Tired of the 'standard' mahjongg tile set? Why don't you create your own? The only limit is your own imagination (and perhaps access to pictures or your artistic limitations...) 

Remember that the Seasons and Flowers tiles are special. When you create a tile set, you must make sure that those eight tiles are identifiable as tiles that belongs to two 'types' or 'families'. The four tiles in each group should have common characteristic marks in order to be identified during the game. Example: You're making a Viking tile set. You have four different pictures of swords and four different pictures of helmets. Voila! Problem solved. And of course you don't use any sword or helmets pictures in the rest of the tile set... . If you don't have an idea for a family of tiles, simply take four identical tiles for each type. They will behave just like regular tiles then.

"I have an great idea for a tile set and would like to use it in *all* solitaire mahjongg games!" Oh, I wish that was possible...but almost every tile-matching game uses a different proprietary file format for sets. You must learn how to make tile sets for your particular game. Read the documentation and/or visit the gameís website first. Is this doesnít help, you must contact the author directly.

One of the few games with it's own 'tile-maker utility' is the Moraff's MahJongg games (shareware). It gets the job done, but it's not 'excellent'. If you compare with the solitaire card games world, producers of solitaire mahjongg has much to learn. The second 'tile set' friendly game is Kyodai MahJongg (shareware), for whom there is several good blank templates and instructions on how to create your own tile sets. Update: Ultimate Mahjong (shareware) has a very good tileset maker.

And now you want to publish your tile set on the net. Where? Well, there isnít any central repository of tile sets, so you have to check out the games websites and/or fan sites first (and / or continue to read below...). If you are lucky, you can submit it to someone who will upload it for you, but you might have to create your own site. 

If you know about sites with tile sets not listed on this page; please contact me!

 

Tile sets to Kyodai MahJongg:

The website of Marc Lesselberg *was the* starting place for everything related to Kyodai MahJongg. It contained custom tilesets, small tilesets, backgrounds, songs, layouts, skins and themes! Unfortunately, it went offline in March 2004.

'The Link List' was an 100% complete list of other Kyodai MahJongg fan sites. A copy of the list is available at 'Chachi's Kyodai Fan Site'.
