The generator is handed the seed to be generated by the client, but the client has no UI to enter that (yet)

Thanks for your work! Can you please tell which generation method did you use? Is it cellular automata, fractals or Perlin noise?

Passed this on to you directly already Anihilnine but I'll drop it here again for visibility. Scalable map sizes and player numbers would be great, but I'm not sure how complex the generation is or if it's easy to add such things. At the moment though the 3v3's go pretty good, even if the generation seems a little biased against land heavy maps (there's usually been a lot of maps with a/some hover-only spawns).

@Anihilnine
Correct me if I am wrong but the three awesome contributors that built this generator are:
Geosearchef (Wanted to quit FAF now does TMM never the less, but I just guess he is not gonna do anything on generator)
Neroxis (Have not seen him around much for AT LEAST a year if not more, but who knows maybe he comes back if u kindly ask him)
Rackover (Left FAF as far as I know)

So Anihilnine it is wonderful that u care so much about the generator BUT u will probably need to find somebody that realizes your proposals. There are not getting listened to atm if I see it correctly. Also maybe summarize them in GitHub issues (One proposal = one issue) because they are otherwise gonna get lost in Zulip Chat history.

As I stated several months ago, the reclaim generation needs to be worked out a bit more before it's ready for "prime time."

I would also like to see improvements to the reclaim generator. Got to say though I am pretty impressed with how far the devs got. The maps are actually interesting to play and make for good games. We need some polish!

There is a new sherrif in town as new contributor Sheikah joins the map gen devs getting the next version of mapgen out including the highly anticipated support for 16 players, which should come soon. Neroxis recently explained some of his longer term goals ...

  • option for map size
  • option for water amount
  • option for mex amount
  • option for reclaim amount
  • support non square maps

What do YOU want to see in the next version of mapgen?
