There is something addictive about generating 3D terrain for the first time using a procedural generator. Once you start, it's pretty hard to stop the creativity flowing. To make the addiction harder to stop, World Machine has been flaunting their amazing technology on unsuspecting digital artists for over 10 years.

World Machine helps you create realistic 3D terrain. Powerful and flexible, World Machine combines procedural terrain creation, simulations of nature, and interactive editing to produce realistic looking terrain quickly and easily. You can build and export high resolution heightfields, textures, and meshes for your game or rendering software.

I wanted to dig a little deeper into some recent entries for Rookie Awards 2020 to see if anyone was using this tool. I was not only pleasantly surprised, but also incredibly impressed with the projects I discovered. Take a look at these incredible projects and go have a play yourself.

This post is in no way sponsored... we simply love 3D terrain generators.

'Years ago a blood magic ritual ended in destruction. The foul magic conjured in that moment remains here to this day, somehow holding the structure in those last moments of its life and diving away those curious enough to enter.'
