Algorithms for GeoSphere generation and random planet surface

March 12, 2009

OK, so there are a number of ways of generating a geosphere, but I found this article very useful indeed.

Basically start with a simple shape like an octohedron, and start subdividing the surfaces.  Before you know it, one GeoSphere – great !

Now there are millions of pages about random planet surface generation.  Generating something unique though took some digging.  This algorithm was perfect for my needs
