Map programs?


I haven't messed around too much with Inkarnate yet.
https://inkarnate.com/

It looks great and I've heard good things about it.

$$ doesn't look to bad, but you have to pay for it monthly or yearly. 

 

DungeonFog is another online map making website.

https://www.dungeonfog.com/

I've seen some good looking combat maps out of this one. It has some nice interactive features allowing actual for what is a quassi Virtual Tabletop. (It's actually really good for IRL play, if you can make a table with a built in screen!)

$$$ it costs a bit more than inkarnate, and you pay monthly/yearly.

Premium Software, 1 time Cost.

(I got a huge deal on this through Humble Bundle! spent $40 and got like $380 worth of software/addons)

It pretty much runs photoshop with vector.

 

This site has a much larger list of software. https://www.dnd-compendium.com/dm-resources/maps-map-tools

 

Something to keep in mind is a LOT of these products, often require you to purchase addons/assets, etc. Other's unlock all their assets/addons/etc just by subscribing.

 

However if you're good at a program like GIMP or Photoshop? You can theoretically make maps that look just as good, if not even better than the above software with none of the associated costs.

There's also a market out there for maps, dungeons, cities, etc. People will even buy assets for these programs, and other's. Though it should be noted, the market is getting quite saturated.

You don't say? Well I'm just getting started on gimp but more motivation is not bad.

I had a peek on inkarnate and I really liked it..however I prefer buying things and own them, but sounded like those often are really costy sigh..😝
