Well ladies and germs, ol' AdamX20 has been hard at work bringing the latest and greatest upgrades to the original OpenRPG software. After having just tested out the early stages of his newest OpenRPG --> Traipse rebuild, I have to admit, I'm quite impressed.
The new software, which is currently working under the development name OpenCartographer, is the next evolution of the original OpenRPG code base. The first thing I noticed on downloading a pre-Alpha version was that OpenCartographer will boast a much cleaner, trimmer interface. It still features the old familiar Game Tree on the left, but it also has added an additional area for characters called the Character Tree beneath that.
The old top menu has been replaced by a shiny Icon Menu that will include some of the most often used functionality like the new Map Toolbox, Grid Control, Special Effects like Light and Dark areas and more.
