Almost what I was looking for

Goo gul

I created my own spin-off version of DnD to play with a group of friends.. the game turned out well, but everyone complained about the lack of visuals.
I found this app, and was thrilled by the idea I could create the map, and host it on my TV. Talk about epic visuals! To my dismay, I have discovered one small flaw in this app, which renders it useless for my game. Our game is a "room by room" grid system. EVERYTHING is perfect on this app for it, except the visibility. There's no way to make each grid work as a room, while concealing the surrounding grid tiles. I tried using all kinds of objects, block LoS, but to no avail.

I even tried removing range of light source, but that just makes the character disappear entirely. If it's set at the minimum (1) then it reveals all 9 tiles around you.

Hopeful suggestions:
Allow a more friendly tile-to-tile approach.
Allow LoS to be more concisely controlled.

If anyone knows a way to get around my issue, I would love to hear it and would instantly give this app 5 stars, and would have everyone in my group purchase it!!



Coming from a background as a DM playing AD&D, and using Dundjinni, I thought to upgrade and try this. I purchased it to help create a better environment for my gamers, hoping to create a richer environment for them. What I have found is that this is fine for square dungeons and buildings. However, If I am going to use it explore extensive cave networks or even a ship, which my party is doing right now, it lacks the tools necessary to help draw it out. The purpose of a digital map is detail. Without high detail, I don’t see the value in this. I really would prefer a selection of pens to create depth. Not a lot, but just a few. Even a fill option would be nice.

Great tool for grid maps


There is a strange lack of snapping grid drawing tools in the App Store, and while this one is pricey, it was worth it for me. I will say it needs some tuning as it chugged down over half my iPad Pro battery in a single evening of 3.5 hours of play, so must have something scanning for input. A wider brush option would be good too. Still, this tool was almost exactly what I needed to be able to get off of the grid paper notebooks.
