I've so far used this generator in 2 of my campaigns. I love it. Any chance you'll add the ability change the names of things? I'll sometimes run into some pretty great ones, but not like the layout, and just have to hope for another one, that also has like a "Prison of Ur" or, "Damned Isle"


It's a minor nitpick, but given how awesome the generator is, it's the best I got.

(+1)

Most likely the ability to rename (and reroll) stuff will be added in the next update.

(+1)

A wonderful generator, as always, but sometimes (quite often, actually) things are listed on the key that aren't there on the map. In fact, the last 3 maps I generated each had a missing location — not the same one each time.

(+1)

Yeah, I am aware of this issue. These missing things are actually there, but right outside the edges of a map. For this reason it happens less often on island maps. For example:

You can barely see the top of the missing "Misty Shield Village" at bottom of the map.

I'll try to fix it in the next update.

(+1)

Ahh, I thought that might be true. I though they might be under another feature rather than off the map.

(+1)

This is a fantastic map generator.  I would like to see a TAGs or a way to generate large lakes (water in center with land all around) or just land (ie no water at all). 

Thank you. In the post I said that these features are harder to implement, but they definitely will be added in the future, probably in the next update.

(+1)

Impressive, as ever.
I know, it's a minor thing, but, while I see the font size for the legend (cool), I find it missing for the black circled big numbers along the map. Surely, the option for having them smaller would be nice, imho.

(+2)

Yeah, I agree, but I didn't want to add too many controls because the panel was already crowded. I'm planning to rework it in the future. I skipped this specific parameter as it seemed to be the least important of them.

Hey! Thanks for your work! The generator is very useful and creates handsome maps.

Is there a same style generator for places without cost?

(+1)

can you separate the legend from the numbers? I would like to rename locations but still have numbers on the map.

(+2)

This will probably be implemented in the future. What will definitely be implemented in the next update is an ability to edit location names.

(+2)

hi, the generated maps are really cool, is it possible to have the buildings as separate assets?

Thanks!!

(+2)(-1)

Buildings? You means town icons? But why would you need them, they are just squares and triangles!

(+1)

Hello,

thanks for your answer

I wanted to generate maps without the

town icons and then I will add them later

Town icons are procedurally generated (they all are slightly different), so they are not like real assets. I would recommend just moving/copying them to places where you need in an image editor if you are not happy with generated locations.

(+1)

okay, I'll try to do it this way

 thank you so much for the answer!! =)

(+1)

Amazing work. Is there a way to change location names?

(+3)

Currently no, but it will be implemented in the next update. Cheers!

(+1)

cool coast generation, like you can remove part of the map like settlement or dangers.

(+1)

Amazing. As always the being able to edit the location names to make it fit any setting is invaluable.

(+1)

Is there a way to turn off certain things from spawning, like mountains?

(1 edit) (+1)

In the next update it will be possible to turn off settlements and "danger sites", but not mountains because they are an essential part of landscape generation.  If you just want to get less mountains you can add "lowland" tag in the "Tags" window.

(+1)

Amazing

(+1)

Hello and thank you so much for this awesome tool! Any chance to get also a squared grid? 

Thanks again

Just to replace a grid is relatively easy, but I expect all sorts of glitches with neighboring cells sharing not a whole edge, but only a vertex. I'll check.

(+1)

Thank you so much!

(+1)

have you added the coastline feature you mentioned working on. a way to make coastlines. you said it was in the works.

This will be added in the next update of the generator.

(+1)

ok

(+1)

A great easy to use region generator. Looking forward to more updates. 

(+2)

Love using this generator for worldbuilding. Thank you for all that you create!

Would it be possible to have an option to turn off the skulls? They really stand out as something you have to interprit one way, as opposed to just having a town or a ruin.

(+1)

Skulls are supposed to represent very diverse "dangerous places" - either dangerous for those who visit them (dungeons, abandoned temples etc) or dangerous as sources of threat to surrounding lands (fortresses, portals etc). I will consider adding an option to hide them. Any  ideas for an alternative symbol to denote such places are welcome!

(+2)

I think the skull is a good icon to represent that. Having the ability to hide the skull or change the icon to one of the existing ones would be cool. 

As a stretch, allowing for custom icons would let people add whatever they want. Would be really cool to change all the icons, like the trees and mountains. I would think it would only involve exposing the icon being used and allowing the user to change it, leaving the generation logic untouched.

(+3)

For me I’d be happy with the Skull being replaced by a Dungeon, Temple, Fortress or Ruin if that’s what it is meant to represent.

I like to use this tool to quickly generate a world map, and for me the Skull is too “pirate-y”. I’d love it if the maps had the options for just castles and towns and other sites like that.

(+3)

That’s amazing!

Feature request: 2 modes to “toggle legend”. The first mode clears only the text legends. The second mode clears the text and the number marks. The numbers are very useful.

(+3)

Thank you!

So the first mode would be just numbers, right? Wouldn't it be easier to number features you need by hand? The generator doesn't mark all the features on map anyway, only some of them (the most interesting ones for "an imaginary cartographer").

(+1)

is there any way to make coastlines?

You mean like a coastal region of a continent? This will be added in the next update.

(+1)

yes, thank you. 

(2 edits) (+1)

I love this! Fun to play with and great features. My only complaint is that this would be easier to work with if there was an options menu in addition to the keybindings and export feature.

(+1)

Thanks!

Right click anywhere on the generator to access the menu.

(+1)

Tags are a great way to edit this.

(+1)

I love these maps and there are a lot of nice options.

(+4)

This is really neat - any chance you could add an option to have the hex's be numbered?

(+1)

A really nice little tool! Is there any way to display the names of the elements on the map so they can be included on the exported file, like with your One-Page Dungeon Generator?

(+1)

I hope this will be implemented in the next update. Currently there are two problems with it:

  1. I'm still not satisfied with the quality of toponyms.
  2. I'm not sure what is the best way to display those names to keep them unobtrusive.
(+1)

No worries, I just wasn't sure if I was missing an existing option to toggle them on or off, but if that's still being worked on then fair enough.

(+1)

Wonderful!

(+4)

The new options are great.  My 11 year old son has exported 'his island' into procreate and is now colouring it and making stories for our family campaign.

(+2)

Great job as always.

(+1)

Any chance there'd be an update to generate the same style regions with less water, perhaps just a section of coastline?

(+1)

Yes:

...Still, there are some things I am definitely going to implement: ...Generated lands don't have to be islands. I'd like to be able to generate coasts of large continents or even inland regions.

Very sweet :)

(+1)

Amazing!

(+3)

Amazing work, as always! Hat off.

(+1)

How do you download the resulting map? 

(+5)

Currently the only option is to take a screenshot. In the next update hi-res PNG export will be added.

(+1)

Thank you

Right click then click save image....It saves it as a PNG image.

Nope

It does for me

(+1)

Now it is possible to download a hi-res map by pressing E (click anywhere on the map first).

(+1)

Awesome, thank you!

(+3)

Can you add an option to align the grid north/south or east/west? Instead of defaulting to cockeyed?

(+2)

Will do. I case you are wondering why these maps are tilted: link.

(+1)

Right on. Thanks for working on this!

(+1)

Lovely. Could you add a third mode to the hex alignment so we can have vertical hexes, not just horizontal hexes (and tilted hexes)?

Added to my todo list👍

Hello Watabou.


Is there a way to change the Legend Names of Districts?

I understand that you can make and place your own Landmarks (and edit them), but I can't figure out how to change the Districts.

Thank you for this amazing generator.

Best regards

(+1)

Is it possible to use the results commercially?

(+1)

Yes, added a note about it to the description.

(+3)

Anyway to have the grid cover the whole map?

(+1)

Will be implemented in the next update

(+1)

Nice! :D

(+1)

That's great!!! I love the effort on enabling the style options!

(+1)

So cool man! I love it!

(+1)

I love it! Great simple black and white line art! Please make a download image option!

(+3)

This is wonderful. You've pretty much covered all the mapping I will ever need now.  The aesthetic is just lovely. Simple clean lines with all relevant information.  If you are taking requests I would love you to work more on this. :-)

(+2)

Noted :)

(+1)

your generators are very cool!

(+1)

You rock, plain and simple.
