Inkscape Countersheets and Hexmaps

Some new features have been added to the Inkscape countersheet and hexmaps effects since the 1.0 release last year, as I have written about in the thread on bgg. I don't want to make another official release (with a link from the project homepage until the new features have been a bit better tested, but 1.1 and 1.2 can be downloaded from links in that bgg… Continue

Inkscape Boardgame Extensions 1.0

I decided to upload version 1.0 of the boardgame Inkscape extensions now. Changes since last release are too many for me to remember (most things are just fixing bugs for the countersheet and hexmap generator effects). The biggest change is the ability to specify colors and other SVG attribute values in the spreadsheet file (for advanced users only, and nothing you really ever have to use).

There is… Continue

Improved Countersheet Generator, 0.99

Finally I believe the problems with gradients in created countersheets have been fixed, and the resulting boardgame extensions 0.99 uploaded. They also include some more small improvements and bugfixes, and a first version of documentation for the file format used to describe countersheets (mostly kindly contributed by a Eric Hanuise).

Generate Countersheets or Hexmaps from Command-Line

I'm adding the following paragraph to the readme.html file of the next release of Inkscape Boardgame Extensions:

For advanced users, if you want to use these scripts from the command-line,

there's little to stop you. You need to have the

lxml python module

and (from the Inkscape extensions directory) in your python

Hej Pelle,

Roligt att träffas där :o) Japp, dörren till Apollotempel, på kvällen efter en moped tur runt norra delen av ön under vilken ett öga svullnade på värsta sätt. Jag följde då en plötslig inspiration och erbjöd till guden (appolo är också läkare) en halv öl och en fisherman i ett hål vid foten av templet: en god natts sömn och tidig morgon mitt botade öga kunde öppna sig för att njutta av sol uppgång ... :o)

Naxos är faktiskt en riktig trevlig ö - har du varit till 15 meter hög helleniskt vakt tornet ? - med rätt avstånd till andra öar som Amorgos och Delos. När var du där ?

Tänker kolla på din program att skapa enheter. Är intresserade av möjlighet att skapa effekter som "skugga" (etc) som Illustratorsmal av John Cooper, men det bodde vara också möjligt med Inkscape, jag behöver lära mig det. Jag vår på franska forum "Frog of War" och kunde läsa att flera skriver om din program hexmap :o)

Vi hörs !

MVH, Pk.
