Edit Your Existing Maps OR Generate New visually, instead of using 0s & 1s in the text editor.
By : free_prisoner
When I was building sample maps to test my code on, I needed complicated maps, so I could know how
will my code deal with the worst maps and how much(Cost & Time) will it take to solve them. I could't play with 0s And 1s in the text editor, (Try it for a while and you will get crazy) First I coded a script which creates rooms randomly, but it didn't go will and I didn't have the
complicated maps I needed, & I didn't want to waste more time to build the Map Generator. I decided to build maps Manually (But Without Text Editors & Without playing with 0s and 1s), So I build this visual editor to know how the map looks like and after testing it , I can edit it
again to make it more complex.
The Editor will read all your maps from the "maps" directory, and they will be available for editing
or you can create new map and save with other maps.
You can change colors and the look of the editor by changing the config variables in the script.
Finally, I hope you find it helpfull , and Good Luck In The Contest.
