Don't want to step on toes posting stuff on your thread...but I needed a standing sarcophogus and couldn't find anything that really fit the bill anywhere else. Figured I would try to make one before asking you if you had any. So, I modified a statue I found on Dunjinni. I don't think its particularly great, but I'm hoping it at least looks like a standing sarcophogus.

Here's one with a slight color mod:

Nice, I like it! My only comment would be that I would expect the sarcophagus to be a little thicker to hold a body.

Once again it is Friday Night. Back on post 77 I posted a bunch of snakes. Tonight I have Snakes in a Box!
I can only take credit for putting these images together. The snakes are from an educational site and the boxes were posted on Dundjinni by Totte, RKelleg and IronDwarf.

"Hendal, the fearless young adventurer, rushed to the first box in the treasure room hoping to find great wealth. Ripping open the lid he found slithering death instead."

A large stack of crates, boxes, barrels, and bags to fill up your warehouse with. And buried somewhere in the pile is a box of snakes and a creepy clown!

I tried a new method for making the stairs. It is very time consuming so not sure if I will make any more this way.
Let me know what you think.

In my opinion this is really great. Is there a possibility to automate any steps in the way you did this or are there any parts you could use to speed up the future stairs? I'm asking this because this is better than any of the ways I have tried in the past.

Jacktannery
12-13-2012, 03:27 AM
Those look great Bogie. Very nice granite texture.

atpollard
12-13-2012, 11:28 AM
Is it possible to turn off the granite?
I only ask because the shadows on a transparent or white background could then be overlaid on any background material to create and endless variety of new stairs.
The effect of shadows getting darker and wider as the stair descends is terriffic.

Unfortunately no. I built this the way real circular stairs are built, by adding one step on top of the next just rotated in 10 deg steps and a slight increase in overall darkness as I added each step.

Decided to take another shot at the stairs with a wood texture. This time I made both up and down stairs.

Jacktannery
12-18-2012, 03:36 AM
Great tables. The wooden steps don't work as well as the granite ones. This is because your shadow layer appears to be set to 'overlay' which deepens and enrichens the shadows rather than turning them black. As a result it is hard to tell what's going on with the second set of stairs. Also the perfectly-rounded edge to the steps looks wrong on the wood (though I understand the steps are intended to be inserted into a circular stairwell). Nice wood grain though.

Bogie, thanks for all the great images... amazing!

Do you have in your library any images of curtains/tapestries? I'm trying to make a dungeon map and one of the rooms should have red curtains lining the interior walls but I haven't been able to find anything suitable. I tried to make my own but they looked pathetic to be honest.

Thanks again!

A couple years ago we toured the recreation of Columbus's ship the Nina. On board they had a model of the ship during construction. I took some pics and edited them in Photoshop.
Maybe they will be useful to someone.

Here's a simple wall I made. Should be able to chop it up easy enough. Textures are from one of the sites you mentioned :D.

51466


*Edit

I could of textured the right and left side for added realism. Didn't think of it until just now. Will catch it later when I've got more time.
I also left the strokes bold, I like the way it makes the object kick.

After seeing some of your work, I'm motivated to get down on some serious texturing. Though, some of the angles you can hit while texturing are crazy, such as on your houses. I'd love to see the PDF of them.

Nice work Chargeit.

Did you mean you would like to see the Photoshop PSD file? If so, I don't really know what I'm doing with Photoshop and I usually just throw stuff together and play with it till I like how it looks. Lots of trial and error - cut and paste. I don't often think of saving the .psd file, just the png file at the end.

Lots of trial and error - cut and paste. I don't often think of saving the .psd file, just the png file at the end.

;) I've got to the point where I keep all my base PSD. I have a very bad habit of making resources inside of my PSD files.

Thanks btw, I could do better with the wall, lol, I'm a resource slacker. I'll start up making resources, and almost always find a reason to start on something else. Which makes yours 1000% kick butt. That and the fact I have almost no artistic talent.

I put together a map using some of your resources. I sell them as VTT maps (For cheap!), but would love to give you a copy. It's simple compared to what I'd like to do, sadly, my computer is very much a limiting factor in what I can do with editing.

Lol, giving you something that is yours :D. I did put about 10 hours of work into it though, with more than a little nitpicking.

Your light resources pawned btw. I accidentally pasted one onto my light layer and it worked like a charm (Was just going to use them as decorations and do the lighting myself). Saved me a ton of work.

Very nice, I'll grab them up. I'm going to try and make some new dungeon tiles myself. If they come out any good I'll post. :D I'm not allowed to post anything I put up on DriveThruRPG. MSG me with your email and I'll send you a coupon for a free copy (Can send 500 copys a month). Until than, I will post this single room. It is also up on DriveThruRPG, but I set it up as a free sample room.
It's pretty simple, looked good when I tried it out in roll20. Also, I don't like too much clutter. Lol, you can see where I put your buddha into one of your fountains. I Tossed some water in his bowl as well.

The cover, shows the full map at low res. Simple, but plenty of play area free of clutter, also added some sweet secret areas. Decided against putting anything in them, figured it would be best for the GM to decide what would be found.

Thanks man. Lol, it loses a lot once you drop the grid though. It is amazing how much a grid makes a map fill out. Oh well, makes peoples VTT life easier.

Some simple tiles. I'm not doing any lighting and the such. Save that for in use. I'm just making different versions, messing around. Will keep this PDF. Used that tile tutorial on this site, slightly modded. I'm not that great with Gradient Overlays, and I don't really like it for a lot of effects.

*snagged* Thank you! :)

Korash
03-04-2013, 10:58 AM
I do love these!!

One thing though, and believe me it is a minor thing because I only noticed it after looking at the roofs for the 4th or 5th time, but the mildew pattern is repeating. Can you maybe make the pattern larger with more blotchyness or something like that? like I said, minor pickyness, but I was looking at them trying to figure out how to do something like this for a round thatched roof for a hut.

Bogie
03-04-2013, 12:56 PM
Thanks Neyjour & Korash, glad you like them.

@Korash, you are correct. there is a repeating pattern because the roofs were made using a seamless tile from cgTextures. I tried to change the pattern, but the image is so detailed that I just introduced new errors. I am sure that someone with the proper Photoshop skills could manage it, but I could not.

Neyjour
03-04-2013, 02:08 PM
Here's some "Deep Swamp" mods I made. You can add little clumps of grasses, reeds, moss, rotting leaves, and some vines to give them an even more swampy/jungle look. :)

There is nothing more to say that hasn't already been said. Your karma cup runneth over.

I too am ashamed to ask, but have run into a dead end.

Looking for overhead snow covered tents and old time outposts for an Alaska based map. I also need to scale them down to 20-30px range and still keep some detail. Grayscale option as well would be amazing.

Bogie
03-05-2013, 01:10 AM
There are lots of tents on Dundjinni forums. I made none of them. I have not seen any snow covered ones either. But to uphold my nice guy rep, I tried to photoshop a couple for you.
As said in prior post, my artistic skill with photoshop is limited, so no masterpieces here.

I have 2 tents that I added snow, turned greyscale and reduced size. 30 px is not a usable size, nothing but little splotches. At 100px you can at least see what they are.

I have 2 tents that I added snow, turned greyscale

<SNIP>



I looked at these tents and was quite puzzled for a bit. Then I realized that your work was exactly right. The original Dundjinni forum tents are "Boy Scout" style tents with the tops or roofs going all the way down to the ground.

That made me start thinking about doing some different mods. From the museum tents that I've seen here in Europe or the many paintings I've seen of encampments in the Middle Ages, many tents here appear to have had sides any where from 2 feet to 32 inches/60 to 80 cm high, rather than having roofs that descend directly from the tent's crest to the ground. The mods above give you that type of tent with snow on top.

These tents are not my work. They come from the Dundjinni user forums. The modifications are all that I did. Unlike Bogie, I did not use Photoshop. I did the work with Fractal Mapper 8 and then added that transparent alpha channel layer with Paint.NET.

The scale is 1 foot = 40 Pixels. That's:

1. Exactly right for Dundjinni.
2. Also exactly right for importing in all four resolutions into CC3.
3. Exactly right for copying into the External Objects folder of the free Vintyri Cartographic Collection for FM8. If you're an FM8 user and you don't know what that is, go to:

The Vintyri™ Cartographic Collection (http://www.vintyri.org/vintyri/vccindex_f.htm)

Anyway, for once, I did not find exactly what I desired on Dundjinni.com, so I set up to create my own.


It is a square wooden staircase:

I concur with Bogie.
I too am a bit self-concious, but posting maps here is a great way to get a lot of awesome advices!


Case in point, here is an object I made from scratch for my current battlemap (an ambush site by highwaymen...)


A little mantlet:
53274


But, in my map, the cunning miscreants will have stuck leaves on the object, to help camouflage it from the road...
53275


Anyway, maybe that can useful to somebody...
I will try to post the WIP from the actual battlemap tomorrow, it is fairly simple, to be honest...

Simon33600
04-05-2013, 05:03 AM
So; I went ahead and added a new leafy mantlet (in fact; I split up the various leaves layers over 4 layers, that way I can mix and match them. the actual leaves were cut out from trees I downloaded from Dundjinni, by the way...):
53302

I also made up a sign-post. I don't know if Dundjiunni has them, presumably so...

Very nice. Although, if I had a remark is that some of your proportion seem a bit off... The books in the first one seem a bit big (compare to the ones on the tables) while the buildings in the second one seem a bit too small. I guess that some of the roofs might just be the roofs from stands, but some of the building really look like habitations, and big ones at that with several chimneys, and it really seems like they should be bigger...


I also really like the floor for the first map. Does it also come from this thread? I don't remember seeing it there...

Ringing
04-08-2013, 05:50 PM

Bogie, thanks for all the effort and the amazing pieces.

So...I actually went through the entire thread and downloaded each and every object you submitted. Have you considered consolidating this into a zip file? To be honest, I've already categorized everything into folders on my computer, but this is such an amazing collection, you really should consider "releasing it" out into the wild! lol. Perhaps consider seeding it via torrent...as I've downloaded it, the entire folder is ~190 MB, which is easy compared to the 2GB Mapping Objects torrent linked by the RPTools website, or was that Dundjinni?

Either way...thank you!

I have a lot of wood tiles, but it depends on what you consider a tile. For Dundjinni we use tiles that are 200 pixel by 200 pixels. Let me know if that is what you would use also. If you are looking for larger tiles such as 700 x 700 repeating tiles or just larger wood floors a good place to get those is at CGTextures.com just look under WOOD / PLANKS / FLOORS


The rug was made by Metajock on the Dundjinni Forums you can download it here:

Bogie
09-22-2013, 02:59 AM
It varies from item to item. Of those that I took the picture myself, if a flash was used, it is the one on my camera. Some of the textures, especially the wood textures, are photos I found on cgTextures.com. A lot of items are pictures from antique stores and gift shops. ( drives my wife nuts ). All of the elements were photoshopped in some way by me. I use a lot of inner and outer glow as well as bevel and emboss on the tables.

Glad you like them, hope they are useful to you.

There is no set guideline, and I'm sure everyone feels differently about this issue. For me, if you just use a few of my elements then no recognition is needed. If my stuff is a major part of your map, then a simple acknowledgement is good. Something like: "Many objects by Bogie". I'm not fussy about it, but some people take it very seriously. If in doubt, it is always better to recognize the artist. As for commercial use, I feel about the same, with the exception that you can't just package up my stuff and sell it as is. As part of a map, that's cool. and if you get rich, don't forget me.

Lately I have also been using pre-made thresholds and pasting them over the wall. then I paste the door onto the threshold. or I put the door onto the threshold first and then they both resize at the same time. I also have pre-made windowsills-windows.

I recently took a picture of a carved skull with horns and photoshopped it to be used in mapping.
