I was inspired by this generator and created a turtletoy that generates a compass https://turtletoy.net/turtle/5ef089d251
Compass Rose Generator
Hot keys (click the rose first to use them):
|Enter||generate a new rose|
|L||toggle NESW labels|
|M||invert arrows shading|
|S||toggle thin lines|
|P||download image as a 2560x2560 PNG file|
On touch devices tap the rose to generate a new one.
Art style and palettes:
|A||toggle drawing mode: |
|0||"lines only" palette|
You can upload custom palettes in the same way as described here.

really cool! can i use generated roses in my own projects?
hi ! it has nothing to do with similutor, how did you learn to make a rogue like ? :D I try to learn
Custom palettes don't seem to work for me... Is there any metadata attached?
Pressing F on web re-generates the whole compass instead of just removing the fleur, is this intended?
I love that I can use this on mobile! Can I get control buttons for mobile?
If I could download these images with transparent backgrounds I would use them in my games :D
Since the backgrounds are a single color, it shouldn't be too hard to just remove them with photoshop or gimp.
We can use them in our games? :O you ROCK buddy.
In fact, no.
Transparency is always progressive in decent png images (it takes a few pixels going from 255 to 0). And u can't correct that with any built in tool in photoshop etc...
It demands either some time (5 minutes mini for this kind of images) or some smart programming.
Also, the plan in using a "generator" is often to get many many version of it.
Consider adding even a SLIGHT LITTLE support for at least background transparency, because i get that supporting the other colors transparency is hard + kinda useless :
PLEASE support the " fill-opacity=" in the custom palettes, even only for background, again !
This don't look like a lot of work, and this would be amazing !
Anyway good work, to say the least, as i really love good artists making bright use of numeric strengths <3
I'll try to do it when I get back to this generator (although it's a bit harder than it probably seems). Meanwhile for me personally the easiest way to place a rose on a map it to switch to the a b/w palette and set the blending mode of the layer to "multiply" (or similar).
This is perfect for figuring out my sharingan design.
This is also very good I'm just ribbing
wow! excellent and nicely done watabou
Really cool. :)
Man, they are so beautiful.
I wish there was a way to save the Compass Rose you make as a PNG
there is, just right click and save. On a phone just use two fingers I believe.
As ortish said you can do it through the context menu. I will probably implement export to PNG (in high resolution) and/or SVG later.
Hot keys don't function. Do I have to do something to turn them on?
This is super rad!
What a great idea, thanks so much for sharing!
sorry for asking, but how do you use that…
Wow, this is handy!
