Post any cool stuff you made using procedurally generated techniques, or interesting ideas, questions, or links you found about it.

Check it out, even the Unreal engine is starting to use procedural asset creation (specifically, buildings): ... dings.pptx

Pretty neat!


(p.s if the file downloads as a .ZIP, rename it to .PPTX and MS PowerPoint should open it)

There are a bunch of websites about Minecraft's seed generation stuff, this was an interesting post on Notch's tumblr page

City Generator via Blender 3d

Procedural City: City screensaver

Pixcel City = Apple Mac port of the screensaver

Either you are a very good spambot, spamming links that are actually relevant... Or you're just a cool guy who likes making link-filled posts without previously posting more than once.

Either way, cool.

Altruistic spambots are a new one on me, I confess.

No spambot

Just found some interesting links regarding procedural generation
I have not yet examples of stuff made by these apps

need some practice with Context Free to make something original not just modifications of the examples
I'm more Mac oriented, I have not found many more programs in this type of procedural genre.

Regarding sound produced by some sort of procedural generation: there are a few which produce "sounds", not quite music, imho
It seems difficult to produce music via this way

Sonic Mood

Photosounder: not quit generative I think, but it's a special

Anyway: I think Subversion can be quite interesting to be used not only as a game
But also as some sort of City generator and then many possibilities !

I have posted this in the Subversion Development Suggestions Sticky

A few years ago, in graduate school at Texas A&M, I took a class about generative methods - kind of a superset of procedural generation. Check out my class website at It's all a bit old now, but it was fantastic fun.
