Let's create a School map that can be integrated into Gather Town
Gather Town is a video-calling space that lets multiple people hold separate conversations in parallel, walking in and out of those conversations just as easily as they would in real life.
With the help of Icograms Designer, you can create an isometric (3D-looking) map of a school building, yard, camp, or any room. Then you can integrate it into Gather Town as a background image and organize your remote lesson or any other event.
Creating graphics for Gather Town is similar to other graphics, but has a few differences.
At first glance the grids in Icograms and Gather Town look different, but they are exactly the same. Both grids have the same position of the main points and the same distance between them 32px. For best results, we recommend to put most of our objects in 200% scale, but you can scale on your own.
When creating a background for Gather Town, consider the distance between objects (impassable tiles). Leave enough free space between the main points so that the avatar can walk there. To go diagonally, your avatar must take two steps horizontally and one step vertically.
Background and Foreground.
Using Icograms Designer you can create not only a Background but also a Foreground, as we did with the bushes in the image below (don’t forget to make a transparent background for the Foreground image).
In the video below we’ll show you how to create an Education Centre building and it’s interior.
