powerPlant is a geometry generator and editor.
Version: 1.1powerPlant is a geometry generator and editor. powerPlant is specially suitable to generate terrain and plant models. The geometry generation is based on custom implementations of L-Systems, Turtle-Interpretation and the Diamond-and-Square algorithm.
Operating System: Linux
powerPlant is composed of a Java application supplying the application logic and external Haskell programs for geometry generation.
The application is intended to create complex, realistic models by supplying a minimum ammount of parameters instead of explicit modelling. Created models can be combined recursively to make up complete scenes. This scene creation is presented in a WYSIWYG tree view. The integrated terrain tool can also be used to generate various coloured, tileable textures.
Every work result (models, scenes) can be loaded and saved in a xml file. User interaction takes place in a convenient Java Swing GUI that brings together all the aspects of the application.
The chosen approach should significantly shorten the process of creating adequate 3D-models and entire virtual landscapes with realtime visualization. Visualization is based on OpenGL/GLU API and includes adjustable speed optimizations.
