The results so far are underwhelming. Many will see little to no change, and possibly a bit more lag in generation than before. That part I’m kind of sad about, but the ability to separate dungeons, caverns, and mixed maps is now here, which no doubt pleases some of the people who were waiting on that feature. Additionally, this new system opens the door for many, many new things, which I wanted to take the time to mention so everyone knows what I’m up to for this app:
- Dungeon/Cavern Exits: The ability to remove a tile already exists, but under the new system I’ll be able to let you choose specifically if the replacement tile has an exit to the dungeon or cavern.
- Cartographer Profiles: Profiles with cartographer bios, links, a tile gallery, and more information on their projects. Think of it as a nice expansion on the Supporters page. Plus, this will ideally encompass a login system for cartographers to facilitate editing profiles and uploading new tiles to the mapper.
- Better Export to PNG: The new system will allow me to rewrite the export to PNG system with shorter URLs and potentially larger maps. (Maybe.)
