Click here to download SWM_MapExplorer (9MB)

SWM_MapExplorer is a Line of Sight tool for Star Wars Miniatures that is based on MapExplorer, written for DDM by Christoph Breitkopf. The program is written in Java and offers several options for checking available LOS.

Simply clicking on a square (indicated by the orange circle in the upper right corner) displays all squares that you have LOS to (provided all doors are opened) as shown below (indicated by the green eye in each available square).

Simply extract SWM_MapExplorer into a directory of your choice (i.e. c:\SWM_MapExplorer for Windows or ~/SWM_MapExplorer for Mac or Linux) and, if you are using Windows, run MapExplorer.bat to use it. If you are running Mac or Linux, simply run the executable mapexplorer file found in your newly created folder (i.e. in Linux, type sh ~/SWM_MapExplorer/mapexplorer).

List of currently included maps:
Cloud City
Crystal Caves of Ilum
Coruscant
Death Star
Echo Base
Freight Transit Station
Geonosis Sith Hangar
Grand Plaza
Mos Eisley
Muun Commerce Plaza
Rancor Pit
Rattatak Arena
Ravaged Base
Starship
Taris Undercity
Teth Monastery
The Lost Temple
Throne Room
Yavin 4 Massassi Temple

Including new maps is a simple as creating a text file and supplying the appropriate image. Maps are being included by the community all of the time and any maps that you wish to include can be added by yourself or others with very little difficulty.

Wow! That looks really nice!

Is there an option for it to show cover as well?

DDM don't have beveled corners so they are just normal corners. and I thought they were not for los only for movement

Pretty sure I tried it on my Mac at home when it first came available for SWM. I might be confused though. Maybe you don't have the right version/settings for Java on your computer perhaps?
