  1. I no longer have the code, but it was last written in Delphi 7. The algorithm is fractal in nature, using Brownian motion calculations, and uses recursion. The output of the file has to have dimensions which are a power of 2, plus 1. The first time through the function, the "altitudes" of the main 9 points are calculated. The main 9 are upper-left, upper-center, upper-right, left-center, center, right-center, lower-left, lower-center, and lower-right. The map is then divided into four quadrants and each of those is sent into the recursive function. The function randomly calculates the "a
  2. Can someone at least give me a list of chapter headings for what's in Volumes I and II? Since I have Champions Complete, Champions Powers, and Hero Designer, I think I only need Volume II, but I'm not sure. What do each of the books actually talk about?

    In the Hero system, movement is measured in meters per phase. Meters aren't used in the U.S. culture. Phases are "measured" by speed (SPD), and phases are within turns, which last 12 seconds. The number of miles per hour achieved by a character is dependent on their movement (purchased or unpurchased) and their SPD characteristic. This chart, when printed, provides a handy reference to know how fast, in U.S. terms, a character can go given these two variables. Since normal humans are given SPD 2 and running at 12 m, you can see this computes to about 4.5 MPH, which an average, healthy,

    Several years ago I wrote a terrain generator for SimCity 3000. It was later used to create terrains for Auran Trainz simulator. The code was never part of either of these software packages, but users could save the grey-scale output from my program and import it as terrain inside these other programs. Internally, the program uses a random mid-point displacement algorithm to generate the grey-scale bitmap you see in the middle of the program. A color-map bitmap in the same folder acts as a palette to render the grey-scale bitmap to the right-hand side of the program. The right-hand map
  5. If you want your Characteristic totals to show negative numbers when you "sell back" Characteristic points, change the formulas using this pattern: =CEILING((B9-F9)*H9,SIGN(B9-F9)) For those that aren't as familiar with Excel functions, I'll explain this. By subtracting the F column from the B column, you're seeing how much more than "normal" your character's Characteristic value is. Like, if your PC has 15 STR, the default is 10, so the result of that subtraction will be 5. It multiplies this value by the other value in column H, which is the cost. If the cost is 3, then 5 would be
  6. I found a few problems with the character sheet and thought I'd post a solution rather than complain, since this was great of this member to post. Please note that I am going off of Champions Complete 6th Edition, which is a subset of the Hero System, 6th Edition. Perhaps costs are not the same; I don't know: Cell H13 should be 1 not 2 (for EGO cost) Cell H22 should be 1 not 2 (for REC cost) Cell H23 should be .2 not .5 (for END cost) Cell H25 should be .5 not 1 (for STUN cost), then the Format needs to be changed to Fraction From page 13 of CC6e, "When an ability cost 1 CP for more than 1
