Nortantis v1.0
Nortantis v1.0 An open source fantasy map generator for Windows and Linux. It uses a simple tectonic plate simulation to create islands and continents with trees, rivers, and mountains. The result has the appearance of an old-fashioned hand-drawn map. Prerequisites To run Nortantis you must have Java 10 or later installed. If you don't already have it installed, you can find it here. Make sure to choose 64-bit if you have a 64-bit computer (almost all computers are). With 32-bit Java you can't generate high resolution maps because it can't allocate enough memory. Your computer must have at least 3 GB of RAM memory Run The download above gives you a zip file containing an executable jar file and a folder of assets such as mountain and tree icons. The way to run Nortantis depends on your operating system: -Windows - unzip the downloaded file, open it, and double click run.bat. -Linux - unzip the downloaded file, open it, and run run.bash Generating a map requires some intense computing, so it can take up to a minute depending on the speed of your computer and the size of the map you generate. If you want to generate maps at higher resolutions than the default, you can modify run.bat (or run.bash for Linux) to increase the amount of memory Nortantis can use. Find the line that contains -XX:MaxRAMPercentage=50.0. The 50.0 is the percentage of RAM memory it can use. Change it to whatever limit you want up to 100.0. Make sure to include the .0 at the end because Java requires it. When done, that line should look like: When Nortantis opens it checks the amount of RAM allocated and adjusts the maximum on the Resolution slider in the Background tab to the maximum size of map you can generate with that ...

yWriter 7
yWriter 7 yWriter is a word processor which breaks your novel into chapters and scenes, helping you keep track of your work while leaving your mind free to create. It will not write your novel for you, suggest plot ideas or perform creative tasks of any kind. yWriter was designed by an author, not a salesman! If you're just embarking on your first novel a program like yWriter may seem like overkill. I mean, all you have to do is type everything into a word processor! Sure, but wait until you hit 20,000 words, with missing scenes and chapters, notes all over your desk, characters and locations and plot points you've just added and which need to be referenced earlier ... it becomes a real struggle. Now imagine that same novel at 40,000 or 80,000 words! No wonder most first-time writers give up. (Although yWriter was designed for novels, enterprising users have created their own translation files to customise the program to work with plays, non-fiction and even sermons.) Who designed it? "I'm Simon Haynes, the designer and programmer. I have twenty-five years computer programming experience and I'm also the author of a science fiction comedy series and a new middle-grade science fiction comedy for ages 9-12. ALL of my novels were written in yWriter." "Hands down the easiest and most versatile writing software I've tried and used" M. Scott Rogers Because I'm an experienced programmer AND a published author, yWriter contains a bunch of tools a working novelist will find useful, and nothing some marketing expert came up with to promote additional sales. What's so special about yWriter? I really struggled with my first novel because I wrote slabs of text into a big word processor file and I just couldn't make sense of the whole thing at once. No real overview, no easy jumping from scene ...
