        Hello Again. Motekye here, since the well anticipated Blades of Avernum doesn't seem to want to come out yet, I've begun to develop many costom graphics in anticipation of this event. I don't have a full time job or any real resposibilites, so I might as well lose sleep over this. I plan to make hundreds of costom tiles before the release of Blades of Avernum, so if you're into using costom tiles, you may want to bookmark my website, Motekye.8m.com[/url]. Note that it's popup city until I pay for Hasta La Banner. Also note the articulate yet simple design I've made and notice the vibrant colours which do not in any way resemble this post. Anywho, you can probably count on me as a steady source of BoA tiles, long rants and other great things. Please respond Via this forum or my e-mail if you have any ideas you would like me to make tiles out of. Right now, I'm focusing on item tiles for the time being, but any suggestion is valued. Also be sure to check out my scenerio when I finish it in late 2003.

Sorry about the link too, www.motekye.8m.com[/url]. I will avoid overlooking these things in the future.

There doesn't appear to be anything posted.

Also, BoA won't come out for eight-twelve months at the least.

Finally, custom terrain and custom monsters are much more valuable than custom items. If you finish your item work, I encourage you to work on that too.

It most likely seemed like nothing was posted because you probably didn't click on the BoA link at my site, allow me to provide a direct link, Here[/url].

sorry about the inconvienience, and yes, I have made an entire player character set which I intend to post on monday. I am also working on Kobold and Bear monster sets. As for terrain, I'm looking for textures to adapt for walls and floors, but it's difficult and labourous work. However I hope you find something of use on my site for the time being.

No, I went there and it was exactly the same as the main page. Where are the images supposed to be posted? At the bottom?

I should've known.

My website uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS),
there may be a conflict with Netscape or your web software. If you have a version of IE 5.0 or later the site should show up properly.

If you see a box with a red X underneath my Blogg, it may be a server issue. It seems to display fine from my system, I should've posted a warning for Mac Users, My most sincere apologies.

I will, however take your advice regarding landscape and monster tiles to heart. I have already begun developing many humanoid (NPC) creature sets as well as the monster sets I began earlier.

Also, regarding the release date of BoA, I am gitty with anticipation and need something to occupy myself, I might as well be productive.

I'm using IE 5.0 (also on a Mac) and none of the images show up. They're all broken link symbols.

Its possible to get the images (for me at leats - IE 5.0 on mac) only if I click on the images and download them to disk with the popup menu

It should be easier to use the popup menu to open them in a new window. Not a day goes by that I don't wish I could do that on my crummy Windows laptop.

I seem to recall Jeff saying that items with custom graphics will be able to be taken from one scenario to another.

I'm completely stumped as to why these pictures don't show up on your macs. The seem to show perfectly on three PCs I've used. I beleive it's a compatability issue with my host server. If anyone especially wants to see my item sets, leave your e-mail and I'll and I'll send them to you.

On another note, I've taken the advice of Drakefyre and have bugun on a set of outdoor tiles. I expect to upload some new tiles by Monday the 12th. I'll tell my web hoster about your problem and I'm sure they'll try to figure out what's wrong.
