Manual for the
A program that uses artificial life methods to "grow"
Intro and Overview
Vision and Plan
These dungeons are meant to have MOBs (mobile objects, formerly
monsters) in them that are busy doing their own thing,
and that will systematically hunt the player when he attacks or steals
their treasure. Players are meant to have access to a fully revealed map,
so they can see where bands of MOBs roam, and constantly re-evaluate
their best paths through the dungeon. In the next version of DungeonMaker,
we will implement an intelligent map, which will contain
pre-computed paths to important locations, making it much easier to
have smart MOBs.
Of course you can also use these dungeons with traditional monsters who
hang around their spawn points waiting to be slaughtered.
