Oh! mkies, I could probably make a schematic
Err, I realise now how long its going to take to get the core schematic. we might try and make a communal effort... glowstone doesnt work for the look... so I need to work out another method of lighting that would fit the grid. xD, I'll get back to you...
That's why I wanted the example, so there wouldn't be any issues between you and the developer who picks it up.
Yeah, good idea xD
Kinda like this.. yeah it's glass, disregard the grass and the lights and all that... changed the bilding size to 8x8, height is in stories of course.. at least 4.
The layer beneath the building, I want to be smooth stone..
Idk what we'll do for lighting but I wanna see a demo anyway, if I've missed any details please reply and tell me. :3
So smooth stone at ground level, brick and glass for the building, and a random number of floors per building? Any kind of doorway or stairs between floors? And then also, how much space between buildings?
Wait, just realized you said 8 block wide streets in the first post.
yeah, Edit: smooth stone at ground level within the building, double stone slab around the buildings, and single cobblestone for the road. and smooth stone fills the insides of the buildings
Ok. Bad news. Slabs can't be assigned a type during chunk generation. They have to be assigned after that by a populator. Do you really need slabs instead of solid blocks?
.. nuu, it could be cobblestone block road and double slab footpath (i assume thats a solid block)
Yes it's a solid block, but that's not the problem. The problem is that all single slabs are one block type and have a special value set on them that can't be set in the chunk generator. The same with the double slabs.
but the default is stone right? so if you leave it won't it fall to stone anyway? (just for the footpath, the road can be cobble block)
Yes, stone slab is the default. Are you looking at double stone slab "sidewalk" and standard cobblestone road?
Eventually, the ability to choose custom .schematics for this plugin would be awesome.
customizing .schematics would be cool, but I doubt that your posting on the right thread.
Also I think it might be one of those np = p issues.... @richard Roberston is it?, coz if it would be possible to just give block ids to co-ords, then have an algorithm to make it into valid code, wouldn't have been done?
It's not unsolvable. You just can't customize slabs in the chunk generator stage. I'm currently writing a generator that will create the basic buildings and you can decide whether you like it. It might be finished tonight before I go to bed but probably not finished until tomorrow.
The reason you can't customize it is that you need to provide a single byte in an array that represents a block data type. Things like non-default slab textures require the material data (usually referred to as damage) to be set as well, and that is outside of the one byte allocated at the generator stage.
Alright. It is in no way finished, but here is my first test of the generator. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22618541/Bukkit/EndlessCity-dev-SNAPSHOT.jar
Drop it in your plugins folder and it automatically creates a world named "test" (hard coded for now) and has a command /moveme which teleports you to the world. Lemme know if you like/dislike it and where to go from here.
One known bug so far, the sidewalk is missing one corner. I already know that so don't worry about it.
Ah alright, I was afraid of that , thanks for the test version x3, testing it now.
Okie, I Tested it, it's working pretty good, didn't notice any bugs other than the corners of course, can you make a version with the blocks of houses (6x2 houses), with footpath around each and then road between the sets of houses next? :3
Not exactly sure what to do about resources like wood and all that... though it's not exactly intended for being a starting world anyway, so yeah, so far it's good x3
How much space between buildings in a block?
Each buildings has its own footpath o.o, sooo... 2 blocks wide of double stone slab :3
I added it as a file on bukkitdev so it can get approved and found on the list, hope you don't mind
That's fine. Sorry I haven't been able to finish the next one yet. Having some issues finding time with my work schedule. I only get two days off a week and they are never in a row.
That's alright, I knew you were busy before you started,
My friend, who is hosting the server finds this prototype awsome, btw, and a little creepy, which is awsome xD
Glad to see I did a good job.
Simply have some special "buildings" like parks (with trees) and generate dungeons and ores underground as normal.
//EDIT: And for the buildings: They need doors and inventory! for lightning you could use 2 block thick ceiling with some glowstone...
If you want an ores to generate very fast, I modified bananagen's code so that it creates ores in generation (so it's not a populator).
For now I was ignoring everything underground and just generating stone for simplicity sake.
Yeah, that's far from urgent :3
@Richard Robertson I don't mean to be pushy, but... do have anything that's got enough change or fixes to justify it as a Beta version (as opposed to the alpha) so I can apply for the syndication, and public availability of the project?
I know the proper completion is going to take awhile, and I'm willing to wait. I just really wanna go on the list
