    OK -

    Here is the GIMP script. This includes both the dungeon map maker (under filters) and the batch processor for applying the same filter on a bunch of files in a directory (under Xtns in the main Gimp window)

    Enjoy!

    EDIT: There is an update to the script in this post that fixes one little bug, and allows for downloading a random cave map of the internet as a base map!

    Inspired by Tim's maps, I banged out a quick example of the script:

    I used a solid white fill for the BG, java (coffee beans) for the walls, and set the distortion to 50%, grid at 24 px.

    Here was the input (traced quickly over tim's map with rounded rectangles and circles):

    And the result of the script after adjusting the shadow layer curve and drawing a few doors in with a door brush I made up:

    Hey, you just put me out of work! Replaced by an script. What's this world coming to! LOL!

    Nice work, Rob. I might have to start using GIMP to take advantage of your expertise.
    Cheers,
    Tim

    Certainly not my intent! Consider it more of an homage And personally, I'd rather build a tool to help me do what I need over doing it repeatedly... might be why I'm an engineer and not an artist

    I just wanted to demonstrate that the script could also create a more old school style map - no just a semi-realistic one.

    LOL! Don't worry, I took it as a compliment. I was just kidding around. The script did a pretty cool job and if I was using GIMP I would probably use it as well. I'm all for saving time when working on a project.
    Cheers,
    Tim

    I reckon there is two (at least) reasons to embrace scripting. One is that it gives you much more time to faff with the interesting details and two, you can change the basic floor plan and rerun it. I am an engineer over artist too and I always think that with extra scripting in the hands of an artists it ought to push the maps further beyond my ability to keep up.
