Brief Description

Noise generator based on Open Simplex.

Description

This resource allows you to configure and sample a fractal noise space. Here is a brief usage example that configures an OpenSimplexNoise and gets samples at various positions and dimensions:

var noise = OpenSimplexNoise.new()

# Configure
noise.seed = randi()
noise.octaves = 4
noise.period = 20.0
noise.persistence = 0.8

# Sample
print("Values:")
print(noise.get_noise_2d(1.0, 1.0))
print(noise.get_noise_3d(0.5, 3.0, 15.0))
print(noise.get_noise_4d(0.5, 1.9, 4.7, 0.0))

Property Descriptions

Setter set_lacunarity(value)
Getter get_lacunarity()

Difference in period between octaves.

Setter set_octaves(value)
Getter get_octaves()

Number of OpenSimplex noise layers that are sampled to get the fractal noise.

Setter set_period(value)
Getter get_period()

Period of the base octave. A lower period results in a higher-frequency noise (more value changes across the same distance).

Setter set_persistence(value)
Getter get_persistence()

Contribution factor of the different octaves. A persistence value of 1 means all the octaves have the same contribution, a value of 0.5 means each octave contributes half as much as the previous one.

Setter set_seed(value)
Getter get_seed()

Seed used to generate random values, different seeds will generate different noise maps.

Method Descriptions

Generate a noise image with the requested width and height, based on the current noise parameters.

Returns the 2D noise value [-1,1] at the given position.

Returns the 2D noise value [-1,1] at the given position.

Returns the 3D noise value [-1,1] at the given position.

Returns the 3D noise value [-1,1] at the given position.

Returns the 4D noise value [-1,1] at the given position.

Generate a tileable noise image, based on the current noise parameters. Generated seamless images are always square (size x size).
