That is a really nice try but as you can see, we are talking of a single cherry, not 2 cherries.

What is the difference? Blueberry got 4 berry inside the icon.

This is a very, very nice try. You now need to make it less blurry, which means making a precise outline for example. The shading isn't so bad imo.

Actually i don't understand why the icon have a single cherry when in reality is really weird to find a single cherry, look at my own cherry tree for example.

@Carlitos: i love the first attempt you did, but i think you are missing a pixel on the right side of right cherry and it makes it look weird. I wish i can pixel art too but my art is not pixels hehe. Keep Drawing!

Regards

Good work bringing the snail monster into the game, but the slime trail particle effect looks strange because it is in front of the sprite:

I am using the latest development snapshot of the Mana client. Does it look the same way with the current release?


Edit: No wonder, you've placed it 10 pixels above the ground:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!-- A thin trail of slime. -->
<effect>
	<particle position-x="0" position-y="0"	position-z="10"	>
		<emitter>

OK, it's a software problem. The particle is also drawn in front of the sprites when I set the z position to 0. There have been some changes at the particle code lately. Seems like they broke something.

But I also noticed that the effect consumes a whooping 600 particles. That's really a lot considering that there is a cap of 3000 particles at the same time. This means that when you have more than 5 snails on the same screen (or other particle emitters) all particle effects will start to look irregular.

You should be able to do the same with less particles by using a larger particle image. You can check the particle count using the F10 debug window.

Hi Crush,
OK, it's a software problem. The particle is also drawn in front of the sprites when I set the z position to 0. There have been some changes at the particle code lately. Seems like they broke something.
Did it ever worked (to have particle behind/drawn before the beings)?
This has been reported in the issue: http://bugs.manasource.org/view.php?id=362 where you already posted a patch.

Does it fix the problem? Were you able to have an agreement with Jaxad on how to do stuff for that?

Best regards,

The patches fix the problems the way Jaxad suggests, but introduce another problem (incorrect transparency of equipment). But this problem can also be solved.

By following the helpful advice of Ali-G, I've revised the plum.

What Len said, although you will have to adjust that slightly as a plum is not perfectly spherical.

Note also that it is a yellow plum, but that could always be changed (and possibly should be).
