Outer Snippets

I haven’t come up with a better name yet. Outer Snippets are snippets to replace the blank area around the dungeon with a set of alternative snippets. There are usually used on field maps, like roads, canyon or a forest. Here is an example of how a forest could look like:

The generator outputs a road, grass and.. non-passable trees instead of boring black tiles
  1. Let’s design the snippets to get a forest. In contrast to the dungeons we already made, we don’t use blocking tiles, but instead use (dark) grass here.


  2. Create a new map below the Space Map, call it “snippetsOuter” (exactly this name, or “snippetsOuter1”, “snippetsOuter2″…), with the same tileset and the dimensions

    width = 3 * snippet_width + 4 and
    height = 5 * snippet_height + 6

    Tip: If you have a Areas Map, you can copy-paste it, as it has the same dimensions.
  3. Draw it like this:
Outer Snippets. 2 snippets are not used.

That’s all you need to do. The plugin will scan your maps and as soon it finds a “Outer” map, it will automatically include it.
