I would like to Simulate Male’, a tropical island with the size of 2,5 sq km and about 130.000 people on it in the Cataclysm DDA engine.
It would support 7-10 z-level buildings and boats now, wouldnt it?
Is is possible to work with mapgen.cpp to create a city map surrounded by water first, then add other islands later, that can be travelled to by boat?
For those who have never heard of the place, here is the Link to its wikipedia Article.
Any further questions or needed resources to draw a design outline for this mod (I have only recently started reading the code for mapgen and its noise functions, so pointers would be appreciated) I would gladly help to answer.
I can post some pictures of the main places too, if thats ok, so there is more to a feel to the scenario I’m describing.
It also shall be kept in mind that this place does by now means have to be as tropical and idyllic as it is right now.
I always imagine a scenario like ‘The Road’ from Cormac McCarthy for Cataclysm DDA.
So would a mod like this be feasible, and where should I start working on in regards to the source to make it a reality?
Thanks and Regards
