Essential improvements

Grid Cartographer

Supported by Grid Cartographer. Its Game Link feature assists in creating the game map. This is not an automap. From the Grid Cartographer's documentation: “This approach enhances the immersion factor by allowing you to draw the map as you perceive it, not revealing every secret ahead of time. Hidden doors remain obscured, traps are left undetected and unsprung. It's still up to you to explore and record what you see on the map as you venture forth!”
