    Those are really nice looking tiles, gameprinter. Are the bitmaps of the floors and walls available online somewhere or did you create those yourself? I wouldn't mind getting my hands on those.

    Jaerdaph, most of these photo textures are from CGTextures.com, though the rock used in the walls of these dungeons were from a site that nolonger exists, but cgtextures has some nice stone textures that will do I'm sure!

    GP

    PS: here's the photo texture for the rock I used in the walls of the dungeons, called "nicerock.jpg"

    Wip The Next 5...

    The next five dungeon tiles are done, that makes, what, twelve, so far? That means I've got 8 more: drainage tiles and cavern tiles, then I'm done. Then tokens... sigh...

    Instead of Catacombs 2 subset, I turned it into Rampart subset (castle-like). Inspired by the Gatehouse in Catacombs 1 (names just to keep me organized.)

    Like my collapsed floor? That finishes the Exotics subset.

    Your a dab hand at these GP. I can see my slippery vote almost jumping into your tick box - but still early days yet. I liked the collapsed floor very much - but then I like all of them really.

    I'm gobsmacked. This is some of your best work to date, GP. It's really clear and really detailed and that's a neat trick to pull off.

    I like them except when I try to overlay a 1" grid on them (using them are being 8" x 10", it doesn't work

    Wip Next five...

    NK, I used a grid to create these tiles. In some cases, I offer very narrow passages only as wide as a doorway. If a PC can fit through a door, then can fit down a passage that is less than 5 feet wide (approx. 3 feet), though I try to mimize use of such narrow passages. Most all other passages were created using 1 inch grid on an 8 x 10 layout.

    "Narrow" meaning you can fit through, but you can't fight in melee combat.

    In some cases, where the outer wall is less than 5 feet wide, most of the inner halls are 5 feet wide but may not be centered with the grid. Is this really a problem?

    After I post these and the last three, probably later tonight, I will begin gridding these tiles and try to post as many as possible tomorrow.

    If I have to tweak, where I got it wrong, well, then I'll do just that. But as far as I can tell, it should work.

    NEXT FIVE TILES
    4 Waterworks Tiles (sounds better than drainage tiles)
    1st of the Cavern Tiles.

    Almost finished with the design part...

    EDIT: in retrospect, I think I'm going to create a 9" x 11" grid, centered over the 8x10 tile, dropped under the walls, removed over non-traversable areas, then the outer half inch all around the cut away to the tile borders - it will still be an 8 x 10 grid, just with half a grid under the outer walls. I'm not sure how this would be handled in a VT app, but that's how I plan to do the printed grid dungeon tiles.
