Powerful Fractal Generators
The theory of fractals provides nearly unlimited level of detail to your terrains. However, fractal terrains often lack diversity and are difficult to control. World Machine 2’s Advanced Perlin Noise allows you to create very unique terrain types and styles, ranging from realistic to incredibly stylized.
Graph Based Interface
The shape of your world depends upon the components used to create it. World Machine uses a network-based (graph) user interface; these have been growing in popularity for a number of years. By stringing together components, you can achieve endless combinations of effects.
Powerful Erosion Modelling
The natural world is not shaped merely by mathematics. Wind, water, and other chaotic processes are responsible for much of the appearance of our world. World Machine offers industry-leading erosion tools to help create natural appearing terrains.
Visual Design, Procedural Power
New to World Machine 2 is a layout view that allows you to use vector-based drawing tools to manipulate your terrain. Combine the power of infinitely detailed fractals with intutively drawn shapes to define your major terrain features.
- Create Shapes to use as a base for further terrain synthesis.
- Insert Roads and other shapes that can realistically carve and fill the surrounding terrain.
- Draw Masks to control or limit effects to particular geographical regions.
- Interchange vector shapes with illustration and 3D packages using industry-standard file formats (SVG, AI)
