    Post Gimp Plugin: A better lazy man's city?

    Inspired by the mosaic city building stuff (torstan's tute here, e.g.), I made a script to do the same, but working with something that resembles Voronoi patterns. My understanding of the concept may be lacking, but I've found that radial gradients placed against eachother using lighten only will make for some nice straightish lines when you edge detect it.

    To use, make a b/w map of your streets (streets black, house areas white), then make a selection of the areas you want to populate with houses and activate the plugin (under Filters|Map tools|Generate city)

    I've attached an example where I've made a couple of different areas with different sized buildings and colors.

    Comments and ideas are welcome. I've considered making a setting for increasing the distance between houses.

    Edit: I added the setting for distance between houses.
