Depot Games: Map and terrain generator
#3 during October 2006
Links: Web Site
Developers: Johan Halmén
This is a further development of a map generator I created for the pixelate competition last winter. I wanted to add a light source to get depth to the images. They turn out to be not only maps with more details but realistic images of terrain. First downloadable version was created with djgpp/gcc/RHIDE/Allegro, next version is created with mingw32/Dev-Cpp4/Allegro.

Trezker here :) I'm on a team! Cool ;D
*You can now exit 3D with Esc.
*You can flatten low and high parts in 3D.
This release just makes the 3D much more beautiful, having flat seas does alot.
Johan here: Note that you can navigate in the 3d view with keys Q, W, A, S, Z, D. If you see strange polygons, you are inside a mountain :)
Trezker did some magic to the project. The latest version, which solemnly be 1.0, you will find on his page:
Trezker's magic wand added:
Light source and ray tracing. Tileable maps (never-ending scrolling).
Overall Rating: 10.0
- It's still as great map generator as before. The 3D view works quite slowly for some reason, after all I've got quite high-end video card. Entering the 3D mode also made the program crash ocassionally...
- Great terrain generator. Requires the Windows Allegro DLL to work which can found in the files section of allegro.cc
Btw, don't I have a cute accent in my name? (View Profile
