Imperial Assault Map Creator

Recommended Posts


Today I found something really interesting.

IA MAP Creator on Booardgamegeek

It still can be polished a bit, but this is something I've been waiting for a long time.
IAMapCreator's work and s/he deserve all the credit!

That is all :)

Thank you very much for your initiative.
As you offer the opportunity to contact you in your help file, I do it!
As I am not an english native my english is not perfect.
So I apologize of this.
In fact, I have some wishes in order to improve your tool and make it easier to use.
1°) - It would be great to be able to select an already posed map component (many step before the actual one on order to make it become red again): to move (Tile/Pixel), delete, rotate.
Without this, it is quite frustrating to put a piece of the map, to place another piece and say: "Oh I would like to delete the 
previous piece of map"...But I can not!
Note: in the help it was written:
"Once you add more tiles to the map, you can select between different tiles by clicking on their respective name in the Tiles selector view."
But that does not work....
2°) - It is not very easy to place with keyboard a new piece of the map.
I'm french and my keyboard AZERTY is not very efficient with the keys: A,W,D,S. The arrows on the right would be easier to use for move the tiles for everyone however keyboard used.
i.e: Azerty keyboard extract:
a: left
d: right
s: down
w: up
3°) - The biggest problem for me comes from the uncapability to zoom where I want (+ or -).
In fact, if I try to do big maps, I am rapidely blocked because I can not go to the part of the map that have an interest for me (down & right as an example).
In fact, at present, zoom is always center on the upper left corner of the windows whatever I try to do...
If I want to add new piece of the map on the right I am bound to work with a dezoom map and it is quite difficult to connect precisely two pieces of the map in such mode because pieces are very very small.
4°) - In the video, you show the capability to set the Background to different colour even to use the invisible possibility.
But the version 1.3 seems not allow this. I have downloaded it from:
Is it the right site   and the last version ?
Thank you very much for all the time you spent making this tool usable. And so, help to prevent the excellent game "Imperial Assault" from dying.
Kindest regards,

If 64dpi is good enough, you can also use the Vassal Imperial Assault Campaign module to build maps.


Edit: it's not Ace_of_Spades' app, just reported it here. See the information in the BGG link provided.

Thank you @a1bert !

Sorry for the misunderstanding ! @Ace_of_Spades

@a1bert , I need some help !

I have juste downloaded the Vassal files from The BGG page !

And I open the 1.11 module (because there is a save file for this version).









But the screen remains desperately empty...

How to download an existing map ?

Can you help me ?
