    What are the chances Us home gamers can get a copy of that script?

    I'm still cleaning up a few bugs. The biggest is the shadow in the edge doorways.... I have to clean it up.

    BTW here is a screen grab of the inkscape drawing I am sourcing all these from (pre-script):

    August Entry: QnD Tiles-2008-08-20_153007.jpg

    These were drawn on a 1/4 inch grid. I just click on each and export it as a png at the desired export resolution then load it into GIMP and run the script.

    This sounds pretty ingenious...you could literally apply the script to just about anything black and white (not grayscale) and produce a dungeon out of it...even scanned in scribbles. One of us Photoshoppers is gonna have to write an action to match this. Great, guess I know what I'm gonna be experimenting with on my first day off in 3 months...boooo.

    The script works the opposite way. Select the color of the hollow (not walls) area, set a threshold, and boom.

    This would probably work well on hand drawn maps, as the not wall area would predominantly be the same colour...hmmmm might have to try one

    That's where I was heading with it...to be able to doodle something up, scan it in, and let the computer do all the work for me. I can doodle up a map with the best of them It's the "making it look good" that's hard (for me at this scale) so if I can come up with an action to apply the doohickies and thingamajigs then I don't have to waste hours on a dungeon for a 1 night slashathon.

    I have decided on the 9 tiles to make a dungeon with:
    August Entry: QnD Tiles-dungeon_outline.png

    For a laugh, I re-oritented teh tiles, filled doors, and re-ran the filter on the full dungeon template. 27 minutes later, here it is. I had to save as a jpg as I couldn't get the png small enough, and my computer became so unmanageably slow I will have to resort back to the individual tiles:

    An extra early bonus is a whole blank floor
