long delay. The version is 44.12. I have attempted several maps, and it appears if I invest any effort in moving the noise maps around, the generator will cease functioning at the rivers.

I will not be able to upload the worldgen that was linked to that map because I deleted it before thinking to make this known.

Hey, my bad, I seem to be making a fuss over nothing. Unlike default DF generation, there is no countdown to rivers, lakes, or any other aspect to generation. Though, I gave it a few minutes and it kicked up again at placing caves, witch it did countdown for, and the rest of the generation went along normally. I'll be playing this "Perfect" world(I do really enjoy how it came out) extensively to see if there are any awesome glitches in the terrain. Thank you for your work!

One question Cephalo! Is there anyway to change the revolution of the world? Eastern or Western sun rise?

Is there a database of 'interesting' Perfect World-generated mapsets somewhere?

Not sure how I didn't notice this post for tenty days in my 'replies' tab, but DFFD will probably have any. Look up 'pre-generated maps' or 'perfect-world' in the search bar, or something similar.

Here's a start: http://dffd.bay12games.com/search.php?string=perfect&id=14

There's [MAPS] ✫ Cartographer's Lounge ✫ (custom worldgen map repository). I recall there was a thread with variety of earth maps as well somewhere...Shagomir gives some advice on heightmaps here, the OP of which has a map of Central+Western Europe.
