Anyone interested in making isometric maps should check out this Kickstarter campaign, which ends in a week.

I like the look of these.  Especially the isomorphic one in the URH corner.

Why is this group so quiet?

Figured I'd break the silence with my latest mapping-content offering.

GMs of tabletop RPGs looking to quickly and easily create gorgeous regional-scale hex maps should check out this Kickstarter campaign, which ends in 3 weeks: https://kck.st/2EcQVOx

Anyone who may have missed out on the MapForge Kickstarter campaign...You can now get in on the MapForge Indiegogo campaign.

There are two new videos to check out, even if you already backed the Kickstarter. And the MapForge Beta release will probably be re-posted later tonight.

Correction, there will now be NINE free content Add-Ons for MapForge (for backers and non-backers, usable with or without a software license).

All the Stretch Goals have already been unlocked, but there are still 8 days remaining in the campaign, which now has well over 1300 backers.

Oh, and a new Pledge Level has been added for those who want to use the app for publishing the maps, or for commercial projects.

Quick update on the MapForge Kickstarter campaign: One week into it, with close to 900 backers, two Stretch Goals have now been unlocked! 5 free content Add-Ons for everyone (whether a backer or not), plus support for random map generation.

Thanks! I launched the Kickstarter campaign for MapForge, and, amazingly, it funded the same day!

I like it!  Good luck.

I can now reveal the name of my new mapping program: MapForge

And, for now at least, this is the app's icon.

If all goes well, the Kickstarter campaign should launch before mid-February.

If you are truly going to go digital with your map-making, Adobe CS is the only way to go. All printers can handle those files, and any other program will have overprint and color control issues until you filter them through CS. It is the standard if you intend to actually produce more than 100 copies of a game.
