Not color yet, but we'll be able to print maps on a sheet of posterboard with something that fits on a bookshelf.

Bonus "feature". By working with the "Cthulhu" style water overlay, on a field of "Classic" water, you can get a depth effect to show shallow and deep water along a coastal shelf. Cthulhu water has several shades, so by placing (and replacing) individual hexes, you could do various depth effects.

Tried to use the program to create an overlay. Very disappointed. Size of Hex was way too big. Anyone have this problem and a solution.? Also says to save the file and edit with Gimo, Paint etc but only saved in its own format. Anyone have a workaround on that. Otherwise a very innovated and useful full map program but not what I expected.

Just had an email from Tom. To make it work he suggests saving in "native" and selecting the proper file format in that mode allowing for editing in Gimp or whatever. Thanks for the quick response Tom

Version 2.0.2.0 works on OSX using Wine/WineBottler to make it into a standalone app.

Honestly I just installed the latest version of WineBottler which comes with a version of WINE. I basically just followed the instructions for WineBottler to create a self contained app from the OgreMap2.exe including a copy of WINE in the bundle. As much as I hate to say it, "it just worked".

Before this I've never used WINE, Parallels or any such tool as I have not needed a windows application in over 15 years.

That's cool. I didn't know that Winebottler was a thing. I thought it was just a part of Wine. Neat little tool.

Any possibility that some future version might include bridges?
