How to Increase the number of dungeons generated by mapgen

by Neuromancer » Thu Jan 07, 2016 02:47

How can I increase the number of dungeons generated by mapgen? The only reference I found to dungeon in minetest game is in C:\Users\Audoo\Downloads\minetest-0.4.13-win64-msvc\minetest-0.4.13\games\minetest_game\mods\default\mapgen.lua but I couldn't find where I could increase the number of dungeons in the mapgen. Is it part of the engine, or is there a .lua file I can tweak?

Modify the mgv7_np_cave1 perlin noise, or the mgv6_np_cave noise for mgv6.

You can edit map_meta.txt in your world and regenerating all the terrain by removing map.sqlite (while your server is shut down), and try and play with it.

^ Cave noise won't affect dungeons.

Only up to 1 dungeon is generated per chunk, and each has up to 16 rooms, both these values are hardcoded in C++. There is such a thing as dungeon parameters, currently inaccessible to players, dungeon number per chunk and room number could be added. If i can work out how to make dungeon parameters settable i'll do it.

If you didn't want more than one per chunk (which seems extravagant to me), wouldn't just exposing the dungeon rarity noise be sufficient? Adding more rooms would be nice, but it might end up being a pain.

Decorated Dungeon
(241.89 KiB) Not downloaded yet
If you do make any changes, anything you can do to make them more easily decoratable, say by being able to get the coordinates of the room boundaries would be way cool. That way you could figure out a good place to put anvils, cauldrons, book cases, cobwebs, chandeliers, dead torches, chests and the like would be wonderful. Also it would be nice to have rooms with more varied heights. Most of them are either extremely tall, or just 2 blocks tall. It would be good to have some 3 & 4 blocks tall. Although I'm wondering if it just makes more sense to go more the route of the villages modpack, and have a bunch of pre-decorated dungeon rooms that could be appended on to dungeons. It seems like x-decor would be needed to decorate these dungeons, The cobwebs, iron bars, barrels, etc

Yes.

Dungeon room height varies but also depends on whether they are stone or sandstone dungeons or desert temples.
