    Map Old School Megahexes

    Took a lot of fooling around with Inkscape to figure out things like "snap to nodes" and "snap to rotation center". Then ported them into GIMP to add a canvas texture to get that old school manila paper feel, but you have to zoom in to see it.

    One is Legal sized. The other is 11x17 (Tabloid or Ledger sized, depending how you want to look at it).

    That's promising.

    Could you post a few with no background in just black? Maybe we can make a seamless pattern?

    Dollhouse Syndrome = The temptation to turn a map into a picture, obscuring the goal of the image with the appeal of cute, or simply available, parts. Maps have clarity through simplification.

    Sure! Actually, I did the seamless pattern before I did the full map repros. A couple of things: the center-dots are missing, and the GIF doesn't scale to precisely 1" (center-to-center) hexes. But I got it to align pretty closely to a hex spacing in MapTool.

    MS Paint hexes. (Just in case someone wants 'em.)
