Perlin Noise Plugin

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • This plugin was actually a smaller part of a gigantic plugin that I'm working on - the bigger one is specifically tailored to a game I'm making, so I can't release it, but I'll release some information about it in a few days in movie form. I know a few of you from chat have already seen it in it's infancy.

    Here's a hint though -

    When I make that announcement you guys will probably want to light up the nearest illegal substance, throw on a smooth tune, and put a sheet of plastic on your chair to protect it when you crap your pants.

    The whole point of this plugin was to figure out how to use the plugin SDK to port the bigger part of that project over to Construct from it's testbed application - it's already written and working in a text console form. But...of course it was also because I truly believe that procedurally enhanced games are better than static ones. The more people come up with the better, for everybody.

  • My latest game (planning on a possible commercial release), is very procedurally enhanced. Can't wait to see what your plugin can do.

  • you need to release info about that game sometime davio

  • Nice plugin, but why Chugs?

  • Nice plugin, but why Chugs?

    Mainly a reference to his lighter.

  • Well the current thinking is that the universe is flat....

  • Recently I reinstalled Construct and it took me quite a while to find this plugin (had to search Arsonide's posts). Is this plugin completed? Can it be moved to the appropriate forum?

  • I've had no issues, other than it not working when the octaves, and frequency were set too high.

    But that's only when the size was set low.

  • I guess it's completed, I haven't received any complaints about it. Feel free to move it wherever you like.

    I saw someone in Construct's chat talking about Unity 3D, and went to go check that out, and am now happily addicted to everything about it. I've already implemented several very important features of my space game in it including crafting, inventory, space movement in 3D, and power management - you can run wires around the ship to power each component of it. Unity even makes multiplayer of all things a simple affair. It is the perfect combination of a 3D Map Editor AND the actual power of real code (either JavaScript or C#). It has an large and active community due to the current iPhone game rush. It is quite simply the closest equivalent to Construct that there is in three dimensions, and I love it. It's like Construct and Ogre had a love child.

    That said, I will probably still do a dungeon plugin for Construct at some point, because I said I would, but it'll be on a slower timescale since I can only do so much. We're getting hammered at work cause of the upcoming holidays and I am spending most of my off-time splooging over Unity, because it is that awesome.

    If development on the plugin becomes so problematic that it starts taking a very long time, there is a premade library designed for roguelike games that I can quickly port into Construct for you guys, but first I would like to try and finish the algorithm I'm already working on. Meanwhile, yeah you guys can move this thread to the release forum, and I can mirror the plugin somewhere else if you want.

  • Just make a new thread in the Completed Addons section

  • I've downloaded the plugin and started to playing with it and THIS happend

    It's very slow so I don't think there is any use for that. I have one problem, when a map gets generated I have white horizontal and vertical lines on my screen. I think it's a driver problem, but can you guys confirm it? I've tested it on 3 computers and 2 have lines.

    Im actually doing something like that in my current project, so I can tell you I get the artifacts when I use canvas's "draw point".

    My workaround is "draw line".

    current x, current y, current x+1, current y+1

    That's a lot of currents...., but it works.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads

    Ok, will try.

  • Hi, i know this is from 2011 but i have a question about that. If I have amplitude 4, values will be -4 to 4. But when i test, i always have -2 to 2 (something like that).

    What is wrong ? Thx.

  • This version of the Noise plugin is no longer supported. I released a new, more powerful version of Noise about a year ago in a thread titled Noise 2.0.

    I'm not sure why your noise amplitude is off, though, since this plugin is so old I barely remember how I implemented certain things. Apologies.
