    I came across "Other World Mapper" just now. Their kickstarter campaign ended successfully a month or so ago. They hope to have the product finished before end 2015, with an alpha before May 2015. You could get the basic package for $25 from kickstarter, or $35 for the one with more art. They want to make it DRM- and royalty-free. They seem to take a middle-ground between the ease of some programs, and the functionality of Campaign Cartographer (While also trying to avoid the latter one's learning curve).

    Too bad I missed out on their kickstarter. I'm gonna keep an eye on this one, it looks like a good addition to have for running FG games.

    Kickstarter campaign (ended)
    Their website: otherworldmapper.com
    You can find them on facebook, google+, and they have forums, all accessible from their website's "community" menu.

    I only use the D&D 5E Rule set. It i safe to assume that if I did not add the rule set in my post I am still talking about D&D 5E. At-least until / if we get a rule set for Mech Warrior

    Years ago, it had some features/bugs that irritated me, but I've mellowed out considerably. I guess it's ok in my book. There's plenty of artwork to be found for it on their forums. I haven't used it in a while, but it also didn't see updates for it come out since then either. The owner of the company has sort of "disappeared" for quite a while (a few years now, I think), but I think you can still get the software. But ask on their forums first, to be sure. I remember you had to email a user called Kepli on the forums with your license key, and then he's set you up with a download to get it. Not sure if this is still going on.

    You may use these for free for commercial or non-commercial use. For commercial use you need to give them credit and a link: http://www.spiralgraphics.biz/packs/index.htm

    These are mostly tileable.

    I like http://www.cgtextures.com and use the resources there quite often for base quick to use natural world textures. As for tileable I often just make my own; grab yourself a decent high MP digital camera, go out into the real world and snap away. In GiMP/Photoshop user High Pass and Offset filters to make the textures tilable. Simples!

    If your into making your own textures you might find these tools interesting:

    http://neotextureedit.sourceforge.net

    I use Neo Texture Edit quite a lot to create my own custom textures.

    I have had a lot of success with Dindjini. I still use it today. The folks in the forums are very helpful and supportive. But, unfortunately, the development has not kept up with the times and it is getting outdated.

    I have autodesk sketchbook which can be great for touching up (or blending away parts not wanted from maps you are working on) - especially if you can drop a hexagonal layer on top. Rivers and mountains can be made more realistic etc. You can generally pull the images into other programs afterwards if you wish.
