3D Plate Tectonics in Python


PyTectonics is a 3d plate tectonics simulator written in Python to provide realistic terrain generation for enthusiast world builders.

PyTectonics is a principled model. It aims to use simple yet scientifically defensible models that may be easily understood by nonexperts and modified by developers. A 3D framework is used to provide a solid foundation for modeling that is grounded in reality. Python is used to allow access from a wider audience of developers.
