Great generator, love the appearance of the little paths especially.  Some improvements/features I would like:

  • softer light on the cone shapes,
  • warp tool to change the basic shape or 'line' of the manor,
  • more toggle-able details such as you mentioned in your patreon post (chimneys, decorations, clutter),
  • custom color palettes,
  • toggle ability to standardize gable types across a building to provide more "unity" to the architectural style.

Additionally, what I immediately was thinking about is a tie-in to MegaSploot's Wonderdraft program.  At a basic level, if it were possible to export these as png's with custom color palette (such that colors could be set to Red, Green, Blue) they could easily be imported as Symbols to his program and town maps be made quickly.  On a significantly more involved level, requiring colloboration with MegaSploot, an in-program generator when placing building symbols.  Of course, that is likely a pipe dream.

But in any case, I look forward to whatever comes out of the mind of Watabou next!


Thanks! Some comments:

  • Intensity of specular light is a random parameter, sometimes it's zero (e.g. the first row, the second column on this image).
  • There will be some sort of editing tool, but first I'm going to enable creating more diverse shapes procedurally.
  • All my generators get customizable colors eventually :)
  • I'm not sure I get what you mean by "standardize gable types". Is it about some parts of the same building having gable roofs and other having hip roofs?
  • I don't know about support of "custom colors" mode, but at the very least there will PNG export with transparent background.

Regarding the gabled roofs, I meant dormers - the bits that stick out of the roof along a side.  And regarding "custom colors", basically it would just be using the palettes to color the house in three colors (red, green, blue) which Wonderdraft can then map to different colors within that software.
