Tin Posted June 19, 2017 Share Posted June 19, 2017 I ask Kinyajuu in a pm about the new hub system and he was kind enough to reply with some info on how it works to a degree. So here is what he relayed too me. F = move forward in facing direction + = turn right 90 degrees - = turn left 90 degrees ++= 180 degrees --= 180 degress [ = Save position and facing direction ] = return to last saved position and facing direction (if preceded by a [ ) * = pick from the alt_commands list [[ can be used but ]] cannot. example: [FF+FF[FF+FF <- this can work  <- this can work also. ]FF <- nope can't start with ']' or [FF+FF+FF]+FF] <- nope 2 ']' cannot work in succession. would need to be [FF+FF+FF][+FF]. You can start a string like example(s): ++F --F F[F[-F] *F Depending how you make your rules you can even do: ***** as a rule or as part of your axiom. Terrain is king. If the terrain is to rough, it won't develop the roads the way you want them sometimes not at all. The axiom is your main street layout. The rules are basically preset road additions. and the '*' is a type of random pull from the <alt_commands> that are from the <rule char>. Default already in the game: <street_gen level="15" length_multiplier="4"> <axiom value="[FF*L]+[FFJK]+[FF*L]+[FFJK]"/> <rule char="J" replace_with="[KYX*]"/> <rule char="K" replace_with="[F+F-F]"/> <rule char="L" replace_with="[*F]"/> <rule char="Y" replace_with="-FF[YX]*"/> <rule char="X" replace_with="+FF[XY]*"/> <alt_commands chars="J,K,L,Y,X"/> </street_gen> So depending how robust and versatile your axiom is along with the rules, they can also affect how big the hubs 'MAY' get depending on the terrain. *Note* Axioms can be used by themselves without reference to the rules. So with the question Q: Can Hubs generate bigger cities/towns A: Yes! Depending on how rough the terrain is around where the hub is placed it can stunt it's growth. *The flatter and more open the Terrain is, the more likely the hub is going to grow* Pic of what can be accomplished (still a wip): [ATTACH=CONFIG]21084[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]21085[/ATTACH] Edit: this is just a confirmation and further explanation on what StompNZ has already discovered.
