Control Updates

This makes working with Grids a lot easier. Not a flawless system by any means, but it should help a lot:

  • Press - and + to increase or decrease the size of the Grid, letting you see those tiny select boxes way easier. (You can also just press = instead of +).

  • Pressing the left or right arrow keys will jump over by a whole box.

  • Press "g" to bring up the coordinates so you can see where you are in the grid. Press it again to get rid of them:



  • Press "0" to reset the grid size and coordinates back to normal.

    Grid Generation

    If you've created a new Grid or otherwise don't have any rooms assigned to it, you can now generate rooms for it, according to whatever format you choose:





    Basically $XA and $YA will get you the correct letter, while $X1 and $Y1 will get you the correct numbers.

    Generating things will generate the rooms and fill the grid out accordingly, but you'll still need to render the grid to see the relationships change.

    Cool.

    I've been wondering, are there any plans to eventually give players a visual representation of the grid. In a similar way to how I go into MS paint and do a quick map out of squares.
