"I tried out the Hex grid add on for Paint.  It works very well although I don't care for the origin point being the center of the screen although that easy enough to change after drawing the grid.  So the only thing I would add/change…"

"Pelle Nilsson I think did the GIMP hex grid add on, or it might of been something for counters.  If he did he  could probably be persuaded to add numbers also."

"If the hexsides were made the same color as the background than you could effectively create a numbers only image which could be loaded into paint as a seperate layer."

"I think the only feature the Paint.net plugin is missing from your list, is the ability to automatically add numbers to the hexes.  Could the numbers be done manually, on their own layer, and then saved for future use?  I'm not sure…"

Hexsheet Program?

I routinely generate hex fields as part of my game programming efforts and it wouldn't be that hard to put that code in stand-alone program if there's enough interest. Here is what I have in mind



- free (but with a link to my website)

- Output would be a png file (any size)

- Windows base

- Scrollable hex field in most of the window with a control area on the right.

- editable hex shape and colors.

- optional hex numbers with several number options, font,… Continue

Boxed or Download

Question for everybody,

   Would you be more likely to buy a wargame program if it came in box rather than as a download?

   The cost difference would be on the order of ~$10 for the download versus ~$20+shipping for the boxed version.

   The box version would include;

   - 9x11x1 (ca.) full color box

   - A 8x11 full color reference map

   - 4-8 page player guide (b\w, 11x17 Folded)

   - Cardstock piece with charts and table (b\w)

   -…

Hi Thomas, Thankyou for Trying my attempt at the RoutNapoleon Wargame :) your review made great sence, I will think on it. I find it easy because I know how it works, thankyou for your help

Your Wargame Design Program sounds like a realy good project, I think stacking&Viewing Satcks would be a good feature in a hex game, aswell as edge scrolling around the board maybe. anyway good luck with it.
