[tileset] .psd worksheet for tileset design
Gamedev stream and tileset worksheet

Today I've made my first �gamedev’ stream (in Russian this time, next would be in English), where I work with new Angband Online tileset:

During this stream I've showed my Russian friends how to work with Angband tileset and afterward I continued to work with AO tileset redesign.

Why I'm writing about it there, in dev section? ;)

Because I wanna share my .PSD (photoshop) worksheet which makes work with tileset EZPZ. It's got guidelines with coordinates at separate layers and some new tiles from genious Gervais. Feel free to download worksheet at our website:

It's just a start, we'll make loads of updates and Shtukensia would draw new tiles - so be in touch :D This .PSD file would be updated.

So far the useful in this file is for example 'Rubble' tiles - they got proper background and also Shtukensia redesigned 'passable rubble' at last - feel free to add it to V-distributive or in any other variant!

And of course everyone are welcome to join the work with Gervais's heritage enhancement! Join Angband Online discord, lets do it together!

While I don't like tiles personally, I do agree that they should be complete for the game. Kudos on this tangar. It is a worthy effort

Pete, thank you :) I'm also attached to ASCII and even developed ASCII-based 1-bit tileset, but I look at graphical tileset as the most effective way for roguelike genre popularization (and especially 'online roguelikes genre').


Today I've made yet another stream, in English this time:

It was mainly demonstration of some possibilities to show how stuff works; at the end I've tested that tileset could be extended, so next time we would work at new, extended version together :)

YAES (yet another English stream):

- enlarged tileset height 2x and reassigned guidelines there
- added loads of new tiles

.PSD uploaded

great tiles: (push SPOILER to see all stuff) , they got proper licence:

All of my resources are free to use as long as you credit me. It makes no difference to me if they are used commercially or not, so you may use them for any purposes. If you would like to edit them or submit on other website, also credit me please.
I suppose a lot of stuff from there could be adapted for Gervais tileset, especially - beautiful floor tiles.

Today's 4-h stream in Russian:

Went through all Gervais' heritage and took main stuff for creating 'custom towns 'demo'.

.PSD updated

Past two streams was a few days ago: (en) (ru)

.psd updated

Now everything ready for creating custom map - making a lot of backgrounds and creating differently shadowed objects for each of it.

I had a pause in development as I hurt my arm and couldn't work with a mouse. But I hope I'll be able to come back soon.

Back to work. Finished trees in Russian stream:

As for now I'm limited to 255 tiles in town_feat.txt, I'm 'planting' trees to grass, sand and snow only.. But it's ok for 'alpha' version; after some time I'll add more terrain types

psd updated
