I like the shape on the top left, but I don't know how well it will stand up to pixellating.

They could all be used for future tilesets, but I think the upper left goes the best with this tileset as thorns.

Thank you Saphy for all your hard work and everyone who contributed in any way. Edit: I never posted my completed stumps (I might need to remake them ><)

Try to make it work (it should be possible to make a map with it)... and give me some feedback (I've pretty much decided that I'm through with it.) all that is needed to be done now is testing and editing and that sounds like a job for mappers (hopefully they don't go crazy trying to understand it all) :lol:

I"m going to start working on my desert revision project http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopi ... a&start=30

or maybe make AxlTrozz,s dream a reality

Hi,

very true (it is on the CMTF content list, though). A rumour had been passed to me that the tiles weren't of the proper size (or had some other kinds of issues); I measured and they seem to be 32x32, so I don't know what the issue is. Is there any reason for why they can't be used, and if so, what would have to be done to fix that?

I think we were just waiting for the post he did earlier to be made.

The tileset still has a few problems, but nothing that should keep someone from making maps with it. I've made a ton of test maps with it after all



Heres the stump!

The only problem with mapping is we need a final layout, which I think still needs to be discussed.

After making a little fishing spot in tiled I realized:

[*]That people are going to walk under Saphy’s grass not through it.
[*]The shadow on my trunk is too strong (done) Image
[*]I need to resize the rocks and change their shadows (done) Image


But I've found nothing that could keep someone from making a map

How about drawing the whole tree but making it more transparent?

You can find me lurking in the Graphics Development forum...
Haha, you thought it was a link, didn't you! :–)

Depends on how high we think the camera is. I think the current cutoff transparency distance for that seems rather appropriate, but there has been no public discussion about it. If you're interested in that issue, just separate it into a different [DIS] topic.

OK I'm going to use another tree Saphy made to reinforce the vanishing line.. also what you you think of putting the light beams coming through the trees on a parallax layer?

Hi,

the graphics are magnificent. :-) As far as the light is concerned: I like the general idea and believe that it can work, but in your example the feature is over-used.

Yes I was thinking that they would only be used around clumps of trees and more slightly slower than the map when the player walks.

Area based overlays aren't supported yet. For now, overlays apply to the whole map in all cases.
