Procedural Cities on the BLDGBLOG

An interesting article over at the BLDGBLOG about procedural generation of cities. That’s a topic I’m really interested in and that article is a good quick read with some interesting links to further stories.

Especially noteworthy are the game Subversion from Introversion and the procedural city project from Shamus Young of DM of the Rings webcomic fame. Also Viktor Antonov, designer of City 17 is mentioned in there. If you remember, I’ve already stumbled over him in the EDGE podcast I linked to a few days back.

Check it out.

Also if anyone has some additional info on Marco Corbettas Structure, I’d love if you could share…

EDIT: Here’s a YouTube video on Structure.

  1. Yeah I know Greeble. I’ve used it years ago. I actually found it on the cd that came with a 3d modelling book.

    Also I think we talked about the ETH Spinoff before. It certainly looks interesting but so far I think subversion is the most promising project. It certainly looks the coolest to me.
