Traffic 3.2 - Improving Random Building Placement

Supervising Assistant:
Michela Pedroni


The motivation of this project is to improve random building placement in Traffic 3.1. Although a randomly generated city looks quite convincing on first glance, when looking at it closely, there are a few things which need improvement. The main drawbacks are the following:

  • Some buildings overlap with roads and railways
  • The algorithms used don't place enough buildings to fill the city
  • The algorithms used take a long time, their termination has to be ensured

This project adresses the three points listed above. This will be done by writing a new placement algorithm with the ultimate goal of making the city look more realistic.
