Hey, this is one of the things that actually might be useful!!
It's a map generator! It's not a normal map generator, though: It's the Atlas Map Generator!!!
The program is made in java, and will (eventually) be used to create maps that are better than the standard map editor. The program also acrually makes real, playable maps!

SETUP A) Unzip the package Atlas034.zip to some temporary directory, you can delete it later B) Double-click on install.bat C) Start the program by going to Start->Programs->Atlas Map Generator D) Mess with the controls until you have generated a map you like E) Press save F) Copy the file Atlas.Civ4WorldBuilderSave from C:\Program Files\Map Generator to C:\My Documents\My Games\Civ IV\Saves\WorldBuilder.

MANUAL INSTALLATION If you have a non-English windows version or if you would like to have Atlas installed somewhere else than the default C:\Program Files\MapGenerator, here is how to install the Atlas manually. A) Go to the folder where you want Atlas, for example C:\Civ4Utilities or N:\Programs\Junuxx\Atlas B) Make a new folder (File>New>Folder) and name it Atlas or something like that. C) Unzip the file you downloaded here D) You can now double-click start.bat to launch Atlas. You can add a shortcut to your start menu or desktop if you like. You can even set the shortcut to use the icon included. Search for a Windows tutorial if you don't know how to add a shortcut or change its icon. 3. TROUBLESHOOTING AND KNOWN ISSUES If Atlas doesn’t work on your pc, the first thing you should try is checking your Java version. Atlas does not work with Java Runtime Environment versions below 1.5.0 If you can't get it to run or you encounter another problem, feel free to send me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
