Terrain Hexes: Medieval-Fantasy Locations 1.2
This is a set of lovingly hand-painted 2D medieval-fantasy hex location tiles suitable for an RPG overworld, a strategy game, or boardgame-like visuals.
Hex tiles are included as lossless pngs saved as individual images. Roads are also included as individual png images.
- expands upon my “Terrain Hexes: Basic Set” for those interested in making medieval-fantasy games
- 66 hex tiles (25 or so unique location types, some on different terrain types, some with multiple variations)
- painted at 256×384 pixels so that towers, mountains, and trees can overlap the tiles behind
- includes 85 road tiles for all possible permutations of hex grid roads (some of single variation, some of two)
- includes 117 “decor” sprites which can be placed on any background terrain texture (these include versions of the hex locations with the underlying terrain removed)
Location types included:
- farmland (on plains)
- village (on plains, dirt; includes small variation)
- basic castle (on plains, dirt)
- castle variations, some ruined (on mountains, marsh, dirt)
- pyramids & ruins (in desert)
- oasis (in desert)
- graveyard (in marsh)

More on roads
These have been named in the following format: hexRoad-[direction bit key]-[variation number].
The direction bit key gives a zero or one depending on if the road attaches to that direction in the order of NORTHWEST, NORTHEAST, EAST, SOUTHEAST, SOUTHWEST, WEST. (Think of it like a clock.) So, for example, a straight east-west road would be “001001”, while a t-junction connection to West, East, and Southwest would be “001011”. The variation number is included so that every piece of road of a certain type and direction doesn’t look exactly the same. For most, there’s only a 00, but some of the roads of a 01 variation as well. (There were a LOT of road pieces for these, let me tell you, so I didn’t do many variations.)
If this is giving you trouble, feel free to drop me an email and I’ll try to do a better job explaining it. Or, likely, it’s simple enough to just look at the images and figure it out.
These hexagonal terrain tiles are intended to be drawn so that tiles in rows lower on the screen are drawn overtop of tiles in rows higher on the screen. This will ensure that trees, hills, and mountains will appear to stand out. There’s also an underground layer for land, water, and void that you can draw to give the impression of additional depth to your game.
