3D Virtual Tabletop
By Tap on Fire
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
For pen & paper role playing games.
Explore a dark dungeon containing friends and foes from the collection of more than 50 miniatures (mostly monsters). One map is included, but you can add your own, view it from any direction. Each of the minis can be given a light source to help keep them safe. Zoom out to see the whole map at once, or dive in close to the action to count squares.
This early version is single player only.
There are no rpg rules implemented - it's purely a simulation of physical miniatures on a map like you would have on a table at home.
The most promising Virtual Tabletop Software ever
Superb, elegant, nearly perfect in its simple power, this is far and away (really the only) virtual replication of real tabletop gaming…no needless complications, bells, whistles, or distractions…just the reality of tabletop gaming, network enabled (or soon to be) so you can experience REAL tabletop gaming from anywhere, anytime. This app is truly astonishing in how close to a real table and miniatures it gets - nothing else even comes close. Support this app…it unlocks ALL the power of imagination that is the true strength of real tabletop gaming and interaction without diluting the experience with video game interfaces and needless special effects. It is as close to "being there" as you can get…kudos to the developer for sticking to his simple yet powerful vision of reproducing true tabletop human interactivity, globally enabled! Allow nothing more, demand nothing less! Thanks for this app!!!
Definitely an early release, but promising
The user interface is dead simple to learn, and this is going to be extremely useful -- but, as the author states, it is definitely an early release.
Basically, everything that is supposed to work, does work, but there are not a lot of features implemented yet. I really like what I see so far and look forward to future versions.
To the person who said you can't zoom in and out...Yes, you can. Please read the documentation.
I'd like to see an ability to fully light the map, so that if you're the GM and you are just using it for your own convenience, you can see all. Adding a miniature should, I think, drop the new mini into the center of the viewport rather than slowly animating it moving onto the map. That's a small issue, but I could see it becoming an inconvenience if you were working with a lot of them.
It's not a mature app yet, but to be fair, it's clearly documented as such, and I think this will be extremely useful when it has had some further development.
Not all that I hoped for...
I was hoping for something similar to this, but with the ability to zoom in and out and also the ability to add more light. If those two issues were fixed, I could give this app another two or three stars, but as it is, it is not very usable. I love the concept though. I hope that future updates will improve this. I would hope to be able to use this in a game of Dungeons and Dragons soon if these issues were fixed. Another thing is if it had an option to build your own dungeon instead of relying on the internet, but that is not as major.
