Added a tool (first iteration) to generate preview maps for existing world files.

 

In case you customedit maps, or want to cheat in MultiPlayer ;) 

But to cheat in MultiPlayer this tool in current iteration requires dtm.raw and splat3.png, and server sends to clients only processed ones  🙃

Btw, I really appreciate NITROGEN, great job you did there!

Hello, I created 2 prefabs this winter and I finally decide to test the generation for a new map. I am quite happy with the result and even beyond my expectations!

But I have a question, does Nitrogen take this prefab .xml line into account:
<property name = "AllowedBiomes" value = "snow" />

It would seem that no ... Can we always make sure that a POI is generated only in a selected biome?

 

And also I ask how the amount of POI generated is managed.
If the prefablist contains only 2 prefabs tagged "mountain" this does not affect the TOTAL QUANTITY of prefabs generated of this type? So the only way to decrease the generation amount of a specific POI is to add more POIs tagged "mountain" in the list?

it seems a bit archaic ...

Too bad for the restriction by biome, it's a shame, often it's the biome that inspires me to create certain POIs. I hope that this function will be reinstated. But is it only Nitrogen that does not allow this or also the RWG of the basic game?

(Otherwise I should have specified that for the generated world that we see on my screenshots I only put 7 different prefabs in the list ....)

Okay, next step is to share my creations on Nexus!

Would changing GameWorld to Mytherys Magic do this?!? LOL  Shouldn't it be RWG?!?

Whatever the worldname is in the folder, is what you need in the startup script.

For example, here's mine:

<property name="GameWorld" value="Dragon"/>

WorldGenSeed and WorldGenSize aren't relevant, because the RWG isn't called.

 

To try to make it make a little more sense, if you were to use pregen02, you would type pregen02 in the value section of GameWorld. pregen02 is already a folder in your world save folders. So, if the world is already built, you don't want it to call RWG. For RWG to know what file to use, it goes based on whatever the WorldGenSeed is, turning that into a name, and if the world already exists based on what's in there, then it loads that instead of creating a new world.

 

Hopefully that helps!

Heya

Running into an issue with a prefab I inserted into the prefabs.txt file.

Here is the code:

Altered_Sample,DOWNTOWN;WILDERNESS,0,-2,44,22,62,alone;unique

 

My issue is that (from my understanding) using alone;unique should give, at the very least one instance of the prefab upon generation.

Except that it's not happening, rather one of five gens this morning so far (as I am trying for somewhat center, and in forest) has the intended prefab.

I know I could just slap it in there in world editor, but I want the location to be somewhat unknown, as searching for it is half the fun.

wrong... the game will pick from a list yes, but that does not mean that your prefab will appear in the world

ive played 100+ games with my AncientTomb prefab in the rotation and have never come across it in the wildernes ... like ever... even though it is in my list

its all just a roll of the dice really... then there is the chance of you actually finding the prefab as you wander the world

nitrogen may spawn the prefab but have fun finding it unless you cheat and fly around

If you have a building on your list and you are sure its entered and tagged correctly, its never a crap shoot.

Check the height limitation for the tag you assign and make sure you have the space at those heights for the prefab.

Did you test this alone on a flat open map?

@Damocles Fellow programmer here - any chance you'd be willing to share the source code and/or open source the project? I ask because I've got an idea that could build off of what you've got so far, and would be willing to help a little with tidying up code, bugfixing, etc.  What do you think?

New version online, (link in first post, experimental build)

 

-new Highway feature:

    you can generate double or single track highways that cross the map North-South and East-West
    they can take up a lot of performance, as the highway is visualized using prefab elements

    
-updated included prefablist to  CompoPack 43

 

-batch generation of maps, you can generate more maps at one time
    limited to 10 maps, in order not to accidentally flood your computer with too much mapdata

 

-tool: ability to generate preview maps from already existing maps

Thanks for the offer, but I dont plan to open source the project currently

Damocles - I assume that A19 will not be an issue for the Nitrogen generator. Do you expect to have to tweak it at launch or do you expect it to work upon the A19 release? Just curious. 

 

P.S. Great job of the highways. Can't wait to try them out.

I have to see if there where any major changes in A19. I suppose it will only change some prefabs, but not the word-file structure.

Unless they throw in some akward new file formats... never know.

Just tried the batch create, however it only generated a preview map for the final (10th) map generated.

Works on my side. So the preview map folder is empty on the others? Any error messages?

You could launch it via the .bat file, and then view any Exception that might pop up.

 

-> also, always delete your configUI files in resources, if you have overwritten the last NitroGen installation,  as they might change over the versions. They get recreated when not there.

What where your settings?

You could post your configUI.txt, and chosen map size.

I will run with those settings on another PC and let you know. Its currently generating 10 x 8k's and seems to be doing previews so far (had to run with the '16k' bat else it ran out of memory).

 

Additional: copied that configui.txt to my other PC and the problem reoccurs there in the same manor. Seems its a combination of those settings.

Thanks, also saw an error. Now I can recreate on the main branch.

 

@Doggeh

Yes, please change the No POIs in biome to "no placement limits".

This feature is kind of buggy,

I will take it out in the next update.

 

Thanks for your research.

It’s sad that all the water in the world is useless. 
do you have any thoughts, add to the generator, new placement zone types. 
so that the generator identifies large lakes as a new placement grid, and spawns water prefabs on it. Like vessel by Pille. 
can you add new type lanscape: water.
so that you can adjust the amount of land covered by water through the slider.

Any chance to make the highways respect the mask or even better have a special highway mask? 
don't get me wrong, I love the asset and I knew this was a stupid idea since the beginning, but I wanted to do a sort of stress test to see what was the outcome and I couldn't help it but laugh at it x)

For example, I could make a mask like this one and then the highways would generate only where I want them to.

Hi There Damocles

 

Thanks for the awesome work.

 

With regards to roads and the city grid, do you know when that is going to full completed?

 

Would it be possible to generate roads with sidewalks, street signs, street lamps, speed bumps, traffic circles ect.

 

Thanks for all your hard work.

 

Anni
