Cropland Ground Tiles



EASY TO BUILD: Customize and print a variety of cropland tiles for fantasy and historical settings with this kit of 4 unique layered PDFs and 16 fully-prepared ready-to-print PDFs. To create these tiles, you'll need some matte photo paper to print on, a hobby knife, a metal ruler, and a cutting mat. For best results, you can mount your tile prints to heavier material such as foamcore, illustration board, or cereal box cardboard using a glue stick.

These tiles were originally released in 2010, and have been revamped in 2024 with new graphics and more detailed instructions. Your purchase will include both the original 2010 and the renewed 2024 versions.

15MM-30MM SCALE: These tiles are designed at the popular 28mm-30mm gaming scale, and can be shrunk down to smaller gaming scales and model railroad scales by simply adjusting the print size percentage on your printer. Tips and advice for altering the scale are included.

MULTI-LAYERED PDFs: This kit features 4 multi-layered PDFs offering a variety of skins. These texture layers can be mixed and combined in various ways, giving you control over the appearance of your tiles before your print them.

You get all of these texture options:

  • Patchy grass
  • Several types of crops
  • Optional furrows
  • Border stones
  • 1" grid overlay
  • And more!

SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS: You'll need the free program Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to use the multi-layered PDFs. Ready-to-print tiles are also included for your convenience, and those can be opened using most graphics programs.

DIMENSIONS: Each tile is 6x6 inches square.

t's been over a year since I downloaded this file, I downloaded in again to see if the problem with this file was ever fixed. It has not been fixed all four files are just a patch of ground and that is it! There are other files I have downloaded from this vender and many of them are not complete. I really like the look of these models. However, I will pass, on buying any more of these products.

You need to use an actual PDF viewer software in order to turn on the crop layers. Your browser *will not work*. In your PDF viewer, therre are layers for multiplle types of ground and all the different crops that you can turn on.

The files have been updated to include individual, differentiated tiles. Hopefully, they will be to your liking.

Note: I am NOT the creator of this product.

Okay it is now 2023 and have yet to get what I had paid for, I have deleted this file and redownload it several times just to make sure that there was no error and all I get is still a patch of ground. Don't waste your money.

Have you tried to change the layers? I know on many PDF's that they just change the layer if the size is all the same.

You'll need to use the free program Adobe Acrobat Reader to access the optional layers in the PDFs. Don't try to open the files in your internet browser. Make sure you download the files to your computer and open them with Adobe Acrobat Reader. You'll need to click the Layers icon (it looks like two stacked diamonds) and then click the button next to the word "Layers" or "Layers.indd" which will then reveal the entire palette of optional graphics.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
