Astray

Astray is a lua based maze, room and dungeon generation library for dungeon crawlers and rougelike video games.

Quick Look

local astray = require('astray')

-- This maze generator can only generate uneven maps.
-- To get a 39x39 maze you need to Input
local height, width = 40, 40
--	Astray:new(width/2-1, height/2-1, changeDirectionModifier (1-30), sparsenessModifier (25-70), deadEndRemovalModifier (70-99) ) | RoomGenerator:new(rooms, minWidth, maxWidth, minHeight, maxHeight)
local generator = astray.Astray:new( height/2-1, width/2-1, 30, 70, 50, astray.RoomGenerator:new(4, 2, 4, 2, 4) )

local dungeon = generator:Generate()

local tiles = generator:CellToTiles( dungeon )

for y = 0, #tiles[1] do
    local line = ''
	for x = 0, #tiles do
		line = line .. tiles[y][x]
	end
	print(line)
end
