[REQ] Tag and Finish the grass tileset

Post by Bertram » 04 Oct 2010, 16:27

Hi there,

Disclaimer: I usually don't ask for pixel art and feel free to correct me if I do something wrong.

The grass tileset to be used in CR1 is this one:
http://gitorious.org/+tmw-admins/tmw/cl ... ground.png

Currently, there is no author panel linked to it, (I would first have to know his/her author. Len?)
and I'm not sure whether there are sufficiently different tiles in it.

I'm then opening this [REQ] in order to get feedback upon those points.

Thanks for your answers and improvements.

My best regards.

I'm not sure who made this set. I do know that it needs some work.
It really needs some kind of roadway and dirt (tilled or untiled for different uses.)
I might try working on this myself considering it's the only thing preventing me from making at least a place holder map for the new academy.

Regardless I should have a map done soon.

I think that the color of the low grass is awful (looks like slime IMO), but I know that everyone disagrees with my taste of color when it comes to grass.

Hi,

I'd actually have nothing a few possible grass recolorations, just for our eyes ;)

But curiously noone knows where the tileset comes from?

Best regards.

That set is still terribly mirrored. Look at the corner tiles - in each square, each corner is the same. Somewhere about the place I have a corner redraw I started on... non-mirrored. In fact I think I posted it under the development thread for this piece.

Ah yes, here: http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopi ... &start=127

As you can see, I didn't finish it, but (and I say this though I dislike commenting on my own art) I think the corner tiles I've redrawn look far nicer than having them mirrored.

What's more, those corners took me just a few minutes each. So quick that I may finish them at some point... but I wouldn't wait around, as I notoriously never get around to anything.

One thing - a few people have mentioned that the colour is a bit weird. I also noticed that the colour in the redo I started is changed from the original, but it's still not very nice-looking.

It's yellowish because it was originally beach grass, but now I see it's "nature-ground". Are you sure that's the right colour for it?

I wont disagree with this.
Each grass set is incomplete. we are missing peaces that cannot possibly be used correctly without layering over existing peaces or simply ignoring the fact that they are missing. In some instances 2 different corners must be in a 32x32 with each-other if we want a really close gap in the grass. Same concept with edges. I might add these 6 or so very small missing tiles.

here an example set with the edges present. This is a standard, also to be noted Man Made, road.

Edit: added a visual example.

I tried recolouring it:

Tested most of the colours in here, the highest saturation seems to be 60. What do you think?

Hard to tell. Can you post a mockup?
