spacesh1ps

Procedural spaceship generator in Python.

This uses a slightly modified version of the awesome SpaceshipGenerator blender script by Michael Davies to generate spaceships and post them to Twitter, Tumblr and Mastodon.

I currently have it designed to run on a schedule every 6 hours and it generates an animated gif once a day at midnight, other times it just generates a single ship image.

I made the loosely Chris Foss inspired hull and light textures in Photoshop, the space backgrounds are all CC0 images mostly from nasa. I also added a spaceship name generator.

Operation:
python spacesh1ps.py

Requirements:

  • ImageMagic to generate the animated gifs.
  • Tweepy for posting tweets.
  • pyTumblr for posting to Tumblr.
  • Mastodon.py for posting to Mastodon.
