Isometric Maps and Tokens

Posted in EpicTable Development on May 1, 2018 at 10:30 pm

In response to my recent video demonstrating EpicTable 2 character tokens, someone asked about isometric maps and tokens, and pointed me to Alex Drummond’s work (https://www.patreon.com/epicisometric/overview). All of this got me wondering…

Here is an isometric map and tokens in EpicTable 1. I turned off snap-to-grid and show-grid. Please, no one ask me to do snap-to-grid on isometric maps–I’m still recovering from hex maps! 😉

The only unfortunate thing is that EpicTable 1 makes tokens square, because…I guess I had an overly D&D-centric perspective. This squishes isometric tokens. In EpicTable 1, you can get around this by using image objects instead. This is a significant pain, made worse because you can’t save a gallery of images for easy reuse in ET1. I won’t make either of these mistakes in ET2!
