Feel free to toss the carpet completely out of the set. It is just a recolored red carpet from the regular caves, from the look of it. Same with the braziers. If you are going to use them, start with the source version and alter it to make it look better. I suppose we can use similiar ice and snow formations, though a bonus for something that isn't such a contrast to the cave floors and walls would be great.
Current character is "Abolish".

I like the new building set. Nice job.
It could use a new roof instead of the plain one from the Nivalis set. I'm thinking stone tile like the color of the walls kinda. I'll mess around and see what I can come up with.

Could someone make a Thermin Barber. Salmondine, Merlin or ChefChelios, since you are doing great, please post something. We really need another barber and I discussed about that with people, it will be great to have another one that will not be located in the main city (which is curently Hurnscald of course).

Looking forwards on this,

That is great! However, are you sure it will fit Thermin?

Regards.

8-way walls for the caves will help mapping significantly.

for the moment there is not any mapper who work for this project ( :( ) (as I know).
  • and mapping without mapper still not exist
Maybe, 8 way walls tiles (if I do them, or someone else) will be not used for all maps

Trust me: mapping is the only development task you can always find volunteers for in the community when you are actively searching for them. The majority of maps you see ingame were not mapped by regular developers but by casual contributors from the community.

You can also make the first map yourself. When I were an active tile artist I always did that. This was not an intentional effort but rather a by-product of my workflow. To check if a tileset is complete and everything works together the way I want, I was always trying to map with the tileset myself. So I was constantly building small and large test maps while pixeling the tiles. The final test for my tilesets was to build a productive map with them. So I was able to released each of my tilesets together with a usable map.

  • former TMW Pixel artist

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

True, but the fact that (and I will say this a lot until everyone agrees with me) you can use Tiled and know the layer structures and mapping guidelines doesn't necessarily mean you can make good maps.

While your working with the tiles that you made you usually come up with other ideas or figure out what tiles your missing. Your tileset could look fine and complete but until you map with it you don't know if you can build everything that is possible. I'm o.c.d. about having to be able to have every type of possible construction options. I like setting up a mock-up map with the set while I'm working on it. It doesn't have to be for the finished product but it would help you in the design.
Don't worry about the production. Just keep working on your stuff. I'm working on my set right now, but I think I'm going to use some of the same metal textures and have some fringe stuff I'm working on that might cross fit this set as well. idk if the pure whitish snow fits for this set. I'd imagine a type of tundra ground set instead of the pure snow ice. That's something I might try and edit up. :)

That wall surface would look nice in a building set like this.
(reference art:The new FFiV Complete. Some really nice 32x32 tiles in this game.)
