comment Data structure to store map layers in each Tile while keeping the order of terrain, items and monsters intact
Attempting to condense: Both your layer-datastructure and game-object-datastructure should have the same properties of (a) being faster than linear-time to modify at any point, and (b) stay ordered. (Is that right?)

By "zones" do you just mean "order"? I think you're overthinking this: A doubly-linked list (maybe nested such) sounds almost optimal. Have you tested your current approach and found it to be too slow before optimising like this?

Grammar and word-order simplifications. Code-formatting and inlined link. More relevant tags.

This seems purely a personal game design decision. We can't really tell you what game you should make.

comment How should loot be distributed across dungeon levels?
This answer could be improved by explaining what exactly it is you could learn from Diablo's loot system. Also, there are great ideas for how to implement "sensible" drops from creatures in this article.
