Software for creating printable hex maps.
What is Crawlspace?
Crawlspace is two things:
- A library written in C# to make it easy to generate hex maps programmatically.
- An app that provides an easy to use UI for generating maps
- Hex maps for any paper size
- Choose the size, colour, and line weight of hexes
- Automatic labelling of hexes using X,Y co-ordinates (customizable font and font size)
- Print maps centred on any co-ordinate
- Multiple hex "layers", allowing you to create regional hexes and sub-hexes

How to install
You can download the latest version of the Crawlspace app from
Just unzip it and run
Windows 8, 10 and newer
Everything should just work - hooray!
Windows 7 and older
You may need to install a newer version of the .NET Framework.
Linux and Mac OS
This app is fully tested under Ubuntu 16.10. You just need to install Mono.
sudo apt-get install mono-complete. You will then be able
to run the app at the command line using
mono /path/to/Crawlspace.exe &.
It should also work under Mac OS using Mono, but I know less about this.
