Actually it isn't. But I managed to finish it ASAP and release full tileset. It should be done a year ago...

I think i meant to say "I will finish it ASAP"?

There are still minor problems with that tile, especially the glowing floating tree on that rock.

Yeah, I know about it. The cave have to be redrawn, also the river needs some attention. Also I managed to remove train trails from this tileset. In free space instead of it a new stone bridge should be done. I have to put a bit of life in those tiles :)

LOL, from my understanding player/monster sprites should stand out from the background......

yes ofc, but if all the aroundings is to gray and dark then it looks odd.

Sorry if I came off as a little mean sometimes I’m a little to close to see the problems in my work….

btw which side looks nicer?

just one word: beautiful!


I'm no specialist but I would say that screenshot 1 is better because the colours are a bit "colourful" (i don't know how to say it in "graphical-english" but the green is "greener" the rock looks stronger and altogether the screenshot has a bit more deep than screen 2)

It’s an optical illusion, just as warm colors get pulled forward and cool ones get pushed back, sharp objects get pulled forward and blurry ones get pushed back. So just adding a slight outline to some of the objects makes them appear sharper and helps pull them forward.

and its not a screenshot i'm just seeing how things look

The outline around the trees on pic 2 doesn't work. Also note that 1) outlines should only be used for sprites and not for map tiles and 2) when you use outlines you shouldn't make the corners blocky. Here an example what I mean:

  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

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.

Please note that it was just for me to find out what works and what people seem to like, that is why the outlines lack refinement.

And people seem to like outlines on the map objects, so it odd that you would reject the idea outright...

I must have misunderstood what you’re talking about????? So you must be talking about the dirt tile if so I’ll fix it up later…
