The design map

The design map is a high-level map used by the design/inflate algorithm to generate the heightfield. One pixel in the design map typically corresponds to a 64×64 tile of heightfield pixels. The parameters contained within the design map are:

  • Altitude
  • Peak roughness
  • Fractal roughness
  • Cliff / terracing strength
  • Erosion strength
  • Lakes parameter
  • Climate identifier
  • Special 'type' - mountains, volcanos, plateaus, etc
  • Special 'type' parameter

For more information about these parameters, please see the design map parameters and their effects page.
