The Program


What is Other World Mapper

Other World Mapper is a design program for making world maps, dungeon maps and city maps. The idea is for it to have specialized tools and an intuitive user interface that allows the user to create maps quickly and takes the frustration out of creating highly detailed maps.

Our Objective

  • Drawing tools that are designed around map elements such as land, rivers, water bodies, regions and roads, as well as customizable settings for each.
  • Everything drawn with the map element tools to be stored as vectors, yet rasterized real-time. Objects can be scaled, rotated and modified from their vector outline, while their borders, textures, fills and effects will be rasterized again (real time) after each change.
  • Each map element to be a separate layer so that after it is drawn or placed, it can be moved and manipulated.
  • A program that would let us import our own art for features such as buildings and trees, so that we could create unique maps, but with all the advantages of computer editing.

Who Are We Making This For?
