Like Alain, mentioned: those wooden floors are map-based, and using 
appropriate maps you can certainly achieve similar floors.

Another way to go is by using isosurfaces. An excellent example of this 
was developed by Christoph Hormann:

Also in the past, a couple of macros were developed, one by Dan 
Hentschel, and one by myself. They are fairly correct both but not as 
spectacular as map-based floors. If you are interested, I can post them
