I was testing walls for caves and Mob shadows at the same time, when I grabbed an awesome screen shot of a spider mob. :mrgreen:

https://i.postimg.cc/Vspx3LC0/Dungeon-0.png https://i.postimg.cc/fTdGZnc2/Dungeon-1.png Another test I did last night. The Horizon Tileset Template is working, so long as you don't abuse the displacement of the mesh too much. If you do, you'll have to do some hand editing. The lines between tiles c...

Re: Bt Builder

https://i.postimg.cc/v85331vj/Layer-1.png More texture work. I added additional geo to the wall edges, to keep the mesh together when sub-dividing. There are still places, here and there, where you'll have to hand edit, but I think it may be possible to have seamless walls, and not that black line ...

Still working on the lighting problem. but put together a full tileset to test new textures. I created a seamless ceiling and floor. I think it's around 90k polys for displacement. The render was cranked up to 12 on the sub-d slider.

Re: Bt Builder

https://i.postimg.cc/LXS2MsJF/Background.png I am now working on the final build of the Tileset Kit pieces. As you can see, there are still seam issues with the horizon, mainly due to displacement, but in this event, it's from using the Sun node in an attempt to create a solution that prevents havi...

I was working on wandering monster specials and had an epiphany when it came to the UI, so I tried it out and really like it. Very minimalist and it works rather well. https://i.postimg.cc/k4vGXM6q/BTBuilder-V3.png Horned Warrior https://i.postimg.cc/y6rBhSz2/BTBuilder-V3-1.png Ogre Dulsi, are you s...

https://i.postimg.cc/wx13r5yy/BT-Map-Edit.png Fixed the MapEdit to work within the confines of BTBuilder. Map Size is 21X x 30Y. The coordinates can handle up to a 100x100 grid (0-99) before breaking the coordinates - they won't display at 100 or higher, due to space limitations. https://i.postimg....

Patched BTBuilder to be Long Access Aware. Can now breach the 2GB barrier. Sadly, will only work with the Windows version, but that's the original City Tileset in full.
