Our New Products

We’re Excited!

We’re excited to start bringing you our range of new products, from T-shirts to mugs. And over time, we’ll add more designs. We’re working hard on some unique, stylised designs too.

Many of our products go through Printful, a print-on-demand (PoD) service, so they’ll ship your products soon after you order.

Custom Designs

We’re also considering custom designs. For example, a family portrait or a selfie on a T-shirt, laptop case or mug, exclusive to you. We have no plans yet, as this is still in its planning stages and whether or not it would be viable.

Furthermore, as part of our Odysee and YouTube video channels merchandise, we are bringing our mascot, Tryggr the Troll, to life.

He’ll appear in various situations and poses, undoubtedly with witty captions or as memes.

Tryggr the Troll was originally created in Daz 3D Studio just for fun. However, over time he became the subject of a story idea and eventually had his own blog for awhile. Eventually, perhaps as a result, he developed his own personality so became the official mascot for the RPG Maker Times blogs and networks.

New Prices, Structure, Products & Other Updates

Terrain Packs (SMILE GAME BUILDER)

All terrain packs for SMILE GAME BUILDER are now priced at $4.99, which will include future packs. Each pack contains between 100 and 200 terrains, excluding stairs and slopes.

I’m working on updating the current assets packs: Ground Terrains Megapack Vol. 1, Wall Terrains Megapack Vol. 1 and House Pack Terrains Megapack Vol. 1.

These updates include various retextures as well as improved stairs and slopes terrains. Existing buyers can redownload the packs free of charge; there’s no need to repurchase them.

New Megapacks

Work has begun on the Ground Terrains Vol. 1 Expansion Pack (available soon), which contains additional terrains for that megapack.

The Wall Terrains Megapack Vol. 1 (and future wall terrains) will come in two flavours: Clean and Dirty.

In addition, work on several new megapacks for use in SMILE GAME BUILDER has begun. These include the Asylum and Manor packs (includes terrains and models), more wall terrains and floor terrains.

I don’t have an ETA date yet. However, the goal is the end of this month (February).

New Upcoming Products

Our range of products (T-shirts, mousemats, etc.) is nearing completion. We’re in the process of finalising the images we want displayed on our products.

Tryggr the Troll, the RPG Maker Times mascot, features strongly in the products. We will, however, have a range of other images, such as Tina’s artwork and various memes.

Bitcoins Payment

We already accept PayPal as the primary payment method.

We’re in the process of implementing Bitcoins as a method of payment. Moreover, we’re looking into other payment options as well for those who don’t have PayPal accounts.

As 2021 Approaches

Moving Into 2021

This year has been a difficult year for all of us, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic and global uncertainty. It affects us all in one form or another. As 2021 approaches, however, I’m reminded of the Latin phrase Ordo Ab Chao. Order Out of Chaos. We will rise up from the ashes, reborn and renewed, if we stand together.

The number 21 is also significant in alchemy: It refers to the number of days required for converting baser metals into silver. This applies to the Gnome Treasure store heading into the New Year.

Our New Products

We’re excited to announce that our range of new products is almost ready. We’re releasing a number of print-on-demand products, including:

  • T-Shirts
  • Mugs
  • Mousemats

Most importantly, our aim is to start releasing the products in November and December in time for Christmas.

Game Assets

We’re also excited with our new and upcoming game assets, notably for SMILE GAME BUILDER and Unity.

Moreover, the following SMILE GAME BUILDER assets packs are now $5.99:

And our plans to release further models and megapacks is underway, including for other engines.

Henge Packs Withdrawn

The Modular Henge and its add-on Modular Henge Snow Add-On SMILE GAME BUILDER packs are withdrawn from sale. They appear as Out of Stock on the store.

Retexture and Remesh

All of the models in the Henge Pack will undergo a complete redesign, including textures and meshes. At the moment, the focus for their redesign is not SMILE GAME BUILDER, but other engines (such as Unity, GameGuru and Unreal). That doesn’t mean, however, that the pack will be unavailable in SMILE GAME BUILDER in the future.

The purpose of the redesign is primarily to improve overall aesthetics, better design and more realistic textures, thereby making it more compatible for other engines.

Modular Henge Pack Texture Update and Expansion

The Modular Henge Pack Vol. 1 is receiving a texture update, which will be available soon.

If you’ve already purchased the pack, you will be able to redownload the pack at no extra cost.

Henge Series Expansion

This is also part of a greater effort to expand the Henge series, providing more variety and modular builds.

Furthermore, I aim to eventually convert the Henge Packs (and future models) into Unity and GameGuru/GameGuru MAX formats.

New Terrain Packs Price $6.99

We decided to reduce the price of our Terrain Packs from $12.99 to $6.99.

This is to make them more accessible to a wider market and SMILE GAME BUILDER (SGB) users in general.

Each of our Terrain Packs, which are part of our "Hi-Tex" range, are meticulously created to bring you high quality terrain assets for use in SMILE GAME BUILDER and to bring an extra dimension to your games. Each one conveniently comes with separate terrains for Stairs and Slopes (where appropriate).

We would like to thank you for your continued support and aim to create more assets and products to the Gnome Treasure store in the future.

New Site Color Theme

We gave Gnome Treasure a new color scheme. It was a choice between subtle blues and pastel purples, but in the end we opted for blue. It somehow felt right and looks cool.

Over the next week or two, we’ll be further tweaking the layout as well, something that compliments this style.

And we’re almost ready to add more products – including our new merchandise – to the store, which we’re rather excited about!

We’re also looking to implement a newsletter to ensure you’re kept up-to-date on all the latest products.

¶ This is a temporary measure for anyone who wants to buy the terrain packs until we can resolve the unforeseen payment processing issues we encountered shortly after the store went live.

Payment Processing Issues

It appears that the online store has encountered some teething problems.

Despite thorough testing beforehand, an unexpected and unforeseen issue when processing payments occurred. This meant that orders could not be confirmed, so none were being fulfilled. Unfortunately, we didn’t catch this until after the first orders started.

We’d like to sincerely apologise for this inconvenience and will resolve to fix this as soon as possible. And where applicable, we have compensated for the inconvenience.

As soon as we know more, we’ll post updates until a resolution has been found.
