Re: help needed (tiles, character)

Right now trying to find out details about this project is a bit of an undertaking in itself, you either have to slog backwards through this subforum or know your way around github. If you're trying to rope in artists, the second option ceases to be viable, so I would recommend making a topic that ...

Re: help needed (tiles, character)

(I know; dimetric, not isometric. Yeah.) anyway, it's good starting point I believe, thanks for looking it up :) Other way to get idea how stuff look like is using for example Wings3D or similar 3D app (Wings is probably easiest to start with and powerful enough to make most stuff for any game. Tho...

Re: help needed (tiles, character)

Though I agree, that now we have separate forum some sticky topic with it can be good, will make one soon (though first I'd like to do small ...

help needed (tiles, character)

As you probably know, on community request we changed to projection from trimetric to dimetric. There is how it now looks: prototype1_iteration2_wip5.love . Unfortunately, as you can see, we have no tiles - or rather what we have for now is solid colour. If you artist and want to help, now is your c...

Re: [Poll] Should we change projection?

The problem with isometric is that (as I explained earlier) cannot be done at all in games. Dimetric is correct term for all projections in games that are symmetric around Y axis. And oblique was not considered again, because it's least realistic one. While (as described in focus) we aim for realist...

Re: [Poll] Should we change projection?

Don't you mean 17 of 20 rather than 7 of 20? well, in post description there was information that valid vote is one with comment. Only 7 people said what they voted for. I think we can think about closing it sooner, but I'd like to know at least some nicks of people who vote for certain option so I...

Re: [Poll] Should we change projection?

I agree, Instead of "Pick one of these 2" it really should have been, "what do you guys think it should be?" Then start a poll on the most common suggestions. There was such poll! Remember it is revote, people gave their opinion once already. On first poll there were 6 options to pick from, i.e. mo...
