Long time DF owner here. Great little planner, though I'd absolutely LOVE to see it expanded to the full line of DF pieces from the older sets.

It would be ideal as a GM to be able to create a map of a layout, and use it during the game (not only for planning purposes, but while running a mission/game).

I'm tooling around on the mapmaker at work. Looks good. With a few tweaks I'd even pay for a "full" version. Allow you to build a "cabinet" where you could tell the mapmaker what pieces you own...so it would keep track of your stuff virtually.

Really a lot of potential here. Would easily pay $15-20 if it was fully fleshed out. Good stuff.

If the map maker does NOT include all the previous sets, it will be a nice noveltie, but not very useful.

Well, they did say if we hit $1 million the software will get a significant upgrade, and even if it doesn't, they will try to slowly improve it to include previous sets. Eventually, it will get there.

More importantly, even if you wouldn't find it useful with just Game Tiles pieces, you have to keep in mind that many of the people on the Kickstarter are not previous Dwarven Forge customers. The main goal of this Kickstarter is to get new fans and customers, and they are really succeeding at that. That's the reason they are doing the Game Tile pieces first, and I'm sure that tons of people will find a lot of use for it beyond just a "novelty."

I did not try it until to day because it did not include the old resin tiles.
I am hooked!
