Isometric Smart Object maps
This looks amazing but I am having a hard time wrapping my mind around how you would use it. Is there anyway you could make a demo video of you using it? Or has anybody made a video using it?
Hi, Pre-purachse question, perhaps silly but... I do not understand the main difference between the different maps generators you sell....mould you explain it please? I am really interested in your works. Thanks in advance! Dom
Sorry again.. I mean, map 2 includes all the others (except elements)? I can easily create a map like you show in YouTube drawing with pen tool over a screenshot to create a shape? I can use an image directly or a vector shape? Thanks again?
Hi! Yes, you can do everything what is shown in the videos: http://www.3d-map-generator.com/?page_id=15070 All elements that are in the description, are in the download. Cheers
Hi, Fantastic job man! I am testing it and when I Add Top Layer I get a "fatal error" but it let me go on anyway but.. if I edit the top layer I have to "hide" the grid to make it work else it comes with when I save. With or without grid, when I save the editing of the top layer it loses the given surface (gras, sandy ..). It becames a flat green like at begin. How can I solve it? Then.. When I create a 3d map I can add layerand make it thicker; is it possible to remove it later in case? One more question, how an I make a map with different surfaces? I need one that in the center is desertic. It no idea how to make it and keep work on it to put together to the rest. Thank a you a lot!!! Domes
Hi Domes, thanks for purchasing :)
Flat surface: The green layer is your original shape. The "grid" and your original shape are only for your better orientation. You must hide both layers before you save the top-layer. Please, have a look at the tutorials. The links you will find (only) in the instructions PDF. The tutorial name is " Top Layer Designer"
Layer thickness: No, you can only add layer.
Different Layer Surfaces: You can insert your own surfaces texture in the Top Layer Designer. Or you can use for the "desert" for example, the sand structure. Watch the video "Lake cross-section" of this: http://www.3d-map-generator.com/?page_id=15070 For "Different Layer Colors" please watch the tutorial.
Hope this is helpful,
Absolutely beautiful, as always ;)
Many Thanks, Ricard!!
Hi! That Generator looks great! I love how it worked v1 and the icons are awesome! I bought the Generator v.1 and some icons set ... I was wondering: 1- Is there any discount for buyers of v.1.0? 2- I would be really interested if in the future you plan a flat generator with flat icons (not isometric), more like a frontal view... Thanks! Dani
I just bought v2, I couldn't wait to use it :-)
Hi Dani, many thanks! 1. No, sry. 2 .I think it gives it enough on GR ;) Cheets, mic
Hi bought your plugin ... love your work ... works like a charm .... I have question i want to recreate a 2d layout plan like this --> http://www.abirealty.in/images/layout1.jpg to 3d layout .. but I will need a 3d top view similar to this --> http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs14/f/2007/047/6/6/3D_Floor_Plan_by_zodevdesign.jpg Is this possible in this plugin ..?
Hi and many thanx!! No, this is not possible. Mic
In the next version update will please you include this feature ..?
:D No, it´s a 3D map generator - not a floor plan builder ;) But you can improvise. Here's an example for you: Full view: http://www.the-orange-box.com/grpix/i3dmg2/3d_map_floor_plan_example.png
I have Photoshop CC 2015 and Adobe Extension Manager 188.8.131.52 on a 64-bit Mac running 10.10.3. I just tried to install 3D_Map_Generator_2_CC2014_CC2015.zxp and got the following error message "Failed to install the extension ‘3dmapgenerator2.extension’. Please make sure the manifest.xml of this extension is valid and the Extension Manager recognizes at least one product which the extension supports." Am I doing something wrong or is there an update forthcoming soon?
Hi, we have the same setting on our test Mac, but without install problems. The only thing I have found is this: https://github.com/guideguide/support/issues/122 Hope that will help, mic
Hi There! Thanks for this awesome tool! I seem to be having some problems with size. Before I use 3D Map generator, my image size is 1920 x 1080. (I intend to create a video in After Effects with camera zoom effect and export at full HD). My problem is that when I click "Right" and the map generates, it changes my image size. When I change the image size back to 1920 x 1080, the map stretches, even if I lock the layer. I would just like to increase my image size and have the background stretch out further to this larger size. Any help would be appreciated. :)
I have since solved my own problem! After the map stretches and I change the image to the correct size, I just use the free transform tool to fix the stretching! Thank you again for this cool tool!! :)
Hi Still on the license bit. I have a template game I created and want to sell it. I have used some of the icons in the template. Am I allowed to sell the end product with the icons as part of the graphics?
Hi isaac2k2! No, it's not allowed to sell the icons. Please read 6. in the tool license: "For example: You license a font and use it in a poster template. You can’t include the font in the poster template download, but you can link buyers of the template to the font." Regards, mic
Using latest update of CC2015. Getting this error: Failed to install the extension “Original_3d_Map_Generator_2”. Please make sure manifest.xml of this extension is valid and the Extension Manager recognises at least one product which the extension support.
Hi, please read the install instructions ( for your Photoshop version ) and watch the short install video tutorial. Photoshop CC-2014/2015 do not support the Extension Manager! Cheers, mic
Hello, I just bought the generator for my Photoshop CC 2015. Recently updated today, however, when installing the generator extension, an error message shows the following message: The extension cannot be installed, it requires Photoshop versions in range of inclusively between 14.0 and 14.9. So how can I install it to on my version of Photoshop. This is my Adobe Photoshop CC version: Adobe Photoshop Version: 2015.0.1 Thank you.
Hi araljowder, please download the latest 3D Map Genetator 2 update and follow the install instructions! mic

Still not downloading, the error message that I'm getting now says: Failed to install the extension "Original_3d_Map_Generator_2". Please make sure manifest.xml of this extension is valid and the Extension Manager recognises at least one product which the extension support.
Yes, of course! CC-2015 do not support the extension manager. Please read the instructions and use the right installations files.

I noticed the panel for the first map generator worked for CS5. Are there any plans (or would you consider) making the plugin for v2 work on CS5? :)
Hi! At the moment there is no plan for a CS5 panel version. I think the demand is too low and the effort for the development too high.
Orange Box.... you mention that you have fixed the CC 2014 problem....how do we update? ReDownload the application? or is there a patch? thanks dan
Hi! There is no fix or patch. Simple download again. The brand new CC-2014 Panel is in the package ;)
great...thanks again for all your help dan
Your product looks like great and I want to buy.
But... I tested your free version and I received this error:

Hi, you need min. Photoshop CS6 to install the panel version. The action set works from CS4. Cheers, mic
