    Wip Cavern Map

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently working on a map for my Kingmaker game and I want to add some stalagmites but I'm having problem getting them to look right. Can anyone give me any points on how to make a good stalagmite? Also any pointers to help improve my map would be appreciated as well.

    Thanks,

    Very nice map Caraldur. It reminds me very much of Green Pilgrim's maps also in this section of the forums. I really like the colours, the simplicity of it and the water.

    I have always found stalagmites very difficult to do on an overhead map. Personally I would advise not drawing them at all, and if you want to show a difficult-terrain area use little rocks instead.

    I agree with Jack, they're very hard. And unless you're doing a cut-away view, or side view - skip stalagmites and stalactites.

    Thanks, guys. Any suggestions on how to make some good rubble? Should I just use a rubble texture?

    Here are some rubble textures I use ( not my own art, posted on Dundjinni by others )

    I just use a picture of loose rocks and use a splatter brush in Gimp.

    Here's an example of one of my maps:
