Re: Render Forest Script for GIMP

I though I tried that, but apparently not because it just worked perfectly. I must have had the second word in lowercase or something. For future users, including those who may come across the plug-in but not the instructions, would it be helpful maybe to put the instructions right in the GUI window for the script? Maybe even include a link to the instructions page (if you're not worried about a dead link years down the road).

One other thing I found with both this and the "Render Map" script is the results (based on my original layers) didn't seem organic enough. The edges of the layers were all to clean.

So with the forest script, before running it, I did some playing around with the edges of my black areas. I selected the black areas, then did Select--Distort, and played with those numbers to get a much more random looking selection. Then I filled that selection with black, inverted the selection, and erased everything else. That gave the script a far more natural base to start with. It didn't completely fix it, at this point I'm thinking that much more distortion will help it greatly.

I'm wondering if this would help with the shorelines and mountain edges on "Render Map" as well...?

Not really something the script can be faulted for, but if it could be worked into the script somehow to make up for the lack of skill on the user's part then it might make this script even more enticing to use. You'd probably want to play with all that a bit though, as I could be missing something big...

I'm loving these two scripts, and look forward to perfecting my use of them!! Thanks again Tim!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's good you can distort black areas before running script so it fits your taste.
I find the script okay at doing what we want for our future video game so i'll leave it as is.

Yes possibly a future video game. Maybe years from now after my friend and I take the Udemy Game Development and Design course.
That's how i found the tutorial and decided to script it, because I was researching on how to do maps for the game.
