I have a question for the frequent uploaders to this Isometric subforum. Did you all create the art at a specific angle or isometric projection ratio? It's my understanding that most ISO art is made at a 2:1 ratio
(the cell width is twice the height). Did you use a specific angle to generate your iso art, or did you just "eyeball" it?

The reason I'm asking is because I'm modifying my MapForge software to be able to create isometric maps (the world could use an affordable ISO app!), and I want to make sure that ALL the artwork posted in
this ISO subforum is usable in it.

To that end, I'm making the iso projection ratio adjustable, as shown in this short video (you might need to watch it multiple times to see what's going on).

Will that do the trick, do you think?

My current Kickstarter campaign to add isometric mapping capability to MapForge finally funded today,
and has already unlocked the first Stretch Goal.

If anyone wants to chip in, I believe the next two Stretch Goals are totally achievable.
The campaign ends in about 41 hours.

Thanks, Bogie. :)
Only one Stretch Goal remains, but the campaign ends in less than
24 hours. Fingers crossed.

All 3 Stretch Goals have been unlocked. The campaign ends in less
than 3 hours, and pledging even $1 gets you FOUR free isometric
mapping Add-Ons, which you can use even without a MapForge
license.
