[Con't from title] Process

https://youtu.be/RBpzz7VVivU

Hey guys! Title says it all. Actually, the video says it all. It's a hexagonal map generator that completely automates the mapmaking process. Unfortunately, that means none of the fun is left for us mapmakers.

From Video Description:
I am not sure if I want to release this to the public yet, but maybe this can even be implemented into the game itself! Let me know your thoughts, comments, or questions.

Random Games: As I said in the video, perhaps there could be a new form of gameplay where neither player joining the game sees the map because it doesn't exist yet; it creates when the game starts.

Let me know what you think!
Happy holidays!

Love it, games with random maps sounds like a very interesting option if this is feasible to implement.

If you automate the template making as well this could be really useful ;) at the moment we got already quite a lot maps, also maps which are pretty good but still have no good tested template for it. That's where the community should work at mostly.

Wow, great work!

What about a generator "reading" certain maps (png images) by finding the borders and copying them to an svg?
You could create Real World Maps like within a minute this way...

Also, the "Random Map" option would be a great idea; maybe even in 2 different variations:
One creating the map within the template already, so the Template creator can e.g. use a Custom Scenario on it,
and one creating the map in the moment the game starts.

Definitely a cool idea, carry on with it 8)
