A grand new tool I discovered

Postby torilen » Friday February 20th, 2015 10:25am

Found this from a post on FB. I just tested it out. Seems to work pretty well. Makes a pdf
file really nice-like. I haven't tested the printing...so the scale may be a bit off. Shouldn't
take much to figure that out, though. Enjoy.

That's excellent!

If anyone gets a test print off, please let me know how it goes!

Wow, pretty cool. Is it possible to get this printed like on a board?

Yes. You make the tile(s) you want. Then push the convert to PDF near the top.
After that, it will give you a button to push to save it. Save the file where you
want it. Then you can pull the pdf up and print it off just like any other gaming
tile or tile set.

Just a note - when you save it into PDF format, it will give you the option to make
the area close to the borders of the tile you made. Make sure you do that, so it will
only save the tile as you made it, without a lot of extra unused space. I've found with
just the little bit of toying with it so far that it will create a PDF tile roughly 10 spaces
wide by 8 spaces tall on one page.

I found that application too.

But so far i dont found some work made by someone from here (or i dont remember someone from here there).

Could u post links of tiles or maps u made there?

And i also pick up download this application in SWF file, to make maps offline.

Thanks torilen!
Because of you i lost another half hour of my life! :D


It's really a cool tool! It outputs pretty neutral grey tiles. In Photoshop these are easy to recolor or to add illumination effects, make them darker or lighter.... really a nice tool!
First thing i did was a 4x8 room to overlay two normal Heroquest Board Rooms.
