Wave Function Collapse Algorithm

25th September 2020

I think it was last year that I learned about the Wave Function Collapse algorithm. It is rather new. Only a few years ago it was created.

What it does is create levels from pieces of levels.*snip*

Starting with higher resolution pixelart(faces)

2nd June 2020

I had the idea I would try to avoid pixeling larger pixelart until I got better. But I now attempted to do 32x32px faces.
For now it seems it takes me about 30 minutes per face at this size. I stil have no clue as how to do shading.
I hope*snip*
