Hero Extant: World Generator

This world generator uses fractal terrains and various simulations to generate highly detailed random map data. It is open-source and licensed under the GNU General Public License v3, with some sections also available under the MIT license (at your option).

There's a video and more screenshots.

This is a prototype; stay tuned for updates!

Update: Now public domain on GitHub

The world generator backend has been ported to Java by avh4 - thank you!
