Can this be done, random computer generated path made through a house. Is this kind of thing possible?


See image here.

The dots = a possible exit.

Enter the vampire house, find the head vampire and kill him, but take care, you must leave before nightfall, that's when the vampires will be at their full strength and they will be too powerful for you.

The game starts as a grid, perhaps it is completely black and only the rooms you have been to are shown, here I have done it as with the grid shown, player starts at start area at the base of the house, the computer works out all the squares, squares = rooms, rooms have 4 possible exits, that's possible exits, some will have one exit some 2, and so on, the computer randomly assigns what exits the rooms have, the computer will also generate a goal room, this is where the head vampire is, he will be on the top floor, reach his lair and kill him and try and make it out before sundown, the computer must select a route to him, one within so many squares, here it is 37, in fact we could have it as a route both in and out within so many moves, say the computer calculates a route in and out within say 60 moves, the computer calculates a route for this, by that I mean the exits on the rooms to make a path in and out, so each game is different, as the computer makes a different route every game.

So the question is, computer making the map, it randomly does this, but it must make it possible to reach the head vampire and get out by so many turns or paths, say within a certain number of these, could be a single number or perhaps within so many, so it may be between so many turns or paths.

I guess that's exactly what the Pathfinding Object is for.

Is it the random maze generation that's giving you problems, or the path? I don't quite understand the problem...

For a randomly-generated maze, I'm sure there's a lot of great algorithms out there you can use... but I don't know of any.

One thing I had tried once, though, is a little two-part deal. First, any room that was not currently accessable from the starting point would choose one of its walls at random and turn it into a door. Second, the start point would trace how many rooms were accessable and flag them as such. It'd then continue doing those two steps until every single room was accessable.

I could give you an example of what I mean if you don't mind the fact that it's five years old.

Pathfinding Object can generate random mazes. Shut up, KK?
