    Bump away - I'd forgotten about this.

    On a related note - I can't get this brush to work with your random density map script. I can get other dynamic brushes to work, but not this one - don't kow quite why this should be?

    I think cause it is saved with angular mapping... i.e. it paints based on the angle of the stroke.

    The random density script is just drawing points, so no direction.... (that is my guess).

    You could open it up and re-save it with only one rank, completely random... then it would randomly use one of the four shapes and some random angle.

    Well after a little playing with the combination of the random density map and the building brush I get this for the same road layout as in my mosaic map:

    Obviously the colours need a little work, but as a way of filling large areas with random building patterns it works remarkably well. Now we just need the random density plugin to resize the brush randomly as well....

    Outstanding use of numerous techniques to solve a problem. The learning goes on. Now to work out something similar for PS. Nice job guys.

    Btw Roba other then saying you are awesome and this is supa sweet, how do I set it up, to use it, being the ubernoob that I am. As of right now I'm trying to make a city map for a game I have however, I did the landscape really nice, but I didn't know how to do the housing, roads or walls, if anyone can help me out with a tutorial that would be much appreciated.
    Btw I'm using Gimp.

    @heathen666 - specifically what guidance are you looking for? Have you read through Pyrandon's city map tutorial? it is readily applicable to GIMP (except for a few of the layer effects and styles used)

    no I have not, but sense you have suggested it I will check it out. I have actually done alot of work using your random housing brush as I like to call it. I also used some png's of trees that I had which came out pretty decent I guess, nothin' fantastic but it does the job.

    Thanks for the brush!

    How do you get it just to be a solid black (or whatever) color?

    The simplest way is to set your foreground and background to the same colour then check the "Use Colour from Gradient" checkbox in the paintbrush properties dialog.
