2022-12-26 Live Stream - Deep dive into world fractals

Since I’m on vacation, I thought I’d do a deep dive into a requested topic “world fractals”. I’m going to use some fractal generation tools, maybe some hand-drawn diagrams, and some live demos to show how a game can use layered fractals to build a world.

9PM GMT-5. Join live if you want to ask questions while it’s happening.


Chapter markers have been added. I’ve thought of a better way to visualize how fractals work that I may use in some future video. In the mean time, if you think of an area that deserves more detail then let me know.

Here is a preview of the chapter markers:
