:)...WORK IN PROGRESS...  :)

Comments: If you've got any information to add to the database, suggestions for the TLB collection, any comments and criticism, you can just post them in this thread
(as I guess most people will be hesitant to post here, although I could always delete your posts here once I've read them, so you could post here, too. Your choice.)

Help: If you'd like to help out by posting a few explanatory sentences on creating and using drop-in TLBs or point me to an UANL article that already does that, that would be much appreciated (something like a step-by-step guide for dummies). And: You can also add your own wallset combinations if you like, with or without screenshots.

ADDING DROP-IN WALLSETS TO YOUR DESIGN

Once you've created or chosen an appropriate wallset TLB for your design,
rename it using the following pattern:

8x8D#0**.TLB

Replace # with the number of the row you want the wallset to appear in
when using the editor (1-3).

Replace ** with the number of the default wallset you want to overwrite in your design,
according to this table:

ROCK A:01
ROCK B:02
ADOBE:03
WEBS:04
BRICKS:05
CAVE:06
WOOD A:07
WOOD B:08
WASTELAND:09
MARBLE:10
TREES A:11
TREES B:12
CORAL A:13
CORAL B:14
LAVA:15
FIREBRICKS:16



Example:
To replace CORAL B in the second row, rename the replacement TLB to:
8x8D2014.TLB

          ADDING DROP-IN BACKDROPS TO YOUR DESIGN

Once you've created or chosen an appropriate backdrop TLB for your design,
rename it using the following pattern:

BACK10**.TLB

Replace ** with the number of the default backdrop you want to overwrite in your design,
according to this table:

STONE FLOOR:01
MARBLE:02
CAVE:03
FOREST:04
CORAL:05
LAVA:06
ADOBE:07
WOOD:08
BRICKS:09
FIREBRICKS:10
SWAMP:11
DARK CORAL:12
WASTELAND:13
OUTDOOR GRASS:32
OUTDOOR GRASS NIGHT:33
OUTDOOR MUD:34
OUTDOOR MUD NIGHT:35
OUTDOOR STONE:36
OUTDOOR STONE NIGHT:37


Example:
To replace OUTDOOR GRASS rename your new backdrop TLB to:
BACK1032.TLB

A COLLECTION OF DROP-IN TLBS FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE

Ready for re-naming and importing into your design. Information on authorship and source is provided in the screenshots, in case you want to experiment with certain walls yourself. Feel free to share your own wallset combinations here or point out wallsets you'd like to see included in this collection! (I haven't tested all of the wallsets in UA yet, so if you notice there's something wrong with a TLB, please notify me!)

To download any of the files, you need to right-click and save target as...
Don't click on them or your browser will try to display the content of the TLB files.

FOOTNOTE: I had to adjust the palette of the first wall to the one of the last wall when trying to import them with TOOLBOX, otherwise the mushrooms would have had buggy yellow spots on it.

 
8x8-Wilderness2-byKazKeith.TLB / Back10-BridgeDay-byKaz-Keith.TLB / Back10-BridgeNight-byKaz-Keith.TLB / Back10-GrassNight-byKaz-Keith.TLB

Buildings & Interior (*POSSIBLE SPOILERS!*)

 
8x8d-Town1-byKaz-Keith.TLB / 8x8d-Town2-byKazKeith.TLB
FOOTNOTE: I had to fix the low wall in slot 1 because it wouldn't come out right when imported with TOOLBOX (it was shifted upwards and the bottom was cut off).

 
8X8DKZVL1.TLB / 8X8DKZVL2.TLB

 
8X8DKZVL3.TLB / 8X8DKZVL4.TLB

 
8X8DKZVL5.TLB / BACK1VLD.TLB / BACK1VLN.TLB

8x8d-Furniture-byKaz-Keith.TLB / SPRI0-Cabinet1-byKaz-Keith.TLB / SPRI0-Cabinet2-byKaz-Keith.TLB / SPRI0-Cabinet3-byKaz-Keith.TLB
FOOTNOTE: The Furniture wallset actually uses the CAVE template, not FIREBRICKS (as indicated in the Readme file). The side views of the wall in slot 3 still seem a bit flawed or unfinished.
Each sprite only features one UP CLOSE image as shown above, to import them correctly TOOLBOX had to sort the palette.



8x8d-ChestBarrel%26Bones-byKaz-Keith.TLB / SPRI0-Chest1-byKaz-Keith.TLB / SPRI0-Chest2-byKaz-Keith.TLB / SPRI0-Chest3-byKaz-Keith.TLB

8x8d-ClayBrick-byDebbiRapp.TLB / Back10-ClayBrick-byDebbiRapp.TLB
FOOTNOTE: I had to adjust the palette of the first wall to the one of the last wall when trying to import them with TOOLBOX, otherwise the top half of the fire would have been green.

Dungeons (*POSSIBLE SPOILERS!*)

8x8d-PitLadders-byDrowUATeam.TLB / 8x8d-BrickWallAccessories-byKaz-Keith.TLB
FOOTNOTE: The pit & ladders were imported using the WASTELAND slot 1 and their palette was copied to the empty wall in slot 0.
Both pit and ladders look better in narrow hallways since the nearby/far away side views might look a little odd otherwise.

8x8d-BoulderTrap-byHughesGauthier.TLB

 
8x8d-EOBStone-byKaz-Keith.TLB / Back10-EOBStone-byKaz-Keith.TLB
FOOTNOTE: The pcx files seem to be based on the BRICKS templates. This info is missing in the accompanying text file. But there's something else of interest to be found in it: "If it so pleases, I have more pieces based on this set, including: unfitted peasant stone wall, stone wall with wooden roof, mossy stone wall, climbing ivy stone wall, and spell-shattered stone wall." Whatever happened to these walls, Keith? Do you've still got them? I for one would be very pleased to catch a glimpse of them! :)

FOOTNOTE: So far this wallset only consists of two walls, there's still much room for improvement and I think it would be worth it. But I still shy away from messing with palettes...

Okay, next time I'll try that.

BTW, the gallery is getting more awesome by the day.

Probably not during the next few days anymore as I might not find the time but thanks for the encouragement.  :)
Keep the suggestions, requests, advices (and praise  ;D ) coming, anyway!

Great collection! I had no idea how many different kind of wall sets had been created (or, in some cases, adopted from other games, which is of course also not so easily done) by FRUA users. Some of these walls are very inspiring to do something similar for DC.
