A quick example of terrain generation in text mode (using Perlin Noise plugin by Arsonide - this plugin is required to view the included project)
A couple notes:
- Construct's Text object doesn't really support a wide range of characters, thus hampering creativity in regard of ASCII art/games
- Text object can only show one color; for text of varying colors, different Text objects would have to be used
Perhaps it is time for an advanced text object that would allow in-line text formatting?
In any case, Perlin Noise is a great addition, inspiring creativity! Kudos go to Arsonide. I wonder what more potential Construct can offer through creative contributors!
