Worldsynth 0.11.0 released

Rivers

Worldsynth version 0.11.0 is released and can be found on github.

In this release we’ve added an additional algorithm for heightmap generation based on Ken Perlin‘s work in noise generation. We decoupled the sea-level to be configurable based on percentage, which in addition to masks we can now create islands. You can also save your world and open it up later since we use pytables to store our settings, metadata and our data in an open hdf5 format. You can also export your heightmap in 16-bit PNG greyscale or even import from a wide array of images formats as a heightmap. Importing from an image creates a 16-bit precision greyscale heightmap. In addition to this, one commenter ask about Python3 support, well now you have it.

The immediate future of Worldsynth has the following: fluvial erosion, better river erosion, better river flow/snaking and editing properties of world.

Here are some screenshots of some of the latest features:
