I have just completed work on an isometric engine. Now I need tiles. I tried several art programs like Paint Shop Pro 6 but I just can''t get it to look good. Does anyone out there know where I can find prefabricated isometric tiles?

It might be worthwhile investing in Adobe Photoshop 5.0 - It beats PSP. As for prefabricated tiles, sorry, I''ve got no idea.

You''re not right about Paint Shop Pro 6.You can do a great job by using the right plugins.When you say isometric tiles i believe you mean ground and fringe tiles.Well i highly recommend you to use the BladePro plugin which is the best for this job.You can have realistic ground tiles in a few seconds!

I also use isotiles in my game, and what I did was create an auto-rotator within my map editor. So I just design a normal tile in whatever art program suits me (Photoshop''s good, mostly) and then rotate it inside my editor. It works GREAT and I don''t have to bother with drawing isotiles. That''s what I''d recommend.

I'm not much of an artist... The way I do is described below:

1] Create your texture in a 200x200 pixel area
2] Make a stencil of your tile (what I mean is instead of have the tile itself take the remaining "piece of paper" from where you cut the iso-tile out"
3] Make a copy of your 200x200 pixel area (step 4 will destroy the original)
4] Stamp down your stencil and then "background fill" the stencil.

You now have an iso-tile...
repeat the steps again and move your stencil over the original. Say you are creating grass tiles and you want a variety of tiles you could pick up 4 or 6 "connecting" tiles


Have fun
