Hello everyone. It's been a while since my last mapping tutorial, but I've decided to stop procrastinating and post this tutorial. This is what we will be creating today. A simple city map, with a fog overlay added for atmosphere.
All you will need is Woratana's Multiple Fogs script, found in the Master Script listing. You don't need to use it, though.
Alright, let's get started.
STEP 1:First of all, you will lay the groundwork for your city. I also created the walls in this step for the buildings.
STEP 2:Next thing would be to add the roofing. First, use the red roof autotile ( the one that matches the Mack roof ), and make it 3 tiles/blocks high. Then you will go and add the pre-created Mack roof that comes with this tileset.
STEP 3:Now, we will go ahead and start seperating the buildings from each other. First, bring down the autoroof tile by one block in the spaces between the two pre-created roofs.Then you will select the matching wall autotile and bring that down by 3 tiles/blocks. I also added another, different coloured roof here, to give that illusion of 3D.
Provided you added in a extra roof, you will notice the bottom of the wall autotile sticking out at the top. This can easily be remedied. Use the Shift button, and click with that wall auotile selected. It should disappear. And it will look like this.
STEP 4:Now, you would go ahead and mapping normal house like you usually would. For the roofing at the bottom of the map, just repeat Step 2.
STEP 5:Once you've created the basic structures for your city, you can start decorating it to your heart's content. Just don't overdo the details.
Last, but not least, you can add in a Cloud overlay if you wish to do so, or even a sunbeam. You'd have to get your own graphics for that, though.
Add npcs, smoke coming out of chimneys etc, and you're done!
Hope everyone who read this found it useful and informative. And replies don't hurt.
