Random map generator

Postby dakky21 on Wed Apr 17, 2013 8:51 pm

What CC is missing the most ... is new maps everyday! I belive this is impossible but I must write it to be sure...

A script that would create an image of a map (grass, water, roads, mountains, deserts, unpassables, obstacles, bonuses etc.) and create a new, unique gameplay map every time it is started. Of course that may lead to dis-balance, but that is a part of "random" too.

Every single RTS game have a "custom" map where the map generator makes the map... so why not here?

The XML would have to line up with where the graphics are drawn. Not easy to do using raster. But in Vector...

Hard to do and not that useful.
The fun is about winning at known maps who pass through a process of distilling and have some meaning.

Well put.

I don't see this as being something as is a viable option. Especially when we are well over 200 maps.
