Over the last week or two, I've had this nagging feeling in my stomach. The feeling that many of the readers might have misunderstood what I am trying to do here.
I'm just going to spill it; For those of you who think I am making a new feature rich map editor, where you can specify each and every little thing... I'm sorry to disappoint you, but that's not it!
There's already a product out there that's good if you're looking for this kind of thing. I haven't tried it myself, but popular opinion seems to vouch for its quality. And that's Campaign Cartographer, which you can get at ProFantasy's web site.
So, back to my project. What am I trying to make? I'm trying to make a product for the lazy ones, for the ones who suddenly get the urge to play something in a new world setting and need the world now, and for those of us that aren't artists and want a good basis to found our game world on.
The first release of this product will be a web-based one-click creation process. A truth with minor modifications (you might have to check some checkboxes, and make some choices), but that's the jist of it.
You heard right. I want you to visit a web page. I want you to make some choices, and I want you to click a button. In return, I want to offer you a world setting.
