A Slice of Infinity

Posted on: June 19th, 2013 by jongallant Add Comment

A new world generator is currently being worked on. This new generator is based on Accidental Noise and it is an incredible upgrade from my old simple perlin noise generator.

After combining multiple noise patterns together, I manage to get a map of data. This data is infinite in all directions. Below is a visual representation of a portion of this data:

Each pixel represents a block inside of the game. This data is what is used to render the infinite world of Infinidrill!

A lot has been happening since the last post. A very talented artist came on board, and started skinning the game and providing amazing feedback.
Below is a concept drill made by Chris Dozier.

Infinidrill features a interesting water physics engine. It uses a form of cellular automation in an attempt to simulate liquids.

What happens if I fly up, instead of drill down? If you have enough fuel, you might just make it into space!
