From: Eindhoven, the Netherlands
Well went to get back into it and found my QGIS skills had atrophied (I.e. I forgot everything) and I'm not going to take the time to relearn them. Then you have a single point of failure were everything is dependent upon one person, granted a very good person. So I don't know, but the hex tile maps are tried and true and allow for easier map and scenario development.
Is there some way to develop a large map and then do submaps off of it. like Tiller does in the Panzer/Modern Campaigns??????
Wrt hex tile maps: you can also create your maps using HexDraw - we are open to any means as long as it produces a map we can scan. IIRC, the HexDraw demo is limited in size (to 20x20 hexes); you might have to buy the full version to create larger maps, with HexDraw also having a limit wrt maximum map size.
Wrt large maps and cutting submaps from it: that can be done. HarryvdK (see the 'Mods' subforum) has created 100km+ of the Netherlands, from North Sea coast to Arnhem/border with Germany as one map, and is cutting smaller maps from it. I have done something similar for Southern Storm, where map areas were (almost) overlapping.
