Smile Game Builder Tutorial #40:
Customizing Graphics – Terrain

This week’s tutorial is a how-to for creating basic terrains in Smile Game Builder. This isn’t anything fancy, like animated terrains, just the anatomy of a terrain. I use several sizes in this tutorial to demonstrate how they work in SGB and give my own insight on creating your own terrains.

Xye’s Seamless Terrain Tutorial

Another method I mentioned in the tutorial is Xye’s excellent Seamless Terrain Tutorial. This is a really good tutorial I’d recommend you read through.

House Builder Assets Pack 6 for Smile Game Builder Released

My friend Jackson has released his new House Builder Pack for Smile Game Builder. It’s a modern style, but I’d recommend you try the others in his HBP series as well!

In fact, why not check out ALL of his assets and resource packs? They’re well-designed and fit snugly into your SGB games!

He creates these awesome models for free so, while you’re at it, please do show your support on his Patreon.

No Smile Game Builder Tutorial This Week – Extra Shifts!

Life has become chaotic again, primarily with extra shifts at work, so I haven’t been able to prepare any Smile Game Builder tutorials this week.

That said, I have been working on "scripts" (rough notes) for it. So, next week’s video tutorial will be a how-to on Creating Terrains. I’m only covering the static, non-animated terrains; I’ll save the animated terrains, like water and poison, for a later tutorial.

And I’ll try and write a blog article on Switches Wednesday/Thursday. (Things should return to normal next week anyway.)

Upcoming Smile Game Builder Tutorials

As many of you know by now, I do plan my tutorials in advance, so the next planned Smile Game Builder tutorials right now (in no particular order) are:

  • Creating and importing assets – terrains (video)
  • Creating a quest system (video)
  • Advanced variables – 3D cameras (blog)
  • Creating a crime system (video)
  • Creating HUDs (video and blog)

These are all subject to change, but these are the immediate plans I’ve laid out. Notwithstanding my work schedules, blog posts are usually Wednesday/Thursday and video uploads are usually Sunday/Monday.

No Tutorial Update This Week

There is no Smile Game Builder blog or video tutorial this week.

Life has become chaotic again. Not only have I been working extra shifts, I’ve also been so focused on my RPG Maker MV project, The Gladiator Program MV and its graphics that time just evaporated.

Things should get back on track next week. And I’ll continue with the blog articles and video tutorials and showcases.
