Wild West Map Builder FAQs

Do I need the internet to use Arkenforge?

You will only need the internet the first time you log in, and to authenticate any future content pack purchases. Once you’ve done that, you can use Arkenforge offline as long as you like!

Do I need to pay a subscription fee every month?

No! Arkenforge will never be locked behind a subscription paywall. All features of the software will always be available with a single purchase.

What content themes does Arkenforge sell?

We have mapping and audio assets for four major themes:

  • Fantasy

  • Cyberpunk

  • Space

  • Post-Apocalyptic

  • Wild West

We’re consistently releasing new content packs, and if there’s a theme you’d like to see explored, don’t hesitate to let us know!

I have maps and assets from Patreon/DriveThruRPG/etc. Can I use them with Arkenforge?

You certainly can! Arkenforge supports files in the following formats:

  • Images (Max. size – 16k pixels)

    • JPG

    • PNG

    • WEBP

Why would I choose Arkenforge over other map builders?

There’s a few features we have that may cause you to choose us over other map building software

  1. Animated map making. Any content can have custom animation effects added, including custom assets!

  2. Infinite map size. Build your maps as large as your compute can handle.

  3. Import as many of your own custom assets as you like. The only limit is your hard drive space!

Does Arkenforge support non-square grids?

It does! We have full support for both Hex and Isometric grids.

Our grids aren’t just overlays. Any snap-to-grid functionality will work correctly based on the grid type you have selected.

What accessibility features does Arkenforge have?

Arkenforge is designed with accessibility in mind. We’ve added in a few handy features that will help you enjoy Arkenforge, regardless of your level of ability.

  • Recolouring: All text and buttons in Arkenforge can be recoloured to ensure all UI is as clear as possible

  • UI resizing: Our UI scales from 75% to 150% size.

  • OpenDyslexic font: All text can be changed to OpenDyslexic to help with readability

  • UI Audio prompts: Sounds for various UI actions can be toggled on or off.

  • Double click timing: Mouse double click timing can be adjusted for those who aren’t able to double click at high speed.

  • Click and drag threshold: For those without great fine motor control, you can increase the distance before something is considered ‘dragged’. This can prevent unwanted content links.

  • Middle click functions: A single middle click can be treated as a ‘click + hold’ toggle. This is useful for those who aren’t able to hold a mouse button down for a prolonged length of time.

If you have additional accessibility requirements that we don’t currently cater for, please let us know so that we can add them in!

Are there tutorials available?

There certainly are!
