Dos Batch File to Generate Lots of Maps

Hiya, everyone.

I've written a short script to create several random maps so I can easily view them and pick which ones I like. The image size is set relatively small for quicker creation. Once I know which seed number I like I can then re-generate to the real image size I need.

Copy the following and save it as a text file with a .bat extension. It needs to be in the folder where you unpacked the Planet program and source code.


:: Generate lots of small maps Using the Offline Planet Generator created by Torben . Mogensen
:: (This batch file written by CorinaMarie@Simtropolis and is free to the public.)
::
:: Note: Height is set to 512 rather than 513 to avoid the top row white band.
::
:: The specific parameters are set for my own needs to make maps for SimCity 4.
::  Tweak as needed for your own requirements.
:: See http://www.diku.dk/hjemmesider/ansatte/torbenm/Planet/Manual.txt for switch parameters.
::
:: Adjust the value of MaxMaps for how many you want to generate. Currently set to 100.
:: Run time on my comp is 5 minutes, 25 seconds for 100 maps. Tested on Win 7 Pro.

@echo off & setLocal EnableDelayedExpansion

Set MaxMaps=100

for /L %%a in (1 1 %MaxMaps%) do (
Set /a Seed=!random!*65536+1
Echo !Seed!
Planet.Exe -X -pq -s 0.!Seed! -b -m 2.0 -g 22.5 -G 22.5 -C lefebvre2.col -w 513 -h 512 -o !Seed!Lefebvre2.bmp
)

And this is a follow up Batch File to create several versions of the same seed number. (Adjust that in the Set Seed= part for your desired map.)
