Cliff landscape generator

Hi all,

thanks to a post on Eurobricks, I remembered I made a script to generate cliff landscape LDraw models a few years back.

It generates models like this one:

(higher resolution)

So I translated the code to Javascript (for portability) and put it there (licenced under GPL 3+).

You can download the project (e.g. as a zip archive), unpack it and open ldraw_cliff.html in a (recent) browser. 

The algorithms are quite simple so it’s really quick.

Note that it might go all wrong on you depending on the parameters (which aren’t really checked).  It will just produce nothing (but messages in the web console if you have one).

Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks!

I just uploaded a new version:
  • it corrects a few glitches with paths,
  • it allows multicoloured rocks / strata (enter a list of colours “L,M,N” to have three equal strata; you may add weights to make some strata thicker, “L,M:2,N:3” means L is used 1/6th of the height, M 1/3rd and N half the height).

Yes, I do enjoy it! Very nice tool, I let it run for several times and it generates you a great landscape to play with!

Thanks for sharing!

Oh wow, that is really nice! I tried a few runs with different parameters and all came out very nice.
Thanks!

Sylvain,

it would be great if you could write a short tutorial and put it with all links and pictures at the wiki. Doable?
