Cylindrical World Generator

A world generator/simulation for Procedural Game Jam 2014. The world appears two-dimensional, but there is a height value for each x/y coordinate. The map is cyclindrical because it wraps in the x-axis but not in the y-axis.

The simulation uses a number of procedures:

  • Procedural "randomness" based on sine curve
  • Plate tectonics using vornoi cells
  • Constant water volume and sea-level adjustments
  • Height Smoothing
  • Raindrop Erosion
  • Coastal erosion
  • Micro-organism arrival via comet and population growth
  • Grass evolution and growth
