I'm experimenting with loop-able worlds that have a height-map for terrain data. While I can easily create loop-able .BMP textures for this in Photoshop and just load the terrain from them, but that limits the size and variance of the worlds to whatever I pre-generate for the player.

I would like to proceduralize the process. I have got a simplex terrain and a perlin terrain generator and I'd like to wrap them so that the world loops back around to the same place if you travel in a straight line in any direction North East South West

What would be the best techniques to use to wrap the noise to a tillable terrain.

This question Different as it is for both perlin AND simplex. It is also different as I forgot to mention I am using 3D noise for some of my work.

  • \$\begingroup\$ What query do you have remaining that isn't answered by the duplicate? \$\endgroup\$ – MichaelHouse Jan 23 '14 at 0:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ How I would apply this to simplex noise and how I would apply this to a 3D function? Also the best example given is in Python which is somewhat confusing for me. I have an idea how to apply this to 3D Perlin but not Simplex which is constructed rather differently. \$\endgroup\$ – That Homeless Guy Jan 23 '14 at 1:13
  • \$\begingroup\$ I suggest you give the concepts presented in the other answers a try and see if it works for your situation. If you still have a question after that, be a bit more specific about what you're having difficulty with here. \$\endgroup\$ – MichaelHouse Jan 23 '14 at 1:35
