Other World Mapper is a new program in development by Three Minds Software, LLC. It is designed so that detailed maps can be made quickly and easily.

 

Map Elements
All map elements are created on their own separate layer, so they are easy to move and manipulate.

There are 5 drawing tools:

 

  • Lands
  • Rivers
  • Bodies of Water
  • Regions
  • Roads

 

These tools are stored as vectors, so that the map elements can be rotated and scaled without losing resolution, and rasterized each time they are edited. All of them have their own customizable settings and options (pen type, amplitude, line thickness, opacity, color, texture, etc.). Lands, rivers and bodies of water can automatically generate shorelines, and regions can "follow" the outline of any drawn element.

 

Art for features, such as mountains and castles, can be imported to create a specific look to the map.

 

Other World Mapper will be DRM-free and royalty free.

Here is an example map created entirely in Other World Mapper (alpha version) in less than 30 minutes.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our project. We're just past 30% of our funding goal!

The first two stretch goals have been revealed. We really hope to get to the awesome stuff in these.

 

First Stretch Goal: $10000

  • Option for labels to auto-center on objects
  • Option to populate regions with features (i.e. fill a region with trees).

 

Second Stretch Goal: $12000

  • Tools and artwork for creating Dungeon Maps

 

Here's a preview of some of the early artwork for the science fiction set which will be part of the art expansion.

We're at almost 70% of our goal! Thank you everyone for your support!

We've had a lot of great feedback and have decided to add two new functions to our first stretch goal.


  • Location notes for any map item.
  • SVG support for map feature artwork and the inclusion of a small set of SVG symbols.

 

We also have a video sneak peek of an early test for the dungeon tools of our second stretch goal.

Here's another early alpha test, this one of a cave style map.
