We are happy to announce that Symbol Set 6 – Isometric Cities is ready to be released into the wild as a public beta version this week. Mike Schley has created another set of amazing city symbols – this time in isometric perspective, giving you an unparalleled panoramic view across the landscape of your cities and towns.

CathedralThe Isometric Cities set features hundreds of high-resolution symbols and textures and all the tools, effects and templates you need to create breath-taking city views of your own. All buildings and objects, be they houses, workshops city walls, tombs and crypts, boats and wagons, or shrubs and trees – come in four cardinal views so you see and display them from all sides.

We will send out a separate product announcement later this week (via email and blog) from which you will be able purchase SS6 , and you will get immediate access to the beta version. It includes all artwork, tools and styles, and the Essentials guide. You can report any problems and issues to ralf@profantasy.com and we will fix them for the finished version, which should not be long in the making.

Example MapAs we’ve announced a while ago, we are working on a new Symbol Set by Mike Schley, titled “Isometric Cities” and we are getting close to release now. The artwork by Mike is all done, Sue Daniel has created all the varicolor versions of the symbols, and yours truly is working on the bitmap fills and integrating everything into one coherent package.

The style consists of a large number of isometric building symbols. Each comes in four different views, which can be easily rotated to show the buildings from the four cardinal directions.

The symbols range from glorious gigantic structures like the cathedral above, to small details like graves, boats and market stalls. Naturally – because they are all created by Mike – they fit the Symbol Set 4 and 5 styles very well, and can potentially be used to illustrate cities that you’ve already create with Symbol Set 5 in an isometric view.

Look for the release Symbol Set 6 at the end of the month or in early November. Of course we’ll announce it here and in our newsletter, so keep an eye on those to not miss this new wonderful Symbol Set by Mike Schley.
