HM3: New chainmail pattern

I just updated the main HeroMachine 3 applet with a new pattern, meant to look a little more like chainmail:

It’s the last pattern in the “Patterns” tab. Let me know if you would like any tweaks to it. I don’t plan on adding any more patterns, each one increases the file size by 10% or so.

  1. The stippled lines COULD be a little closer together, but this isn’t bad. I’ll definitely be using it.

    I was kinda hoping for a wood-grain pattern at some point :-(

  2. I definitely defer to your expertise on the chainmail lines since they were your invention to begin with. I’ll repost in a moment.

  3. OK, try it now — decreased the space between lines by about a half. Also changed it so the stipples are all the same size.

  4. I understand not adding more patterns… is there any way to add a sizing adjuster to the patterns that already exist?

  5. The solution for that, Baize, is for me to put all the patterns currently on that tab into the “Patterns-Standard” set so you can manipulate them just like any other object — scale, rotate, change colors, etc. I’ll get to that at some point.

  6. Right on! :)

    I like this one: it fits in with a project I’m already doing. Thanks!

  8. This is good, as I was going to work on a medival set. Also, when is the next character contest?

    YES !!!

    I’d definitely like that :)

  10. Too bad, I was still hoping for a pattern for mystical inscriptions. The one line of runes in BladesTwo section is insuffiecient. Perhaps a section under insignia devoted to mystical designs would work with masking.

  11. Or a line of mystical/magical/ancient/tribal designs under insignia…

  12. @Jeff #2 – Sorry, I got busy at work yesterday and forgot about this post. The tighter pattern is definitely an improvement. Well done. I’ll definitely be using it.

  13. Did this replace the chain mail pattern that looked like rows of the letter “c”, or was that never a standard pattern? I really like the “c” pattern chain mail, and would love to be able to apply it to some of the female tops.

  14. There was never a Pattern for that, no. I did have some items in the old version that had that style built in though.
