Hi Guys!

Its been a long time since i have been on this forum or even played Minetest, so I'm a bit outdated with what is possible nowadays. I want to know if there is a mod that will generate cities or towns automatically using mapgen.

i.e I walk around and as new parts of the map generate there is a chance of me having a generated and possible some road leading up to it.

The only thing you can find in vanilla Minetest are the dungeons. Duane is indeed working on a Lua and C++ version of his mapgen which generates villages.
If you would like to have buildings in other mapgens, check out the villages modback (or the main mods in it).

You can download City Scapes or Squaresville mods. They are like both.

I made a lua mapgen that makes modern-looking cities on flattened areas. However, it only makes straight, flat roads and empty shells of buildings, with no inhabitants. I'm not working on it anymore.

I've also got a C++ version, but it's veered away from the modern look and just makes ruins, along with similar flat, straight roads. Again, no villagers, but ruins are more for monsters anyway.
