I know this has nothing really to do with electronics, or anything like that, but I thought I'd just share it with you anyway.

I've been tinkering with using plasma fractals to generate landscapes. I'm thinking I might make a bit of a web game out of it somehow, but I'm not sure quite what to have the game do.

Anyway, I have a couple of little C programs that I have knocked together to render landscapes from a simple seed number. They come out quite nicely, actually:




What we have here are 3 plasma fractals per map - one for the land height (which also determines the land type), one for the tree coverage, and one for the cloud layer.

It takes longer to draw it than it does to calculate the fractals

Anyway, it's a bit of fun, and it makes a change from programming microcontrollers.

Oh, and why not some islands with a touch of mist coming in off the sea?
