    Hello everyone :)

    I'm here with a new tool I made for KAG mappers.
    It converts heightmaps to .png images that can be used for further map development.
    Some of you remember I made something similar some time ago, but it was buggy and had a bad GUI, so I'm releasing a better version that is entirely re-coded. :thumbs_up:

    Updated to v1.2
    Added option to generate trees! :)
    Example map:

    The new GUI and a test with a big (640 width) map.

    -The program :gear:
    -Five example heightmaps :gold:
    -A help file ???
    -The source! (Game Maker .gmk file) :heart:

    If you see any bugs and/or have suggestions, feel free to post them here! ;)

    Hey it sounds nice :)
    It would be nice also if you was recoding to help me for APA, because I am too lazy to do it alone :>
    Also, it would be nice if you give me the code then I can include it in APA :p
    Edit : Oh, wait, there is the Gmk here :>

    It detects the brightness of each pixels on a horizontal line. Then, for example, brightess 5% will be 5% of map.. Etc.

    New version (1.2) released!
    Added an option to generate trees! :D
    When you turn the option on you can choose the max. and min. height of the trees and the chance of tree spawning. (0% to 100%)
    I also added another heightmap.

    I might add a bedrock layer generate option later :3

    Oh, and when you create a map using this tool, can you post it here too please? :)
