Today we have launched our new marketplace, where you can purchase additional props, textures and game assets for the online battlemap editor. And since the marketplace is also available to free users, this release comes with powerful changes for free users as well.
The marketplace comes with many new shinies!
Please note: To access your purchased assets, your maps need to be at version 5 (V5). The old V3 editor does not support the new marketplace integration.
What has changed for free accounts?
Why are marketplace assets sold separately?
The monthly asset packs we release as part of our content subscription are produced in house and we fully own the rights for distribution as part of our subscription. Asset packs from external artists however are still under the intellectual property of the artist and we can’t just include them in our content subscriptions.
Hence we have worked with several artists like Caeora and Forgotten Adventures to create a business model, that allows us to sell those asset packs through our marketplace in addition to the asset packs we release in our content subscription.
Do I still need a subscription?
DGNFOG Premium (as subscription or OnDemand) gives you access to all premium features, removes the map slot limits and includes all monthly prop packs that have been, or will be released as part of our content subscription. In addition to that, PREMIUM users will get a discount on all purchases in the marketplace as well.
To see all benefits for premium users please go here.
What purchase options do I have?
We have done our best to make the marketplace as flexible as possible.
And while not all options are available from start, we will slowly unlock them over the next weeks*:
*Please note that each artist can decide what license models are available per pack.
How does this affect public maps?
Maps that include marketplace assets can still be shared publicly. If you clone a map that includes mp-assets, that you do not own yourself, those assets will be watermarked for you and you will see a reference to the asset pack in the marketplace.
