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
Wiimote 2 Button Invert land height

* By default, these buttons have no effect because brush size is based on distance from the screen. You can enable manual mode in the Menu.

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
