This project is on GitHub! Find the most cutting-edge version here. DFFD will also be updated with major releases.

Bugs and suggestions here.

Bay 12 forum thread here, with example images.

Ever wonder what your awesome DF world would look like in real life, from space? Well wonder no more!
This script will take your Legends mode detailed maps and magically convert them into a satellite image.

-Accurately shows land as affected by temperature, biomes, vegetation, elevation, volcanic activity, and more
-Image scales are matched up to be an exact fit with the DF map assuming each tile in DF to be 5 by 5 feet, meaning that all the features are actual size
-Dirt, mountain, and tree imagery are all taken from actual satellite imagery (of Saudi Arabia, northern India, and Brazil)
-Water, ice cap, desert, vegetation, and atmosphere coloring all modeled off real-world satellite imagery

Please note that the code is heavily based on PeridexisErrant's and YukiHyou's batch files and Parket147's GIMP script, which is based on GFXiNXS's original Photoshop script. My ability to code in Batch and Scheme was close to none, so huge thanks to them for providing a lot of of the code already.
See the original Fantasy Map Maker thread here.

Please read the readme carefully!
