DnD Map Tile Generator – New Features

June 16, 2010

I’ve added two small new features to the DnD map tile generator.

Neither will be particularly earth shattering, but they should make it a better experience overall.

First off, your settings will be remembered across visits, so if you find a combination of sizes that generates useful tiles then those settings will be used by default every time you visit the generator.

Secondly, if you generate a board that removes all the squares from a row then that row will no longer be shown. Hiding empty rows will mean the board always displays in the same place, no more risk of losing one to lots of blank rows.

Building on Past Work

June 10, 2010

No-one ever became a success overnight. If it looks like they did, then you are probably missing out on a lot of low level prep work they didn’t before you noticed their ‘overnight’ success.

Building a strong foundation, sticking to and repeating your core message and perfecting your craft are all ways to build up to that success.

My most popular work is always the Dungeons and Dragons map tile generator. It has slowly gained in popularity over time, and now drives the vast majority of visits to the toadflaxgames site. In the spirit of building on foundations to promote successes, I’m going to be making some improvements to the generator, to make it the best it can be.

Let me know if there are any improvements you’d like to see, and I’ll look at implementing them.

DnD Map Tile Generator – Additional Items

November 24, 2009

Another new feature for the DnD Map Tile Generator, I’ve added the ability to click and drag in items of furniture into the dungeon.

It’s really simple to use, create an account and log-in. Purchase access to the Dungeon Furniture Pack 1, and you’ll be able to see a scrolling list of the available items. Generate your board, then click on an item to add it to the tile. You should then be able to drag the items around on the tile, and place them where you want.

Printing needs to be done in landscape mode to make the items line up over the board correctly. Saving doesn’t currently include the additional items, I’ll work on this if people want it.

I’ll give some credits to anyone who wants to help test out this new feature. Drop me a line here or on e-mail and I’ll set you up with something, just let me know your account details.
