LV-517 Map in progress

Post by Whaley » 09 Nov 2017, 06:37

Got bored, and decided to re-familiarize myself with byonds dream maker. Started working on a little map. It features a hydroelectric platform/dam (I saw a post recently with a map someone made, and I really liked the hydro plant.) a plethora of caves, an urban-ish area, and traditional less jungle-y forests. Still a work in progress Pretty much done, but I'd like to hear any critiques/angry rants you have.

Notes - I thought the dam could use some water tiles that are dangerous/impassable. Just seems like a high chance for !!FUN!!

Looks cool, I really like the zoomed out version that you posted. It's pixelated, but it kinda looks like a low res recon photo which is neat.

Looks good to me too, the buildings are kinda boxy though.

I liked the layout of the map, but the sprites could be better.

I think it looks nice, but yeah, the buildings are somewhat boxy. The caves look awesome though.

Updated the original post, made the buildings a bit less boxy. Added more detailed corner sprites on paths and stone/mountain walls.

Ported it to baystation codebase (Woops, didn't know about that.) But, everything went pretty smoothly. Other than that, its basically done. Maybe a few cosmetic tweaks.

Well, I'm certainly not a great spriter, especially terrain, but here's the end result. (The tile effect on the walls should be lessened by the inability to see through them.) But, this map is done as of now.

Looks interesting, maybe just needs to fill more space in a few empty areas and the tiles to be abit less vibrant(I dunno, just something I struggle with alot anyways).

One program that really helps me out with spriting is 'pyxeledit', in regards to animating and visualizing continuity between tiles or really any other 2d stuff.
