Make Traveller Subsector Maps in Hexographer

Here's a video showing how to make Traveller-style subsector maps using Hexographer. Because of the transparency along the edge of a generated map, a photo editor that can work with PNG files will also be needed for embedding maps in your other images as overlays, etc. A free editor to use is Inkscape. I'm using Paint Shop Pro in this video.

The Worst RPG Rules I've Seen in a While

"Are you a virgin? This can be very important if you are female and trying to charm a unicorn."

Really? Yes, it's true. The quote above is from an RPG called RINGWIELDER. Best to stay clear of it. I beg of you. For everyone's sanity. This is exactly the kind of role-play rules that have mentally scarred many an adult. You know. Those old fat dudes with fanny packs that tell you they have been role-playing for 30+ years. Mention this game to them, and they will tell you what a great game it is. Nostalgia can warp a mind. Very sad.

At any rate, consider this a PSA.

3D Traveller Subsector Maps

On the forums there was talk (again) of using 3D maps of subsectors for Traveller. Squares (cubes) get mentioned every time. Or multi-layered hex map planes are mentioned. Rarely though are 3D hexagons mentioned. I posted a video showing how I used to make 3D maps back in the day. It's not too complicated.
