Random add to the HeadMaleStandard set just now in case you're feeling mythological:


New Companions

I just threw the following three items into the Companions-Standard set. Enjoy!



To complement the recently-added "Rooms" set of items, I've just released "Background-Furniture" for HeroMachine3, featuring such items as:


And more! As usual, you may have to refresh the page or clear your cache for the new option to appear.

The idea behind these is that you can use them either alone or in combination with the Rooms to dress an environment. They're all modern designs, but if they work well for you let me know and I can start on some fantasy and/or sci-fi settings as well. If there are additional furniture items you'd like to see, feel free to speak up in the comments.

Have fun!

Head Materials Added

I've just added the following items to Head-Male-Standard to match the bodies in Body-Male-Materials:


Male Body Materials Set Added

I've just added a new set of items to HeroMachine3, "Body-Male-Materials". It has the following options:


As usual, you might have to clear your cache for the new stuff to appear.

From left to right and top to bottom, they represent a direct translation of the options in the same set for HeroMachine 2. They are:

  • Banded metal (already exists in another set);
  • Crystal (already exists in another set);
  • Concrete;
  • Earth/rock;
  • Lava/dirt with veins/blobby stuff;
  • Classic riveted robot;
  • Wood;
  • Shiny metal;
  • Slime/water;
  • Air/clouds/vapor;
  • Classic "Human Torch" style flame lines

I haven't broken them into pieces because a) I'm lazy and hate doing that and b) I wanted to see if there were any additional materials you'd want to see here. I think it makes more sense to have the full set available up front, then all the pieces later, to save so much scrolling.

Crystalline Head

Fabien raised the good point that a crystal body needs a crystal head, which I'm pretty sure must be an ancient Buddhist saying or something. Regardless, HeadMaleStandard now features this piece:


As usual, you might have to clear your browser's cache for the new item to show up.

Crystalline Body

I've just added the following crystalline body to Body-Male-Alternate. Female version pending. Enjoy!


Going to the Dogs

I've just uploaded the "Companion-Dogs" set of items for HeroMachine 3 featuring some from the existing Companions and a lot of brand new ones. Hope you like them!


The Room is Now Available

I've just updated HeroMachine 3 with a new set of items, "Background-Rooms". Currently they're all domestic home style interiors, though more exotic stuff I am sure can come later. Before I do too many of these I wanted to get some feedback as to how they work.

The main drawback is that the Patterns don't really work all that well with them, but I think that's probably just something we'll have to live with for now.


What do you think about furniture?

I'm considering adding a set of items to the "Background" slot that would contain set decoration types of things like beds, chairs, walls, doors, etc. Stuff like this:


Would that sort of thing be helpful?
