[Mod] Generative architecture [0.1.7] [projects]

by paramat » Post

Image


Download, rename folder to 'projects' https://github.com/paramat/projects/archive/master.zip
Code https://github.com/paramat/projects

projects 0.1.7 by paramat
For Minetest 0.4.8 stable onwards
Depends default
Licenses: code WTFPL

FInd a flat area and place the "projects:vertenta" / "Spawn Vertical Entrance Above" spawner.
The building entrance (20x30 nodes) will have a floor 1 node above the spawner, with it's minimum point directly above the spawner. Corridors and flats only spawn where there is empty space, so the building wil shape itself around terrain and trees. Entrance and vertical space above are force-placed.

This is really cool. I must say it is a unique and fresh way of approaching the concept of pregenerated buildings, and perhaps the cleanest I've seen. I look forward to seeing how work proceeds on it...

Please let Jotrx's skystation generate.(4:40)
Note that I've recently renamed myself on github and co. to "Desour". (I'm bad at naming things.)
Feel free to call me DS.

Version 0.1.7
Mod in basic form.
FInd a flat area and place the "projects:vertenta" / "Spawn Vertical Entrance Above" spawner.
The building entrance (20x30 nodes) will have a floor 1 node above the spawner, with it's minimum point directly above the spawner.
Corridors and flats only spawn where there is empty space, so the building wil shape itself around terrain and trees. Entrance and vertical space above are force-placed.

Wow. This could be made into some sort of alien world with space colonies and the like. I love it even in basic form.

Thanks for your support i appreciate it.
This method of generation has so much potential, since the elements are small this splits the server lag into many small parts, which is more acceptable to players than a long chunk generation time.
Next the corridors will spawn new ramp towers at their far ends, and i'll return to the 4 directions of the earlier experiment shown below, which looks better than the brutal tower block.
A massive generative building can spread unlimited slowly across a terrain. Another advantage to ABM generation is the surrounding terrain is already complete, so the voxelmanip can update the lighting acoss chunk borders without glitch.

Now can you make it wither and die, collapse, spreading slowly outward from the center?

No idea how to do that, but slow decay ABMs could be added, so building maintenance wouold be necessary.

Unlimited dungeon generation by abm and voxelmanip https://github.com/paramat/catacomb

Version 0.2.2 has the basic insane generation in all 4 directions. To test place a chamber spawner node underground. Beware this is not an 'on generated chunk' mapgen so the catacomb can and will spread through old world areas and destroy your creations, so set the limit parameters in the init.lua to contain the spread or test in a new world.

Enabling chamber intersection (easily done, i'll make it an option) makes stuff go really wild, and the structure changes around you as you explore.

Code: Select all

/giveme projects:vertenta
Then just place the block and wait a few seconds.

I very much like this :D

The on gripe I have is that the materials are limited.... though I do have a plan to make it more customizable though... :) Will adapt and publish/PR ;-)

Would it be of interest to rename the mod to something other than "projects".... more like, "generative-buildings" ...?

You can name your version whatever. Best to fork and publish your own version, as i don't tend to accept PRs to my mods, as i want them exactly as i want them.

This is named after the 'russian projects' as in housing projects, i have a love of some of the massive 'brutalist' / modernist russian (and elsewhere) high-rise apartment buildings of the 60s, 70s and later.

As with many of my mods this is somewhat a proof of concept, and could do with improvement and development. I often wish people would develop my mods further.
