I know that many people here are involved with creating RPG-style boardgames, so I thought it would be helpful to post a goldmine of a discovery I made yesterday:

http://www.davegh.com/blade/davegh.htm

This website contains hundreds, if not thousands, of high-resolution terrain textures that would be great for prototypes. Tiles include floors, walls, architectural details, and a whole lot more.

Enjoy!

Any other tips

Anyone else have tips like that for other textures? Perhaps fonts or clipart?

Close-up textures

Here's where I have found some useful close-up textures:

I hope everyone

knows about http://office.microsoft.com/clipart/ . They have a very generous clip art section, among other things. All of the clip art is vector based, so you can copy&paste it into your favorite vector drawing application such as corel draw, macromedia freehand, illustrator, etc (I.E. you don't even have to own office to use this site's vast collection of clip art).

Are there any other clip art collections online such as Microsoft's? I briefly checked Corel and they didn't seem to have a free site. How about Adobe, Star Office, Macromedia, etc?

XXOOCC has mentioned http://www.100000freecliparts.com/clipart/index.html a few times, but the site is spam heavy, and it's not really clip art, it's gif and jpeg images (although there's still a lot of great pictures there, it's not really ideal).

Any others?

Take a look at

http://www.ulead.com/download/freedownload.htm

Ulead PhotoImpact come with a nice set of textures, fonts, effects. There are also some other free downloads that might be useful.

Another site with image/textures : http://www.mayang.com/textures/

Sweet! Good find, and timely too! I'm working on a prototype that needs textures (floors, grass, etc.), This should do nicely!
