Documentation is split into four sections - user documentation, API documentation, GM notes and file format.

  • User - User documentation describes how to use the software, giving details of the GUI interface. It is best to read this first.
  • gm - This provides background on the ideas behind map generation, including discussion of the various terrain types and how best to use them.
  • file - Map files are stored as XML files which contain binary data for the map itself. This isn't ideal from a readability point of view, but storing each tile in the bitmap has an XML node is very impractical.
  • api - Currently, this just consists of JavaDocs. They are incomplete and variable in their usefulness.
