CityGenerator

City generation project

CityGenerator

This repository was originally created for a Tycoon-like game, which is abandoned now. As the city-generation module of the game is done, the repository was renamed and restructured to share this part of the project.

Installation

This project requires dotnetcore to be installed on your machine.
Clone the project and simply run dotnet restore to restore all needed packages of the project.

Usage

The heart of the city generation library is the CityGenerator class which contains a single public static method for generating a city.

BuildCity

BuildCity() takes up to four arguments, namely width, height, seed and optionally config. To generate a 30x30 city, run the method like this: > Note: Using the same seed will always grant the same city as a result.

City.City c = CityGenerator.BuildCity(30, 30, 921993);

To get a string-representation of this city, use ToString(). This will render all buildings like the following (including the linebreaks):

Config

You can define the probability of buildings spawning in a Dictionary. This is the default configuration:

Building Name Chance to spawn
Hospital 10
PoliceStation 10
Office 80
School 15

The numbers resemble the probability as Chance to Spawn / 1000. That means a Hospital may spawn in 10 of 1000 cases. To increase or lower the probability, change the value of generatorRange.
