[REQ] More tiles for Tulimshar set

Post by Jaxad0127 » 27 Nov 2008, 01:55

I'm requesting some tiles for Tulimshar that aren't in the current set. Without them, I'll need to redesign this building heavily.

A redesign of the set to take advantage of the unlimited layers we now have would also work.

The bottom right corner is already there 8th column, 6th row. You're right about the other one, and the unlimited layers.

I didn't even see those tiles for some reason. Thank you. I'm making good use of this set's complexity.

Note that the last one isn't a hish priority, as it has been in the game for a while without complaints.

Looking at the transition between the tile to the left of the left gap and the one above that in your first screenshot I see this:

Replacing that tile with the tile in the 13th column 4th row changes it to this:

After a few attempts at making a tile to fill the lower left gap in the first screenshot, I've come up with this:
tilelowerleftsc1.png
32x32 tile (unless I messed up gimp's grid system again)
tilelowerleftsc1.png (707 Bytes) Viewed 941 times
tilelowerleftsc1wenvr.png
Tile with surrounding tiles from screenshot
tilelowerleftsc1wenvr.png (1.6 KiB) Viewed 941 times
It still doesn't look right to me but I'm at a loss as how to improve it.

Does anyone have any suggestions? :?:

Could we also have doors for the doorframes or are the people living there really trusty?

Good point - I had sort of thought they were trusting people without really thinking about it; but I guess they have guards and big gates and walls.

And crime is everywhere I guess. :roll:

This could also be useful in other ways too - eg. a closed door = no warp

I'll start on this now (both upper and lower doorways)

The "closed door - no warp" aspect was what I'm after. At the moment it's rather frustrating that you don't really know which doors lead somewhere without trying.

That said, should this apply to other tilesets too? Could we animate doors opening when people pass through?

Use the same type of npc that a chest is. We could use npc scripting to get warps and requirements (keys or stats). The only flaw I can see is that the player doesn't have to be closed to the door for it to warp him or her.

Well, we could do it like a MUD there, make it to where you click the door and a question pops up in a dialog box asking "Do you want to open this door?" "Yes, No" via an invisible NPC.

A better solution would be an area-triggered dialogue with a conditional warp like we have at the hurnscald mine entrance.

The dialog should only appear in situations were it makes sense (a guarded door requiring a password, for example), not for every single door in the game. When the player stands in front of a door and presses the "up" key, his/her intentions are quite clear and don't require further confirmation.

Why not just edit the map (replacing the closed door with an open one) when adding the warp?
