Ginnungagap is a code for generating cosmological initial conditions. It is aimed at high scalability and ease of use. The main code will generate the velocity field at the requested starting redshift, which is then used by extra tools to generate a particle representation. In this talk the features of the code will be presented with the emphasis on the methods of rescaling of the initial conditions to higher resolution while preserving the same large scale structure.
