HexDraw is an easy to
use graphical editor for designing hexagon grid game maps. With
HexDraw you create playing maps with up to 200 x 200 hex fields
or 67 x 67 inches (170 cm).
HexDraw helps you to
easily create different terrain features like roads and hexes in
plain colours or textures. (Some textures are included but you
may create your own textures).
With your favourite
bitmap-painting program you can draw anything you like directly
on the hexes such as buildings, cities, space stations…Your
drawing will then have the right size and position.
You may load an image
as the background - let the map be see-through and place your
artwork on top. This could be an image from Google earth or a
historical map. Background images can be resized and rotated so
as to fit your hexmap.
You can print your map
on multiple pages and play your own design wargame, playtest
historical 'Advanced Squad Leader' Scenario, etc.
Exporting the final map
as a bitmap image for further use in other graphics design
programs is also included.
