It should be there soon. We had to get the MapTool test build out first.

Thanks to community member Thargun for bringing our attention to Farlong RPG's German language YouTube channel with MapTool tutorials. Nicely done.

Craig just merged a bunch of code into the Git repository along with updates to the German translation file from Matthias. I've said it a bunch but it's worth saying again, our community rocks.

Here's an interesting site for making maps. Folks on the forums seem to like it a lot. 
Dungeon Painter is a powerful rpg map design tool. Scene Viewer is a free encounter mapping tool that you can embed into forum or blog posts

GIMPs pretty good. The secret is understanding pixels per inch and how that translates into MapTool grid and cell size. I go for 100 ppx and the maps turn out pretty well. You can bump up the resolution to get better looking maps but the size of your maps in MapTool will become large.

+RPTools Thanks for the quick reply! I've forked and cloned the repository, but some JUnit test cases seem to fail. Is the repo "dirty" or is there a problem on my end?

I'd also like to snag task 15.5 (setTokenheight/width). I do, however, believe the the spreadsheet links to the wrong forum topic. I think it should be:
http://forums.rptools.net/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=25823

But instead it goes to:

You can find the  preview build of 1.4 at http://forums.rptools.net/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=25577&start=15#p256785

It has integration with Roll20 character sheets. Give it a spin and let us know what you think. 
Hmm are you saying the preview build for the mac version and windows versions have different build numbers? Well thats embarrassing. I am completely swamped this week and next week, but I will try fix the latest addition I have made and get a build out the next weekend (so around the 18, ...

For the Role Playing Games You Play
Introduction

RPTools is a brand of open-source programs designed to enhance traditional pen-and-paper role playing games. They can be used for face-to-face play, or Internet role-playing in real time even if your players are on the other side of the world.  MapTool (which is our free virtual tabletop application) in particular works great with voice-chat services!

These tools are not a role playing game by themselves, nor are they meant to replace everything at the RPG table. Rather, they are designed to be as flexible as we can make them, usable for a wide variety of gaming systems, from fantasy to sci-fi; from tabletop miniatures games to purely spoken-word games.

The tools aren't built from the ground up for any specific RPG, which is what allows for the great flexibility we have, but as a result, it can be difficult for us to indicate easily to individuals how best to make use of the tools for their specific purposes. Fortunately, the community forums are a thriving, active source of rapid responses to any questions you may have. We take pride in this as one of our greatest strengths and we encourage you to join us there. If the game you want to run is a commonly-found one, there's a good chance you can locate someone who's done most of the fine-tuning for you!  At the risk of leaving some out, our users have developed frameworks for D&D3.x, D&D4e, Pathfinder, ShadowRun, nWOD, GURPS, and many others.
