I'm working on a town/area map for my table-top D&D game... I've googled my bootie off looking for top-view structures. Found some for a program I don't have. I'm using Photoshop CS3.

Any help is much appreciated. Clip art would be awesome. A quick tute on how to create my own would be even awesome-er.

Thanks!

Rita

Well in the 24 hours there has been some discussion about free textures, symbols and objects in the following thread: http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=6381
You probably can use those in photoshop also, as most of them are in common image type formats. You can find them in http://www.vintyri.com ,the ones for dundjinni should probably work.

You can also check the Dundjinni forums (http://dundjinni.com/forums/default.asp), lots of great stuff there as well most of it user submitted and free to use.

What you need is the CSUAC. It's an enormous, free collection of symbols:
http://www.gmsapprentice.com/

It contains hundreds of topdown structures.

According to the greetings post

Please register/login to access the downloads here

So I assume you must create an account to access it.

Indeed.
You need to register (it's free) and then when you login you get access to the downloads.

I did make an account, but still couldn't access anything. :(

That website's interface isn't the best for sure...

Make sure you are logged in and on the homepage. You will see a tag "Popular" above the main text.
Click on the link "The CSUAC" under that tag (it will only appear if you are logged in). You will then go to a page where you can download all parts of the CSUAC.

I just tried it and it works.

That site isn't operational anymore... any chance that someone who did dl that pack could rehost it? Pretty please?

Someone might PM you but there was a restriction about hosting the files so nobody can do that any more. Its a textbook case of why we should be using creative commons licenses rather than proprietary or restrictive licenses for these sorts of things. I can see torrent links for it but I would rather see the original owner either host it or state that someone else can do so. I'm darn sure we would host it here if we were allowed to. In lieu of that you must go to the Dundjinni forums and grab all the bits you need piecemeal or set up a campaign for them to zip up all their stuff off their forums and host it.

Azhrei is working with Cecil( I think thats his name) who owned GMsApprentice (and collected/categorized all of the art) to try to see if the files can be hosted permanently on the RPTools site. Of course, this may not actually happen, just something being worked on.

Cecil Solomon is the person who used to run GM's Apprentice.
