advASCIIdraw - the advanced ASCII art program

Made for designing dungeons and environments in dungeon crawlers, roguelikes and similar games, advASCIIdraw offers many powerful tools, useful to create any kind of ASCII art in no time. Instead of stifling creativity by being difficult and tedious to use, the program empowers the user with features like advanced and custom brushes, layers, and more.

One highlight is the ability to define presets, that allow a brush to draw any number of symbols or colours in a given ratio, to quickly fill an area with a custom made or predefined texture.

For more details, a gallery of images made with it and a free download of the latest version, check out the website!
