Whitey8888's Review of Ye Olde Map Maker

The tools in this are easy to use, features such as printing to scale (which I haven't used yet) sound really cool. But maybe the 5th time I launched the app then loaded my custom map, most of my objects that I placed through our the map were deleted. They show up on the preview screen when I go to load the map, but once loaded, they're gone. I'll jump back on if fixed, but it isn't something I'm going to use our promote if it's unreliable.

Make a map, freeze on save

Subject says it all. An annoying waste of time

Under rated

I have used the website and it has an ok ui and the iOS one is even better. if you want the more good reasons I suggest you go to the other review titled under-rated. Totally worth the 3 bucks.

Odd design choices lead to some frustration

Dvana's Review of Ye Olde Map Maker

Reviewed on 9/5/19 2:05 PM

For some reason, all of the walls in this app are designed to operate on the half grid. It’s a little hard to explain, but as an example: a diagonal line is composed of two completely different wall pieces. A 1x1 square would be composed of four different corner pieces instead of four straight lines. There’s been some effort made in the tool to smooth this incongruity over, but it doesn’t work on the diagonal and in general makes map drawing quite awkward. Aside from that, I haven’t had any issues and the tile set is pretty perfect. I’ll probably still end up using this for my final draft but the half pieces make sketching in this tool a daunting prospect.

The Bug

After a year of someone else having the problem I cannot save a map. Even after logging in. I really would either prefer this get fixed or the money back. I do love the website though.

Um....

The idea itself was fine. The problem is that there is no instruction in the beginning, the way to make the maps is intuitive until touching the screen makes everything move. A little revision in that area would be much appreciated.

Nice

So, I've used this for two years. It works okay but I agree that the interface is too CAD-like and not friendly to the casual user. Now, put in a little effort and you get great maps with quite a few features THAT YOU CAN PRINT OUT AT D&D MINIATURE SCALE!!! You don't get that just anywhere. Would love to see the devs come up with Ye Olde Dungeon Creator and would give this 5 stars if they add more objects. In the meantime, enjoy. Put in the effort and enjoy!

Clumsy and chunky... early development!!!

Reviewed on 12/19/18 1:26 PM

I would love to see much smaller grids, grid size options, scrolling smoothly instead of only by halves or quadrants, maybe add color for foliage, water, etc. it seems very very chunky, blocky, and clumsy. Not a lot of options for fine tuning or adding any sort of detail. Lots of bugs! The scrolling jumps and is very hard to find the pieces or maps you need. Scrolling while building is even worse. Freezes often and or boots you out. It also gets stuck in object placement mode sometimes. I think the concept is great and this has a lot of potential, but I would not recommend purchasing this until it has been developed more.

fairly rudimentary

lacking in objects and features. sadly the only mapmaker I know of on the i pad

Did almost exactly what I wanted. Needs a better image export function

The UI could use some polish, but you get used to it. My one complaint is that when you save a larger map as an image, it breaks it up into four pieces, without giving the option for one whole image.
