Co-creating game content using an adaptive model of user taste
Antonios Liapis, Georgios N. Yannakakis and Julian Togelius: Co-creating game content using an adaptive model of user taste. In: Computational Creativity 2012 ICCC 2012.
Mixed-initiative procedural content generation can aug- ment and assist human creativity by allowing the algorithm to take care of the mechanisable parts of content creation, such as consistency and playability checking. But it can also enhance human creativity by suggesting new directions and structures, which the designer can choose to adopt or not.
The proposed framework generates spaceship hulls and their weapon and thruster topologies in order to match a user’s visual taste as well as conform to a number of constraints aimed for playability and game balance. The 2D shapes representing the spaceship hulls are encoded as pattern-producing networks (CPPNs) and evolved in two populations using the feasible-infeasible 2-population approach (FI-2pop). ...
