SGB Hi-Tex Assets Megapack #2 – Terrains: Walls

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.

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This pack superceded the previous volumes because I’d initially planned on having three separate terrain packs, each with around 60 terrains.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.

Hi-Tex Furniture Models: Bookshelf and Books – Smile Game Builder

No Comments

The bookshelf and its modular books models have been resized to match the size of the default bookshelf. The narrower models didn’t look or feel right.

This will be a part of the Hi-Tex Furniture Pack, which is scheduled for release later this year. It’s been set as Vol. 2 of the Furniture pack. However, I’m considering releasing this as Vol. 1 instead of Vol. 2, as I’d like to remake the chairs and tables, basically a few adjustments to size and form.

Changes to Smile Game Builder
Hi-Tex Packs Content

No Comments

As part of a restructure of the Hi-Tex Assets Packs for Smile Game Builder, I decided to reorganize the contents of the assets packs. I also changed the numbering system; this is to improve integration when new volume packs are added.

Ground Terrain Pack Vol. 1

The Ground Terrain Pack Vol. 1 contains 81 terrains in total.

Hi-Tex Ground (GRO) Pack Vol. 1
Hi-Tex Ground (GRO) Pack Vol. 1

¶ The number of variations has been reduced as it was deemed that there were too many of them. Instead, I opted for less that can be expanded more in future packs.

House Pack Vol. 1

This pack contains a total of 287 assets. These are designed specifically as indoor walls.

  • 001-STUCCO (Terrain)
  • 002-REDBRICK/STUCCO (Terrain)
  • 003-ORANGEBRICK/STUCCO (Terrain)
  • 004-STONE (Terrain)
  • 005-LINTEL (Models)

¶ 001 through 004 each have 71 variations with different cross-beams and 005 are models designed to fit above doors.

Furniture Pack Vol. 1

At the moment, the Furniture Pack Vol. 1 contains 42 models, which may or may not be expanded later.

It has 3 types of chair (Mahogany, Oak and Pine), both normal and cushioned, in various poses (Normal, Overturned and Ruined). It also has matching tables (Square, Long and Round) and 3 paper decorations designed to fit on top of the tables (Plain, Symbol and Writing).

Furniture Pack Vol. 2

The furniture models in this pack are currently being revamped, but it will contain matching chairs from the Furniture Pack Vol. 1. These are designed to sit upside down on top of the tables (Single and Dual).

And it adds more paper table decorations (Bloodstained, Handprint and Bloody Handprint).

Although it currently has 15 models, I plan on adding more later.

Furniture Pack Vol. 3

In the Furniture Pack Vol. 3, the focus is on bookcases and pictures.

Bookcases match the previous packs (Mahogany, Oak and Pine) and the books are modular so can be stacked on the bookcase events in SGB, filling the entire shelf, partially filled shelves or having the top, middle or bottom shelves filled.

For the pictures, all artwork (except for the 2 maps) were created by my other half, Tina, who gave her permission to use them.

Release Date

I plan on releasing these packs over the course of next year, starting with the Ground Terrain Pack Vol. 1 and the House Pack Vol. 1.

To be informed of their releases, and for other information regarding SGB and this site, be sure to subscribe/follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

Hi-Tex House Pack Vol. 1
Withdrawal and Revision

Smile Game Builder Hi-Tex Assets Models
No Comments

The House Pack Vol. 1 for SMILE GAME BUILDER has been withdrawn. I’m in the process of revising this entire pack and its contents, and separating it into different categories:

  • House Wall Terrains Pack (including Lintels)
  • Furniture Pack (chairs, tables and bookcases, including modular decorations)
  • Pictures Pack (various pictures and frames)

Individual packs and the bundle pack will be available on Itch.io and the online store, as well as other places.

These will be bundled into the newly revised House Pack Vol. 1 and, as a thank you, anyone who already purchased the asset pack will receive the bundle for free.

Note: I’m still not sure that I trust Itch enough to sell through them, but we shall see what happens.
