Countryside Generation

Not sure what you're looking at here? This is the countryside heightmap generation of Malevolence: The Sword of Ahkranox, in it's early stages. Basically, this is the engine generating the infinite countryside that the player will be able to explore.
In it's simplest form, when a heightmap is applied to a flat plane, the brighter areas turn into hills, and the darker areas turn into valleys. So what you're seeing is the creation of mountains! The finished version will also be generating rivers and oceans, but we thought we'd show off a bit of what it's doing so far. Just a few more levels that the computer is creating without the help of a level designer!
