Tangent Zero logo Hex Map Generator
Hex Gen is designed to create a variety of hexagon map patterns using text. I've been facinated by this simple method for a long time. It's surprisingly flexible and can be imported into docs, spread sheets, and even graphics editors.

What can you do with it? Well, text is certainly the most basic of data formats which makes it very portable. The first time I used this format was on an IBM Selectric typewriter in order to make mimeographs hex maps for role playing games (AD&D and Metamorphosis Alpha.) Hex crawls are still alive and well in gaming. War game players and map makers can make notes and scribble down their plans/orders. If you're wanting to hack the Tactical Command or Frozen Thunder DAT system, this is one place to start. You can also use these grids for hex plotting games like Triplanetary as well.

A blank hex map is an invitation to create new maps and campaigns. :-)
