 Post subject: New Art Pack! Dorpond's Tree Pack 1
PostPosted: Fri Nov 04, 2011 6:40 pm 
Dorpond? Who's that?? :lol:

I don't think there will ever be enough trees out there, so I decided to make some for you all! I used Tree[d] to make them and used the stock leaf colors except the late fall leaves - those were my own color choices (since that is how my trees currently look in my back yard).

If you guys have more interest in trees like these, let me know - I can make them very quickly at this point.

You can get his tile pack by simply by opening Maptool and going to:
File -> Add to Resource Library, and click on the red gear. You will see his pack in the list.


Here is an example:

Couple things worth mentioning:
1. Unfortunately there was a bug in Maptool 1.3B86 that prevents you from downloading art packs – Booo! :P
2. 1.3B87 (the latest version of Maptool) allows you to get art packs just fine, however, the license file will not appear during installation. I will supply that below. This will be fixed in Maptool 1.3B88.
3. Maptool 1.3b60 through 1.3B84 works fine when it comes to downloading and installing Art Packs. B85 works but doesn't show the license.


Enjoy!

Yeah, every GM needs helpful resources in his trusty toolbox. Trees are a must.
Glad you like! :D

I really love the detail on the leaves, I am greatly impressed. I want to use them right now... if only I had people (and had finished my framework...) then I'd be using them.

FYI for new folks...

The file size on each tree is 500KB, so they're fairly big images. But you can copy a single tree into a campaign and use it over and over (on one or more maps) and clients only have to download it once. That means a single tree copied all over is very efficient, but a separate tree image for each tree is going to blow the campaign file size way up.

See the Sticky thread under Tools > MapTool on "MapTool memory usage and map sizes" for details.

(Oh, and you can scale and rotate images on a map any way you like (including stretching and flipping) and the image is only in the campaign once.)

Trees came in handy the other day. I did use a technique discussed on dundjinni to add snow to the tree. Turned out pretty well.

Here's a slightly zoomed out version where I applied it to some buildings as well.

As a result, my map turned out pretty well from all the resources you've been putting on here. Thanks a lot and keep em comin'.

Cool!

But... Usually the leaves are gone, or close to gone, in the winter season. Right?
That was why I added snow to the bare trees (in pack4 I believe). I never thought there would be a need for snow on green trees.

I guess a magical snow storm could create the need. *shrug*

Thanks for sharing!

That's true for leafy trees, but evergreens keep their green during winter. Technically, I updated a leafy tree, but I liked the shape of this tree. I actually put the the leafless tree on the map first, but it kind of disappeared in to the background, so I went with the snow covered tree. Plus, it's a fantasy world ;)

Heh. You misunderstood my term "green trees". I live in Western New York and am surrounded by snow covered evergreens. I am fully aware of those suckers. :)
When I released pack 2, I hand painted some evergreens white but the pack got a little two big. They were going in pack 5 if I ever got to it. If not, I'll release them as an extra. It looks like aliasmask could use them! If you need some aliasmask, let me know and I'll upload them.

So aliasmask, I love your snow scene. I wish we had more snow and desert stuff. Perhaps I will see if Bogie can help us out in that area, or at least point me to someone who would love to aid us.

I would LOVE more winter stuff, since my campaign will have many more snow scenes. I uploaded my map for the community HERE if you're interested in a premade map. It's based on Zagig's Bridge from a wotc module which is the bridge you cross going from the city of Greyhawk to Greyhawk Castle. I changed a couple of details and made it a snow scene. All the images are open source gathered from many sources (the usual suspects in the links area).
