This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information. If it has trouble recognizing your password, click the 'Forgot your password?' link to reset it with a new password sent to your email address on file.

Found this link posted at the OD&D boards:

I haven't downloaded it yet as I'm at work, but the sample map outputs look pretty cool.

Slick little application.  I just downloaded it and installed it (even at work!).

I've finally gotten some time to play with this.  It is pretty slick.  Gotta be careful with settings or you get some wacky results, but this will come in heaps of useful in the coming weeks.

There's an "Export to images" button at the bottom of the map window.

I love this thing, but it is really easy for me to achieve "run time error '6' overflow" with it. Anyone else having this problem?

I haven't encountered any errors when using it, but I haven't done many large settlements with it.
