    Hi, I'm a newcomer to this forum. I am surprised to see that in DD3 there are no wood walls available. If I select a wood floor fill for my wall then it has planks and nails that don't fit a wall. I have read an existing discussion on wood walls but when I follow the instructions for creating a new type of wall I am again just finding wood floors available for my fill. I think I must be missing something, surely it is possible to design a floor plan with wood walls? Your help would be appreciated.

    The only wood fills I know of without nails, etc. are in some of the Annuals (ie Naomi VanDoren and Mike Schley), as well as the CSUAC add-ons - if you have any of those you can import the fill, create a new Drawing Tool and use any of those fills.

    Wooden walls are unfortunately somewhat lacking in Base DD3. There is the 'Woodgrain Bitmap' fill, but it is not the best.

    There are some wood wall fills in the free Jonathan Roberts dungeon annual, showing the tops of standing beams, which may or may not be what you need.. There are also fills appropriate for wooden walls in Symbol Set 2 and Symbol Set 4.

    While the lack of wood wall fills is a weakness in the base DD3 program, one of the strengths of CC3 is the ability to import bitmap fills and symbols. If you find a suitable fill style (e..g on the web), or if you create one yourself, you can import it into CC3 to use in your maps. Obviously, this isn't as good as already having them built in, but it's a handy feature. If you're interested, check out the information in the online help.

    1. In CC3 (including any of the add-ons), press F1.
      The online help displays.
    2. Click the Index tab.
      Note: If you don't see the tab, click the Show button in the upper left.
    3. In the text field, type import
      The index list will filter as you type.
    4. Double-click bitmaps as fill style in the list.
      The Creating and Importing PNGs and Bitmaps as Fill Styles topic displays. Another helpful topic you can click from that list is pngs and bitmaps as fills.

    Again, it's not as nice as having the fills we want built into the software, but it does still give us flexibility.

    Cheers,
    ~Dogtag

    Hi, I have symbol set 2 for CC3+ and can't find a wood wall there. Can you give me any hint as to where it is?

    I'd rather not buy an annual right now having just purchased CC3+, DD3, and symbol set 2. I'm unfamiliar with the CSUAC add-ons.

    I would like something like the walls for the Manticore's Tale Tavern. I'll take a shot at creating a png and importing it as Dogtag suggested.

    Thanks everyone, if you have any other ideas or info I'd appreciate it.

    The wood in SS2 is called Floorboards. The wood in the Manticore's Tale, unfortunately, I believe, is the Wood Wall in the add-on Schley set. The CSUAC and other free add-ons can be found HERE
