A map editor made for Dungeon Keeper 1 and KeeperFX, prioritizing ease of use and extending map editing capabilities.

When running the editor you'll be prompted to locate the game executable. After which subdirectories will be detected, and maps will be browsable and playable using the 'Play' button. To see all editor controls check the Help menu.

You can set up file association on Windows with any of the map file types (.slb, .clm, .tng, etc) and the editor will open the map when you open the file in Windows. You can also drag a file into the editor window to open the map.

Installation Intructions

Extract the archive to a place of your choosing using a tool such as 7zip.
Then run Unearth.exe and point it to your KeeperFX or Dungeon Keeper directory.

The Linux download can be found by clicking on the Show all versions (2) link here on the download page. Just extract it somewhere and chmod (+x) the Unearth.x86_64 bin. You should then be able to run it and it will work the same as the Windows version.

Even though dungeon keeper is almost 30 years old and such a niche game, this Editor is always up to date. I observed that this program is so intuitive that anyone can master and use it and it doesn't even need an intro. There are hardly any questions, which speaks even more for the talent of the developer. Thanks for making this and for the maintaining, mapmaking is fun because of you, you're a big part that makes the Keeper Klan possible like it is today.

why is the CPU usuage so abnormally high?

Did you mess with the settings in Graphics?

nope i did not mess with anything, just loaded the newest version

ok, yeah I see it too. I'll tell rain on discord.

thanks a lot!

Ok, it is a BUG of this version. I turned back at 45.563 and everything works perfectly. All preview images are shown, both in objects and creatures and more.

I’ve never had problems with this program that I find beautiful. Now, just taken the latest version I open the label Thing/ decoration and I no longer see any of my images used as "icons" of various objects and creatures. Have they been deleted or has the link system name png vs object name changed?

There's a new version on the official homepage of Unearth. Be sure to check it out if you have any troubles. If you still have issues on the last version that's a different story of course.

Last version! :-(
