Designable map - land possition

Postby messy » Fri Sep 14, 2018 1:06 pm

Is there a way when using the designable map to specify a minimum number of grids around the edge that MUST be water?

I have been generating maps crossing my fingers that the land mass will be more or less in the middle and tried to cut off the bits that touch the edge with the editor tool but that creates ugly and unnatural results - It would be so much better if the entire landmass was generated as an island to begin with.

this is driving me mad, even if i put the water ratio up loads and only get small landmass they still always press up against the edge.

Is there no way to prevent this?

You could use real world data and select an island, then polish the island to suit your needs, in 2 minutes you can do something like this
