Build your own map or background for your game! By using the Game Map Generator it is as easy and fast as never before to create maps and backgrounds for many different game genres like e.g. Role-Playing Games or MMORPG, Tower Defense and other Real-Time Strategy. Perfect for game developers with little Photoshop knowledge, but also essential for professional game developers as a big time saver.
With only one click you can create any possible map size for which every isometric icon and character animation is suitable! It all makes this little app very versatile and applicable in multiple ways.
As default textures there are 3 different surfaces available: grass, desert and ice/snow. In addition 4 grid versions can be shown if necessary.
With the additional Isometric Transform Tool every 2D shape can be transformed to the correct isometric perspective. That is very useful especially if the basic shape for a GMG Element is not already set in the correct perspective (the basic shape is used to create the Game Map Genarator Elements, like water bodies, streets and so on). Also for icon designers the Isometric Transform Tool is a great assistant.
The heart of the plugin are the 23 detailed GMG Elements: different kind of water bodies, paths, streets, ditches, canyons, plateaus, lava ravines through grass, snow/ice and desert. These can be built out of any shape – no matter if pixel, vector, Smart Object or text layer.
The procedure is very simple: create a basic shape and then click on the desired GMG Element. The basic shape can be created with one of the five brushes from the panel. Simply click on ADD LAYER and start drawing. The Game Map Generator will create a detailed GMG Element of it, that can be edited afterwards.
Every Game Map has its own surface texture requirements. With the 18 high quality textures and the 7 different brushes almost every surface can be built in a fast and professional way. Simply click on the desired texture and start texturing. Every texture has its own presetting of brushes, that can, of course, be edited to fit your personal requirements.
For basic design there are 60 isometric high quality icons available. But also every other icon can be used. If the plugin is used with Photoshop CC-2014 / 2015, there is an Icon Library Function additionally available. With it you can load your own icons (PSD or PNG) directly into the plugin. So it is very easy to retrieve every icon and
to scale it with the useful scale function.
