This is just the start, eventually it will be able to show doodads, units, locations.. also you will be able to specify what you want it to show.
locations? you're really going all out aren't you?
would be nice if you could toggle them on and off in that case. maybe just an image swap...

Wouldn't doodads and units sort of ruin RPG style maps? It would show where everything is, like secrets and such. I say you allow the uploader to choose what they want to be shown.
alternatively.. we could allow the uploader to choose one of "melee","rpg","madness","defense","bound","survival" or whatever else you can think of... and disable the map gen for RPG's.
now a question to everyone... my map reader/uploader thingy tries to pick out the map author. it does a pretty good job, but it's not perfect. I figure I could have it automatically fill a text box with the suspected authors, and allow the uploader to modify it if it's incorrect.. but then how easy would it be for the uploader to change it to his own name?.. or maybe that's a good thing. I didn't even put my name in a bunch of my maps. so what should I do?
