Some more experimentation with this technique. This time I used a dimpled gradient to place houses tighter the farther from the walls I get. I think with a little more work, I can get something at least somewhat useful.
Is this the right place for these experiments, btw? I'd like to write up an explanation of what I'm doing, and then get suggestions on improving the method, I suppose
Or someone should just tell me to stop it and move on if it's an entire waste of time.
