造倉庫 ぞうそうこ Zōsōko Zosoko
Sōkoban puzzle generator
Sōkoban is a Japanese transport puzzle in which the player pushes boxes around a warehouse. See wikipedia for more information about Sōkoban.
This library will generate random Sōkoban puzzles for use in games. A player is included so you can quickly get a feel for the runtime of the algorithm and the library's features.
Build in eclipse, then execute with:
- java -cp bin net.bytten.zosoko.player.Main -box-lines
Also requires my gameutil library, which you can get the source for on github.
- -width=W Sets the width of generated puzzles.
- -height=H Sets the height of generated puzzles.
- -boxes=N Sets the number of boxes and goals in generated puzzles.
- -unbounded Allow the player to walk around outside the bounds of the puzzle.
- -test Always generates the puzzle designed for testing the renderer and controller.
- -limit-goal-experiments=N Limit the number of combinations of goals the generator tries for each map.
- -limit-depth=N Limit the depth of the farthest state search.
- -time-limit=N Limit how long (in milliseconds) to search.
- -box-lines Sets the scoring metric to purely box-lines rather than the default based on the paper.
The best results seem to be given with widths and heights that are multiples of 3 and when -box-lines is given.
- Blue squares are boxes.
- The red circle is the player.
- Use the arrow keys to move the player and push boxes.
- Press R to reset the puzzle.
- Press F5 to generate a new puzzle.
- Needs significant clean-up.
- Profiling indicates the slowest part is PuzzleMap.getPlayerSpacePartition(). The use of this can be eliminated entirely by implementing the suggestions in PlayerCloud, or maybe there is a way to speed it up?
- After that is Vec2I.add, which must mean that there are no further bottlenecks.
- See if making FarthestStateFinder.go return a set of states would make the default scoring metric work better.
