Creating an empty map?

Postby Slackie » Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:39 am

Hey all. Wondering if it's possible to create an entirely empty map? I want to create a custom map with pre-defined resource locations, removing everything else on the map. To be clear I want to start with the entire world being empty, no trees, resources, water, etc.

I've so far accomplished this in the map editor by creating massive water areas (so that everything where the water is placed will be deleted) and then filling in the water with land to create an empty square of land, but this seems sub-optimal.

Anyone done this before?

Here was custom map generation.

Thanks for the link, that looks similar to what I am trying to do.

I found some modified code in that thread on the last page which illustrates how to make the chunk generator generate only water chunks, but when I follow the instructions for making it generate only land chunks, it generates land with resources on it!

So, somehow I need to either figure out how to generate land and then wipe it as part of chunk generation, or I need to do a second pass after generating water and convert it to land.

Anyone have an idea how I could modify the water maze mod to do that?
