    Map maker suitable for making miniatures/terrain tiles

    I am an old school gamer getting back into running a Star Wars RPG (WEG, not the WOTC version), but I will be using miniatures frequently. Which map/cartographer applications can make makes maps suitable for use with WOTC's Star Wars miniatures?

    I am really looking for a tile based mapping program where I can just drop and rotate various tiles to create science fiction style maps.

    I would probably take a look at Dundjinni for that.

    Wondering what the Dungeon Tiles are like? Take a look here.

    Seconded. But be aware that the Dundjinni website is currently down while they switch to a new server.
    Battlegrounds: RPG Edition is new virtual tabletop software that allows you to play any RPG online or offline. It's cross-platform and very easy to use.

    Thanks to both of you. I kinda figured that would be the best choice. I also looked at Tiamat from RPGObjects since it uses the tiles from Skeleton Key games.

    Now if someone could take the map images from the old West End Games books and make them into tiles for Dundjinni, then my job would be even easier.

    5+ years out of the hobby and now I'm scrambling for tools to make my life easier. Really sux when there aren't tools to support the systems I like to play.

    You could also try the Galaxy Tiles, though they are really limited, because there was only ever a single set of them.



    But maybe they are still useful.
