Free tools (both gaming and non) that gamers need.
« on: April 20, 2009, 05:48:14 AM »
Thanks to Delta for popping up an old topic that reminded me to do this.

I'm making a sticky that I'll keep up-to-date as I find (or am told of) things that can be used by gamers to make things for they're games. etc.

I'll post more as I have time but to get things started:

The grand daddy of free stuff and probably one of the most useful is Open Office:

  • Open Office
    What it is: A full office suite of programs a la Microsoft Office.
    Why you need it: Can read and write Microsoft files. Allows you to make PDF's!
    Do I use it?: Yes, I don't even have MS Office installed... no point.
  • Inkscape
    What it is: A vector drawing program like Xara X or Corel Draw
    Why you need it: Vector drawings are completely scalable. Explaining it is beyond this article so go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vector_graphics
    Do I use it?: No, I bought Xara X, it remains one of my favorite applications.
  • GIMP
    What it is: A Raster(Bitmap) drawing program like Photoshop
    Why you need it: Everyone needs a paint program. Even if it's just for cleaning up and resizing pictures.
    Do I use it?: No, I own Photoshop CS3. I have installed it on lots of machines though. Warning! If you know photoshop, the interface differences will drive you nuts.

More later.

Great blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I
