Generate random terrain using cellular automata.

Project description


Generate random terrain using cellular automata.


  • Python 3.x
  • Any Operating System


automatagen is published on PyPi, so you only need to run the following command:

$ pip install automatagen


Note: TerrainGenerator.generate(width, height) returns a 2d array of boolean values. All visualisations are made using numpy and matplotlib.

Instantiating a new TerrainGenerator:

from automatagen import TerrainGenerator

terrgen = TerrainGenerator()

Generating a random 196x64 size map:

map = terrgen.generate(196, 64)

196x64 default settings

Instantiating a TerrainGenerator with different options:

terrgen = TerrainGenerator(initial_density = 0.25, steps = 10, loneliness_limit = 5)

Generating a random 196x64 map with the new options:

map = terrgen.generate(196, 64)

196x64 different options

Generating a 196x64 map with a specific seed:

map = terrgen.generate(seed = 9001)

196x64 seeded map

And generating another one with the same seed:

map = terrgen.generate(seed = 9001)

196x64 seeded map
