I am very disappointed that the Random Map Generator was taken out and is not supported any more with the last couple software updates. Any chance that might be added again in the near future?
Since JTCS has been end-of-lifed with v2.02, no, there is no chance it will be added again in future.
Note that when you create a random battle in v2.02, you are in effect also creating a random map. You do not have full control over the details like you did with v1.04 and earlier, however. Meaning to say, you can broadly specify the map parameters, but the old sliders are gone.
With JTCS 2.02, you have two ways to create random maps:
Create a random battle. This will create a random map named Random[X].map. Feel free to load up and revise in the map editor as you please.
Create a random map in v1.04. (Reinstall JTCS 1.04 as necessary.) Copy it over to your JTCS v2.02 install. Again, feel free to load up and revise in the map editor as you please.
Really, not much has changed. The only difference is that, in 2.02, we dropped the sliders. But in 2.02 you can still make make random maps. If you sorely miss the sliders, they are still there in v1.04.
