implementation of ROT.JS (Roguelike Toolkit) for C3Runtime
basic usage of the rot.js plugin
Would it be possible to assign a room index number when generating a Cellular Automata. I'd like to figure out each little group of cells, are together and ideally how many are in that group.
I don't think that's supported by rot.js, but I'll do a bit of research and figure it out should not be 2 hard to implement, you pretty much just want groups of floor cells that are not connected and then you want to assign a room id to them and iterate their cells by roomid and stuff. I'll look into it
Thank you piranha! When using the cellular automata it creats nice little patches like spots on a cheetah. I'd like to be able to group those together into a room index or something so that i can manipulate all of them at once. eg: if player is overlapping roomindex = 1.
It's "rogue". "Rouge" means "red" :)
Its a common mistake. I think everyone should be playing rouge-likes, after all, there is lots of blood, right?
Okay fixed, also in the next release I'll fix the the spelling in some of the descriptions.
Lmao awesome... Man i hope i did not use that typo throughout the whole plugin...
You dont use variadic parameters do you?
No i created separate actions, to account for the multiple overloads that rot.js has, That's why you should see some generation actions with Simple or Advanced, the advance action is the same just with extra params. if there is a particular signature your need let me know and i can add it pretty quickly.
Thanks again for this great plugin, i can't wait for pathfinding and fov, if you still planning on supporting them?
Nice work! How do I save the generated mazes for use in loading a game later? I hope to see this grow, as it will help me in my current project, for sure!
I haven't looked at the plugin, but generally, with randomly-generated maps, you can remember the seed that the map was generated from. If you use the same seed later, you get the same map.
That's on the road map, I will work on this this week. When I have a chance. Would you like to save it the maps as json?
Whatever is the easiest way to implement would be fine with me. Just the random maps thing by itself was giving me fits to do, so hopefully this will do the trick.
Great! Thank you!
