So I know this is probably a tall order, but I wanted to see if any plugin devs in the community would be interested in porting (and possibly even improving upon) this classic dungeon generator:
Sanshiro's map generator (w/ DreamX extension)

The plugin was iterated upon a few times, but unfortunately it hasn't been supported for a few years. I know other dungeon generators exist, but Sanshiro's is my personal favorite--simple, yet very powerful!

As you might've assumed, the plugin doesn't work in MZ. I'd love to see someone new take interest in picking it up and adding new functionality to it.

I'm not personally familiar with it, but from looking at the end of that thread you linked to, it appears the original version was never feature complete/bug-free.

So it looks like you're asking if anyone wants to both port the code (have you tried it in FOSSIL?) and also make it work correctly. Depending on how the original plugin was written, reading it well enough to gain that understanding to fix it may well be less work than a developer just writing their own version.

I'm not trying to shoot down your request, in case it does tantalize someone - just making sure you have some idea of the extent of your request.

I didn't actually look through the entire thread, but the plugin was fixed up and improved upon by at least one other person (DreamX), and it had enough features for me to use it in a commercial project with no major bugs.

You raise a good point - I haven't looked into the code, so I don't know how well-documented it is or exactly how difficult porting it would be. I assume it's doable since the plugin was iterated upon by other users. If it is too difficult or time consuming, then I may need to commission the port instead.

I checked the thread for FOSSIL, I might give it a shot!

I was listening to songs by Chuck E Cheese's voice actor (Jaret Reddick from Bowling for Soup) when the meds I was taking for my stomach virus apparently stopped working. I can't take my next dose until morning, but it's no use anyway. I'm officially sick again. Of course, I'll definitely take the next dose either way, but it's useless now.
New profile picture! This time, it's representative of my current project.
I suddenly feel like making a game for little kids: a pointless sandbox of cute animals, silly collectibles, and random mini games.
Anyone else just like, not bother to make games themed around specific holidays? I know I won't get them done in time for it to make sense.
