    Hey everyone!

    Last days I've been working on creating 'small floating islands' in Minecraft, and I messed around with some random world generation.

    This does not work too well though, so I decided to learn perlin noise for world generation.
    The problem is that I can't seem to find good tutorials anywhere, is there somebody that knows a few tutorials? Or even someone who is experienced with perlin noise?

    Thanks alot, Harm-Jan

    xTrollxDudex Thanks, but I have no idea on how to make this work inside of Minecraft world generation. That's the problem.

    Minecraft? Don't you mean bukkit? Bukkit has an interface for world generation ill check that out

    I want to create my own floating islands, (read the first post)

    That's why I need to know how perlin noise works. And also why I'm asking for a tutorial somewhere.

    Sorry but this is a bukkit specific forum please go to the minecraft forums or something. This doesn't happen to relate to plugin development or bukkit API does it?

    Are you kidding me?
    I'm making a plugin with perlin noise using Bukkit API, now go play somewhere else stupid troll.

    If you're not interested in answering this topic, just leave it, you don't have to post a reply anyway. But don't tell me to ask this somewhere else, if a moderator finds that this is too un-bukkit-related he will close the topic for us. Now leave.

    Actually you're the troll. You are telling me that you were messing around with minecraft, then the bukkit API, then tell me to look back at the main post, which said minecraft.

    All that aside, how about a quick look at probably the only plugin that uses perlin noise?

    MuisYa Here are some things you can look at:

    http://gamedev.stackexchange.com/qu...ating-land-masses-for-a-minecraft-like-engine

    http://freespace.virgin.net/hugo.elias/models/m_perlin.htm

    Saying "Last days I've been working on creating 'small floating islands' in Minecraft" doesn't necessarily mean he's messing with Minecraft's code. "In Minecraft" could just mean he's specifying the name of the game. Also, the definition of "in" in the context he used is "Expressing inclusion or involvement". And all Bukkit plugins involve Minecraft.

    But saying a Bukkit plugin is messing with Minecraft isn't exactly wrong either. The Bukkit API uses Craftbukkit which uses net.minecraft.server which is Minecraft. So Bukkit plugins technically mess around with Minecraft

    1. This isn't 4 chan. Image spam should be left in the Offtopic section.
    2. If you do not wish to help, do not post in this thread. The problem was clearly articulated - you've derailed the thread by your petty bickering.
    3. Further behavior like this will result in warnings or bans. We are a welcoming, helpful community - your attitude in this thread contradicts that.
