Subject: [FT][Campaigns] 3D Map viewer/range-finder

I've recently finished a 'Homeworld'-style 3D Map viewer, which forms
basis of a campaign client/server campaign turn generator/processor, for
automatically processing turns using Paul Radfords full thrust campaign
rules (available from
this map program can be used with any campaign rules.

The map can be rotated/zoomed in the same way as the PC game
systems are grouped together in races/affiliations by colour. You can
on one system and shift-click on another to get the distance between
them in
lightyears, so you can calculated how long it takes forces to travel

I've included an example map, but creating your own maps is only a
of editing a text file. The program is freeware, but all the details and
instructions are included in the zipfile, which is available from:

Please try it, and let me know what you think and feel free to e-mail me
with any suggestions for modification.
