a simple hand-drawn tileset for hex kit
I created some tiles for Hex Kit that were meant to solve some issues that I had with existing tilesets, specifically:
- Colours were generally linked to terrain icons, which is less use if you want to make a black-and-white map. I split out my terrain icons from coloured hexes, so you could have a colour layer that you could easily turn off while using the same icons, admittedly at the cost of having to do two layers.
- I never found that the roads in tileset packs were good, and also they frequently linked to hex corners rather than faces. I may have gone overboard with this, as this pack has eight different colours of multiple variants of connections between hex faces 1-6. But there are a lot of roads if you want them. They can also be used as arbitrary dividing lines.
- Building icons tended to be far too "fantasy". The ones in this pack are more generic and also include tower blocks for high-density urban sci-fi/modern use.

It's free and there is no restriction on how you can use the tiles (apart from not simply reselling the whole pack unmodified).
