    How about this question:

    "If you could choose the theme for our next sound effects pack, what would it be and why?"

    I'm definitely partial to seeing some Greek or Roman tiles.  We haven't had any so far and that is something every style seems to be lacking.  We get Arabian and Egyptian from time to time, but Celtic and Greek seem to get passed up.

    Things like rune stones, mosaics, and other ancient wonders.

    I once worked on a game with a guy from Croatia who themed it after Balkan lore, history, and mythology.

    Pirates theme because there isn't enough game where you travel on the sea and have an adventure it!

    Also boats tilesets are pretty rare.

    If I could choose the theme for the next pack, I'd have to go with Mack-styled sprites (characters, animals, and monsters). Why? It's because it's quite popular, even more so than then XP styled ones.

    At 48x32 pixels, they're the perfect height (not tiny like VX/Ace at 32x32 pixels and not overly large like XP at 64x32 pixels).

    They're quite often requested, quite often supplied as resources, but they're not very consistent in style. These could be made to be either Mack, DS, or RTP styled - it's the height and width that really matters, so long as the style is consistent for the entire pack.

    The theme could be a digital theme. As in like inside of a computer or something. Because I kinda wanted to make a futuristic inside of a computer theme type of game but don't have a resources to do so.

    I'd love to see an "exotic towns" pack that has unique interchangeable pieces so you could build a town in the trees, or a town built into the side of a mountain, a town made of ice, or a grand city under the sea. (Insert Sebastian graphic here) Maybe a town where the buildings are all translucent like a ghost town of a village that once was. I'd like to see something "different". I'd actually love to see the Steam Punk/Wild West style graphics redone in RTP fashion. Not a fan of the Pioneer Valley sprite style.

    Also, I second the Pirate idea too! Because I remember the ship tileset from XP was VERY hard to use, and I don't even know if there is a ship tileset for VX/Ace?

    Well with my Aussie Outback theme and the Prehistoric suggestion... It could be fusioned into Epic Aboriginals!

    Inspired with all pre-bronze cultures all over the world :)

    I mean, even French dwelt once in Lascaux caverns!

    I think a space tileset would be pretty cool, with spaceship interiors, 'planetty' looking tilesets and possibly space station interiors/exteriors. 

    I think it'd be pretty cool for horror games/exploration games and the such.

    I had a question about the parallax mapping for beginners.

    Does it cover how to animate water tiles and especially how to make proper water edges.

    It's pretty much the main issue I have with parralax mapping.

    I'm sure they'll get around to it whenever they have time, just do what I am and wait patiently while forcibly keeping your checking information out of reach just in case you win something.
