<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

He explained that already. It's for DnD, I thought this was a good idea for those who still play with the board game version.

Make something useful. You are just taking up valuable board space.

I take heavy offence by that remark. You could work on your way of talking to people. Next time, think before you type. <_< Imagine your first actually good game being dissed by some random person. It doesn't make you feel very good.

I have two things to say. One is a waste of space on the boards and the other is not, but I must say both. <_<

Make something useful. You are just taking up valuable board space.

1st: Just because you don't like DnD doesn't mean everybody should think the same as you.
2nd: I hate Naruto lovers and I don't just go posting about it in every Naruta fan game I see.
3rd: By saying that, you are also wasting board space.
4th: I also took offence by you saying that.

Nuff said.

@OP: This is a great idea... Somewhat, I would rather use a tileset to make the maps, you know, since it's on computer, why not use every possible ressources you have to make a DnD game more enjoyable.

A couple of things though...
- Remove precise check from every objects and make their bounding box "full image"... I was having real difficulty to remove the ladder thing.
- Have tile sets instead of brown walls, maybe they could be zelda-ish (The first one on the NES where you see the walls in every angle)
- Show a preview of the item you are currently placing so you don't have to put it on the map to be able to see it
- Actually put all of the available objects in the grid to the right so you can just choose by seeing them
- Make the room scrollable
- Have "player" objects that you can place and have kind of a hero sprite
- Have "monster" objects and other NPCs that you can place
- And of course more objects to place :huh:

You HATE people just because they watch a certain show? That is deplorable. I could parallel that to hating certain people just because they are gay or because they are women.

Ok I'll have to rephrase that... I don't hate those who just love Naruto... I hate those who ADORE Naruto and only go by Naruto and if it's not Naruto it's nothing else and blahblahblah you know what kind of people I'm writing about... I just can't stand those peeps.

But then again, since I know that not everyone is like that, I don't just go in their topic saying their game is wasting board space.

And this is an OPINION (about Naruto ultimate fans), nothing to brag about, quote me, or just argue with me trying to convince me that I'm not right.

You, ultim8p00 (or whatever your real name is), need to learn the meaning of the word respect.

[Edit]
Oh and I won't bother answering your next reply, whatever it is.

It's about as deplorable as your signature :huh:



@dencrason:
Probably should have spelled out "Dungeons and Dragons," not everyone knows what DnD is.

A friend of mine actually used Excel on his laptop to make maps, this program is a nice start but it's a little clumsy to use. I would recomend making a clipboard kind of thing on the side so you can just click on the item you want instead of cycling through things. Then make the left-click always just delete an object.

I love DnD, but I prefer digital versions that do all the math for you, don't get me wrong, I'm not stupid; I just prefer to skip all the math and get to the game.

Not only this, but level design can be hard on sheets... But in a program, you can put graphics, lots of monsters, players, easily move all this, even have a different view for the DM and for the players... Just switch it when you show the screen to the players so only what they see is shown. At this time, you can also enable all the good looking effects to add to the WOW effect.

All this to say... I hope the OP is having futur plans for this project...

of course you don't have to use RPGplane. Just the mapmaker is enough to play a fine session in my opinion
