Actually nobody, Facalta was working on it and I made some of mushrooms also Len created another couple concepts but nothing usable yet.

Any volunteer ?

Hi,

here's a tileset proposal for the mushrooms, including some that I tried to build by `shrinking' Len's mushroom a bit. Note that the tiny little mushrooms should be stackable, though this may require several layers. I don't know enough about mapping to know whether this will work (the relevant program doesn't like my window manager), so I'd greatly appreciate feedback on that!

I'm not sure if the first one fits, though... also, I might have missed some (or included some that shouldn't be included). Any feedback would be appreciated!

[EDIT: removed some dirt from the negatives and made a fresh print]

Hi,

to be clear about this: I didn't draw (most of) these mushrooms; they are pulled from earlier in this thread. The authors are (top down, left-to-right):
  • Dave, Dave again (though I took the liberty of filling in the stem, using Dave's colour design)
  • Dave
  • Len, and the rest by myself with colour and shape adapted
I am particularly curious whether this tileset could actually be used for mapping, or whether changes would be needed/helpful.

Hi everyone,

Ces has kindly provided me with two screenshots of his mapping experiments:

The above uses a single layer for mushrooms. Using multiple layers gives the following effect:

(Note how he exploited identically-looking but shifted mushrooms to construct different combinations within a tile)

The two biggest ones evidently need some cleanup on their outlines; I will get on that right away.

Hi,

I've cleaned up some outlines (as pointed out by Ces) and added a new Len-style mushroom.

Any thoughts? Anything blocking this from inclusion as a standard tileset?

Thank you for working on this, fate. The caves really needs some pixel love.

I noticed that Dave’s entwined/twisted fungus could need a variant or two, but that is something which could be added later. (Dave’s largest fungus could also need a variant, but it is quite unique in itself, especially if used sparingly.)

It is a bit more work with using additional layers, but it is well worth the effort in my eyes, as it effectively can help break the squares, especially if done with more attention than I used in the quick test above (I wasn’t very careful, so it looks quite messy and there is also several layer mistakes).

Now we only need a cave where they'd fit.

Hi,

on second glance, the big spore-mushroom's top is now broken and the outline for the twisted mushroom needs more polishing. I'll try to get to that next weekend. Other than that, are there any complains, or any reasons for why this shouldn't be included as a standard tileset?
