    Hmm funny... I assume you refer to the attached hut right? I never noticed it before, I always thought its a large stone keeping the roof in place... but if you look closer it could be something like as skull as well.

    So I cant answer your question, all mapping elements are taken from the Dundjinni forum, as I lack the possibility of creating nice objects myself. I assume I could do a few items in GIMP but actually I dont know what tool I should use to actually render objects myself. I am open to suggestions.

    Right now I try to find some nice looking siege machnies, which is harder than I thought :/

    I used some in my Black Tower map and I got those from Dundjinni. Do a search under 'weapons' (if you haven't already).

    gmsapprentice.com get the CSUAC, which has several fantasy weapons (the Equipment download....) The Fractal Mapper one is probably the best one to get for file size/format. DON'T get the Dunjinni one since those are in native Dunjinni format.

    Post Of course you can use Dundjinni Forum stuff!

    Bryguy - of course you can use Dundjinni Forum map objects for your challenge maps! Consider that most of these maps will never be commercially marketed, just about everything (unless stated otherwise) falls into Creative Commons Use license. Challenge Maps are perfectly legal under Dundjinni EULA license restrictions.

    Me, I'd never use a Dundjinni Forums map object. In fact I'd never use content created by someone else - but that's just me, I'd rather create everything from scratch, always. I'm an artist and purist in that sense.

    I might just market anything I design, and still apply a CC License for non-commercial use.

    You can almost always use Dundjinni content for a challenge map.

    GP

    PS: I have a 3D trebuche that I created some years back, I could render a top-down if you need it. I could always model a catapult and/or ballista as well, but then that would be the second month in a row, that I provided a map object for Sagenlight's challenge entry.

    @GP - If I was a good enough artist, I probably would make my own stuff as well, so I understand where you are coming from. There's a certain satisfaction to using your own creations.

    @Sage - here are some of the siege engines I used you may or may not have already seen these.

    Post Thanks alot

    Thanks alot all for your replies

    I got the CSUAC but they just the offer a few siege items. I guess I'll stick with them then.

    @GP
    I am with SG, I'd prefer to create my own items as well, but I havent found a good way to do them, as I am not a real good artist at all.

    I know many of the people in the DJ forums use RealDraw: http://www.mediachance.com/realdraw/

    I played with the demo. It is really easy to use to create nice looking objects like map elements.
