    Wip Online Map Editor idea

    Hey guys!

    I'm happy to join this magnificent forum. Absolutely love the work you do here. It's very inspiring.

    It was inspiring enough for me to start pitching the idea of online map editor. 'Cause I've never found a proper one and I'm a prop-whore. I love to design and print out cards, minis and other hand-outs. Never tried to make a map though, was using maps from this Guild in my D&D campaigns.

    So the idea is to make the online battle-map (at least) creator, where you would be able to build beautiful maps using intuitive, clean and simple, user friendly interface, Save them on the site and print out say as a poster (bunch of A4s, cut white edges, ducktape them together). I'm almost a decade in game-dev (mobile and casual games) so user experience is a big thing for me.

    And here is my very first quick mockup. I've used Dungeon Tiles and WotC poster-maps as inspiration (hopefully this won't get me into any troubles, if I stick with this design and go live with it) and tried to understand what I can achieve in Photoshop.

    Tell me what do you think! Any feedback is highly appreciated. Feel free to kick it to the ground %)

    Also I'm VERY interested in what you (potential users of the editor) would want from the editor? Which features are essential? Are there any good examples of of map editor, usability- or art-wise?

    Thank you beforehand! Looking forward to spend more time in this creative community and make some good maps.
