    Abstract

    This paper presents a method for generating floor plans for structures in Minecraft (Mojang 2009). Given a 3D space, it will autogenerate a building to fill that space using a combination of constrained growth and cellular automata. The result is a series of organic-looking buildings complete with rooms, windows, and doors connecting them. The method is applied to the Generative Design in Minecraft (GDMC) competition [24] to auto-generate buildings in Minecraft, and the results are discussed.
