I just meant shifting the interior pattern around.

I assume you've got it covered in the -b, etc tiles. That's
all I meant. I missed the -a designation on your initial
post.

Yeah, the patterns themselves will be appropriate reproductions of the entire -a through -h series in placement. I am just trying to come up with a basic structured outline "style" to use before I start mucking about with colored variants of said product.

400x400 Example of What I've Come Up With and Like Thus Far. -a Tile.

Like Mercutio, I meant variations of the brick size patterns in the -a -b -c etc.

Oh by all means yes. I even mentioned previously that my intent was to recreate the grouting for Kepli's entire -a through -h suffix of tiles. Once done, you can simply slap them down on top of one big preexisting texture you find to your liking or individually atop a series of smaller ones.

I have the base -a through -h series drawn out and am in the process of constructing a grouting texture method I like.

Still working on a method to generate the grout to my liking. Once perfected, it will be nothing more than the easy matter of generating specific color sets to apply on either dark, medium, or light colored textures as one sees fit.

Converting 4 tiles over really quick, I came up with...

Rough Idea of what they will eventually look like


Stamped to random textures


Original 4 Tiles from Kepli


Added Test Sample to Check Patterns


YUP! They Match! WAHOO!

I really like this tileset! Who knows, Kep might even have it somewheres lol. They look so awesome as dungeon floors.

LOL, I already see errors in the design draw. Some of those tiny squares were meant to bleed over and create rectangles. Doh!

Funny tidbit about these tiles: the stone shapes were originally done in MS Word

And yes, some of the small squares form rectangles when more tiles are put together

You and your Word!

I still can't believe that Word produced such a superb effect! I use that run of tiles all the time!

I also found a simple way of making grouts. Finally! It's now just a matter of getting the inner shading right so the textures aren't so uniform in their appearance.

I also managed to emulate the Tileset's "pattern" effects. So once done with their shadings and what not, will provide everyone with a neat little template series to start stamping down on top of their favorite textures and make their own private/public versions of Kepli's Irregular tile patterns.

Original Flooring in Use


Applied Templates Atop Random Texture

Heh, it's amazing what a few seconds of alterations can do. Already came up with something I fancy. Mind you, this is still in its original 400x400 rendering.

A Couple of Added Filters to Grout Layer


What the Product Would Look Like Once Done

Should work quite easily too. Just stamp the template PNG on top of your texture PNG. Complete the -a through -h series and place them into a folder.

Random Texture then with Template Applied

OK then. I think I have enough for two batches of templates. I can't help but think that the bevel needs to be lowered a bit but leave that up to you lot to decide.

I'll go ahead and use this spot as the master download thread. Enjoy.

Files - Two Separate Tilesets
Removed Tiles to Deal With Cropping Issue. Will replace when fixed. Sorry...

I'll go ahead and post my first test set.

6E1_irregular_grout_template1_ean.zip

Bogie? Someone? Slap them on some textures and see how they work for you. I have tried tackling the feint line issue with the borders of tiles -g and/or -b. The other stuff I have resolved, but there is always a faint line as if trying to form a border there for some reason and it's driving me bonkers. I've even shrunk the canvas then resized the PNG's as well.

Sample of Issue


The hour is late and my brain is fried. Upon last review, it looks like it might be an issue with the angle in which I have the gradient shadowing applied. I say this as the line is also apparent in the grouting itself as well as across the blank region. I'll mess around with it in the morning and try changing the angles in which tiles -g and -b are facing.

It seems to tile well enough as is. I just can't figure out what the heck is causing that ghost line.

Are all pieces 200x200 at 200dpi?

The line I see in a quick test of the tiles is not because of the grout tile, but just because where the textures meet, they are not really seamless, and that forms a line.
