Wondering about the ponyfinder map...

Postby tiwake » Wed Aug 28, 2013 6:43 pm

Hey, I was just wondering if the ponyfinder map was going to be a vector...

I ask this because I'm now paying a guy to work on inkscape to impliment whats called "whiteboard". With whiteboard, it would allow a group of people to view and edit vectors within the inkscape program. Once this is done, I would imagine it would be a useful thing to have for playing something like ponyfinder online, in place of the normal wet-erase game mat. If the ponyfinder map is a vector, that would make such things that much more fun.

The person who does it, does it by hand, so unlikely to be a vector, however, even as a .jpg or .png or what not, you can feed it right into roll20.net or maptools and use it directly without any hitches.

either way it would need a source file... will the source file be avaliable to download somewhere, for the people that were either part of the kickstarter, or buy the book sometime in the future?

I hadn't planned on releasing the raw file, but I will consider it. I'm not sure why you'd need that for general play though, unless your ponies were suddenly the size of small cities.
