I'm using ros indigo and trying to properly use hactor_mapping and _slam with turtlebot in gazebo. I couldn't find any tutorials on how to do that. Is it possible or it works best with a real turtlebot? If it is possible to use it in simulation, are there any guides for doing that?

You definitely can run hector in gazebo. You can setup gazebo with turtle bot firs. Make sure you have a correct laser scan published by gazebo first. Then you can exploring launching hector_mapping. As long as hector_mapping is subscribing to correct laser_scan topic, it should generate a map.
