Can you reverse halls and rooms, so you get small rooms separated by long hallways?
Hello, 2DKnights. I've just made an update on gmdungeon.

If you want to make something like on image below, I can suggest you to use this code:

GML:
var setup = dungeon_create(); // Basic dungeon settings

// All cells become hallways
dungeon_set_hallway_chance(setup, 100);

var list = dungeon_create_rooms_list();
dungeon_add_room(list, dungeon_room(2, 3, REGULAR), 3);
dungeon_add_room(list, dungeon_room(4, 4, REGULAR), 1);

// And now apply rooms list
dungeon_set_rooms_list(setup, list);

dungeon = dungeon_generate(setup);

Can we port those dungeons into 3D environment or does GMdungeon has 3D functions?

If so, that is a very great tool to enchance potentials of GMS.

Even if not so, much props to your hard work 🙌

Hi, Sedgwick2K!
Unfortunately, gmdungeon doesn't have build-in 3D functions, neither it has script to expand this template to full dungeon (I don't want to include this script because it's not flexible and I use it in my own game).

You see, each cell in ds_grid, which gmdungeon generates, has values representing border states (closed, doorway or hallway).
By looping through the grid you use them to make "functional" dungeon with wall objects.

You can check docs for every script. Hope it will be helpful ;)

So, yeah, it can be used with with 3D environment.
