I wondered if some of you in the know could recommend some map making software for me, as I'd like to delve into the map making world. I suppose it would be a good idea to tell you a little bit of background.
I can't draw for toffee...complete no hoper. Despite this i have a lot of cool ideas in my head for settings and I'd like some software to create battle maps for my players to play on, currently my only game is run using MapTool. MapTool has some nice drawing features but I'm not finding it user friendly enough to make maps with and I'd like to reuse/print maps if I can.
I'm aware of Dundjinni and CC3, so i wanted to find out which you thought might suit me best, or indeed if there is an alternative that i have not considered. I'm looking for something that is user friendly, intuitive and will allow me to create basic layouts in a short space of time.
For example i'd like to be able to sit down for 30mins and have a map that can be playable on (even if not that detailed), is that a realistic target? Also please bear in mind that i'm not really an artist and while i can work with GIMP or PS i'd like to not have to worry about re-sizing or tweaking textures and things like that, i'd really like the software to 'just work'.
Look forward to some responses. Thanks.
