    Re: Space Hulk 3E Tileset

    Ok, I made a new tileset file named SpaceHulk3E_2sets.set and it's satellite set files.

    It accommodates making maps where the user has 2 sets of Space Hulk to work with.
    The only difference is the number of tiles values. So it will warn you correctly when you have two sets.

    http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1694147/S...lk3E_2sets.zip

    Unzip it into the same folder with the other stuff.

    (you still need the original tileset too)

    In the program, there is a command "Change Tileset" under the File menu. Where you can go pick which tileset to use.

    Maps remember which tileset they use. So, if you have a map you wish to switch over to the 2 set tileset, you need to:
    - Open the map. (which will load the regular tileset he was created with)
    - Change tilesets to the new one.
    - Save map.

    From that point on, the map will remember that he uses the 2 set tileset.

    Tilesystem usage tips:

    - Try the OpenGL option if you can. I was tempted to make it OpenGL only, but some people with older laptops would be screwed. So I left the software rendering in.

    - Use the mouse wheel, if you have one. Rolling the wheel zooms in and out. Holding down the wheel while dragging allows you to pan around. This allows you to not have to switch away from the edit tool, where you will spend most of your time.

    - Try the "Advanced Mouse Wheel Zoom" feature under the View menu. Rolling the mouse forward causes it to zoom in on the location where your mouse cursor is at, rather than just zoom in on the center of the screen. Rolling the mouse wheel back causes it to zoom out towards the map's extents, rather than just zoom out centered on the screen.

    - If you have a large, high resolution monitor, play with the tile panel options under the View menu. You can choose large or small tile thumbnails in the tile panel. You can also choose how many columns to show. Doing this, or resizing the window, can cause the main view to draw garbage at first. Since the target window has changed. Just pan or zoom to make it redraw and it will be normal again.

    - If you want to call attention to a room, or section of a map, you can color-tint it. This is useful for things like making note of rooms where the Space Marine player has to flame the room. Select the tiles you want to tint and then hit the "Set Tile Color" toolbar button. (or pick the command from the Edit menu) Then you can pick the color and the amount to tint.

    - If you want to make text labels larger or smaller, select the text tile and then go to the Edit menu. There is an option called "Scale Tile".

    - If you want a text label, or any tile, to not snap to the grid or rotate to 90 degree increments, then select the tile(s) and go to the Edit menu and pick "Set Tile Free". This is useful for precision placement or rotation.

    - If you want to change the font (for all text), go to the SpaceHulk3E folder and open the "gui.set" file in notepad. Find the line that says "fontname="Arial"" and change it to something else. The change wont take effect until you restart the program.

    Anyone know of a good Warhammer 40k font?

    Re: Space Hulk 3E Tileset

    How on earth do i add another tile to the set or make it so i can have like 50 or so of one room ect?

  9. #29

    Re: Space Hulk 3E Tileset

    You can place more instances of something into a map, than the set comes with. It will just flag it as overused in the tile panel. If you want the tile panel to think you have 50 of something, find the appropriate tileset file and open it in notepad. Find the tile and change it's "maxcount" value to 50.

    If you want to add a whole new tile to the set, find the set it should go in and open it. Copy / paste an existing tile. Change it to point to your custom .png file. Change it's name to something unique. (You can't have more than one tile with the same name)

    Thanks, now i have my custom stealer entry tile.

    Re: Space Hulk 3E Tileset

    I made some arrows and put them in an add-on download:
    https://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1694147/SpaceHulkArrows.zip
    (unzip into the same place as before. Will replace your gui.set file)

    I think they are useful for ladders, and calling attention to special spots on the map. Example:


    Since they are grey by default, you will need to color tint them. Preferably at 100% tint.

    Also, to position / lengthen them just right, enable the "Show Resize Handles" option in the Edit menu.

    Re: Space Hulk 3E Tileset

    (I don't seem to be getting any "actual" work done today. Too distracted)

    How to make and publish a Space Hulk mission map:

    - Design the map in Tilesystem.

    - Chose "Publish to JPEG" from the File menu.

    - Start a document in Microsoft Word, or any word processor.
    (http://www.openoffice.org/ has a good, free word processor)

    - Insert the jpeg image into the document.

    - Write some mission description stuff. Make it pretty.

    - Keep refining the map and the document's description until you think it is ready to publish.

    - Convert it to a PDF file. The easiest way to do this is to install something like this:
    http://www.cutepdf.com/products/cutepdf/Writer.asp
    It creates a bogus printer that, if chosen, will generate a PDF file.

    - Upload PDF to someplace on the series of tubes.

    - Post links to it on Warseer.

    - Profit. (not really. Just a joke GW)

    I will keep updating the root post so that stuff can be found more easily.

    Every time I try to change the tile set I get an Error Massage "File Does Not Exist".

    I assume you mean changing the tileset from regular to the "2 sets" version.
    Perhaps the zip file was unzipped into the wrong folder.

    Can you verify that both the "SpaceHulk3E.set" file and the "SpaceHulk3E_2sets.set" file are in the same folder? (there should be no other .set files in there) Also, there should be only one folder next to them named "SpaceHulk3E". If you have a "Copy of SpaceHulk3E" or something, then the files went in the wrong place.

    Re: Space Hulk 3E Tileset

    Ah. I think you unzipped it into it's own directory instead of into your "Tilesystem304".
    Just grab those two things and move them to the Tilesystem304 directory.
    You will be asked to replace the folder, but just say yes. It is adding new files to the existing folder.

    (I am assuming that the Tilesystem304 dir is where the program is.)

    Re: Space Hulk 3E Tileset

    When you use OpenOffice you do not need an additional PDF Printer, you can directly create a PDF through OpenOffice.

    Otherwise i recommend PDFCreator for windows when you need a PDF printer and SumatraPDF as a viewer - much faster than Adobe - Both apps are opensource.

    Re: Space Hulk 3E Tileset

    We should probably take this conversation off-line into messages from this point forward.

    I think you are getting closer. From the screenshot, it looks like the original space hulk zip file (https://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1694147/...paceHulk3E.zip) wasn't unzipped into your existing Tilesystem folder.

    If you unzipped it someplace else, delete it from there and re-unzip it to the Tilesystem304 directory, or just move it to the Tilesystem304 directory.

    note that it includes a new version of the TileSystem.exe file. (v305)

    Re: Space Hulk 3E Tileset

    Thanks I got it working.
    The first Space hulk file was missing items.
    The new files works though.
    Thank you again.
