Yeah I was referring to all the nature tiles actually. I should have been specific, sorry. But yeah, all the nature tiles look just like the ones that everyone else uses. Hopefully you guys decide to make new ones to go along with the new buildings. (The buildings look wonderful by the way lol)

The nature tiles are made from scratch bar the trees iirc. But the HGSS style is quite nice. However I think we'll be keeping the style, but changing the colours if I can find a nice alternative.

    Who has what roles on the project? I don't think it's stated in the first post.
    Like who does maps? Tiles? Who is leading the project? And so on.

      We're not quite sure, really. At the moment, I've done pretty much everything, with some tips from Abnegation here and there. xD He joined the project after I released the thread, but I'm sure he's gonna be a great co-leader!

      Currently I have a list of mapping and scripting to do, which is probably what I'll be doing most, but we'll probably just share everything, we're both pretty confident in all aspects of developing the game. However our specialties differ.

        Wow, screens look really nice; the tint in the first set of screens looks very effective.

        not really fond of the male character, but thats just personal taste.

          Both characters will be replaced, since they're both placeholders for the real awesomeness.

          Just a little question, guys, Abnegation's been working on some new color to make the tiles appear less generic, what do you think?

            I like the colors, they help the tiles stand out. I don't know if that's an in game map or not, but if it is you may want to check the tile errors with the mountain tiles.

            Those colors definitely help! It will really make the game stand out nature wise!

            Just revising this, and here's a sneak peek at the female hero. I did think from the beginning we needed to change colours, so I did that, how's this looking guys?

              The tiles certainly stand out with that color scheme, and the overall mood its creating is uplifting, so I think it works.

              My only grip are the tiles you are using for tall grass, but it's mostly a personal preference. I liked the tall grass tiles looking the way they did with games like HGSS, because they actually looked like clumps of grass and not individual shrubs placed in a weird position on a map. It still looks nice, though, keep it up.

                The pallets looks much better right now and tiles stand out more but I'm still not sure if I do like a tree or not. But anyway female hero looks great. Hope to see more soon.

                  The new colour-scheme is much better. I'm still unsure about the tree tile.. If you're going to use that tree, then make sure the trees don't overlap (they only overlap in HGSS because they are 3Dmodels); in 2D tiles they shouldn't really overlap.

                  Also, the revised heroine is good.

                    Well, I have to query this. A lot of the tiles in this game are actually 3D models, but we use them in much the same way as HGSS does; by not seeing all the perspectives. So I don't understand why we should make the trees not overlap like this since the perspective is much the same as it is in HGSS. I'm not arguing your point here, just not sure of your logic is all.

                      overlapping trees have always bugged me. makes no sense to have them, but nearly all of the fangames done in 4gen style have them :/

                      EDIT: i know thats how it's done in gen4, still bugged be because it's more noticible with the lack of "3D".

                      Probably because that's how they were mapped in the 4th gen. Have a look at New Bark Town. And as I stated before, our trees are in the same perspective.

                        Yoel might be using his 3D modelling software to make the tiles, but, in the end, they are TILES. They aren't inserted into the game as models. They could overlap if the perspective changed as you walk round them; but it doesn't and hence the tiles shouldn't overlap.

                          We're going for a style similar to the official tiles, but orthographically viewed. So yeah, they are not 3D models, however they should look like they are.

                          The perspective of the trees in HGSS & this game are the same, therefore we align them the same.

                            That debate about the trees overlapping came out as soon as fan games used that 4th gen style starting with D/P.
                            I think it looks great guys.
                            I was worried the tiles reminded me of Gavin's other game (I was thinking of this image: http://fav.me/d4cegtw - nice little DA plug there lol). Clearly they are not the same colors but when I first saw the comparison shot posted earlier, I got that vibe. That worry isn't really there anymore ha.

                            I have an idea! What if instead of having them overlapping all on the same side, you could change it up every once in a while? Have it overlap on one tree on the right, or one tree on the left, and then have trees where the leaves like... mesh together. Not overlap, just are intertwined? I think it would really make the trees look nice :)

                              The new heroine looks so beautiful.
                              I really really like her!
                              You've done a good job with her!

                                That wouldn't be an option, since we are really going for something as close to the official games as possible. Thanks for the comment, though.

                                What..Why? Dew, you can do so much better than the official games, why would you want to make a game at there level, when you can exceed it so easily...
