This is adorable, thank you so much!
I genuinely love that you made this with Godot. Great job! So cool to see it in GH and how you did the work.
This is laterally perfect for one of my projects! Thanks so much! What a great tool for being free. Big thanks for the author! One of the down sides of the new AI tools out there is that searching for the phrase 'image generator' will no longer show this tool in search results. I had to exclude the term "AI" from my search before I found this. I'm glad I kept looking. And 8 bit space background is hard to make by hand.
Great, glad you like it! Would love to see the game if you decide to use this.
Yeah sad that AI results are kind of flooding everything but at least you can filter em out.
This is an excellent tool. Thanks. Quick question. I wanted to make shader like this for Unity so I have can real time procedurally generates backgrounds. Do you have any tips or thoughts behind creating something like this? That would be very helpful
Thank you! I don't have any tips specifically for Unity, but the shader code should be pretty portable. These shaders are glsl, Unity uses hlsl, there are a lot of resources online saying how to convert between these. So if you convert to hlsl it should all work fine.
a very cool BG thanks
Oh, that looks very useful! I didn't really think it through too much when I just named every image "Space Background.png" haha.
Thanks for sharing and I hope it's useful to others as well!
Hi! How might I have it set up for it generating a different background each time the player spawns in? Also, do you have any youtube tutorials on the lagistics of this generator? tysm!
Well that depends on your own implementation of it. You could just have a bunch of different backgrounds and choose one randomly when the player spawns. No tutorials or anything like that unfortunately, but it should be pretty straightforward, just set the options how you want them and export.
Hey Pixel Picasso! 🌌🎨 Just wanted to drop a galactic-sized thank you for your space-tastic background generator. My game’s visuals are now soaring through the cosmos, all thanks to your pixel wizardry! Your name’s not just in the credits; it’s etched into the pixels of the universe. Keep on crafting those cosmic canvases! 🚀🖌️ #PixelPerfection #BackgroundBard
Hey, thank you very much for the message haha! Glad you enjoy the generator. Thanks for the credit and good luck on your game!
thanks for background in my profile
Hi. Thank you for this. I will use it for a Game Jam, and helps a lot to be faster, you will be in the credits.
Where do the exported images export to??
On Windows and Linux, it should be in the same folder the program is. On MacOS under "
This is insane!! Awesome work! I'm making backgrounds for my desktop and this is just what I needed!
This is fantastic. I may end up using this in my project, but I'm not sure yet. You will definitely get credit if I do. I only learned about your tools because a game I recently checked out ("Astrobrawl") credited you for this and your planet generator (which also may end up being useful for me).
Thank you for your hard work, and for making this freely available.
Ah, I just decided to buy it and throw it in. My artist friend may do backgrounds of his own in the future, but these are significantly better placeholders than the ones I've been using. And if it works out that way, I'll just keep them in. They look great. <3
BRO, I love you work
i used this to background image in my game
and also used pixel-planet for player sprite
Thanks for your work!
You can set proper metadata by following the next steps: "Edit game -> Metadata -> Release info -> License for code". Also you can add the link to the source code: "Edit game -> Metadata -> External links"
Thank you, didn't even know that existed lol.
Hello! I wanted to ask just in case if we can use this generator for assets in commercial game projects? Not nft of course haha. This would be really useful for making tiling parallax backgrounds for maps in my rpg.
Yes, feel free to use this in your commercial projects. Hope this works well for your backgrounds!
I think planets and stars can be made dynamic
Not sure what you mean? The planets should be random each time. As for the stars I drew some sprites by hand, I think the amount of variation in them is good the way it is currently.
For example, you can add some twinkling stars and allow the user to export a sequence of frames
Ah I see. I think the filesize would be way to big for some of the backgrounds though if you tried to export those as animations. I think a better solution would be to manually add some particles using whatever engine you're using.
How do you export the image?
Amazing! They even tile! Thank you so much.
The default export size limit does not meet my requirements. Can I modify the export size limit in the source code to export the image of bigger size I need?
Yeah feel free to edit the source. I think the limit might be set via one of Godot's UI settings, not sure.
This is absolutely phenomenal. I was not expecting to find such an amazing randomly generated pixel art maker. Very well done.
question! i was making a game but I'm too lazy to make the backgrounds myself so i wanted to use this? I'll credit you a million times over when it releases.
Yeah feel free to use this, would love to see your game when it's finished!
Shouldn't the title be "infinite infinite backgrounds"?
Hmm, but is infinite infinity not the same as a regular infinity?
Purchased with a little added. This is great, thank you. I'll be using it in a game coming soon.
Thank you very much! I hope it's useful in the game jam!
This is awesome thanks!
Hello, can i use it in projects? And what i need to write, like add you to credits, or something else?
Hey, yeah feel free to use it. If you want to give credit you could do that either in game or on your game page with a mention to this project. Thanks!
Thank you so much for making this resource! It worked wonderfully and is greatly appreciated!
Hey, i love this tool man thanks! But i noticed that the tile option works only along the shorter distance of the image. So, if my height is shorter than my width (say H: 1080 and W: 1920) it would only tile between the two height lines/levels because they are nearer to each other than the width lines/levels are.
Sry, if this is normal and i'm complaining about it 👀
Anyway, thanks so much again, cuz it has really helped me shape a game of mine. I'll post it after, in case you wanna check it out. 😊👍
Hey, glad you like it!
Yeah you're correct on the tiling not working in that case. I still have to figure that bug out sometime. Don't worry about complaining haha, glad to receive feedback! Also would love to see your game!
hey, first off awesome generator! I've used it a few times and it's been a great help with backgrounds.
Secondly, I've had the windows version for a little while, but for some reason hitting "export" wont save the image to the file the program is in anymore. Not sure why this is the case.
EDIT: moving the generator to an empty file and restarting it seemed to work.
Thirdly, I've tried using the web version, but you cant seem to be able to paste text into the color slots. You can, however, copy and paste colors from the website to the website. But you can't paste regular text into the site.
Hey, thanks! Glad it was helpful.
Not sure what the issue with the file saving is. I think it might overwrite the old file because it always saves with the same name, I should probably change that. I think the text pasting issue is due to the engine I'm using, I'll see if I can fix that.
Thanks for the feedback!
Very good tool, can I put the image resource into the generated background image by myself?
Thanks! I'm not really sure what you mean, can you explain what you mean by the image resource?
Any chance we could get a mac version?
Unfortunately not. I can't export macOS executables without owning a mac myself due to some requirements by apple.
How do you make this background generator?
Do you mean like how I made it? I made it in a game engine called Godot. I don't really have a tutorial for it, but it comes down to using shaders to generate something called "fractal brownian motion". Then with that generated noise pattern I do some tweaking and apply some color and you have a background. The stars are just some particles using hand drawn sprites.
Where do the pictures go ? I can't seem to find them...
In the browser version the pictures should appear wherever your browser puts it's downloaded files. On the Windows and Linux version the pictures should be in the same folder as the program. However they always export with the same name, so make sure you don't overwrite the old files.
This is amazing, thank you for releasing it as open source software!!!
Is there any chance you could make a linux version? Perhaps an AppImage?
Yeah of course, I just uploaded a Linux version. I can't upload an AppImage because I'm not sure how to export that from godot, but hope this works for you.
Was wondering if it would be ok for me to use this to make some static backgrounds for my twitch streams. would of course put you in the credits on my about page
