    Poking around and looking for a mapping program, I picked up the dungeon painter studio on steam. The web version looked decent enough but had some "issues" with Adobe Air.

    This is still in Early access in Steam... I wonder what is good no on...

    I use Dungeon Painter Studio (DPS) for all of my maps and find its very easy to use - you can knock up a quick dungeon in minutes, though detailed takes longer.

    I have also created some you tube videos to help others : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxX...YOKZ3wiqQugjtQ

    If you have any questions, by all means ask. If there is a demand I can take you through a demo of the software via twitch.

    I make most of my maps with Illwinter Floorplan Generator I think it's quite easy and fast to use (some example maps) not as powerful as DungeonPainter but the results are good enough imo

    Honestly, with FG‘s poor graphic capabilities, I wonder why SmiteWorks is not integrating this 5$ functionality directly into Fantasy Grounds...

    Maybe because they have other plans:

    Hello All, I am reletively new to using fantasy grounds but wanted to let you know there is a program on steam called Dungeon Painter Studios, it has an export option designed for Fantasy Grounds and is a cheaper option to most of the other paid ones listed. Hope this helps!

    Bumping this for Trenloe, but with updated data.

    Would it be possible to add my MapForge application to the list? It’s been shipping since March 2018.
    Here’s the info for the chart entry.

    Name: MapForge

    Website: http://www.mapforge-software.com/

    Platform/OS: Windows 7 - Windows 10, Mac OS X (no native Linux support, but can be used with WINE or Virtualbox)

    Base Cost (USD): $30

    Cost with recommended Add-Ons: Varies widely depending on genre and specific needs, but approx. $45-$100 (assets that allow for commercial use tend to command a higher price tag than those that are "Personal Use Only")

    Description: Locally-installed application intended for creating great-looking maps quickly and easily, either from scratch, with the help of a random generator, and/or using professional content Add-Ons. 2D top-down raster image. Focuses primarily on tactical-scale battlemaps, but could also be used to create town/village maps and some area maps.

    Pros: Support for layers, textures, and bitmap filter effects (e.g. drop-shadows, glows, blur, color/contrast/brightness adjustments, and bevel effects); Ten free content Add-Ons provide a great “Starter Kit”, usable without a license (low-resolution output); huge selection of additional professional content Add-Ons for sale, some of which can be used for published or commercial map projects; supports print resolution as well as VTT resolutions; artistic talent and technical skills not required.

    Cons: May require as much as 4GBs of RAM for very large maps with many layers; not 64-bit, so must often be run in 32-bit compatibility mode; not intended for city maps or large-scale (e.g. continent) maps.

    Examples: Dungeon, Tropical Island, more coming soon

    Notes: Users can import their own (or downloaded) artwork, such as assets downloaded from the Dundjinni user forums, rpgmapshare.com, DriveThruRPG, the Roll20 Marketplace, etc.
