You just saved me hours. This is absolutely perfect for my game.

EDIT: You probably saved me days. Which is to say I would've settled for less eventually but instead I got something fantastic in 15 seconds.

(+1)

I think you changed the course of my entire life.

(+1)

Wow, that went very quickly from being helpful to changing your life haha.

Glad you enjoy, hope you make something nice with it!

(+1)

Hey, Can I use this for Animation? (I'll give credit)

Yep, that's fine!

(+1)

Thank you sir :D

(+2)

Any chance you could make an AppImage version for us linux users?

Hmm, not familiar with AppImage. I don't see a way to do that from godot directly, it might be possible but would have to look into it.

I know that the program Node Wizardry here on Itch uses Godot and uses an AppImage for Linux users

Hello, this is really nice tool. I have an idea for a space game and I was looking for something like this. I Hope you don't mind if I use it to create few backgrounds.

Hey, yes go ahead, that's what I made it for. Looking forward to see what you can make with it!

(+2)

Hi (sorry for my English, I'm Russian. And yes, please don't annoy me, I'm not to blame for the war), can I use your planet generator and backgrounds in my game? Of course I will point the link to your page at itch.io , and just your nickname.

Yeah feel free to use them in your game. And the credit is appreciated!

Hey, question about your assets in general, cause i saw "Do not distribute any images generated on their own, or in an asset pack." I made a plugin in PGMMV and i am working on a sample project to show a demo of my plugin. i want to use your assets, but im not sure if you allow that since i share the whole project so people can see how i implemented the plugin. basicaly the users will have access to the assets i've generated. wanted to check with you first if i can used them or if i should find something else... thanks!

Hey, yes that is fine with me and you can include them.

I just dont want people to distribute the generated images in packs with nothing else included or little effort put into it. 

Thanks for asking!

(+1)

Made my day! Thanks a lot and keep up the good work!

Awesome! :)

(+1)

It produces beautiful results. Thanks for this amazing tool!

(+1)

You're welcome, glad you like them!

(+1)

Gran trabajo amigo!! Muchas gracias!

De nada! Me alegro de que te guste!

(I don't speak Spanish so hope translation is correct)

(+1)

Hey !

Really nice job , visual are super nice and the tool is really simple ! Gave me a lot of inspiration for my own project. 

Thanks a lot for sharing the code ! 

Thanks and glad you like it!
You're welcome, hope the code is useful!

Hi Deep-Fold! 

I'm using your algorithm to create an animation of each layer of the background. The result is pretty good, I'm also looking a way to mix layers with different speeds. But I have a question for you: Can I have my own MIT license for my code? The code is completely different (ported to unity and modified), even though the algorithm is almost the same. Generally I don't care much about this, but in the project I'm working on I have to own every piece of code. Awesome generator btw. Thanks in advance!

(+1)

Hey!
That sounds awesome! If it's all your own code license it as you wish, I don't own the algorithms or anything.
Glad you like the generator!

Thank you for the info! I'll credit you if I'm allowed!

Hi Lenda,

Any plans of releasing the Unity version of the algorithm? I would love to have some animation and random generation happening in game for my Unity game, but I don't know enough about shaders and Godot to port it :(

You ported to Unity. Would love to see that. Mind Sharing?

(+1)

This is awesome! I'm gonna try and use this for a title screen in my metroidvania! And maybe sweet background tiles as well, if I can figure out how. 

(+1)

This is stunning. Great work! Only issue I can see is it doesn't seem like it tiles vertically

Glad you like it! Yeah for now the tiling only works properly if the aspect ratio between height & width is an integer. So like 200x400, 200x600, 300x100, etc.
To fix that I would have to use another tiling method, but haven't found that yet.

(+1)

Tiling also turns off some things, I suppose this is intentional because they don't support it?

I don't really remember how I programmed it, but I don't think tiling disables anything. Can you give an example of what gets disabled?

(+1)

Weird, it doesn't happen any more to me. I think the first time I used it it disabled Dust every time I turned tiling off. Go figure. Thanks anyway, sorry for the false alarm!

Interesting, must have just been some bad luck I guess.

For some reason the download version won't export the photo..

Thanks for letting me know, what OS are you using?

Windows 10

Hmm, I'm on windows 10 and latest build works fine for me. The export should be in the same folder as the program. Can't really help more than that.

(+1)

Mind blown. This is amazing. It will take the look of my game to the next level. Thanks so much!!!

Glad you like it! Hope it works well in your game.

(+1)

This and the planet generator are so cool!

Thanks! Glad you like em!

(+1)

Hi this generator is amazing, but could you make it vertically tiled as well? Thank you so much, again its really amazing!

Hi glad you like it! It should be vertically tiled already, but maybe it's broken. Could you show an example or something of a broken tile?

(1 edit)

However, maybe it's just this one, I'm not sure.

Ok thanks for the example, I'll try and fix it.

(+1)

awesome!!thx:)

you're welcome!

Hey dude, this was the best bg generator I ever used... U have done such a nice job... Like no kidding am so obsessed with it now.. just AWESOME... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...🔥
I used it HERE ... I will be happy if u go to the credits scene of the game and check it out... 💖
Click on ur name to check ur links... 😋

A solid 5-star rating 😁

If u have any discord server , yt channel or something... Please lemme know... I would love to see more from u ✨

I don't really have that, I do have a twitter where I very occasionally post something extra: https://twitter.com/Deep_Fold

(+1)

Thank you, glad you like my stuff!

Nice job on the game and thanks for the credits!

(+2)

Thanks for this generator, I use it in my first game SandbagMaster in the menu and level, and I think it looks very cool 

THANK YOU!

Awesome! thanks for the credits. Nice job on the game!

(+2)

Very usefull, thanks!

nice, glad you like it!

(+2)

This tool is so freakin amazing I used it for my game - Moon Spirit by Cryodawn

Thank you

Glad you like it, you made a very pretty game with it!

It wouldn't look half that pretty without your tool haha. Thanks again. You're awesome!

(1 edit) (+1)

does it create all sprites on different layers? so I could animate each element? or does it produce an image with everything on the same layer? it's pretty cool not gonna lie (Edit: just saw there is source code so i could modify it to do that if it can't)

In the source all sprites are generated on different layers. But you can also export each layer individually by only selecting that layer in this tool and selecting transparency. Glad you like it!

(+1)

I exported and image from this website, but half the image is white? Why?

Hmm, not sure. Is it something you can replicate? If so I'd like to know how. Thanks!

(1 edit) (+1)

Yes, it can be replicated. I'm on a Mac with Chrome as my browser fyi. I just inputted 320x180 pixel size for my image and hit export. Half the picture is white. The other half has the space background image. Is it because it only does 200x200 tiles?

(1 edit)

Alright thanks! It should work with other sizes than 200x200. Uploaded a new version that hopefully fixes it. If it doesn't work feel free to let me know.

It works! Thanks for fixing it!

Really amazing generator, I updated my game to using some generations as background. The game is Time Tangled

Oh nice! Glad you like it!

Simply incredible, great job!

A suggestion: separate "new image" buttons for each layer (stars, nebula...) for regenerate just that layer, while keeping the rest.

Thanks!
You mean randomizing a single layer? I guess that's possible, but I think it wouldn't look very intuitive in the generator. You could also save the layers you want with transparency, and then use whatever image editing program to merge them on top of each other.

Great generator, retro style is nice. Like to see unique pixel art background.

Thanks, glad you like it!

I just used this in a game jam game called Eye of Doooom

I'm learning Unity and doing some courses on Udemy at the moment. Thanks for these beautiful assets. I'm gonna use them for my learning progress. 

Cheers

Nice! Good luck with your courses.

This is one of the coolest things i have seem. Literally epic gaming

😎 thanks!

esta increíble este generador de fondos. muchas gracias

Thank you! Happy you like it!

This generator is awesome. I'm making a game for  "A Jam About Time". Your generator's results made me switch my game's aesthetics :)

As an aside: would it be possible to include layers? This would be useful for creating parallax effects. The bulky stuff (nebulas, dust etc) can remain in a 'background' layer while stars can be added in 1-3 additional layers.

Hey, glad you like it!

It should already be possible to toggle stars, dust nebulae and planet layers. Or do you mean with transparency per layer?

(3 edits)

Yes. I meant transparency per layer. That way we can have multiple ParallaxLayers in Godot. This would give really nice effects on  scrolling.

I modified your code as an experiment. You can view the results in this video. The video may stutter the first time you play it.

Here's how I got multiple layers:

  1. I added another Particles2D node with the same properties and split the particle amount in 80:20 ratio between them. This gave me two Particles2D nodes which together gave the same result as earlier.
  2. Instead of capturing screen once, I captured the screen 3 times:
    1. For the 1st capture, I hid both the Particles2D nodes
    2. For the 2nd capture, I hid everything except the Particles2D with more stars
    3. For the 3rd capture, I hid everything except the Particles2D with less stars.
  3. I removed the background color in the 2nd and 3rd captures in a photo editing tool to add transparency.

Looks awesome with the parallax! I posted a little update so you should be able to use transparency and the layers individually. Hope you enjoy!

That was quick! Thanks for the prompt change!

Hey!

I love your pixel generators!. I used this one on a game we made for the godot wild jam #34. You are actually my saviour! we had no artist so this one was the perfect solution haha. So anyway, thank's a lot!

If you want to check out our little game here it is: https://idontkillcoyotes.itch.io/we-trust-you

Nice! Glad you like my generators!

Thanks for the link, I'll give the game a try.

(1 edit)

this is absolutely amazing. Really great work. I'm strongly considering using some of these generated backgrounds for our game Barnard's Star: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1217500/Barnards_Star/

I'll be sure to give credit if we end up doing that!

Anyways, I'm just super impressed. Great that you include source too -- I'll probably take a look at some point to see how the magic happens.

I also saw one of your posts on Reddit detailing the process of generating procedural pixel art planets. Incredible stuff. Keep up the great work!

Thank you! Your game looks awesome. I think there is already some good art in your game, but it would be really cool to see the backgrounds in there.

If you're gonna dive into the source then be ready for some shader magic :)

Glad you like it, I'll try and keep up the work!

I was wondering if you could allow it to export as a widescreen image? I'd like to be able to modify the X and Y dimensions. I plan on making backgrounds for player handouts with it.

Hey, yes should be possible to implement that, but can't promise that it will be done soon. In the meantime you could also try cropping the rectangle to your desired dimensions with some image editor.

Also that's a really cool application for this program!

(+1)

I wish I could, the only problem with that is it has the height I need, it's the width. This is what I made with your programs, as well as many of the other free resources I found on Itch.io. So The dataslate is finished. I posted a link to this as well as the psd project file in 40RPG on Reddit, if you read reddit.

(+1)

Hey, I uploaded a little update that should allow you to set the sizes individually now. Let me know if that works for you.

It's PERFECT! Thank you.

Great!

thank you, this tool is great. many thanks.

You're welcome, glad you like it!

Thank you!

Is this seamless aswell?

(+1)

Not yet, should be coming at some point though.

amazing!

(+1)

ok, updated. If you enable tiling it should be seamless now.

Awesome as usual! But i wonder... when i use the generator above and click "New Image" then it generates some artifacts, for instance a straight horizontal line in the middle. Seems to be a little buggy there.

Also, could the generator create tileable backgrounds and non square backgrounds? Also what are its limits?

Finally something a little less fancy, more blackness, emptiness and just stars would be welcome as well. These backgrounds are a little too much, for my taste. But I see a lot of potential here. I'm looking for somewhat that will go well with your Pixel Planets, for a mini space game.

Maybe i shall have a look at the generator code, to see if i can understand that.

I did look shortly into the shader code of the planets, and it was not as complicated as i imagined, though still beyond my abilities.

Well, if you keep this up, i might have to throw some money at you again.

Thanks!

The artifacts seem to be caused by something that happens when exporting to the web. Seems to not happen on the exe at least. I'll try and find a fix to that.

Tiling is probably possible, so should be coming at some point.

For the blackness, you could disable the dust or nebulae layers. Or do you just mean toning those down a bit? I agree that it sometimes too much though.

Thanks for the suggestions! And glad you like this one also!

Hi, I uploaded a new version that has some of your suggestions. Hope you like it.

Hey i just saw it - awesome. I will look into it as soon as possible. :)

This is great. Thanks so much. I gave you what i can spare at the moment.

If my game gets along (that is hopefully i don't abandon it too soon) and i can really make use of these textures, i'll remember to send you a bit more when i can (because it's not going to be anything that makes money).

Proper credits will be given in any case, obviously.

I really appreciate the support! But please don't feel like you have to give me something for it though, feel free to use the assets for free.

I'm interested in what your game might be, looking forward to it!

The King has returned!
All hail the King!

(+2)

Haha thanks, some might say I was never gone. Glad you like this one also!

it's amazing, good work :3

thank you!
