Hi Watabou, as usual, your generator is excellent :D I was wondering if you plan on extending it to include forests, mountains, etc? If fact, mage towers, caves, swamps, hills, the list goes on.
Thanks again for all your hard work.
To generate these icons, the same code is used as in Perilous Shores. Town icons are exported as sheets of five columns with each column containing three icons: a village, a town and a city. Danger icons are exported separately. The list of keyboard shortcuts is here.
Made with Haxe + OpenFL.
You can use icons created by the generator as you like: copy, modify, include in your commercial rpg adventures etc. Attribution is appreciated, but not required. Please consider supporting this project on Patreon☕!

I'm no developer or GM so I have no practical use for this lovely tool. But ¿Fun? ¡I spent a sweet time toying with the settings and clicking to see new icons! It's hard to make a procedural tool so clean and flexible in the visual results.
Thanks for sharing your hard work.
Just the outline of the flags. They end up with a white outline around them which doesn't always work depending on the palette chosen for the rest.
I extract the individual icons automatically with ImageMagick so I don't actually edit the individual icons normally.
For the curious I use: magick "perilous_icons.png" -crop 400x400 icons.png
I downloaded ImageMagick, and did this, but I can't figure out where it put the images, or even if it worked at all. Any advice would be wonderful.
I figured it out. If anyone else is reading along and isn't sure what to do, open the command prompt in the folder that has the art and the line Phergus shared works without further fussing. If you do more than one sheet, move or rename your town images first, or the next set will overwrite the last.
Well, actually those icons are (fantastic and) huge: i mean, while they are very clean and with minimum detail expressed, they are big enough to be useful to describe very different kind of buildings. Of course, I know it's a big work: you'll need to build "church" type buildings, "tent" type ones, "ruined" ones, "surrounded by walls", "castles" types etc.
However, in the meantime we can dream 💜
This is amazing. Great work! Have you thought about expanding this icon generation to the other aspects of the perilous shores maps properties? So icons for mountains, forests, dungeons, etc. This could be a great collection for adding onto games like Gloomhaven or RPG systems.
