[RC] > [SVN] Armor-Head: Jester Mask (Skull Mask)

Post by i » Thu Aug 28, 2008 4:36 pm

This is first of RC (Release Candidate) topics. I hope this kind of procedure will help us to improve quality of game content. Rules are simple. When author thinks that content is good and polished enough to put it in game, should start that kind of topic. Everyone have right to put here constructive criticism. No one sentence spam like "Wow!", "cool", "g8r" is allowed. If you want to show your enthusiasm you have to type down what you like in RC project, what would you possibly change, etc. After 3 days we will put content in games SVN (subversion system). This is the time to discuss any improvements or even block content if it doesn't pass our quality control or games guidelines.

Project type: Head equipment
Project name: Jester Mask a.k.a. Skull Mask

I do not like icon that much. The icon is just taken from the spriteset, IMO the icon should be a different graphic. In the Guidelines proposal I made (Please note it is still a proposal) I propose to use the 3/4 view for head equipment. Other than the icon (which is just a small issue) I really like the headgear.

Somewhat offtopic:
I think 3 days is very short.
And "31 Aug 2008, 16:34", what timezone?

I think three days are long enough considering that most of the development of the graphic is done in its main thread and the RC threads are just to catch any last minute concerns.

I'd assume GMT, but this isn't the place to talk about it. The icon should be redone to match the others.

It does match the other icons. There are almost no headgear icons which are not taken from the spriteset. And I for myself don't consider anything wrong with that.

Quite a lot of them aren't, but that should be discussed elsewhere.

Most of those which are not are still from the era where we had no equipment spritesets. Just using a frame from the spriteset was general practice for the last years. And this should be discussed here when it is used as an argument to block the release of this graphic.

Even when I said I like to see the icon changed, I do not think that should prevent this item to be added to the SVN. The guideline I mentioned is still a proposal. And as Crush pointed out, right now it does match the other icons. So in short I do think it should be added to the SVN.

I must agree with you guys, Spit23 made a great job. I also like to see that item ASAP on SVN. I wish to change only the way like all items are present on ground. I'd like to see item groups, not specific item icons on floor. Item groups icons may be smaller - let's say 20x20px and in correct perspective. Player will be able to figure out what item was picked up after putting it in inventory. I really don't like huge as almost half of the character icons, no matter if item was small or big.

Returning to the main topic, in present state I will vote YES for adding this content.

Thanks for praising my work. I'm honoured :D . I'm still not quite sure about the name of the item. I think it should be named "Skull Mask", "Harlequin Mask" or "Jester Mask". I think I prefer "Jester Mask".

I agree this item is worth our great svn repository. Although I prefer not to call it skull mask.

Spit23 as author has privilege to name it. IMO Jester Mask sounds good.
