These 8 screenshots are of the amgmt mapgen. It looks like you look up to paramat, considering the fissures that I saw.

The screenshots were taken in cg72's fork of Minetest (MineTime.) It can be found on GitHub.

Have you considered adding support for the following mods to your amgmt mapgen?
moreores
technic
darkage
moretrees
plantlife
They won't generate anything in the worlds created by the mapgen if they are not supported. By the way, have you ever used those mods?

Yes, many kind of code I use for this mod. Thanks paramat!

I don't know about that. But, thanks to tell me.

That's a complete Lua mapgen - biomes are almost a must-have.

Why do you generate bedrock two times?
Also, I found some parts in the codes which have potential to become better:

It contains some very interesting terraforming functions, I like it.

Really? I just try to create a lua mapgen like Experimental mapgen[mg]

Agreed.

Krock wrote:Why do you generate bedrock two times?

Compability for nether mod.
EDIT: It never get compatible.

Nothing. See last update.

Little changes - but they make the codes better readable

Thanks, for suggestion!

Thanks! I will add some space near river that cut through terrain.

Three bad things I found:
- Map generation takes too long (actually, no wonder with 16 perlin noises)
- Console/log gets spammed
- The group "leafdecay" removes the leaves of all trees in the subgame "base_game". This would solve it:
Code: Select all
      description = tree_add[i][2].." Leaves",
+      trunk = "amgmt:"..tree_add[i][1].."_tree",
      drawtype = "allfaces_optional",


But else - the terrain looks nice.

What's that?

What should I remove?
2 noise for height
1 noise for fissure
2 noise for temperature and humidity
1 noise for experimental water lake
5 noise for caves
5 noise for cave deepness

I think, you will remove 8 noise for caves and it's deepness.

Krock wrote:- Console/log gets spammed

Set DEBUG param to false. I shall change the default to false.

Will be changed in next update. Thanks!

Thanks! I'm experimenting with plateau.

Experimental water lakes! (I should update this. Maybe i'll used paramat's highlandpools' code)

Highlandpools is very slow, and designed to add to core mapgens. With a lua mapgen it's much faster to use a different method.

I'm thinking ... instead of searching for a natural depression in the terrain, create one with 2D noise, then fill with water but only up to a level that doesn't overflow, should be fast. I need to dot this in 'fracture' mod so we can have water pools in floatlands.

This mod has 2d noise for lake already.

Nice. (Generation time: 2600ms)

And the fake (reproduced within 10 minutes) canyon in my mapgen: (Generation time: 800ms)

Does your mapgen support minetest.register_ore() or is a special function needed?

So what biomes are there? Is there a snow and ice biome?
I love the idea of canyons.

I love this mod. More of this sort of thing. Although the small lakes appear on the land, underwater and floating in the sky.
