      have degica removed the option to use an old version of mv from steam?

        You just need to change your version within steam, and you can select any version you want.

      are there any complete full tileset styles other than the default that comes with mv, every other one seems to be missing something..

        One thing you can try is finding something with a style you like and paying an artist to expand it. Even better, finding a bunch of things that are similar but not quite matching and asking an artist to alter them to match. It'll still be expensive, it's custom skilled work after all, but it's cheaper than starting from scratch.

        Something else that might help; some artists will give you a discount on price if you let the artwork be released as CC-By later.

        Yeah, it's the same with a lot of things. You do it, you get lots better, your stuff done at the beginning looks wrong. But scrapping things because you got better is a great way to put yourself in an endless loop. Plus better doesn't always mean faster, it may actually take longer than 3 years to get back to where you are right now.

        That endless loop...I can tell you from experience that that's real. I've been trying to make games for a decade. There are many projects in my archives that have gone through 2, 3, or even 4 complete overhauls. It took working in software to realize that you are always going to get better but in order to finish in a timely manner you have to accept what isn't broken & apply your new awesomeness to the next thing.

        Ah! Fair enough. I thought you had given up on it for a moment there. Personally, I'd do what you believe is in the best interests of the game itself. If you feel that chopping the game up into smaller, stand alone episodes would harm the narrative, then don't do it.Two years may sound like a long time, but it's really not all that long for game development.

        Thats true, mate, I did a silly thing, changed one detail on a map and forgot to put the right region no. on the tile...
        Just looks really bad when you send someone the game and they get stuck on first map.

        @The Stranger - I took down the download because I'm busy fixing a few issues caused by 1.5 and some plugins. When I have a good playable version again I'll forward you a link if you'd like. I'm about a month and a half away from a fully complete 6-8 hour playable demo (basically the entire first act.) than i'll be putting up a public link.

        Agreed, kids have patience in these sorta things. Especially if it's fun to them. They absorb and learn things much faster than we teens and adults do. Teach her as much as possible while she's still young
