Not too long ago, I was searching around my house for standard graph paper in which I could plan out dungeons on. After not being able to find any, I resorted to looking for sites online in which I could print some out. I was dissatisfied.

I questioned my use of standard graph paper in the past, as well as using notebook paper in lieu of the former when I had none. "Why don't I just attempt to make a custom graph specifically for ZQ use?"

So, within a few minutes, I created what may be my greatest contribution to the ZC community (or not w/e)!

After printing out one page, it already feels infinitely more useful than using the standard junk I so frustratingly worked with over my years with ZQ.

Comes in colors of gray, red, green, and blue.
Although a very simple creation, if they're useful to you, let me know (via this topic, preferably).

I downloaded it out of curiosity and these graphs are legit. I've attempted to do something similar by making each room a 5x3 block and lightly adding details, but this is much, much cooler.

Well, that's handy for a specific purpose. I'd still use normal graph paper for showing the details within rooms at a larger scale, but if you just want to draw broad representations of your maps, these are the ticket.

This is great! This is very useful to announce a quest, and give people a better idea on design.

I don't know if I'll actually use them, but either way they are extremely awesome! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for the feedback, everybody.

Since these seem to be useful to at least a handful of people, this topic could be pinned if any staff member sees it fit to be.

I figure I'll eventually make several clusters of graphs (1x1, 2x2, 3x3, etc.) and update the zip file.

Since EL no longer exists, and it was requested, you can download the template here. (Exate: If you want me to remove this or whatever, just say.)
