This is a self building structure which manage its development autonomously.
Every time it's activated it will generate a different layout.
Said layouts are pseudo-randomic fractal-like mazes and may be easy to get lost in them, be careful!

The Clock Room

In the center under the floor there is a simple low-frequency hopper clock with a double pulser,
it's super-compact and adjustable.
When it's active it sends pulses through the whole structure and the extremities of the facility grow other modules.
It's the heart of the structure!

The Randomizers

The 4 rooms horizontally adjacent to the clock are the randomizers.
These rooms choose which modules will grow at the far end of the structure.

All The Others

Other modules contain rooms and corridors which will be part of the structure.
m- module, connection corridor
r- room with specific purpose
s- stair, unit of vertical connection

Instructions

►Turn on the clock with the 2 levers.
►Wait around 1min while the facility grows.
►Turn clock off & wait that pulses are extinguished. (no lag)
►Explore! ☻

Future Objectives

■Iteration counter
■Modules for expansion in up direction (stairs)
■Module variety expansion
■Evaluation of semi-autonomous sub-structures (pits, large corridors, surfaces)
■Optimization (model changes, subrandomizers, ecc...)

Can I use the redstone from this map to make a map of the BackRooms?

What are the BackRooms?
Anyway, if you try I'm curious to see the result!

The structures glitched out when i put them in a new world so all the hard work i did to make each block look like the backrooms was erased so i decided maybe procedural generation isnt for me

Hello, I really enjoy your work, please may you make a machine that makes a mega-structure, sort of like this but hollows, windowed sections of wall, pipes, apartment rooms, ceilings overhead, staircases, bridges etc.... like the manga BLAME!

Sorry for the delay in replying!
I love Blame! too! But it's difficult to make something like the megastructure, it's so irregular varied! XD
Anyway, if I will finda way, I'll absolutely do it!

Could it be possible to use These to make a procedualy generated dungeon? This map i made is entirely made with structure blocks so you could use the structures to make a dungeon with procedual generation.

I don't know how you standardized the shapes of your structures, but what you ask is surely feasible!
I would know how to made an infinite dungeon, or even how to limit its size with fixed entrance end goal positions :)

Also some of them are double high to make ways to go up and down and secret passages

i found a glitch where the top of the stairs get overwritten by a different room so you cannot acess different floors

Grazie mille billoxiiboy! Scusa se ti rispondo solo ora :-/
Sono felice che apprezzi i miei moduli auto-assemblanti :-D
Il lavoro non è ancora concluso, ho appena pubblicato un progetto inerente a questo, e ci saranno anche sviluppi interessanti in futuro...
Grazie ancora! ;-)

Ciao Gheppio, scusa, il mio italiano non è buono. I had to learn it when I first started working in Italian restaurants, as the Mummas in the Kitchen usually couldn't speak English. Trouble was, the Mummas in the kitchen were usually from El Salvador. So my Italian sounds more like Esperanto. World Distruction looks amazing. I can't wait to see where you take this tech!

Ciao

It works in 1.12+ because structure blocks are needed,
I'm actually working on some interesting expansions of the project at the moment, news will arrive soon :-)

It works pretty amazing. I tested it and I am surprised how everything is connected flawless, except for some ends.

Excellent done & long time no see around here!

Hi eagoy!
Thanks as always for your interest in my work!
You are right, my last update is from 3 years ago! I had to drop mc for some time because of university... anyway it's good to be back!

The project will be expanded and optimized (if possible) in the future updates, anyway this is only a model, this universal modules can be used for any structure you may think of (eg medieval dungeons etc), and they are quite easy to reprogram too.

PS Have you tried also the Reset Unit? I'll put more focus on it in the future, just paste "r0000_del" with structure block over an existing module of an existing structure (no matter how big it is) and the whole facility will be erased from existance! See last image in the gallery for example :-D

My pleasure & can I assume things went well in university?

Redstone is an old thing of mine, the good ol wired only stuff though. This programming stuff is pretty amazing but definitely not my thing. Still an impressive build to come back with here on PMC.

Nope, basic everything that is not easily done in creative with rare code (bb code and such) is not my thing. Nonetheless effective function.

Yes, quite well, but it's still not over, I'm at the last year now (mechanical engineering)

Thanks again!
In the next update I'll put a demonstrative area for the Reset Unit so that It'll be easy for everyone to see it in action.

Mechanical engineering as in calculating forces on constructions such as bridges or buildings?

I look forward to that.

Seriously? That's great!
Yes that's it, I had exams on internal actions, bending and torsional moments, study of vibrations, resonance, finite element method also an exam specific on structural calculation.
But it's not only that, there are also a lot of other subjects like turbines, veichles, etc...
I'm going to specialize in mechatronics and robotics :-)

More than you might think!
If you also consider that I have really little free time :-/
I started working on this project before summer, and updates will come in the future.
Thank you so much for your appreciation!
