Builder Templates#

Dungeon Architect - List of Builders

Dungeon Architect supports many different types of dungeon layout methods and is designed in a way that new layout methods can be easily added in the future

These layout methods are called Dungeon Builders or Builders in short

This section lets you create a new scene preconfigured with one of the builder templates. Click on any of the builders. In the next screen, click the Clone Scene button

This will create a new scene based on the template, fully configured with the appropriate dungeon. It will also clone a starting theme file (and any other flow graph assets) and set everything up.

Choose a folder to saved your scene file. Once saved, the launcher would do the following:

  • Open the new scene
  • Open any theme editor windows associated with the referenced assets (Theme Editor, Flow Graph Editors etc)
  • Select the dungeon game object (so you see the properties in the inspector by default)

Samples#

There are tons of samples to explore. Select a sample you like and perform one of the following actions

  • Open Scene: Opens the sample scene (usually under DungeonArchitect_Samples folder)
  • Open Folder: Opens the folder containing the scene
  • Clone Scene: Clone a scene and also clone over the referenced assets (themes, flow graphs etc) so you can modify them without affecting the sample scene
  • Watch Demo: Watch a video, if it exists

Flow Graph Templates#

Flow graphs allow you to control the flow of your dungeon (more on this in the later tutorial sections). This section contains a list of flow graph templates you can use as a starting point for your project

Clone Grid Flow Graphs

Clone Snap Flow Graphs

Theme Templates#

Clone one of the many themes and use it in your project or as a starting point for a new theme

Theme template browser

Select a theme and clone it

There's also a category on External Themes, the ones that use external paid art assets from the Asset Store. You can use these themes if you also own the art asset.
