I wonder if Dyson of the website where I found the two maps posts on here.
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.
what...no narration??? jk...awesome stuff

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.
