No Comments

The Hi-Tex Assets Megapack Vol. 2 – Terrains: Walls is scheduled for release next week (earlier than anticipated).

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This pack superceded the previous volumes because I’d initially planned on having three separate terrain packs, each with around 60 terrains.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

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.

Bookshelf and Modular Books Models

The bookshelf and its modular books Smile Game Builder 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 has 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.

I’m in the process of revising and restructuring all of my furniture models, including creating more modular content specifically for the bookcases and tables.

Hi-Tex House Pack Vol. 1
Withdrawal and Revision

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.

As it stands right now, the current totals in my SMILE GAME BUILDER Hi-Tex assets range stands at:

  • 137 Ground Terrains, including variations.
  • 284 House Wall Terrains (Stucco, Red Brick, Orange Brick and Stone).
  • 3 Lintel Models, based on the House Wall Terrains.
  • 42 Chair Normal and Cushioned Models (Mahogany, Oak and Pine).
  • 3 Square Table Models (Mahogany, Oak and Pine).

During August, I will continue working on them, tweaking and improving them, before final release some time in September. And I’ll be adding more before release.

As I mentioned before, those who already purchased the House Pack Vol. 1 will receive the new house wall terrains and models for free as a thank you!
