No, the only difference is that "bug".

Is that the only case of this happening? Very strange. Are you using a different font somehow?

Can one place rivers with this utility? I find it infuriating trying to search for a good major river site. This could really help.

No access to rivers just yet. However, if you made a world with lot and lots of land the watersheds should end up with some major rivers somewhere. I've seen quite a few in the time I've been playing with this utility.

I've found an error. You have [ORTHOGRAPHIC_***] saved which should be [OROGRAPHIC_***]

Hahaha, good find. I struggled mightily with the spelling of that word. Thanks Deon. Fortunately I don't think it affects much when you use a pre-set rain map.

Turns out that bug is just my gfx card fooling around.

Again, I have to say, awesome tool.
I have the perfect world :D

Why is it the temp maps are impossible to control? In the draw-a-map function in DF we can control tempearture too...  ???

Also, tadpoles.

I just wanted to say HURRAY because I was able to generate the map for Wasteland mod.



As you see, it has a desert world AND a swamp. It's something which is impossible to achieve unless you draw it by hand, and in-game mechanism is too clunky :). This tool is really great.

Now I will have to make USA and Europe maps.

That circle of swampyness on the lower left looks beautiful. Was it an ocean you told the genarator to chomp off?

An analogue tool for removing landmasses smaller than X size would be welcome considering how procedural noise often spawns tiny islands, and we all know in DF islands are pretty much pointless.

No, I drew everything by hand. I just drew 3 mountain ranges, then made area between them to have low rain and max drainage which formed deserts, then I've added some rain and lowered drainage along coasts to add patches of grassland and forests, then I took a huge brush and put max rain and min drainage in that part where there's swamp. I needed it because my next update features swamp creatures :P.

I think of that place like of a place where "G.E.C.K. has gone wrong", so the irrigation/greening project went out of hand and the terraforming modules turned the area into swamps which were quickly populated by angry mutants :).

The temperature map tends to get pretty much overwritten by the gradient that causes a north or south pole. If I could control the pole or not use a pole I could do alot of fun stuff with temperature. I didn't want to spend a big chunk of time on something that would be entirely unpredictiable anyways. If I ever get a way to turn off the temperature gradient I will add a tab for temperature.
