Have you ever wished you could just show your players an illustration, or photograph, and say “It looks like this”?
Sure, there’s something to be said for keeping things in the theatre of the mind but at other times being able to show the village from above as an aerial photograph, or the woodland path that the villagers are suspicious of, or even the strange floating rocks at the top of the mountain.
Or perhaps you just need a great looking hex grid.
FlowScape solves that problem.
You can now buy FlowScape on Steam.
The software will cost you little over £10.
There are hundreds of different 3D models that can be dropped into the landscape created by FlowScape. Furthermore, there’s a community of contributors and free content upgrades.
FlowScape works at 4K (and has twenty-four), and if you’ve been able to watch the video, you’ll have seen how you can adjust the sun position, add rain and create all sorts of cinematic effects.
If your gaming set up is super high-tech and you use monitors with speakers, then FlowScape even has sounds.
Maps, not photographs
Grids? You bet. FlowScape can move to top-down view, with square or hex grids and it can export in 2K to 8K if you want battle maps.
You’ll need 4GB free on your machine, 1.8Ghz processor, 1GB of VRAM in your graphics, 4GB of RAM and DirectX 11.
