Ok as promised 'Variation Maps', before I begin I am no programmer I just read and try things
I have created a little app that will generate a variation map automagically
it is very simple to use once you generate the map click on it and it will save in the app folder under\maps (please be aware it will overwrite any map that is already there so once you generate move it to a safe location.
I have created a little video to show the basics
(the app must be installed on C:\ the structure is C:\VG\Maps)
this is beta I suppose and I must admit I have not tried the resulting PNG I was hoping you guys would try it out for me.
UPDATE - No need to create folders anymore just extract it to any folder and run it
This is very basic but can be built upon
let me know what you think
I forgot to mention the map generator is Dynamic, if you resize the app the resulting map is bigger, for instance if you maximise the app window before you generate a map and your screen resolution is 1920x1080 the resulting texture will be 1017x1017 with a file size of 984kb
