  • How do you create maps that have the huge areas? I'm looking to make something like a 20x20 of the largest tile in the region possible. I've seen a few maps that had ridiculously huge areas (like 50x50 of the largest).

    Well, you could use the Landscape Designer to generate maps up to 4097 x 4097 (region would be 4096 x 4096). This tool terraforms thw whole region, but randomly.

    Use Landscape designer to generate the biggest map possible, save the greyscale image. Open the greyscale with photoshop or MS paint then alter it anyway you like, save the altered image. Reopen Landscape designer - import the altered image and tweak it if necessary, then save it back in the correctly named folder placed in the correct place by Landscape Designer - simple and easy to do. Landscape designer does it all for you. If you want to do it manually read any one of the elaborate tutorials, and have a giant pot of coffee next to you 44.gif
