11/12/17 - Created the Rivers and Roads add-on to be used with the set, as well as updated the example tiled document to include the most recent changes.

9/24/2017 - Added a borderless version of the tiles by request.

1/15/2017 - Added a "Dense Forest/Jungle" tile, as well as cave overlay tiles for each biome in version 2. The example tiled file has been updated with examples of these.

A collection of hexes for fantasy maps. Developed for use in a GURPs, I've included some of the basic tiles in the GURPs ruleset, including hilly and wooded versions the basic tiles.

This tileset was made to use be used in Tiled set to Hexagonal orientation, with 32 tile width, 28 height, and 16 side length. There's also an offset of 2 on the Y axis in the tileset's properties.

All of that is set up correctly in the example file, and you can get Tiled from itch.io here: https://thorbjorn.itch.io/tiled

I'm still working on a roads and rivers set, as well as some additional overlay tiles like caves or ruins. I'm also working on whole new biomes, so if you have any suggestions or requests, please leave them in the comments!

Payment not at all required, but all donations will go towards continuation of this hex set, and starting of interior sets.

When I open the example file, Tiled asks me to help it find some files I don't have--specifically, tileset data files for the roads and rivers. I only have the base images, and I don't know how to reconstruct what it wants. Please help! ;_;

Ack! Sorry, I should have included an example without the rivers and roads. Two options, you can grab Fantasy Hex Tiles - Addon - Rivers and Roads v1 which is separate from the the base tile and use Tiled to locate the file, or, in the tiled file, just delete the Overlays and Rivers layers and it'll get rid of all the error boxes. (Note that cave entrances which are in the base png are on the overlay layer and will go away as well in this case)

Hopefully that helps? Let me know if you still have any issues <3

OK, that helped. Haven't gotten it working on the example map, quite, but I was able to get everything going for the map I'm working on, which is the important bit. Thank you, and I appreciate the help!

Which version is the newest version ?

Or which of these versions is the best version ?

Version 2 is the newest version, it has some drawn in borders (so you'll clearly see the hexes), borderless is the same without the borders and the rivers and roads is an additional tile sheet that can be used in conjunction with the base set.

If you're just looking to throw something together quick I'd just grab the base version 2 and the tiled example if you wanna see it in practice. You can easily swap to the  borderless or add roads later in Tiled

Hope that helps? :D

Thanks for your reply. It helps me a lot. :)

Are these tiles really free? Come on, is it a prank? haha' Joking man, your tile(set) are SO cool! May I use them in my game? I can assure you a place in the credits!

For sure! Thank you so much for liking the work. I'd love to see them used in the final project <3

These tiles are lush! I see all the comments are pretty old, have the roads and rivers been abandoned? They would really round it off.

Hey! Thanks so much! Yeah, I've been a bit swamped lately and haven't had time to do much personal work and I still haven't figured out the best way to do roads for hexes. Work should be dying down after this week though, and I'll see if I can update the set soon :D

Are there roads that run North/South and East/West?

Technically no, I went with the most simple solution of only using 4 of the 6 sides of the hex. You  can make roads in cardinal directions by alternating some of those roads though: 

Nice, that works!


Hi, love the tiles! Are we really able to use these in our games?


Thanks so much, and of course! Just a little credit or link to my itch.io would be nice. I'd also love to see what ya do with them :D

Why thank you and of course I'll link :D

Nice work!

i love that tiles, thank you for sharing!

I think you could add more tiles for the castles, so that each of them got 3 tiles. I would also appreciate some units to move around.

I think i will use them in one of my projects.

Thanks so much and thank you for the suggestions! I'm not sure if I wanna do units yet cause that might be kinda specific, but I may do some eventually. Please let me know if you end up using them :)

Beautiful, thanks so much!

Thank you! <3

This looks amazing!

Thanks so much! I'd love to see anything you make with them, and feel free to let me know if there's any terrain types that are missing that'd be cool to add, I've already got a few in mind for version 2! :D
