PlayMyCode: Tiled Procedural Caves/Maps

A few months ago I was playing around with procedural cave generation and came across an idea by Noel Berry that used the concept of "miners" to create the map. I knocked up a prototype using PlayMyCode which produced the following:



Obviously, the above is pretty ugly and needs to be tiled to look more like a map. The usual approach is to use a shedload of nested if/else statements, but last night I came across this incredible idea:

www.saltgames.com/2010/a-bitwise-method-for-applying-tilemaps/

so I applied it (very quickly I might add) to the above map generator and ended up with:



(Use the arrow keys to move the map around and hold down shift and press up or down to scale it)

The tiling code is ridiculously short and simple - amazing

The source code is available on PMC.
