Note: Worldographer: (aka Hexographer 2) replaces Hexographer. It has all the features of Hexographer, plus better shape editing, better configuration, upgraded UI, true child maps, world data ganeration, undo/redo, cut/copy/paste and much more. And it too has a free version.
The free & pro versions are the same download… the license key code activates the additional pro features.
You can get the program in any of several different ways. The software is written in Java, but we now native build it for Windows 7+ and Mac OSX 10.7+.
- An .exe setup file for Windows that DOES NOT REQUIRE JAVA. Download this, unzip it and click to run it. We’re still testing this, so please send feedback to support at inkwellideas dot com. Powered By Excelsior JET.
- A zipped .app file/folder for Mac OSX that also DOES NOT REQUIRE JAVA. In order to use it you do need to temporarily change your security settings to install/open unsigned apps, then reset the security setting.
- A .jar file that you simply double-click to run. It will prompt you to ask for an amount of memory to use. You will need java installed first to run it.
- A simple .jar file for expert users. You’ll want to start it with the command line “java -jar -Xmx2000M hexographer.jar” (You can replace the 2000M with higher amounts of memory.)
