 Post subject: Flint-Map, A Flexible VTT
PostPosted: Tue Jul 05, 2011 9:28 am 
Hi, i have been working on a VTT called Flint-Map.
The idea behind Flint-Map was to produce a VTT that allowed for the easy creation of Frameworks/plugins, my original plan was to use Lua for the scripting, but this quickly ran into performance and stability issues. So after a bit of research i have settled on using run time compiled C#.
This brings many advantages speed being the main one but also flexibility, if you wished you could create a rotating door that dynamically block light as they move or a particle effect Engine.

As an example here are two tools and an entity from the BaseFramework
(The BaseFramework is a Framework that contains most basic features and is used as a base for others... unsurprisingly)

http://flint-map.co.uk/wiki/FrameworkBase:Tools.Pointer
http://flint-map.co.uk/wiki/FrameworkBa ... CircleTool
http://flint-map.co.uk/wiki/FrameworkBa ... ties.Token

currently implemented

Loading of custom frameworks
Customizable dice parser
Macro Engine (Requires work)
Lighting
Shape and line drawing tools
RoomMaker (http://flint-map.co.uk/wiki/RoomMaker)

To be implemented

Line of site
Fog of war
Other things ( give an idea and I will do it )

I am aiming to have weekly updates during the beta period.
more information can be found at my website http://flint-map.co.uk

Is support's Mono? If not, you are leaving out 10% of the computing population.

I save all my Campaign Files to DropBox. Not only can I access a campaign file from pretty much any OS that will run Maptool(Win,OSX, linux), but each file is versioned, so if something goes crazy wild, I can always roll back to a previous version of the same file.

Get your Dropbox 2GB via my referral link, and as a bonus, I get an extra 250 MB of space. Even if you don't don't use my link, I still enthusiastically recommend Dropbox..

More than that if you figure any servers running Linux.

So... it sounds like it'll be a fun project, but personally of no use to me. :|
