    I am not sure why the dot didn't turn yellow for you. It's possible that I have an older version of Sketchup and it's just a weird little quirk between the two versions. Glad that you got that part figured out.

    Thanks for the clarification on step 4. I'll edit the tutorial.

    Glad it worked out for you.

    Ok I am finished - I 3D'd a map I had made a while ago of some catacombs. It worked really well I think. Now to work out how to make a cool video like you...

    The dot did turn yellow once I had clicked 'import as texture' by the way.

    oh wow!

    I love the top detail. How did you do it? Was it a texture or did you play with it in photoshop / gimp?

    Videos are easy.

    Just find whatever position you'd like to start off with (overhead shot or something) and click View/Animation/Add Scene. Now move the map around until you find another position that you like and add another scene.

    I usually try and make a 'walk through' video.

    Once you're done click File/Export/Animation.

    Good luck!

    Next time - maybe. Considering it took me an entire week to work out how to make a youtube account (who knew it could be so hard) and upload and then link a video, I'm pretty thrilled I even got this far.

    great video bud.

    Now admit it - how many of your old dungeon maps have you mentally sorted into the "could be a 3-D map" and "Will be a 3-D map"?

    Glad ya had fun with it.

    That's really cool! The 3D map itself was interesting, but the walkthrough video you posted was incredible. I think I have sketch-up on my other computer, I will have to go check it out now.

    I experimented with this a few years ago, creating blocks (10'x10' section of hallway, floor, doors, archways) that I could assemble into a dungeon. Spent a few days on it, but wasn't fully satisfied with the results and haven't gone back to it. Had some issues with dimensions that I couldn't resolve at the time, but I was likely too hung up on using the grid.

    I think the file is on my older computer; it doesn't seem to be on this one. I'll look for it.
