For instructions on how to get started with OpenForge, we have a set of tutorials. Want to sell OpenForge prints? Want to use OpenForge designs in your product, check out the license FAQ.
OpenForge is now a patron supported project. I use the resources that my patrons give me in order to get the resources to let me create more sophisticated tiles with a greater level of detail. Please, support me, and I’ll deliver an ongoing stream of awesome gaming terrain. You can find more about OpenForge and Masterwork Tools at our:
Here I'll show how to assemble a 2x4 section of docks. You will need:
- supports_beam.4x.* (print 2)
- brace.x2 (print 2)
- brace.x2.join.end2end (if you want to join more then one together at the seam
- 2 pilings per brace
So, how do you pick the pilings? 1x/2x/3x/4x is how many squares tall. If it's 2x, that means the dock surface will be at 2x high. 2x+ means the dock base will be at 2x high.
You can decide if you want to glue the braces on or press fit them so you can swap braces out.
Add the supports, and use the braces to make sure they are far enough apart
Glue the supports to the decking
glue the pilings to the braces with the squarish chunk under the bottom of the brace
This is a join brace that lets you attach two docks together end to end
Spray paint in flat black primer. For paints I use Raw Umber, Burtn Sienna and Honey Brown from Americana.
Paint the parts in the raw umber all over. Don't get in all the cracks, you want some black showing from underneath.
Lightly fleck the burnt sienna over the parts. I generally paint with a fairly empty brush, and hit it with the sides. (Note: wrong paint pictured)
Drybrush with the honey brown
