Thread: Map Draw Mode

  1. #11
    That's great to hear. Is the canvas mechanic going to remain the same? I'd imagine it's different given the tile preview we saw. I mention this as currently I upload a 4k by 4k white image as a GIF to kick the file size to 14kb. Is the 'canvas' size configurable? As in I can specify a white back drop (or use the window default backing) and just draw as opposed to requiring a background image?

    Currently if I create a new drawing and simply draw on it, the zoom has a strange behavior hence the need to have a backing image to anchor it.

    There are no boundaries, so will be able to create a new drawing without needing a background.

    Sounds perfect for my needs as a frequent user of impromptu encounter drawing. I have other questions but I'll wait for the Unity release, gotta clear out the backlog!

    Is there any word on this? I've been getting back into running games after a long absence and Roll20 just doesn't cover enough for what I want to do with it. I immediately fell in love with Fantasy Grounds but the map making tools as is are kind of lacking. I used to use Gametable (can provide screenshots of how that looks), which is tragically aged by now and lacking a lot of modern stuff but the simple map tools it provides for drawing and measuring maps were essential to running for me - I'd like to switch over to Fantasy Grounds entirely now but my options for drawing maps in program are somewhat limited and, when I first made an attempt to learn FG, kinda switched me off to it until I saw how much else is could do.

    Welcome to the forums TheButterdragon.

    There will be no updates to the drawing/image functionality in Fantasy Grounds in it's current architecture. Any changes will be in the Unity release, no release date set yet.

    Thanks for the swift response! Entirely psyched for that then - in the meantime I'll make maps the old fashioned way then import them in. Cheers!
