It is my objective to be able to predict terrain shape before generation. What I think I need to do this is the function or set of functions that relate to the variables listed in “Terrain height and volativity” within the biome config files.
I have a good idea from experimentation how the variables work and what results they will give, but because some variables seem to have a relationship between each other, and because that relationship does not appear to be linear or intuitive, I would like to see if I can derive it from the functions used to generate the terrain that uses those values. From this, I would like to be able to present definitive models of said relationships for anyone that can find a use for them.
So my question is a simple one: if said function(s) is/are what I am looking for, where can I find them? If not, what do I actually need?
