    Ok, you could also start a thread here if you want more general feedback. I tend to do things a bit unconventionally.

    I really just need a starting point and some fairly general questions about world generation, but I'll probably make a thread. Thanks :)

    Be aware what you are getting into. You need to be very good at mathematics and algorithms, have a full understanding of java, especially arrays and behavior of binary numbers and floating point, and understand or be prepared to learn interpolation and noise generation.

    I don't know too much about that sort of stuff, but I do really enjoy learning what I've learned and learning more. I'll check out some stuff on noise generation online to get a better idea of that before I post anything, though.

    Most of the stuff you will find online is very basic, lots of people cover it for procedural generation, but it rarely goes beyond pathetic 2D heightmaps. I can teach you some tricks and ways to combine noise eventually, if you want.

    I'll probably go with 2D noise for awhile, but I'd definitely love to learn 3D sometime when I've got 2D and just the NMS stuff in general down. I'm generating "planets", so basically each world is a random biome with custom generators for each planet. I don't mind it being basic for now, but it would be pretty cool to make it more advanced later on.
