Battleforce-style Planetary Campaign Maps?
« on: 19 February 2024, 16:29:43 »
Is there a mapmaker program out there that can generate a custom strategic planetary map that closely follows the style we've seen in Battleforce 2, Campaign Ops, and some of the other official publications? My desire would be for a program that mimics the official material as closely as possible.

I mean, there has to be SOMETHING, right? Otherwise what are the developers themselves using?

The developers use a team of artists and programs like InDesign and Photoshop.

That being said, I second Hexographer/Worldographer. It allows you to create icosahedral maps with just a couple of clicks, with plenty of art options even in the free version.
