Diplomacy Map Maker Question

Postby jeeb00 » 25 Aug 2014, 21:22

Does anyone know where I can find reliable map editing software for MAC OS? I used to play some PBEM games with friends using Realpolitik, but it hasn't been updated and is no longer supported on Macs. We're playing the Colonial Variant now, which I can't seem to find an editable version of anywhere, but Realpolitik had a great version of it that you could edit.

Hi jeeb. Sadly paint.net, which most GMs here use, is Windows only (it's voluntary freeware.) A couple of GMs with Macs have used GIMP and there's a topic about it at viewtopic.php?f=426&t=14320. GhostEcho who contributed most of it is still around and would, I'm sure, be helpful if you need it -when I looked at it it seemed more complicated than I wanted, as a non-graphics person.

Hope that helps
