  1. Sidebar: Map Scale - Size does matter! (Part 2 of 2)



    This is a continuation of the previous post about map size. It turns out blog size is important too, and the full post exceeded the allowable size, so I had to split it. You can see part one here...

    Map Area

    The other factor that influences the size of a map file is the size of the area your map covers. Youíve probably already figured out that, if all other factors are equal, a map thatís 50 squares on a side is four times as large as one thatís 25

  2. Sidebar: Mapping Scale - Size does matter! (Part 1 of 2)

    Todayís entry isnít specifically about my groupís journey from a physical tabletop, to long hiatus, to a virtual tabletop with Fantasy Grounds.

  5. A Neophyte Tackles the FG Extension - Reducing Copied Ruleset Script

    This time Iíll look at reducing the size of the manager_effect.lua file in my extension. Recall from last time, I copied that lua file, in its entirety, to my extension then added a single line of code to change the default behavior of an effectís initial visibility.
