Generating massive pre-made structures


Recommended Posts

I want to generate a structure which will be larger than a chunk, it will probably be so much larger that it crosses into several biomes!


So my question is, how can I do this and make sure it happens after all vanilla generations (caves, mine shafts etc.)?

If you guys dont get it.. then well ya.. try harder...

i dont actually know much but

1  can this be a decorator (depending on the order of generation. maybe alot of chunks are generated  then decorator runs on a lot chunk)

2 i have some experience on procedural generation

if you could make a "random" function that takes the coordinates and return the closest "structure starting point"  then generating the structure would be a piece of cake (or maybe 4-5 closest since these might overlap)


kindof how nether forteress are generated:)

@Hydro: yeah number 2. is a good idea if I call it after world gen is completed I guess I could do that. I just need to look for an event let me know it's done generating everything first :)


number 1 would work IF I could guarantee mine is the last decorator/generator to be executed.



@Endershadow: Yeah that I could do, but how can I make sure that it is the last generation to be run? So that nothing comes in later and changes the structure?



Does anyone know the order of these things, is it the last modd added which custom gen's generate last or something?

If you guys dont get it.. then well ya.. try harder...
