Another wonderful free gift from the Vintyri homeworld! Thank you for
this kind gesture.

One question: Having extracted the SS1 files and checked them out in the
FM8 symbol tool bar, I can see the difference between the files
extracted from ss1btb and ss1btl but the addition of ss1sla doesn't seem
to have added anything that shows any great difference. Is the
difference intentionally subtle or is there some other explanation?

Symbol Set 2 of the free and open Vintyri (TM) Cartographic Collection
raster mapping symbols now is available for download. This set includes
symbols in 10 catalogs with a total download size of 121 MB as well as a
38-page PDF that tells you how to install Symbol Set 2 and gives you
tips on
how to use it. Together with Symbol Set 1, the Vintyri Cartographic
Collection now compises 467 raster symbols for mapping cities, villages
other settlements. Of course, more symbol sets still are coming in the
Vintyri collection. In a departure from most of our work, the symbols in
this set are not always based upon specific historical buildings in
but rather are based upon aerial rooftop photos of preserved Middle Ages
quarters of some European cities. There's a reason for this. In Symbol
1, we gave you the kinds of walls and towers that surrounded a Middle
town. In Symbol Set 2, we wanted to give you the opportunity to quickly
out the area inside of those walls. The buildings in Symbol Set 2 along
the parts and externals in the set can be used to make almost any kind
building your fantasy RPG map needs. The PDF booklet tells you where and
to find additional structural parts that aren't in our collection. With
set, you should have little trouble making any building you need. Future
symbol sets will concentrate mostly upon specific historical models.
Set 2 consists of 4 catalogs of base buildings, 4 catalogs of generic
buildings and one catalog each of parts and external structures. The
buildings are simple roofs with crests. It's up to you to add the
and other parts you need. The generic buildings are complete, ready to
structures that also can be modified through the use of additional
The last two catalogs give you parts and external structural elements to
make such modifications.
