Hello all. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Hopefully its something you would either want to use or try your hand at making. I searched the forum and found nothing similar to this, but that might be due to my own skills and not a lack of existance.
Anyway, I basically wish to request a specific map generator. To explain it, there is the requirement of a bit of history.
I fell in love with an animated series called stormhawks in 2007 when it first aired in my region. Everything about the world was intriguing, the art style, the characters, the technology... the geography...
Anyway, I was wondering if its possible to make a map generator which would create a world like the Atmos. Individual, resource rich, mountains of varying sizes seperated by distances of "wasteland"; the adminium layer of the map covered in lava, perhaps with a few small dots of land a layer or two above the lava ocean with precious resources on them.
I figured "two great tastes..." and wanted to see how they tasted together. I would try to create the generator myself, but have no coding background. I figured with the love for floating islands around here, it would be worth at least trying.
If what you're asking for is a mod that affects Minecraft's worldgen to be like the Atmos, this is a staggering task, and although feasible, is incredibly difficult. There are very few worldgen mods out there and for good reason. Minecraft's worldgen code is very complex and not for the faint of heart.
If you are asking for an external tool to randomly generate a world like the Atmos, this is even more difficult, and would be better done as a mod.
If you are asking for an external tool that generates the Atmos as a map with specific details from the show, you're out of luck. Programming doesn't really work that way. You should look to a worldgen mod or look to creating a map yourself. Mapmaking is more of an artistic challenge than a programmatic one. I suggest using mapmaking tools such as MCEdit and WorldEdit/Single Player Commands, in addition to good old creative mode for the fine details.
