I don't know who is actually maintaining it, but if anyone is at least dabbling it my money would be on Joanne, the web mistress.

Adding KS3 and 4 is not practical since they are specifically designed to be built up. The mapmaker would have to be updated to be 3D... which would be very cool.

It still would be nice to be updated with all the old sets and the new kickstarters.

To my knowledge the creation of the present map maker was part of KS1 funding and the updating was part of KS2 funding so that would be why you would only find KS1 & 2 items in it.

Really??? That is disappointing. They should at least reference the old iconic pieces of the classic dungeon sets like the secret doors and long corridors. The rest could use KS1 tiles as substitute.
But caverns? The entire original caverns set should be represented. I can see not having cavernous corridors, chasm, etc but at least the original set.
I prefer to play around with the actual pieces when planning my setups so have never used it. But I have room to do that. I know that you and some others live where space is premium so map maker would be quite useful.
