degen avoid the middle shade (the lighter blue one at the left of the purple one) and use a darker tone of green for the left part.
And do not name your tiles as failures :roll: :wink:

One thing I think might help (along with my usual standing request for a number of variants) is if the boards being walked on were somewhat more flat and wide. Right now, they look a little too round to be easily walked across to me.

The bridge feels kinda thin: I wouldn't walk on a wooden bridge which isn't supported from below and is thinner than my foot. (Either make it hanging or build support structures either above or below. And don't use those straight pillars, they're boring.)

Crush the straight pillars might work, but in that example they feel a bit unrealistic, like they could break easily. Ok i understanf that is a work in progress os maybe my rant is pointless :wink:
I would let that idea for lower bridges, like those ones to get cross small streams.
Also i would like to see a structure similar to this:

In short bridges (like the one in the example) the central pillar may be not neccessary.
I propose you to do a set of bridge tiles, that compose of a variety of surface you walk on, and differents structures to hold it. Al the tiles should be interchangeable, maybe with only a limit: mix wooden tiles with rock might not work well...

Anyway, keep up the good work :wink:

Oh yeah how we could forget about the need of a bridge? Nice idea Crush. But I have to agree with the others about the instability of it.
My idea it's easy and won't require much time. Just use your pillars to create an horizontal structure below the bridge. This structure will substain the fragile bridge, and will be probably plugged into the rock.
I hope this will help.

Crush, the bridge looks alright but I agree with the others that the boards need to be more flat and wide.

Oh and here is what I meant by the trees:
Image
I made it myself. :wink: I think it fits in better with the other tiles.
I think it needs more work but thats low priority for now...
I love you too. :)

I really like it, the shape and leaves, maybe the trunk could be improved a bit, but as you said it is not a priority.

lol, the shape is the same as mine which got criticised more then once.

the leafs look very good. but the shading seems a little bit flat. make it appear more bumpy and we can talk about replacing one of my trees.

hmm crush i cant say much about the critism against your shape but the elaves in my opinion is very different. On this tree you have every leaf outlined adn can really see them sepeartly while on teh tree oyu made there was one color with shade and high lgiht and later on you started to add random pixels to give it a more leaf feeling (which in my opinion was a good one as well)

But i think thats the difference anyway :P

And as elven said abit more work and it could turn out great :)
(hah that comes from he :P shessh where did i find air to say that)
