Thought I would add this as a tool, it's a tool for visualising 3D terrains (based on input heightmap) which can output a useful selection of images.....



normal map (x,y and z of terrain normal encoded as rgb)


shade map (lighting adjustable)


full lighting+colour 2d output


use of custom gradient

feature requests anyone??

Well I currently got no use for such a software as I dont plan on creating 3D games ^^
but I really like the idea of working with pictures only for everything.
is it possible to measure distances between points on the map? like both air-distance and direct walking path following the surface? :)

if you cant get a jframe set up, draw stuff to it, and receive input, i can only imagine how horrible your game code is _._   ~ c4ooo (14.11.2016 22:44:07)

no and
direct walking path following the surface would be dubious as it depends on how you draw the quads - |/| or |\|

Neat. Does this generate terrains too or just convert hight maps?
Legends say if you spam more than DJ Omnimaga, you will become a walrus...


kotu

it doesn't generate terrains.... it just accepts a height map as its input

I think what koto is trying to say is that the program uses these pictures (heightmap and coloring) as input to create a 3D model of the map.
I dont think there's a need to export it as the pictures themselves work as the savefile.
But I agree, an output, for example as a blender file, would be really cool as well :thumbsup:

i could probably do that

that would really rock kotu!!
Just do some graphics work and BOOM you got your 3D landscape!  :thumbsup:

Have just upgraded this program to a version 2, have added some new stuff including quick zoom out on right click, ability to turn sun on/off (thus leaving just ambient light) and height quantization. The height quantization allows for stuff such as the following....... (could be useful for 3D plaformers or something)





Won't be adding the blender export for a while as I am working on something else now

The new File isn't uploaded yet btw, will edit this post when I do that. Cheers!
*EDIT*
file has now been uploaded thanks

Something cool is if this could convert small maps into gLib and HP PPL format. Nice tool, by the way :3=

well i wasn't planning on adding exports for LOADS of file formats, you have mentioned 2 which i think are for calcs, and p2 has mentioned blender

i guess one PC format and one calc format would be reasonable

it's just knowing/choosing the right ones lol

thoughts people??

My HP PPL suggestion was because that on-calc language has a Triangle() command that takes a list of polygons and it lets you generate 3D graphics. The downside, though, is that there aren't any textures.

well this tool doesn't feature textures anyway

this answers one of the things i was thinking about anyway - how the map should be output as a 3D model. i was thinking (for a blender export) to add no colour/lighting, but now i realise there should definitely be two modes for output - one without any lighting, and one with. nice one dj

if you get that done and keep working on it, this tool could actually become the missing software to turn blender files into various calc-related formats, which would definitely be aesome  O.O
(most calcs and on-calc tools do NOT support blender files, gLib is pretty much of an exception there)

if i was going to do that it would be a separate tool, however, that is probably something i would not be interested in doing *lazy*  (-_(//));
