    Default Symbol Search: Mine Rail Tracks and cave stuff

    Hi everyone,

    ive been searching for mine cart tracks for a cave i am building for my next game. Seems all i can find online are either real tracks or some from minecraft

    does anyone know of a set i could get that might have good elements in it ex: straight, curves and cross section. or even broken tracks
    i'm not exactly looking for free i don't mind paying if for a set that has all i might need.

    Some spider webs would be cool too

    There is a great set on the DundJinni Forums by an old member Cecil. The thread is 7 pages long and there are different sections on all of the first 5 pages, so make sure you look at all of them.
    Here is a link to the post. Dundjinni Mapping Software - Forums: Rails old

    And here is one of them to get you started.

    You're Welcome, I'm looking forward to seeing the map.

    Here is a link to a dwarven mine by Tintagel that might give you some ideas. http://educatedgamer.net/gallery/dis...p&cat=0&pos=32

    Not as refined as those, but I've made a Dwarven Mine with ore cart rails several months ago...

    I use Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 9 which lets me create shapes (the wood base for tracks) to create a "brush" so when I draw a line, a series of rail supports show up instead. Then I draw a line that is narrower than the rail supports line, convert line to shape, remove the fill, make the outlines into 2 point lines, convert those lines to shapes then apply a shiny grey metal texture fill - now I have rails over my supports. At least that' how I did them. Though I did put some detail into rail switches and such.
