    Info Hi!

    Hi, I'm David Walters from the UK.

    My interest in maps comes both from role playing games and Earth when viewed from orbit (I'm a space nerd too).

    I'm not much of an artist but I've always enjoy technical drawing and as a games progammer I've constructed several hundred maps for a strategy game I created (Blood, Grain and Steel).

    I've recently developed a piece of software called Grid Cartographer which you can use for drawing maps on a grid. Initially it was developed for old cRPG games like Wizardry and Might & Magic - but I hope to broaden it's appeal with new features if I can.

    Welcome! I can't wait to see what maps you post.

    Unfortuantely I don't believe I can utilize Grid Cartographer, as I'm a mac user, but it looks awesome all the same!

    Yeah, sorry it's Windows only for now

    You've also reminded me that I've not posted a picture of the sort of thing you can make with Grid Cartographer!

    Grid Cartographer is a useful little program. Also welcome!

    Also Super Box Factory looks entertaining.
