Rolling Line – How to Make a Good Layout

Tips for Making a Good Layout

Personally the main key is good colors, try and have a unique color theme (use the custom color generator). Or better yet use a real-world photo as a poster, then copy colors directly off that.

You can press Enter when pointing at a poster to copy the color on the image that you are pointing at. It’s excellent for making a realistic color pallete.

In terms of map making, clutter does wonders for making maps feel more professional. have lots of scrap piles, bins, plants, rocks, bushes, etc in your map. I personally love making a scrap metal storage yard.

Use lots of variety in props, try to avoid making lots of the same building/same exact type and color or tree.

The prop spray gun is your friend, I think. I personally like to start (and this is good for more rural, nature filled layouts), after placing down my tables, to find a nice base natural color, usually a vibrant, bright grassy green, color the tables that, then load up the prop spray gun with tons of mixed foliage, filling the whole custom table with that, and basically carve out the space for building and things by removing bits of the foliage and placing things in their place.

I turned my love for games from a hobby into a job back in 2005, since then working on various gaming / entertainment websites. But in 2016 I finally created my first website about video games – Gameplay Tips. And exactly 4 years later, Game Cheat Codes was created – my second website dedicated to legal game cheats. My experience with games started back in 1994 with the Metal Mutant game on ZX Spectrum computer. And since then, I’ve been playing on anything from consoles, to mobile devices.
