Since (for now at least) I won't be developing Battlegrounds Ultimate, I'm switching gears to work on a completely new project.
It's going to be cross-platform map-making software (for Windows and macOS), suitable for creating both print-resolution maps and lower res VTT-usable maps. Sort of a spiritual successor to Dundjinni, but with a greater focus on stitching maps together from pre-existing map tiles and then customizing the resulting map (with additional decorations, etc.) to suit your particular needs.
In late January or early February 2017, I'll be launching a Kickstarter campaign to try to fund the program's development. The program should appeal to GMs of face-to-face game sessions and those using any VTT software, who want to create their own slick-looking battlemaps but who find existing mapping programs (including image-editing tools such as Gimp and Photoshop) too intimidating/confusing/expensive. My program will be priced to be very accessible/affordable, likely in the $20-$25 range (at least during the Kickstarter campaign).
I'm going to post about this on various RPG-related sites to try and gauge public interest. But there's no reason we can't start here. Please let me know if such software would be of interest to you.
