Map Script – Random Earth Map Generator

This is the Random Earth Map (REM) Generator. This will randomly generate a map of Earth using data collected uasing public API’s from NASA, USGS, and the United Nations. Each map contains approximately 100 randomly selected cities with a GDP greater than $1Bn. The data comes from the World GDP Report. Supply/Resources are drawn from the officially reported statistics from the world’s strategic reserves. All locations are drawn using their official GPS locations. Manual tweaks to locations when locations had a conflict.

The generator is meant to work with the default unit set as well as the Modern Units Database (MUD) which is available on EDIBLE. If you wish to override the default settings, you can use the options below to modify the map to your preferences.

To use the map generator:

  1. Verify the values below match the expectations for the map you plan to create. If you don’t select a value, the map script will set a value for you.
  2. Click the Create Map button. This may take a few moments to complete.
  3. Depending on your browser settings, you will either be prompted to download a file or be directed to a page with the code.
  4. If you are given a downloadable file, save it and then move it to your game’s map folder (Windows default location is %AppData%/../LocalLow/KBSW/EmpireDeluxe/maps). If you are not able to find your downloaded file check your firewall and anti-virus settings.
  5. If you are taken to a web page of map code, Right click and same page as a file to your game’s map folder. This may register as a HTML file but should load correctly in the game.
  6. Start Empire Deluxe, open the map editor, and verify the map loads correctly.
