            The Black Hole is a bit big... But, ah, well, it's still POC.

                A bit of math and instanced static meshes.

                    The following is what the .uplugin file looks like, i tried to change the version number hoping that it would make a different.

                    Code:
                    {
                        "PluginFileVersion" : 1,
                    
                        "FriendlyName" : "Simplex Noise",
                        "Version" : 1,
                        "VersionName" : "1.0.0",
                        "CreatedBy" : "DavDad",
                        "CreatedByURL" : "https://art-and-code.com/",
                        "EngineVersion":"4.17",
                        "Description" : "SimplexNoise Blueprint Library to use in Unreal Engine 4",
                        "Category" : "ArtAndCodeSuite.SimplexNoise",
                        "EnabledByDefault" : true,
                    
                        "Modules" :
                        [        
                            {
                                "Name" : "SimplexNoise",
                                "Type" : "Runtime",
                                "LoadingPhase" : "PreDefault",
                                "WhitelistPlatforms" : [ "Win64", "Win32", "Mac" ]
                            },
                    
                    
                        ]
                    }
                    Anyways, any help would be appreciated since i have little experience with the C++ side of UE4


                    Edit: I fixed it, all i had to do was fix the header order....

                      The stuff about the build.cs are just warnings, you can (probably) ignore them.

                      The real error is this one:

                      Code:
                       
                       SimplexNoiseBPLibrary.cpp(1): error : Expected SimplexNoiseBPLibrary.h to be first header included.
                      As it says, you could try moving the SimplexNoiseBPLibrary.h to be the first include file in SimplexNoiseBPLibrary.cpp. Though without looking at it and trying to compile it myself I may be missing something.

                        Ok, i got it working by just changing the header order....which is confusing to me since i've never had to do that before...

                        However, i am having issues getting a demo working, I don't seem to have the same nodes that the OP has, my Simplex Noise 3D only has X Y Z and Return Value as well as the execution pins, but i do not have the rest of the pins on that node....

                        Also i have no nodes named Planet anything.... any ideas? have you had these issues?

                          Edit: Where's the download for this anyway? I can't seem to find it on the thread.

                          TBH I haven't played with this project at all. I'll look into it as planet terrain is one of my favorite things ever, and report back. Dunno about a timeframe though, might be a couple of days.

                          One thing you can do is look at the source and find which nodes it creates directly that way.

                            he never released anything for his blueprint examples... but the plugin he's using for the noise generation is here: https://github.com/devdad/SimplexNoise
