It's not useable with TI3, right? If not does somebody know about an alternative for TI3?

It is usable with TI3 which has smaller tiles. It does leave some gaps you may or may not tolerate. But it technically works.

This is correct. The TI4 hexes are slightly larger than the TI3 hexes. So, if you use this particular mat with TI3 you will have some small gaps between your tiles. Otherwise, It should work fine.

Tiles sizes reference:

(photo perspective makes the TI3 tile seem larger, but you can see on the right a TI3 tile on top of a TI4 tile)

But I could scale down the mat a little bit, or not? Can anybody tell me the size of the tiles from TI3 and TI4? Should scaling it down to 98% be okay?

Well, TI4 tiles measure 116mm point-to-point width, and TI3 tiles are 112-113. So, you'd be better off with about 97%. Might work, best of luck

Inked Gaming shouldn't have an issue shipping to Canada. If you check our website (either on the blog post or on the TI4 page), you can find an image made specifically for ordering their 36"x36" Wargaming Mat. Right under the download button is a link to the Inked Gaming product page as well

$60USD for the Mat
$25USD for Shipping

$110 CDN. About twice as much as I really wanted to spend

Might be the best choice though, but I will keep looking.

Oof. That is steep :/ I'm pretty sure it's either free or like $10 USD pretty well anywhere in the US. Sorry about that

Is there any way to increase the size to print onto a larger size mat (I really just need the outside larger, the map can stay the same size)? I want to make a 4x6 size mat with spots for player components indicated on the mat... and maybe make a 4th ring as well.

Not really. The image we've used for the background is already stretched quite a bit beyond its natural resolution. It may be able to be set a bit larger, like we've done with the image for the 36"x36" mat, but certainly not to 4'x6'.

Look looking at it ... there must be some sense on "how" to use it for different games (I don't have my rulebook in front of me)

Not really sure what this means. Different, as in other games besides TI4, or different game modes, or different numbers of players?

We've licensed the image directly with Inked Gaming, so now everyone can order a 36"x36" mat without having to upload an image or anything, for just $45 USD

Inked Gaming has informed us that they'll be having a Black Friday sale. We didn't get "official numbers", but were told it'd likely be around 20-30% off

For our friends outside the US, hopefully this will help ease the shipping costs pains

UPDATE: Confirmed it will be 35% off! Use promo code "Giving17" on Friday

How did you modify the flight stands? I do not like the way they work out of the box, as they are way too wobbly.

We didn't either. We used rubber cement to adhere the legs in place after sanding the ends smooth. Though, it causes them to need a lot more storage space. You may be able to utilize gel super glue as well, but the rubber cement would be a superior option for this particular need because it's more flexible.
