      > Random city, dungeon or landscape generation.

      I've been looking at Jamis Buck's Dungeon
      (http://www.aarg.net/~minam/dungeon.cgi) generator and thinking what a great
      start.. now if I could only think of a way to change the gif/bmp generator
      into something that generates cc2 commands....

      A random city/dungeon generator has the advantage that there are lots of
      tasks to do - creatin random algorithms, creating random "pieces" if we use
      the original DOS approach.
