World Generation

Recommended Posts

I used to think Minecraft had the best world generation.  After playing Vintage Story for a couple weeks, I now realize it does not.  I was feeling a little lonely, so I wanted to hang out with the villagers for a while, but I don't know man...  I might just have to wait for Vintage Story to get its own villagers.  Minecraft feels like such a downgrade now.  :P

Yea, it can be a lonely, sparse world in VS at times.  I find the absolute worst to be when you do finally stumble across a trader's hut and it's empty.  =(

Course my worlds tend to be generated prior to the fix for that, but still...

If you're doing single player, you can always jump into creative mode ("gamemode creative") and place a trader.  They're a searchable 'object' in the creative inventory.  I just wish there was randomized one, so it doesn't feel as much like cheating picking your own specific one.  Some are more desirable than others imo.

Oh, hey!  Thanks, redram.  I really just want NPCs as decoration, so that kind of works for me.  It would be great if they didn't all look the same, but beggars cant be choosers.  This is good enough for now.

Im hardly an expert on the game, but I personally have not seen any bodies of water that were big enough to really call an ocean.  The roadmap has boats though, so i would think they would add oceans when they add the boats.

As for why your just now finding out about the game... I only discovered it when watching stuff on youtube.  Someone who played another game I was interested in also had a video of Vintage Story.  It was kind of lucky, because there were almost no videos of this game at the time.  That was a month and a half ago.  About the time I discovered the game, I think a lot of others did too, as there are now quite a few videos of the game.

That is the same way I found out as well. well when if they do add oceans in Be nice to have like some really deep ones like 100-500 blocks deep would be amazing.

No oceans in the game right now, and it's not clear if there will be.  As I recall, Saraty found oceans in TFC (the minecraft mod that inspired VS) to be a 'waste of space'.   And there were some pretty bad huge endless oceans it's true.  Personally I don't think that makes any and all oceans bad.  I think oceans would actually be good, and I think they'd be necessary to have 'realistic' rivers, which I think would be extremely good to have.   But in any case, that's sort of the state of things at the moment.

Thanks for the info. Now I do not have to keep regenerating  a world just to fine a ocean

I have come across vast bodies of water that go as far as the game will render. However they are always ultimately circled by land rather than the other way round though I don't see that as an issue.

Yes, I agree. When I first got the game and generated a few worlds and after seeing the world generation in game, going back to Minecraft is a vast downgrade. It is just better, and overall prettier, and I enjoyed traversing the world far, far more. The only thing the game needs to right now in my opinion is villages and villagers. 👍
