  • Big update v.0.2.0: "Exploring New Worlds"

    Added a lot of new features:

    • Small Block Builder now can create random worlds with SBB World Generator. These worlds include hills, lakes and trees and they are eight times bigger than the old worlds so you have a lot more to explore!
    • create multiple worlds with different names, save them and come back to them again
    • new dialogs in the main menu and in the game
    • generate worlds again using seeds
    • added clay as new block
    • even more little improvements to make SBB better to play

    Example for a world generated with SBB World Generator:

    Please read more about the new update in the description of Small Block Builder in TechNet Gallery.

  • It's amazing what you come to programmed using Small Basic from Microsoft.
    What fantastic programming, wow!
    It reminds me of my first game SimCity in 87, there was a generator of terrain and landscapes, a bit like this program.

    Perhaps someday someone will write a version of Simcity in Small Basic, in any case this would be a good Challenge for the year 2016.

    here is  the SBB World Generator gives to me:
