|Company Name(s):||The Guildhall at SMU|
|Track / Format:||Programming|
|Overview:||The afternoon of this PCG math tutorial kicks off with a simple but powerful trick useful in most procedural generation situations. By pre-generating massive amounts of content offline, vetting and evaluating its outcome, then storing only its flyweight PCG "recipes" (generation inputs and post-generation metadata), this session will show you how to kill slay several common PCG demons in one blow: repetition, obscenity, ordering, contextualization, and validation.|
