MapGenerator

Generation of procedural maps. The main idea behind the algorithm is taken from Amit's Polygonal Map Generation for Games. It has the following steps:

  • Place a number of random but uniformly distributed points (using Poisson Disk Sampling).
  • Calculate the Voronoi diagran of the points.
  • Using Perlin Noise determine which cells are land and which are water.
  • Calculate the elevation of each point as its distance to the sea. Normalize all the heights.
  • Place river sources in random spots and let them flow downwards.
  • Calculate the moisture od each point given its distance to the sea (less moisture) and rivers (more moisture)

And that's pretty much it. You can find a couple of results here. The repo also contains a Poisson Disk Sampling implementation and a Markov Chains based name generator.
