PSA: Now may be a good time to revisit other possible world generations


Recommended Posts

After generating a couple of Worlds looking for a large "river" I realized maybe I'm going about this all wrong.

Ta-da:

Ripped this off the internet and this really spoke to me. The world is set to loop always and branch never. I could create multiple "harbors" and sail from biome to biome.

Given that my bases are going to be on the edge I can make each harbor a different pit stop of varying resources (food stuffs harbor like honey, wood harbor where bearger may be, petrified forest aka rock harbor). Having a mangrove in the middle or the lunar island would be icing on the cake.

Didn't want to keep it to myself so I thought I'd share just in case some one didn't think of it and wanted a new experience.

With a "river" large enough I'm thinking of making a sea base in the middle of two biomes... Wish me luck!

(Loop always and branch least has a chance to make the main "river" bigger or make it very ugly)

The more I think about it, the more amazing I think this could be.

Given the improvements to boats, I can carry everything I've ever wanted from one place to another using a boats near "infinite" carrying capacity.

Oh man I'm getting excited lmao

 Ok, but seriously, the inside seems to be far bigger than pre sailable waters. I think the world was trying to make space for stuff inside of it. 

I encountered a mangrove inside so they do spawn there! This will make it very easy to spread the seeds all over my world rather just a few places. I kinda crashed because I suck at steering so I'm just going to make a new world. 

Also my "canal" was too small to sail from the main "lake" to the ocean. 

I also noticed that as the biomes try to loop they create TONS of rivers between themselves.

this was always in the game, but I'm happy you found out about it.

Yes I know haha. What I mean is that now that boats have a decent speed and mangroves exist its a good time to revisit it. 

Usually the loop wasn't a good thing.

Edit: oops this didn't make much sense. I knew about turning the world like this way back in 2005 when I played on the wii U but It wasn't a good thing. There was no sailing in RoG worlds so you'd essentially gimp yourself with a hard to traverse world. I only thought to revisit it recently and was surprised that it could be useful now that boats got a speed update. 

I was looking through the possible world regens and was like, oh yeah! That exists!

No branches and no loop also makes some interesting looking maps. might be the only case where traveling from biome to biome might actually be faster by raft, after u clear ur main 'highway' of sea stacks

The lunar island spawned inside the "lake".

Such a nice thing too because I just had to delete a world with a reed trap thanks to the glommer statue not spawning. 

Im gonna go look for the statue now because if it didnt spawn... So help me god.
