View Full Version : Looking For Gimp Tutorial

04-15-2011, 01:36 PM
I am tryiing to find this old link which used to be on the openrpg forums. Its not there anymore but it was a step by step tutorial on creating a dungeon floor tile using Gimp. It had the image in the thread for each step from beginning to the end. Does anyone recall that link / thread or can they advise a similiar tutorial? I have been looking through the forums and cant seem to find it.

"Dungeon floor tile" - doesn't ring any bells with me. Creating a Dungeon, yes, but not as tiles. Maybe one of the more old timer Gimpers can help :) Perhaps I'm confused by the use of the word 'tile'? We are just wrapping up our Lite Challenge to create a Dungeon tile but it wasn't one that was to be repeated to fill up an entire floor plan. Actually, I guess you could but it would make a weird dungeon...

Maybe if you explain explain what you want to create we can help you better? Just in case nobody can find the tutorial you are looking for.

I may not have phrased it correctly. I am trying to find a step by step guide I had a link for Gimp to create a dungeon map. My PC crashed and lost all of my links. Tks!

The only one I can think of is this one (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?1693-Award-Winner-Painting-Dungeon-Tiles-in-Adobe-Photoshop&highlight=photoshop+dungeon+tile), but it's for photoshop.

There is this one: http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?716-(Photoshop)-Create-a-dungeon-floorplan-in-minutes-(dial-up-killer)

In post 16 I added some gimp instruction.

Is this the one you're looking for? http://istarlome.deviantart.com/art/Creating-a-Floor-Tile-in-Gimp-109966269

It seems to fit your description. I'd love to play more in Gimp myself but not until I get a better ergonomic chair (http://www.ergo4me.com). My current chair is killing me, but I have a nice one being delivered soon (can't wait!). I just don't have the back for graphics work anymore. *Sob*

Or possibly it's this one: http://istarlome.deviantart.com/art/gimp-duneon-mapping-169227126
It's a five page PDF file, "Gimp Dungeon Floor Plans"
