Here’s a compilation showcase of the first complete part of the Smile Game BuilderHi-Tex Terrain Pack‘s ground tiles, complete with stairs and slopes. There are more, but they’ll be in separate showcases.
I’ve put them into several categories (which may still change):
Ground (GRO) – These are standard ground terrains, which usually comprise 4 variations (where appropriate): normal, short grass, long grass and cropped grass.
Thus far, there are around 30-40 ground type terrains (including variations).
Caves (CAV) – There are two variations of caves for each terrain type: high and low.
These are created for specific positioning and only work – and look right – for their intended purpose.
Walls (WAL) – These are specifically used for walls for buildings, but I’m sure they can be used for other things as well.
I haven’t been focusing too much on the walls yet, although these are mostly "horror" themed terrains (originally intended for use in Otherworld SGB).
I’ll continue working on them, expanding the different terrain types, but probably won’t update here as often. Or at least until I have more substance.
The other terrain types I’ve started working on are ice and metal.
Because these do take some time to create, as I virtually create them from scratch (using certain textures as guides), the Hi-Tex Terrain pack will most likely not be free.
Hopefully, sometime in the future, they’ll be separately available either as a DLC through Steam or directly from the website. That’s the plan anyway.
The game won the Bitsummit Award in 2015, given to those stand-out games, and deservedly so! It’s a remarkable DLC with plenty unique animations and characters to use in your games.
All in all, this Smile Game Builder DLC is quite remarkable, notably for its animated motions, which are uniquely customized. It comes with 95 models in total including its color variations. And there are a few other surprises in it too, which I’ll let you discover on your own.
I would highly recommend this for all Iron Will fans, and those who aren’t familiar with it as well.
Over the course of this month, I’ll be releasing some of the assets and resources I’ve created for Smile Game Builder on its official subsite.
I’ve showcased some of them already, some of which haven’t been seen by anyone yet. These will be divided into their proper categories, such as terrains, windows and title screens, in the SGB Assets tab.
I now have quite a number of them. Most of these will be free to download. However, some won’t be, as they’re part of a larger resource pack I’m creating for some time in the future. The premium assets will still be showcased on the site, but will only be downloadable after purchase as part of these packs.
In this tutorial for Smile Game Builder, I round up some of the requests and how-to’s I received. These are drawn from various sources (YouTube comments, Steam, Facebook and Messenger) and will continue being a theme for future Tips & Tricks tutorials.
This excellent pack contains 114 files (22 for background music, 10 background sounds, 10 jingles and 72 sound effects). Each one encapsulates the emotions for creating a unique and dramatic feel to any horror-themed game.
I already have a few favorites: Past Memory, Recollection and Creeping Darkness. Which ones are your favorites?
