Vintyri Symbol Set 2
|Description:||Symbol Set 2 of the free and open Vintyri™ Cartographic Collection of raster mapping symbols now is available for download. This set includes 349 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 and 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 Europe 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 Set 1, we gave you the kinds of walls and towers that surrounded a Middle Ages town. In Symbol Set 2, we wanted to give you the opportunity to quickly fill out the area inside of those walls. The buildings in Symbol Set 2 along with the parts and externals in the set can be used to make almost any kind of building your fantasy RPG map needs. The PDF booklet tells you where and how to find additional structural parts that aren't in our collection. With this set, you should have little trouble making any building you need. Future symbol sets will concentrate mostly upon specific historical models. Symbol Set 2 consists of 4 catalogs of base buildings, 4 catalogs of generic buildings and one catalog each of parts and external structures. The base buildings are simple roofs with crests. It's up to you to add the chimneys and other parts you need. The generic buildings are complete, ready to use structures that also can be modified through the use of additional parts. The last two catalogs give you parts and external structural elements to make such modifications.
