    How to install Meander Map Pack

    I bought two Meander map packs. One was a .mod file so it was easy to install. There other is just a collection of jpg files. How do I install these?

    Did you purchase the collection of .jpg files from FG store or from Game Tile Warehouse's online store? If it was the latter, you have to add them as images in your campaign or if you want them as modules - to create module and then load in your campaign.
    The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

    It was from Game Tile Warehouse. Shoddy packaging. It was marketed as ready for FG. In fact the instructions on the item say to install it by copying the .mod file. Now I have to do the work after paying for the product?

    A collection of maps is better not being in a module since that then allows you to add maps to any campaign that you are running without having to open a module full of maps you may not need. Place the maps in any folder you like on your hard drive. Open up the campaign you want to add a map to, click on images and then on the folder icon and then drop any maps(s) you want to use into that window. By FG ready I'm sure what the creator of the maps meant was that the maps are optimized for Fantasy Grounds. In other words they are the correct dimensions and ready for you to just place a grid on them and play.
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Kris (the artist/cartographer) is usually very good at providing fully developed products, this may just be an oversight. I’d recommend contacting him direct.


    FG Product Development status: Pathfinder Playtest Ruleset and add-ons: In development. Pathfinder Bestiary, Pathfinder Bestiary 2, Pathfinder Bestiary 3 (in store).

    I've purchased Kris's meanders from his website as well as through the FG store. The individual image files are great as you can just drag and drop the image into any campaign without loading all the others. If you like the .mods, those are nice for easy load/unload. It kind of depends on how you want to use them in your game. They are sized appropriately for FG and look great.
