Map Maker is a demo application that generates cool-looking terrain you can edit on-the-fly with the Wiimote.

Controls

Wiimote.svg Action
Wiimote A Button Generate new map
Wiimote B Button Hold and drag to pan
Wiimote D-Pad Up / Wiimote D-Pad Down Adjust terrain height
Wiimote HOME Button Show Menu and options
Wiimote + Button / Wiimote - Button Adjust brush size *
Wiimote 1 Button Re-center map

Acknowledgments

These people did all the hard work:

  • Thanks to para for the Wiiuse library
  • Thanks to Paul Martz, who wrote a very helpful article about the diamond-square algorithm
  • Thanks to Max Russell, who is much better at math than I
  • Thanks to Team Twiizers for their contributions to the homebrew community -- without you guys I'd never have even tried
  • Thanks to TheBlasphemer, whose nifty RGB to YUY2 routine I blatantly lifted from the WiiRayTracer demo
  • Thanks to WinterMute for the extremely enlightening How to use the Wiimote tutorial
  • And thanks to River for being my alpha tester <3
