In your builder, the US map is using the same map from the UK version. Shaded tiles are also a bit different.
Trap icons should be orange, not pink.


I'll have to find another reference and correct this - thanks for pointing it out! I'm a black and white EU man myself, so haven't had much experience of the US colours :)

Well, first of all thanks for the amazing work you are doing with it :)

Seeing that you are gonna add the expansions things and all, would be a good idea to have an "expansion" toogle, that adds the expansion tiles and the ammount of monsters extra you can add, also an option to remove all toogles so you can use it freely, for the people who plays "the fortress o'peril" and "gravity land" :lol:

Ive made a HQ21 background map and a full page background fitting the exact size of the web print of your map, if you can use it for something :)

Also, i can help with the spanish translation, dont see a language toogle tho, tell me what do i need to translate :)

Almost forgot the map parchment :D

@Eudoxio - thanks for the map background asset. I've tried that route as I had an SVG of the map bg - but matching up things really doesn't result in a very nice result sadly.

I'm going to look at tidying up the print view soon - parchment may be a little further than I can go - but thanks for the asset!

If you're up for a Spanish translation that would be amazing. Probably best to DM me and I can send you a link to a Google Sheet with the text to be translated? There isn't a language toggle - the UI will adopt the language set on your browser - worked well for German, would love to add Spanish too!

Thanks so much for the offer! I tried to DM you but it said you didn't exist?! If you send me a DM, hopefully I can reply with the link in there for you. Thanks again!

Yes - there is definitely a plan to add bespoke icons. I'd be curious to know if you'd likely only use single tile bespoke icons (for creatures and traps) or if you'd likely want more sophisticated larger/multi-tile graphics too?

defintley both, the room tiles from the two expansions are perfect examples of why, theres plenty of additional tiles out there that i would love to input. (obviously the room tiles would then need to have additional icons dropped on top)

Also - what kind of limit do you think you'd want... or not want, on the number of bespoke icons per quest?


not sure if a limit would be needed, let people make what they wanna make unless theres a technical reason to do so.
