If it gets done in less than 2 years of at least semi-active development, you're right on schedule. At this rate you're already far ahead of schedule.

No pressure.

I have been busy this week and probably the next week, so I probably wouldn't be able to contribute much. I will fix the shadow of the tree when I got time.

After that, I am planning to create a new bamboo tree, which can be used to make bamboo forest and village.

I've also been somewhat busy, but I did manage to work a little more on the cliffs.

You shouldn't just mirror the left and the right side. It looks very unnatural.

I was planning on fixing that with the light direction, think of it as a template for now :wink:

First workable version of the ground tileset (still missing a few directions of cliff tiles and everything is in need of some polishing)
I’ve copied and pasted a little vegetation onto the map to see what it looks like (I'm also messing around with grass and plant concepts)

Most of Saphy's plants I'm going to use as water plants

I'm attempting to make some plants and grass which won't stand out as much and can be used throughout the map

Trickster Online is a really beautiful game that proves that pure 2d engines for commercial games are still not dead. I would recommend every artist to take a look at this game (it's for free, by the way).

But this grass texture is not really my taste.

I am still unable to fix up my sprites because of school works. Sorry about that.

I've been taking a small reprieve from development on this tileset (I'll come back to it soon enough)

I think that based upon the current quality, we're all willing to wait a bit longer for more progress. :)

Okay. I have minimized the outline of the trunk and blurred the shadow:

Regarding the rock tile, I believe it would look more natural if the rocks tiles at the same direction. I have roughly modified the tile at the left for demonstration:

I know it's already been established, but that tree is great. I'd agree with your assessment of the rock direction-issue..

Sadly for me, you are correct (and I had just about gotten everything tileable) :cry:

(I'm aware this can be simplified)

However, I think the tree might look nicer if the shadow wasn't actually on the tree itself (even if its unrealistic)
