Hex Kit: The Black Spot Tileset



Hex Kit: The Black Spot
is a tile set for the Hex Kit map making desktop application in the style of old world treasure maps. Included are over 500 new tile illustrations for both vertical and horizontal hex map orientations! Please note! This tile set requires Hex Kit 2.0 to work in flat-top orientation!

How To Install:

Drag both folders to wherever you keep your Hex Kit tiles, and keep them separate. Then open Hex Kit and import the first one, then import the second one. There are two versions of this tile set: one for flat top orientation and one for pointy top orientation. Keeping them separate makes them easier to use! When importing, pay no attention to how the tiles hang out of the yellow sizing hex on the import screen because that is intentional. All you have to do is hit the 'Save' button. If you did it right your tile selector drop down box should have both a 'HK-The Black Spot' and 'HK-The Black Spot (flat)' options.

This tileset comes with two individual sets in both pointy top and flat top orientations, read the above instructions carefully to keep the sets separate.

I'm confused by the license here, and want some clarification. If I make a map using this tile set, can I include that map in a commercially produced adventure module? The license makes it seem like maps are okay, but individual tiles are not. Or is the rule "zero commercial use of any kind, including completed maps as part of another project"?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
