Another map made with Hex Kit (and some further thoughts)
I started playing around with layers in Hex Kit, and I'm pretty pleased with the results. I really love the art style used in the application. It sort of reminds me of the board icons from the Avalon Hill version of Titan. I'm a real sucker for hand drawn things. So far, the beta of Hex Kit seems pretty darned stable. A couple of minor bugs such as duplicate icons being placed in adjacent hexes, but that may be something that I'm doing wrong. It seems to be able to handle maps up to 999 x999 hexes, which is way bigger than I would ever use, so it should cover the needs of most people. In any case, based on what I'm seeing so far, the release version is going to be awesome.
