Additionally, as minor considerations, I’d suggest the following might make for interesting options too:
- An ultra-mountainous option, or perhaps a “no rivers” option, as the current mountainous option still generates a lot of smooth flat lowlands that feel like they partially defeat the challenge.
- Perhaps an option for a “gradient” of terrain severity, so a map will be mountainous (/ultra-mountainous) on one side, and smoothly transition to flat/lowlands by the opposite map edge. This would allow for really interesting long-distance hill-climb routes to get from one side to the other. It could also be implemented as simply a straight continuous incline from one side to the other, added to the existing terrain types, so you could have an overall flat terrain, that still has a general gradual incline from one edge to the other. (Would combine wonderfully with a “coast” option as I mentioned above along the low-edge of the map)
