Hello everybody, I’m currently porting my nearly infinite procedural terrain prototype to Panda3D. In the previous langage I used, I coded my own simple and unoptimized perlin noise algorithm. I was quite happy to see Panda3D has one already.
In my engine, I generated my terrain in different patches of 8*8 vertices. I passed the x ,z coordinates of the vertices to the algorithm and it returned the elevation (y) of that vertex. So for the adjacent patches, passing the coordinates would make it contiguous to the other patches.
I’m a newbie to Panda3D and as I understand the perlin noise implementation, I can only generate a x,y array of noise (used as a heightmap). How would I, for example, generate two contiguous heightmaps? I can’t generate those two heightmaps in one go, I need to generate them one by one.
Hope someone understands what i’m saying. I find it hard to explain these things.
Thank you for any help
