Anyone know of a simple map maker that I can fully control?
One Page Dungeon

It depends on what "simple" means for you. Both editors mentioned in the description are simple (to use) enough.
I'm seeing an error that reads "v6p9d9t4.ssl.hwcdn.net refused to connect."
Most likely it's something on your side or probably an itch's error. Please try clearing the cache.
I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here but where is the generator itself?
The page is the generator. Refresh to make a new dungeon. Hot keys to tweak what you get.
Awesome generator! Like a lot!
This is wonderful and super excited reading the new update!
Oh, please update the controls table!
You're my savior!
This is honestly one of the best things I have ever found on the internet. Imagine how many elaborate campaigns and adventures have been enhanced or birthed by your creations! You have brought so much joy to people with these generators. Thank you so much. Any chance at a blueprint feature like the mansion? xD
It's not possible, of course, just to port that feature into this generator (since the algorithms are totally different), but I am looking for a way to add dungeon customization 👍
Hey! By the look of it, there is something wrong with the zoom of your browser. Maybe you zoomed in and then refreshed the page with the scale value larger than 100%?
You know, I just now realize that it's zoomed out like that when I'm on my MacBook Pro's retina display. However when I move the browser window to my standard-resolution display and refresh, the zoom level is fine. So, it's still working! But that may be something you'll want to look into for the future. Thanks!
Any chance of a version that lets you independently hide individual secret rooms? I'd love to be able to use it more interactively on shared screen sessions for DnD now that everyone is staying home from COVID, but with my meager photoshop skills, it's difficult to work with just the show/hide all versions. I like the shading, but I'd have to totally turn it off to not make it obvious where the hidden rooms are in the PNGs if I'm only showing some of them, and it's tricky to be able to switch between the PNGs using a single screen (laptop) without showing all the screen share participants...
Have you tried roll20? There you can turn on fog of war, and only show stuff as their characters move around.
Yeah, I get it. I'll check how hard is it to implement.
Yo. Is there a way to change the text of the notes? This has kinda been bugging me and if there is a way please let me know
If you're exporting as json, you can edit the file in a text editor and change the text.
No, you can only hide notes, not edit them. But it should be enough (hide them and write your own), shouldn't it?
Hiya, I really like this project, is it's source available on github or anywhere by any chance?
I was going to publish the code, but now it's postponed because I keep working on the generator. It will happen eventually.
Hello! I'm throughly enjoying your generators, they make my life so much easier! But a simple question for this one, would it be possible to make it so the margin for the Shift+E export to make the margin as big/thick as a square on the map itself? To make it easier to add to a VTT without having to carefully resize it to fit in a grid. :)
Hm... That's actually how it was supposed to work, but apparently it doesn't. I'll check it.
Hey, would you ever consider making an option to do hex grid? I know it's probably a huge pain though :(
Drawing a hex grid is probably not that hard, but it won't look good considering the fact that dungeons are aligned to a regular square grid, will it?
Thanks for this.
It is great, but it's missing an important feature, in my opinion. Dungeon maps are usually numbered to allow writing a key for them. I know I can just write the numbers directly on the map or even just write the whole key directly on the map, but having them in that nice font, ready to go, would be great.
I also have to click a lot to get a properly interconnected dungeon and it'd be neat to be able to choose sizes, etc, but I suspect that's out of your intended scope?
This tool is amazing, I can't beleive i just found out about it! The look is gorgeous and just what i need for last minute prep :)
I just have arequest that would make it even more useful i think and that would be to be able to export as png but with the white as alpha so we can already put it on top of other things
I'll try to implement it. Meanwhile, what you probably need should be relatively easy to achieve in an image editor. For example in Photoshop just change the blending mode of the map layer to Multiply.
i thought about that but I'm trying to import the image in wonderdraft so i need to go in photoshop to make it an alpha first which is never 100% clean and it really bugs me out. No worries if it's not really useful to you, i will continue using my method :)
It is one of the most impressive project I found till date. I love the light-and-clear view you gave to it!
Is there a possibility of exporting these as SVG?
Currently only PNG export is implemented.
any chance of an svg export in the future?
We'll see. But why would you need that? As far as I understand SVG export makes sense if you are going to do some heavy editing of a map, what is your use case?
Yes I would be editing, as well as importing it into my mapping program. But please accept my gratitude for 4 wonderful products of yours that I now use for mapping extensively - cities, city 3d (and I have worked out what I was doing wrong in importing my generated city to 3D), this dungeon, and the fantastic mansions. I have been spreading the Watabou gospel to all my mapping friends.
Shame we can't influence the generator. Of limited use for me as is. Nice, though.
I love the rendering, it would be amazing to be able to use your generator to load and render our own map json!
Is this the coolest thing I've ever seen? Quite possibly.
Big fan of what you're done here! Can I get the docs for the output JSON file schema? I'd like to be able to integrate the output into my own programs. Specifically, I'm interested in the mapping between the door type integers and their semantic meaning, e.g. normal, secret, etc. Thanks!
This is not a real project to have "docs" :P
But here is an excerpt from my code with values for different door types:
public static inline var EMPTY = 0;
public static inline var NORMAL = 1;
public static inline var ARCHWAY = 2;
public static inline var STAIRS = 3;
public static inline var PORTCULLIS = 4;
public static inline var SPECIAL = 5;
public static inline var SECRET = 6;
public static inline var BARRED = 7;
Hi. New account holder. Trying to use this tool, but am unable. Instructions are to click the generator first, but can't find a clickable entity. Have tried with Firefox and Chrome. Sure it's right in front of me, but I need help.
OK. Senior moment. As soon as I sent this, I discovered clicking in the box. All good now.
Great! Actually, it's the best random dungeon generator i found, fix perfectly in my favorite dungeon style, beautiful. It would be nice to have some options such as the dungeon size you want to be generated and the amount of content like objects, what kind of objects you want to be generated, just like the dungeon.bin.sh random dungeon generator options, a small menu with a few options...
Thank you for the amazing software. "R" seems not to be working for me though.
Also, would it be possible to have (on the map) an annotation of the different "signs"? (stairs, downstairs, doors, tables, barrels, etc)
How does it look? Are they always axis-aligned or always tilted?
In most cases pages are too crowded as they are, not sure if I'll be able to squeeze a legend. And in some cases it may be quite long: https://dysonlogos.blog/2013/12/23/the-key-to-all-this-madness/!
Sorry for the super late reply. I think maybe it could be something like a number, like you did for the city 2D maps and then the legend of those numbers could be writen elsewere on the page, outside the map itself. (Sorry for my bad english, I don't know if it makes any sense). As for the look question, to be honest I do not really have an answer, but what I "see" in my mind it's a number just at the bottom right for exemple (but i could be at another positon) of the object that is anoted, or maybe right in the middle of the object.
Is it possible to make our own maps from scratch using this generator?
It may be impossible to achieve, but room numbering traditionally increases with distance from the entrance.
In the current version rooms are ordered clockwise around the center of a map (not randomly). I'm not sure about distance from the entrance, but I'll try to implement something more intuitive than the current way.
Love it. Could you add maybe small items like barrels and tables and such for the those bad at dungeon interior design?
Thank you. There are barrels in the current version (they look like small round crates) and I'm planning to add more objects e.g. tapestries and basins. It's not hard, but I can't spawn too many of them without making silly mistakes like placing beds in a vault or tables and chairs in the central chamber of a temple. Currently the generator doesn't know what kind of dungeon it generates and what is the purpose of each room, but this may change in the future.
Absolutely wonderfully crafted, one of the most beautiful map generators I have seen. I'm not a coding genius, and don't take this to harshly, but would it be possible to toggle the size of the dungeon. Anyway, beggars can't be choosers so I guess I'll be making me own massive dungeons.
This is beautifully done. Love the art style and the generator.
This is beautiful. Well done :)
I am interested in the idea of a real world town layout and building generator, old school, perhaps Georgian to begin with. Start with say approximate 100 m edge square block, 1 hectare, with terrace houses around edge, approx 60 houses to this block. 1Br 14,2Br 19,3Br 10, 4Br 10, 5+Br 7 (this is real world distribution). A few other parameters, and then view it in 3D. Cheers.

If CC then who do we credit? Thanks.
This is amazing! The most beautiful procedurally generated map tool I've seen. It's great that you can import these maps to RPG Map editor II, Mipui, etc, but would you consider implementing a solution for importing JSON files etc from manual grid mappers (such as those mentioned above), so that people can make their own maps, using such tools, and then use your One Page Dungeon generator to make them look this stunning?
damn you really need to write a tutorial...
Will you release the source code at some point?
Great to see the improvements! I believe that one toggle for the internal features (coffins, fountains ...) will became soon very important, especially to have a DM and Player version of the map. Thanks in advance!
I love it!
Man. Whenever I see this thing, I want to start building my own dungeon generator! I'd love to get into the tech behind it because this is super sweet.
Do it! That's satisfying :)
Haven't ever done anything with HAXE so that'd be a new thing. If you do Open Source this thing I'd love to take a look at it to get into the whole tech stack. Inspiring projects are always a good way to get into a new tech I feel.
Yes, will do.
Thanks! I started working on the implementation.
Also while at it, I think I'll probably also be able to support columns and statues if you'll add them.
Hey! I've added information about round rooms, columns and flooded tiles to exported JSON.
some of the things overlap
