Basic Random Tile Map Generation

by codelyoko373   Last Updated May 02, 2018 05:13 AM

Currently I've got a map like this: enter image description here

It's pretty simple but what I want is that area of tiles to be random, with the number of tiles present being random (Within a minimum and maximum amount of tiles of course) and the positions of the tiles being random (but still all connected to each other), but I'm not exactly sure how I should go about implementing that.

I'm sort of looking for a system that will generate random sections of tiles, a bunch of tiles within a group at random positions around the screen with all these sections being connected to each other via a larger section of tiles. Like the example shown in this perfect drawing I've quickly done: enter image description here

Each square would be a group of tiles, they're all of different shapes and sizes but all connected together via another large (or small) group of tiles in the middle.

I have looked into grid map generation before making this post but all the information I found would tend to go over more advanced map generation methods that have multiple layers which is not really what I need for my game so I was wondering if someone would possibly be able to advice me on what the best method would be to do this?

I'd very much appreciate it.
