Whether you’re creating an elegant city of elves, a domain of dwarves, an outpost of orcs, a town of buildings in trees, a cluster of hobbit holes, or something really different (wizard towers, magical academies, hedge mazes, etc.) this art collection has you covered!
Want to flesh out a fantasy city for your game? Include this set of nearly 200 city map images including 150 building icons/symbols in your image library! Art by the amazing artist/cartographer Keith Curtis.
You may publish maps using these icons–see the license below. Full list of buildings is also noted below.
Each image is a transparent PNG so it can be imported into many image and map editors, including Cityographer. Smaller buildings (houses, small shops) are generally around 200x200pixels. Other buildings are larger.
To use them in Cityographer:
Unzip the file anywhere you’d like on your computer. (Perhaps create a cityographer folder.) Then when starting a new map, change the “use default map items” drop-down to “override map items” and use the adjacent file chooser to browse to the “_fantasy-and-built-in-mapitems.properties” file in the unzipped folder. You can also change the “use default data” option to “override default data” and then use select any of the ______-gensettings.properties files to make it easier to create a town or city of the given type.
