I overslept, then spent a bit of time today helping a friend. As a result, not much progress was made on this project today. However, here's another pair of planets generated with slightly different parameters than yesterday. Increasing the "restart speed limit" parameter from the default 5.2 value generally allows less time for the simulation to run per cycle. Both were generated with nearly identical parameters to each other, but notice the difference one cycle vs. two cycles makes. There are more mountains, and more larger mountains, with two cycles.
|Result from seed 53, 1 cycle, 15 plates, sea level 0.75, restart speed 9|
