    A lot of these look very interesting, including the new Dungeon Draft. I havent bought them yet as I invested so much in CC3+. I'd hate to have to learn a new app now.

    I've been trying to compare a few mapping tools that seem to fit the bill for my needs. I've narrowed down to arkenforge and dungeon fog. Would be interested to hear people's thoughts on these two programs. I think CC3 is too much for my needs.

    Has anyone used these two programs? Any thoughts on them or pros/cons from their experience? Any other recommendations for something similar?

    I've heard good things about both. I've played with Arkenforge and it looks slick and is relatively easy to get up to speed on.

    Oh, one more point for Arkenforge, apparently they recently added the ability to export for FGU including the line of sight. https://arkenforge.com/fantasy-grounds-unity/

    Yes I saw that ability to export to FGU. Seems very slick if it works. Actually I think dungeon fog beinng subscription based is a point against it for me personally.

    Through some more digging I also found another program, dungeondraft. Anyone have experience with it? Looks pretty nice as well

    CC3+ just went half off.

    Yeah, I've been using it for about 3 weeks now. It's pretty sweet and easy to use. They've added the ability to import and use your own assets, tiles, textures, etc. now. The developer is continually adding more, but I've pretty much switched to Dungeondraft as my main dungeon and battle map making program now that I can use any assets I need to make a dungeon. It's not quite as powerful as CC3+, it doesn't have layering (yet), and there is a definite 'style' to it, but using the imported assets from CC3+, I've been able to closely recreate some of my campaign cartographer maps in Dungeondraft.

    One note on the importing process: I would not say it's a simple process to do (not like a simple drag and drop thing). There is a YouTube video that explains how to import and 'make' the asset packs, but if I can figure it out, pretty much anyone should be able to. There are many y/t videos of it in action, so I'd take a look at those (but note that most are older and were made when the import ability was not available.)


    Lastly, just throwing this out there, the same developer makes a great world mapping/overland mapper called Wonderdraft. Again, very easy to use and more mature (as it's been around for a few years now).
