"Doing a quick google search"

Fortunes's algorithm:

Code: Select all

```
let *(z) be the transformation *(z)=(z_x,z_y+d(z)),
where d(z) is the Euclidean distance between z and the nearest site
let T be the "beach line"
let R_p be the region covered by site p.
let C_{pq} be the boundary ray between sites p and q.
let p_1,p_2,...,p_m be the sites with minimal y-coordinate, ordered by x-coordinate
Q \gets S - {p_1,p_2,...,p_m}
create initial vertical boundary rays C_{p_1,p_2}^0,C_{p_2,p_3}^0,...C_{p_{m-1},p_m}^0
T \gets *(R_{p_1}),C_{p_1,p_2}^0,*(R_{p_2}),C_{p_2,p_3}^0,...,*(R_{p_{m-1}}),C_{p_{m-1},p_m}^0,*(R_{p_m})
while not IsEmpty(Q) do
p ← DeleteMin(Q)
case p of
p is a site in *(V):
find the occurrence of a region *(R_q) in T containing p,
bracketed by C_{rq} on the left and C_{qs} on the right
create new boundary rays C_{pq}^- and C_{pq}^+ with bases p
replace *(R_q) with *(R_q),C_{pq}^-,*(R_p),C_{pq}^+,*(R_q) in T
delete from Q any intersection between C_{rq} and C_{qs}
insert into Q any intersection between C_{rq} and C_{pq}^-
insert into Q any intersection between C_{pq}^+ and C_{qs}
p is a Voronoi vertex in *(V):
let p be the intersection of C_{qr} on the left and C_{rs} on the right
let C_{uq} be the left neighbor of C_{qr} and
let C_{sv} be the right neighbor of C_{rs} in T
create a new boundary ray C_{qs}^0 if q_y = s_y,
or create C_{qs}^+ if p is right of the higher of q and s,
otherwise create C_{qs}^-
replace C_{qr},*(R_r),C_{rs} with newly created C_{qs} in T
delete from Q any intersection between C_{uq} and C_{qr}
delete from Q any intersection between C_{rs} and C_{sv}
insert into Q any intersection between C_{uq} and C_{qs}
insert into Q any intersection between C_{qs} and C_{sv}
record p as the summit of C_{qr} and C_{rs} and the base of C_{qs}
output the boundary segments C_{qr} and C_{rs}
endcase
endwhile
output the remaining boundary rays in T
```

May need to read up on it a bit further... or maybe I can just find a way to harness the awesome power of slime mold

Having both cobblestone and dirt roads is part of the plan, but dirt roads will probably be added later. When working on the editor I also thought about rivers, and is definitely something that can be added using the same method. I plan to look into it after I finished the road part.

I like your idea ifkopifko, having sections of more dense forests and clearings would be really nice. The editor that I made could definitely be re purposed to be able to create a new type of landscape map that can be used to determine billboard placement.

For now, I plan is to add the roads manually using the editor, but try to make the process as easy as possible. And if any step of the process can be automated, it will.

And thank your for your help Interkarma.
