Short summary
Stochastic simulations are key tools to generate complex spatial structures uses as input in geoscientific models. In this paper, we present a new open-source tool that enables to simulate complex structures in a straightforward and efficient manner, based on analogues. The method is tested on a variety of use cases to demonstrate the generality of the framework.
