View Full Version : Maps Clixbuilders.com Maps for 3D buildings
Hello again. I added map file for people who use 3D buildings. These maps are basically blank streets, pavement, sidewalks and grassy areas so you can add your own buildings and objects. I will be adding another one probably tomorrow, which will be a park map.
Have fun and happy gaming.
Those are awesome!!!
Those are going to make my game maps look so much better!
Fantastic stuff! I like the display too. Is this a setup in your house or somewhere else? I hope to be buying a bigger house soon, and if I still have local players, I'd like to dedicate a room to gaming like that.
Any chance of getting these as one large picture file for each map? I have access to a large printer and would love to have a nice, solid map.
By and large, this is one of the most professional 3D Terrain sites out there today.
I've looked and asked around at a number of art supply stores and no one seems to have a clue what newsboard is. So far I've been attempting to use foamboard, but as thin as it is I'm still concerned it may be a bit thick. I even found black foamboard so I don't have to paint my background/walls. Can anyone help me out ? Does it go by a different name or is there any other material that works equally well in place of 'newsboard? Thanks for any all help.
I work with lots of "art materials" at my place of work and I think that it is also called either illustration board, chip board or crescent board. In my industry it has been called all three of these.
I have built several buildings myself, but mostly of foam core so far. I have made some buildings that have interior walls and have used the illustration board for that. The only draw back that I have encountered with using foam core is the same reason that you mentioned.....it's thickness. Either you lose space on the interior squares, or the exterior....or both. But for some reason, I prefer to use it....at least for my exterior walls. The illustration board works nicely for the interior because it dosen't take away any space from the grid. I just think that foam core seems a bit more sturdier to me:ermm:
Even if you lose some space does it make that much difference? Is the lost space enough to cause problems?
I was looking at using foam board since I couldn't figure out what newsboard was.
If the lost space is an issue I might have to think about this some more.
ibeatdrew and spidey8 what do guys think?
That's some mighty fine work there.
Thanks a lot for the info guys. That does help me a lot. I'll look into the illustration board for the interior walls. When I finish my first building (The Dojo) I'll post a pic or two for all your opinions. Thanks again
Hey fee weasel,
In the grand scheme of things it dosent really matter. Like I was saying before, I like to use foam core for the majority of my designs, except I do side with ibeatdrew on using illustration (news board;) ) board for any of the interior walls. I just notch a groove in the base of the building and the interior walls just slide in ( this also gives them some stability ).
Still working on my website to put all my pics up on so I will attach a single file of my first interior building ( the lower one being a construction trailer ) and one of my latest which I called my warehouse.
I just find that you can "hinge" foam board well by cuting at an anlge ( forming a "V" ) and the piece will still be one sturdy piece after the folding. Of course depending on how deep you make your hinge has a direct relation to how sturdy it is going to end up:rolleyes: .....it takes some practice that I can attest to.
Whoa! I would also like in on those table plans! This is something I've been wanting to do but just didnt know how to get started. Please fill us in on table dimensions (it appears 4ftx4ft) and how you did the cupholder and felt stretching!
