I just contributed a little patch to support object groups. I'd really like to help tiled development with adding animated tiles, but first I need to know the plans b_lindeijer and biggeruniverse have on it. I'll try to investigate.

Okay, thanks... I'm not bad at java either, so if you know their plans (which I think don't include any animation looking at the roadmap).. then maybe I could also help out

Experimenting with cliff designs

I'm not going to do anything as complex as the forest cliff (because I'm still having problems with it :evil: )

Instead I'm going to set it up much like the current ones (but create a better transition from cliff to sand and give it a much rounder more organic look)

I"m also going to create a shadow ground tile for the cliffs

I am working on the stonehedge sprite. I have about two complete. I have a question, would you like me to make some so they look like they have fallen. I am pretty sure after a while some would have fallen to natural causes or to monsters *coughBitancough* damaging them.

The desert feels a bit "cold" to me, maybe you should add some (more) warm colours?

:? ..The colors look warm enough to me. I'm not seeing much in the blue spectrum.. and the only significant bits of green are on the palm trees. Some elaboration might help your criticism.

A portion of Tonori should be a hotter, probably more blackened landscape (volcanic plains) but this current style looks like it'll work pretty well for the rest of it.

Well it's just a feeling. Also it depends on the monitor you use. So maybe it's just me :wink:

I made it slightly less saturated than the old tileset to make the players, monsters, and items standout a little more

I think I liked the old colors better, but that might be because I got so used to them.

I don't mind the new colorspace utilized here, but I feel there might be a palette clash with the new sand and the new cliffs. Preserve the colors!

(Which reminds me, we have no guidelines on palette usage.)

Feel free to use this as a base and create your own version ;)

Is there a limit to frames for animated tiles?

Currently there is no support for animated tiles at all. We got to see what the Tiled guys are comming up with but I see no reason to set an arbitary limit on animation lengths.
