Low Poly HexMap Generator
Project Code: Available soon
This was a side project I undertook to better understand cubic coordinates and random map generation.
A lot of the maths and ideas came from this article, although I've not yet implemented a lot of the ideas presented there.
I worked on it for around 2-3 days to get it to where it is at now. A lot of that time was spent tweaking various parameters to get it looking how I wanted (although the art was a bit of a rush job).
There are a million-and-one customisation options available in the code for generating these maps, but I've deliberately left these out of the demo UI to keep things simple.
If you would like some (or all) of these options to be added to the demo then I'd be happy to upload a new version. Just let me know!
In this demo you can randomly generate a new map, move around the world and zoom in/out.
This one is definitely a keeper and I look forward to adding more to this project when I find the time.
