Megapack #2 Contents

It contains 206 exterior wall terrains and variations, as well as their corresponding stairs and slopes, comprising 41 different types.

This will be available on the Gnome Treasure and Itch.io.

This is a placeholder for showcase images. I’ll update this area right before the megapack’s completion.

Prices on Itch.io are slightly higher to offset deductions from Revenue Sharing and PayPal fees.

Note About the Megapack #1

The Hi-Tex Assets Megapack Vol. 1 – Terrain: Ground is available for purchase for $12.99.

I’m redoing the stairs and slopes for the megapack, so anyone who purchases – or has purchased – the pack before they’re implemented will be able to upgrade at no extra cost.

And, since this megapack contains the previously released terrains volumes 1 and 2 (and the unreleased volume 3), those who have already purchased them can buy this pack for 3.99 (saving around 75%). Simply use the Contact Us form on the Gnome Treasure Store and select the subject Product Re-Request. I will then send an email directly and, once payment has cleared, will give a link for the complete megapack for you to download.

NEWS: Live-Streaming Smile Game Builder

No Comments

At the beginning of this week, I started live-streaming SMILE GAME BUILDER. And I’d like to make it a regular weekly occurrence.

Tutorials Live-Streams

The initial idea behind the live-stream was that it would be a means to return to the video tutorials, especially as it’s been quite a while since my last tutorial.

You can watch the video below or at YouTube.

More Smile Game Builder Tutorials

I’m certainly going to continue live-streaming the SGB tutorials, scheduling them every Sunday at 10pm GMT/2pm PST/5pm EST.

I had planned on making these live-streamed videos "official" parts of the Tutorials & Showcases Playlist.

This will probably not apply any more, since I’m inevitably getting back to the tutorials soon. And I’ll be able to draw on materials from the live-streams, as well as other sources, for them.

The Hi-Tex Megapacks are high-textured assets I’m creating for SMILE GAME BUILDER. Each pack contains at least 200 base terrains and/or models and, for terrains, additional stairs and slopes terrains are also included.

Scheduled Release Dates

These are the scheduled release dates of all the Hi-Tex Megapacks:

Vol. 1: Ground Terrains

Hi-Tex Assets Megapack #1 - Terrains: Ground
Buy this pack for
$12.99
Volume 1 was released on 15 July 2019 on Gnome Treasure and Itch.io.

This pack superceded the previous volumes because I’d initially planned on having three separate terrain packs, each with around 60 terrains. However, the third was never released. Hence, all three are now combined into a single megapack.

An add-on pack will follow some time in the future to include things like cave entrances, blood stains and fire burns.

Vol. 2 – Wall Terrains

This megapack, scheduled for release in August 2019*, contains all kinds of wall terrains, from brick walls to stone walls.

¶ The way development has been progressing on this pack, it’s likely that its release date will be brought forward.

Vol. 3 – Buildings Wall Terrains

Scheduled for release in September 2019*, this megapack will contain various exterior walls for buildings.

¶ I’m also looking into adding some unique matching wall "attachments" models for inclusion in this megapack.

House Pack Megapack

The original "House Pack", intended for release some time ago, was to contain interior wall terrains only: Stucco, Brick and Stone textures, including their corresponding lintels.

This new megapack will also include some wood panel walls, aged walls and wallpaper (at least that’s the plan).

After some consideration, I’m entertaining including additional generic household items (models) in this pack. Time will tell whether these are added or no depending on the resultant filesize.

¶ I have no release date in mind for this megapack.


* These dates are subject to change.

Prices on Itch.io are slightly higher to offset deductions from Revenue Sharing and PayPal fees.

15% Discount

Subscribers (I prefer "patrons") to my Subscribestar will receive an exclusive 15% discount. This applies to $5+ monthly subscribers.

Free “Subscribestar Uniques” Terrains

No Comments

I have three free "Subscribestar Uniques" high-textured Terrain for my Subscribestar $5+ patrons. These are free-to-use in non-commercial and commercial SMILE GAME BUILDER projects only. No strings. There’ll be regular giveaways there, just like this one, as well.

Subscribestar Uniques – Grass Wall Showcase

Note: Subscribestar has inanely set it set up where you won’t see the post publicly unless you subscribe. You should be able to see a "locked" post (with a title) so that potential subscribers can see potential content. Not just the "paying few". Patreon does it (no not going there), so why can’t Subscribestar do the same?

Hi-Tex Terrain Megapack Coming Soon!

Hi-Tex Terrain Megapack – Coming Soon

This is an announcement for my SMILE GAME BUILDER Hi-Tex Terrain Packs.

New Terrain Megapack

All three previous volumes are now merging into a 200-terrain megapack for $12.99 (available soon on Gnome Treasure and Itch.io).

Those who already bought Volumes 1 and 2 will get a special price for Volume 3. I’ll work out the details nearer the time of release.

¶ There are actually 203 terrains in the pack!

Included Extras

Included in the megapack for your convenience are two duplicate folders: One for stairs and one for slopes.

The files have been slightly altered with an added ST_ is for stairs and SL_ is for slopes – what else would they be, right?! – to easily distinguish them from the main terrains.

And all $5-tier or above patrons (subscribers) on my Subscribestar account will receive a discount and a copy of the purchased megapack at least a week before its official release. Can’t argue with that!

Pricing

The price for the entire megapack will be $12.99 (slightly more on Itch.io to offset their fees and PayPal’s fees), as opposed to around $15.99 for all three individual packs. Although Volume 3 was never "officially" released, it was scheduled for a $2.99 (ish) price tag.

Combining all three volumes is a win-win. You get a great deal and I get a complete assets pack released.
