[nbos] [FM8] Before it's too late ...
"Mark Oliva"
Sun Aug 7th, 2011
A year ago, on August 6, 2010, the Dundjinni (R) mapping product was taken
off the market "temporarily." It never has returned, and the Dundjinni
folks have posted on their website that it is uncertain when it will return
(if, indeed, ever).

This is significant to all FM8 users because the Dundjinni forums are the
only true central point in the Internet for downloading free raster symbols
(Dundjinni objects) and fill patterns (Dundjinni textures). There are
thousands upon thousands of excellent quality symbols and fill patterns
there. With one exception, they work just as well in FM8 as in Dundjinni.
Only the Dundjinni fill patterns with transparent backgrounds (a small part
of what's available) do not work properly in FM8.

Anyone here who has been intending to do a big download operation but who
hasn't gotten around it yet might be well advised to get in gear. For a
year now, someone has been paying the bills for the Dundjinni website
without getting any new income to balance the costs. Twice in the last
year, the Dundjinni site has been down for extended periods. In view of
these circumstances, it's quite conceivable that the Dundjinni website might
simply vanish overnight one day. One hopes not, but one can't count on it
surviving.

Let's hope that a word to the wise will be sufficient. The address:

http://www.dundjinni.com/forums/default.asp

There you'll find an overwhelming amount of material ... not just standard
fantasy RPG fare but also almost anything you need for modern and sci-fi
mapping with FM8.
