Top-Down House Images
Looking for some free (!) house images top-down view. I am looking to recreate maps akin to the WotC town-maps, as seen here:
If you know of such pictures or want to share them, please bump me! :)
Thanks in advance!
I can't help you directly. Our top downs are based upon historically accurate roofs and bear no resemnlance to the roofs in the graphic you posted. However, there might be a good answer, depending upon your mapping tools. Your bio doesn't tell us what software you use. If you use CC2, CC2 Pro or CC3, the ProFantasy website has a free download of similar vector symbols created 10 years ago or so by a CC2 user. However, these symbols work only in CC2, CC2 Pro and CC3.

What you need is this thread...
The pages of houses in 5 styles, height map and mask should give you what you need.
Did you already download the CSUAC? It's an enormous, free collection of symbols:
It contains hundreds of topdown structures.
As a matter of interest, just how enormous is the CSUAC? How many Mb?

I am not at home right now, but the CSUAC isn't hundreds of MB's. It's more like dozens. The symbols are rather small themselves.
I just looked at it, the Dundjinni downloads amount to around 600MB (zipped), the CC3 and Fractal Mapper totals will probably be slightly higher.
Oops... hundreds of MB's then.
I thought they were a lot smaller (but I must confess I only downloaded parts of the CC3 symbol catalogues).
Well that was all of the different parts (bldgs, patterns, etc.), if he just wants the buildings it will be a lot less.
