What's your record for number of events generated in WorldGen?
« on: October 12, 2021, 11:32:58 am »

Right now I've got a large world going at year 682 with 21.7 million events. Unlimited population, unlimited sites. Found that the equilibrium number of alive historical figures is around 430k. About 12 GB of RAM so far. Figure if I double the dimensions of the world, quadrupling the area, may have equilibrium population of around 1 million which would be cool. I don't really care if the generation time grinds to a halt and takes 6 months to complete, I just think it's neat.

Edit: Sorry if image is so massive, not sure how to change.

Edit2: thanks for suggesting I use spoiler tags

Image is fine, you made it that big on your own screen before you uploaded it, but if you want to hide it so people only need to see it when they open it, you can use the "spoiler" button the line of text, and that will make it disappear when not in use.

That is...honestly probably more events than all of the worlds I've ever generated. Insane legends dive after that, I bet!

You can also add width or height modifiers to image tags. (img width=500)....(/img) The number there is pixels. Clicking it will enlarge it, too. Nifty function.

Good lord look at how many settlements exist in the valley plains. It's a megacity

Holy hell... What happened here? Why are there so many settlements on that grassland?

I know it's meant to be funny, but the racism in this forum always puts me on edge.

WHERE?

The mountain ranges which are 100% mountainhomes are also a good sight but my gods, something about Elven settlement range + longevity makes for some beautiful metreepolises

In most of my worlds elves have died out early for whatever reason so I'm looking forward to seeing the results of having a megacity filled with cannibals that don't die of old age.

And I guess the idea behind the world is that the number of interesting interactions probably scales like the number of historical figures squared, so having lots of them will be interesting. Also I like the idea of not just a few people bent on world domination, but thousands all competing for one spot.

Also hoping for some kind of escaped experiment to become a major civilized race.

There's a line between memetics of a game community and exercising bigotry. It's a thin line, I reckon, but yeah, I get what you mean.
