okay every time I play DMS/Dead Man Shadow
or join a yellow maze crew for orb farming i get the idea for making a map generator where its hosted on one of thos free site host things kinda of like the buff checker

http://www.tsukino.com/buffcheck.html

see but instead there will be tiny pics of the DMS map yes that will be the hard part xD we would have to collect pics of the DMS map and then every time we start a crew you can have one person doing the mapping instead of saying up left right top left small crack to the right

iam not sure if this is against the TOS tho i hope not but i thought it was a cool idea for helping people out your can correct me if iam wrong xD


here are a few pics for like 15min or more of DMS i did before
i just dont know of any way to make it xD maybe if someone else is smart enough they can

so what do you guys think?? if its not against TOS then i think it would be a good tool for everyone to use o: if someone can make it(and has the time to take the pics)

if you like the idea of being able to map your area heart this post if not you can click the broken heart

Is there a lot of demand for this?
I started writing a map utility once but it ended up being made out of spaghetti code that I couldn't even host properly. n_n'
I'm sorta interested in picking it back up from the top and trying to make it actually usable.
Entirely useless and bland stub site is here. (check the info link)

Basic room adding function = select room type, select door you went in & came from, designate if it's a loop.
I'm not sure how much better this would be than doing it on paper unless I get overview, export, and paths working.

I guess I'm just trying to gauge interest before sinking too much time in it...

If there was something that could recognize what door you clicked and automatically write it in notepad, im sure it would get some use.

I think it would be handy User Image
It needs to be something that can be used rather quickly though...
