These are some table and chair presets that I made. Most of the chairs are from pictures I took and the tables are wood textures I Photoshopped into tables.

Do you prefer the tables empty or do you like them with plates cups and food on them?

I have a lot more of this kind of preset elements for battlemaps, if you are interested please let me know.

These look really good, thanks for posting! Do you have examples of a chair fully exposed rather than being partly under the table? Have some rep!

It's great to see you and some of the others among us who post at the Dundjinni forums here. As I've mentioned before, with Dundjinni itself being out of business at present, there always is the danger that the forums one day might vanish. The guild here is a good alternative, if and when that happens.

Thanks, glad you like them. Yes I have these and many other chairs and tables by themselves. Here are a nice selection of chairs and a few tables for you. The jpg pic is just a sample sheet of everything in the ZIP file. I made all the tables from wood textures, mostly from cgTextures.com. The chairs are all real chairs I took pictures of. You are free to use them as you wish.

These were intended to be used as sarcophagi, but they could just be very fancy chests.

These look really good. Are most of them public domain, or CC licensed or something like that ?

Bogie
12-20-2011, 02:36 AM
Depends on how specific you want to get.
The chairs are all real chairs that I took pictures of and then edited. So they are 100% my work and you are welcome to use them as you wish.
The tables, chests, house, and sarcophagi all started as some type of picture or texture on cgTextures.com and were photoshopped by me into the objects I posted. For example, three of the chests were made from pictures of medieval doors to which I added hinges and corners and engravings to make them into chests.
You should check the EULA on cgTextures to see how it applies to this. I believe they are free to use as long as they are part of a larger picture or map and are not used in a video game.
The bars and weapons tables are all made by me using smaller Items posted on Dundjinni and therefore free to use as desired.
BUT I am no expert in copyright law, this is just my personal opinion.

BTW, Thanks, glad you like them!

I must say that I am new to the entire cartography scene (this is my first post), and stumbling upon this topic was a blessing. Your work is phenomenal, even if you are just taking textures and turning them into objects. I can't quite afford Photoshop yet, but plan on getting it in the future, but have been using GIMP for the time being. Any pointers for a newcomer?

As for the EULA question Redrobes asked about, the cgTextures.com site has a section under About concerning the licensing. As I was reading the licensing info, it seems that you can use the textures for personal and commercial use, except that you cannot resell the textures as is; they must be modified to fit a model and cannot be sold as a texture pack. Direct link to their license info: http://cgtextures.com/content.php?action=license

Bogie

These are all items I took pictures of and then photoshopped. They are free to use as you wish.

You sir, are a sharing machine. I'll have to scope out more on the forum and spread some rep just so I can come back and rep you again. (though I may have to send you a bill for all the cardstock you've made me use) lol.

Bogie
01-07-2012, 03:48 AM
I like seeing my stuff get used in maps, I can handle the cardstock as long as you don't expect reimbursement for the ink.:P
Thank you and Atpollard for the Rep.

Can you imagine the Vault that key might open!

Thanks Mateus!

Heh...well.... honestly, in my existing 4E game, I have FOUR such keys, made of ummm platinum or adamantium(or something). The campaign started in a dwarven city(underdark) where the players have been for over 1000 years(well..the players themselves have not been around that long) and in the end, they have to find 4 keys(they have found one, the others are still missing but they have some leads), clear out the "road", and open the gates to topside.

These are amazing, Bogie. Is all of this done in Photoshop, or do you start with a 3D model of some sort? The bridges and houses especially have so much depth!

Bogie
04-10-2012, 01:58 PM
Thanks, all done in Photoshop by editing texture photos (most are from cgTextures.com, items from the DundJinni Forums or pictures I've taken. )

Bogie

Glad you guys are liking this stuff. Not sure about doll houses, kind of the other way around. I often take pictures of real and miniature furniture to make mapping objects, and I assemble the objects into presets so people can make better maps faster.

You've been making some incredible map elements here, Bogie! I am tempted to make a map just for the purpose of populating it with as many of these as I can (within reason).

Hmmm. It seems like something's wrong here. The first two symbols in my download are identical in size (and probably all other respects), both being 256 x 183 pixels in size. In addition, all four symbols seem to be in something of a mini-scale. In Dundjinni or CC3, for instance, the first two buildings would have a scale size of 6,4 x 4,6 feet. That might just be enough for a child's playhouse.

Mark, I think that is because you are downloading the thumbnails. Click on each of the four roof thumbnails one by one and save the resulting original-sized image to your desktop.

Bogie, those roofs are fantastic.

Bogie
07-26-2012, 06:55 PM
Thanks Jack, glad you like them.

Mark: Like jack said those are just the thumbnails. Most of the items In the post are just thumbnails so you might want to go back through the whole thread and re-download the full size items again.

Great work. I am very thankfull for all your effort. One question... how do you guys organize these symbols? What folder structure do you use? I am having a hard time to come up with a +- intuitive structure.

Bogie
08-21-2012, 02:13 AM
Since I mostly use these in DundJinni, I organize them around the program's file structure, but there is a lot of leeway. I find that the more directories i have the easier it is to find things.
So instead of one big floor directory I have Floor-Brick, Floor-Dirt, Floor Fancy, Floor-Grass, Floor Rock, Floor-Tile, Floor-Water, Floor Wood.
For Furniture I have Furniture-Beds, Furniture-Chairs, Furniture-Chests, Furniture-Crates-Barrells, Furniture-Misc, Furniture-Shelves-Bureaus, Furniture-Tables,

Every Town square needs a fountain pool to provide water to the locals and water for their horses.



how did you do the curved stones? very smooth especially on the white marble one

Bogie
08-28-2012, 11:26 AM
Most of these objects are photos that either I took myself or downloaded from a texture site like cgTextures.com. I then edit them in photoshop to get the look and format that I want. The white marble fountain is actually a pic of a stained glass church window, courtesy of cgTextures. The darker fountain with the statue in the center is the same picture. A couple of the others are door archways, copy flip paste add water and now you have a pool.

Nice work on the farmhouses.

This is t he original photo for the marble fountain.

Ah, that's why that sounded familiar, I have seen them. Nice work.

It's Friday, time to post something new. I have been trying to work with layers in photoshop. This set of shelves was made by IronDwarf. He posted the psd file with the layers all set up. I just had to put new layers in between his to be able to put objects on the shelves. I figured that out and it came out OK so I am going to post that as today's offering. Hope you like it.

As I mentioned this original psd file is the work of IronDwarf, a DundJinni member from a couple years ago. He did not post any restrictions on the use of his art, but he should be credited if is is used in any significant way. He did post the psd so that anyone could use it and make new shelves.

There are 2 psd files, the one I used and a lighter one.

Your getting the grasp of it good bogie.. Keep plugging away, You should see one of my encounter maps that I have everything on lol.. Most times if it is a simple map, I have 20-30 layers.. Thank god for groups ;) or I would be lost.. But as the map progresses I flatten layers of like items, it saves on memory, space and keeps it more streamlined for when I revisit them..

Bogie
10-04-2012, 02:06 AM
Thanks guys. I made the overlay about a year ago but I smudged the edge of each stair shadow to give the steps a more worn look which matched the rough stone texture better. After I put the overlay on the stone texture I added other shadows to give it more sense of depth.

Thanks Anomiecoalition.

Jacktannery wanted some castle stuff so I made this turret, though I'm not sure if it will match his style.

Thanks guys, glad you like.

Was busy trying to finish my map for the October Challenge so I didn't get a post in last night, BUT here is one of the preset mapping elements I made for that map.

The Interrogation table

And a demo of how it looks on a stone floor:

Jack was looking for some floor tiles for his castle so I'm posting these to see if any of them work. They are all in 5ft = 1 inch = 200 px jpg format. They all form 5' x 5' tiles on a 25' x 25' floor. The last one, Floor-108, is for Non-Commercial only. The others should be Ok

Thanks, glad you are finding them useful.

Here is a new preset. Table & chairs all set up for either adventure planning or dividing the loot after. I made a basic version that is just the furniture and a fully loaded one.

JTougas's docks in his Mapping Elements thread reminded me I made some docks a couple years ago. I should post them here in case anyone can use them.

Thanks JT! The ones I posted a few years ago on DJ Forums were a little smaller. These are a bit larger and more detailed.

Since it is Friday and I feel the need to post something, I am posting these windows with shutters that I made for you. I also posted them on your Dark Meeting thread.
I combined some shutters made by Heruca ( the owner of Battlegrounds VTT ) with some window special effects I made and came up with these windows.
They are made to paint on top of a wall:

Here is how they look in action on JTougas's ship hull wall.
