    What do you think I should add ? It has to be prominent and look good from above as thats what I am concentrating on for the 2D map. Lots of people would be nice... and totally impossible with my setup & lack of character models.

    Sod the good looking from above! Tallow candles on the tables, a few wargs in the corner, by a roaring fire! A rack with weapons upon it, dirty rugs or sawdust, a few barrels dripping ale, a spit with roasting meat upon the fire....that sort of thing.

    Yeah I was afraid you say something like that

    Candles I could model in a flash - quick lathe job easy. But you would want them lit right ? Well this app seems to go progressively slower for each light source. I happen to have a dogs head here ! (Labrador I think... mneh ! Vicious killer labradors anyone ????). I wonder if I could dig that out and make a plaque for it and mount it on the wall ? Giant beat t'wer (naturally). Weapons do look great in 3D but rarely so from above - I know I know but its all the effort... rugs I was going to do for the other rooms in the top down view. And sawdust ? This aint no spit n sawdust joint y'know...

    I'll see what I can do. Getting late again tho.

    Yeeeeeessss !!! I never chuck anything out. A LLLong (x 10^6) time ago I made a 3D model of a lizard man and it still exists ! Hah hah.... Right ass kickin'.

    How about stuffed lizard man heads along a wall with saber tooth labradors - ugh, I mean saber toothed hell hounds - yeah !

    Ole Brian shall be resurrected to march for glory once more.

    Oh check that out. Bit ropey old texture map there - might have to put a new paint job on him what with newer tools. CPU when I did this was probably a 486. Magic. LOL.

    Of course my favorite bit is the scale of the Haskwood Canifers, massive and eld, looks like a place Lemur and Bumblemouse would come together to catch up over a good steeped pot of Shorn Tea, you do keep a kettle on, don't you, for discerning guests..
    Absolutely grand, as Wallace says.

    SeerBlue is me, but more importantly the Four Happy Carpet Orcs +2 (FHCO +2) are Lizzy (BumbleMouse, 16), Race (Raith Eliathy, 11), Roy (Ol' Horsehair, 9), and Lena Marie (Lemur, 6) Kimi (Whurm,2), and Sachiko (MoMo,1)
    All creative inspiration is theirs, from characters to maps to tells, I only fill in the details.

    You should like this next pic then. This is from the table under the bowl. Put some refractive index on so it should have looked better - I think it does but it still does not look like great glass. Anyway, this is for any player who says - Whats that in the middle...

    Ok for the outside and plan views again. Here are the base maps for the 2 levels + roof for putting it into a city map. You can use the 3 maps in conjunction in a VTT by using the roof as a kind of fog of war. Lift off the roof when you want to go inside.

    Will be looking for ideas about what to put in the blank rooms. I think the 'Alcoves' set would probably have very little in them. A few benches maybe and a table. The 'Proprietors quarters' needs filling out a bit tho. Will put some straw and horses in the stables too.

    Love the fireflys, oddly enough it fits well with a tell I wrote for Lemur and Bumblemouse, which needed a home, so I moved some of it to a forest of Haskwood Canifers after you started your thread,,,,in the tell there is a bit of fluorescence, though it be the Naim that flouresce, I will post it to Snapgallows when it is done being polished, or close enough.

    It's moving along great, I am amazed at the little details, like the edge of the bar,,sweet.

    Figuring out what bits of detail for character is a bit of a job isn't it, every ale house or tavern needs some tankards and kegs, and perhaps a scalieskin rug.
