[RC] Cave south exits

Post by octalot » 20 Dec 2008, 00:19

Cutting an end to the voting, let's ship version K (by Freeyorp). I think it's got the best of both options E and J.

Separated from http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopi ... 90&start=0 , where you can find discussion for each of these.
.xcf files are attached in that topic, for people who want to create a new version.

I write this because I am currently lost in some cave north of Hurnscald :P
I think it's time to choose one and use it.

That's option G :)
I like it, but it's problematic for entrances that are 2 tiles wide:

E is the best, it blends in with with the environment.

Looking closer at the images with shadows, it seems the shadows become uneven when used for 2 tile wide exits or more - I've created 3 _x2 in-between-er-ish tiles for g) which should (hopefully) fix that :)

Fixed the wide tiles so that the top also flows smoother :)

I like the top of H a lot, but prefer the shadow of E.

what is B supposed to be? :mrgreen:
I stand beside the holy man
The monarchs fear my wrath
None may move the way I can
Ever the crooked path

B was me not fully understanding Crush. . :roll:

Apart from And B, I think most of the options look very good, but I voted E because of the nice shadow on the ground.
