Thank you a lot for the jam- as a generator maker & generator lover, I'd love to see it happen again in the future :D

Thank you so much for the kind comment!! I really appreciate it <3
I usually try to respond to comments faster, buuut my laptop died about two weeks ago, and then I had to buy and set up a new PC as well as other stuff (and I also procrastinated a bit afterwards... I admit!).
Apparently my motherboard and hard disk were broken, which meant that I lost some progress on this project and some of my other projects.) The capital-placing feature as well as others were gone! I was distraught and had a panic attack, honestly :/
But not all is bad as I'm planning to send my hard disk to a data recovery lab- it's going to be very expensive, but I'm gonna get the project data back, which means I could update it more in the future :D
Either way, your comment really cheered me up. I hope you make some sick maps with my world map generator, have a great day :D
Update: I recovered my data! (Also bought a new PC since the laptop broke)
I'm poor now :D but it was worth it!
Not completely sure I understand but I'll try to respond to the best of my ability!
I don't think I can insert an icon from game-icons.net or have something like that, but I think having some pre-made options for buildings or terrain elements could be fun, and users could put their own pixel-art stamps in a folder in the downloadable version perhaps. Not sure if adding a heraldry stamp / generator would work with other genres besides fantasy but... maybe someday? (:
I have been considering adding a "stamp" tool someday that'd let users stamp certain world elements on their map (kind of like in Inkarnate). Maybe users would be able to customize their stamps in the downloadable version too, so they won't be limited by the default options- but we'll see! :D
Would you be interested in a feature like that?
Thank you so much!! :D
Adding a replay would actually be possible, now that civilization placing is possible- but I'm not sure how many people would want this feature and my time working on this generator is limited, with it being a hobby project... so maybe someday!
In the meantime, you could record generating different civilizations and replay them, or mess with the "speed" setting while generating (:
Or, alternatively, you can support my hobby projects on my Patreon and force me to add a reply feature!!! (which I'll gladly do because I give special consideration for Patreon supporters). You can also just check out my other projects there (:
Thank you so much, I'm really glad you liked it :D
The first time it actually worked and I got to see the civilizations spreading and forming a proper map, I was pretty blown away too haha- it's definitely what inspired me to release it and continue working on it so far (: And hopefully the more settings I add, the more varied and interesting maps users can make too! If you want to see it evolve (or check out my other projects), please consider taking a look at my profile and maybe following me (; (:
Hey Caiuz! Nice to see you again :D
Hmm... I'm not sure how to add letters to the map and if it would work with the downloadable map textures... maybe someday, though!
If you mean the edited maps after the "Support" section, I add that stuff on my own with a pixel-art editor called Piskel (:
Please do! I'd love to see what you come up with :D
Credit is not mandatory but would be appreciated, and if the game earns the big bucks please consider supporting the project on my hobby-project Patreon, but for the most part I think this rocks, I think you rock and I hope the generator serves you well (:
Hmm... interesting idea!!
I think you mean "the number of villages is greater than cities which are greater than countries", right? (:
The next thing I wanted to add after finishing up the rivers is roads- but maybe after I do add roads I could try to add more cities and change their appearance too. Perhaps the size of the country or prevalence of a city would affect its size?
The idea with the current system is that black points are "capitals" or central hubs, while grey points can be villages or important spots- but I definitely don't mind expanding on that with future settings and additions, like you suggestion above (: I'll have to make sure it doesn't make the map look way too crowded though, haha
If you want to be notified when I update this project you can follow me on Itch, regularly check / back me on the Patreon, or alternatively I could just let you know with a reply to your comment if and when this feature is added (Though I'd love to try to add it as soon as I'm done with rivers, roads and routes!)
Cheers and thanks for the suggestion!!
Thank you so much for the kind comment!
What do you mean with "a hierarchy of cities -> villages > countries"? (:
I'd love to give users the ability to change the minimum and maximum places of note (gray) in the future, though- and for now you can also edit maps to suite you better after downloading them, with paint or my new personal favorite pixel art software, Piskel! (or any other pixel editing software for that matter!)
Just wait- I'm planning to sprinkle in some new features by next Monday (hopefully) + a whole new relic generator!! :D
Also thanks, I'm really happy you liked it! Your comment made my day (:
Hey, I'm really happy you enjoyed the generator!! (:
I'm... honestly not sure exactly sure how to add that right now, but other people have asked for it so I might add it someday in the future- I won't add it just yet but I am planning to update the generator every now and then, so if you follow me on Itch.io you might get notified if and when I do- alternatively, you can just check the generator again in a few month to a year lol
In the meantime, I think the closest thing to that would downloading a map with "Size Up 1" (Meaning 250x250 pixels) and editing it in paint or whichever program you wish (;
I might take a few weeks before I add it properly, but in the meantime you can use the downloadable version to download maps at 250x250 pixels and edit them in paint or your favorite graphics editor.
I might expand it a bit further, but I don't want to add a war system;
After all, the fun of worldbuilding comes from the world-builder deciding which nation is in war, or not (:
Also, just because a nation is surrounded doesn't mean it's in war! For example, the Vatican in Italy.
Half a year later, I finally added these two features! so thank you (again) for your feedback.
It too me 4 months or so to finish adding equipment and another month to add a whole lot of stuff from the Gameplay Switch 2 update- might post a dev log about it tomorrow.
-planning on adding some new content next :D
Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback!
I'm so passionately for having numbered abilities! It was on the back of my mind for ages, but for some reason I never added them... maybe I got a little bit bogged down with other updates :'<
(Current roadmap for context: https://imgur.com/a/eu7s3Zm)
After your comment, though, I'm definitely planning to add numbered abilities on the Gameplay Switch 2 update (currently working on Equippable Items). Comfort of life feedback like right clicking to cancel the currently selected attack is great too!! I wrote both of these down in my Todo list (with credit to you) and frankly I can't wait to add them :D
Thank you so much Anthony, that comment made my day! (:
In the near future the biggest challenge to graphical consistency is going to be the UI, but I'm looking forward to tackling this challenge with new areas/locations/levels further down the line :D (And to creating new levels in general!!)
