Re: Improved Procedural Lavaland Generation

Yeah, I studied spelunky’s procedural generation methods back in the day (which isn’t hard, they’re amazingly simple). There’s a measure of direct influence. To be clear, I don’t currently have the coder chops to implement this myself, but I’d be happy to work with anyone who wanted to try. Should a...

Improved Procedural Lavaland Generation

This would be a more regulated procedural design method that lavaland could use, basically creating a macro-scale blueprint before that part where it lays down all the tunnels and lava. It would integrate the lavaland ruins into a more natural procedural environment, and create an interesting maze o...
