Procedural Galaxy

Recommended Posts

I did a develop and made dis, a procedural galaxy that, well... gets procedurally generated. You can use your mouse to zoom in/out and look around. You can click on stars to get their specific information. It's inspired by the galaxy maps found in games like Elite Dangerous and Eve Online.

Basicly I've made Templates and Fields for Spectral Classes and Subclasses, and looked up online what a realistic distribution scheme would be for these. This data is grouped under a page that renders then as JSON for the Javascript application to work with. I wrote that app in AngularJS, so I could add more controllers to it later. It also uses BabylonJS to calculate the number and position of stars and display them on screen, and assigns each a Spectral Class and Subclass after some shuffling of the dataset. Using a secondary controller only used in a ProcessModule for the CMS, I can broadcast events that redo the procedure using different variables (see screenshot below).

No particular purpose, just thought I'd share a cool side project that rolled out of my exploration of these JS frameworks in conjunction with PW.
