This class uses the cellular automata algorithm to generate very sexy caves. (Coded by Eddie Lee, October 16, 2010)

Static methods

staticconvertMatrixToString(Matrix:Array<Array<Int>>):String

Convert a matrix generated via generateCaveMatrix() into data that is usable by FlxTilemap.

Parameters:

Matrix

A matrix of data

Returns:

A string that is usuable for FlxTilemap.loadMap()

@:value({ WallRatio : 0.5, SmoothingIterations : 6 })staticgenerateCaveMatrix(Columns:Int, Rows:Int, SmoothingIterations:Int = 6, WallRatio:Float = 0.5):Array<Array<Int>>

Generate the matrix (2-dimensional array of Ints) for a cave.

Parameters:

Columns

Number of columns for the matrix

Rows

Number of rows for the matrix

SmoothingIterations

How many times do you want to "smooth" the caev - the higher the smoother, but slower

WallRatio

Chance for a tile to become a wall - the closer the value is to 1.0, the more walls there are

Returns:

Returns a matrix of a cave!

@:value({ WallRatio : 0.5, SmoothingIterations : 6 })staticinlinegenerateCaveString(Columns:Int, Rows:Int, SmoothingIterations:Int = 6, WallRatio:Float = 0.5):String

Generates a new cave matrix via generateCaveMatrix() and returns it in a format usable by FlxTilemap.load() via convertMatrixToString().

Parameters:

Columns

Number of columns for the matrix

Rows

Number of rows for the matrix

SmoothingIterations

How many times do you want to "smooth" the caev - the higher the smoother, but slower

WallRatio

Chance for a tile to become a wall - the closer the value is to 1.0, the more walls there are

Returns:

A cave string that is usable by FlxTilemap.loadMap()
