    @karraymalek When you have a lot or big maps, please put your maps inside of a spoiler, that's a lot of images to try and load all at once. They're very pretty and well done, but I do wonder if the mottled look would get tiring on the eyes after a while.

    I've been working on a church/chapel map, using an amazing prebuilt tileset from Haydeos. I couldn't really think of any decent ways to use the bottom half of the map, and I was struggling to fit any more custom tilesets for this map in, so I decided to cut it out and I think it looks a lot better.

    @Ksi You were right, adding some more houses really improved the overall look of the map. I messed around with the paths as well, but I'm not sure if it looks better or not. Thoughts are appreciated. :)

    Yesterday was the 6th anniversary of our steampunk novel, Nimbus. So my partner and I released the first screenshot (still mega-early) of the follow-up RPG that we're working on. Here's an airship dock on the skyport Winglet.

    Decided to work on the inside of my new chapel. The first version felt really off, but I transformed it to better match the outside structure.

    @karraymalek People are asked to use spoilers when there are a lot of images, especially if they are large. I have put your images into a spoiler for you this time, but please keep this in mind for future posts.
    Thanks.

    @SOC Oh, I like that layout! The walltop tile looks a little out of place though... Do you have room in the tileset for that map to add anything? A matching stone half-pipe or a bevel would frame the room better, although to have it match the lighting you'd need to have a mirror image pair of tilesets.

    I'm working on battlebacks and can't decide what pattern to put on the wall in this indoor scene:

    The other tile type in the overworld is:
    fancy 2.png (...But uh, square?)

    ...so I'm trying to decide between using the floor tile, using the presented alt tile, or some third geometric pattern and just wing it.

    @Benevolentwanderer When transforming your floor to make a vanishing point, you need to take care how you have done the original tile. At the moment, not only do you have the tiles reducing to the vanishing point (fine, that's what they're supposed to do), the way the horizontal lines go, I get the visual impression that they form a shallow valley. Maybe it's the way you have made the side tiles longer than they are wide? Dunno, I'm not an artist. All I know is that the floor looks convex.

    @Benevolentwanderer to add on what @Kes says : it indeed looks like you're walking in a convex.
    If you look at the far point (red circle) you can see the pattern forming a near perfect circle and the floor angles in the start (green lines) are angled up rather strong. So the middle 3 lines are the 'flat' surface and the rest is more of a shallow, or that's the impression it leaves anyway.
    Of course this can be intentional in which case never mind :)

    @Kes @Finnuval Oh yeah, haha, that was totally intentional. It's supposed to be a trippy location in a game that's already a little trippy to start with; geometric insanity is just par for the course. It's based on the effect you get with a fisheye lens, modified to be even a little bit more unnatural looking.

    (Besides, who cares about realism when you're coming up with funky geometric patterns? Not me, apparently :LZYwink: )

    @Benevolentwanderer well in that case mission succesful lol
    But if you want to truly give it that trippy feel you might want to consider bending the pillars too :)

    Looks very nice, the tileset and the map itself. Made me want to see more of these.

    On to the residential area! I think the different style roofs may make me need to replace those houses with the standard MV ones, but they're just too pretty not to use.

    @SOC honestly I think the different housing styles clash to much but that's personal preference so... yeah.

    The path though does have a flaw : You have the wall all the way up to the pavement on all places except the exit to the left where the lower wall is actually one tile removed from the path where it should cut into the path to be the same as the wall above it.

    What's better than having an animated title screen?
    Having two!

    @Paladin-Cleric of Awesome Looks like you've got a good start there. You've got a few places where shadows are missing/inconsistent, mainly around the castle and the buildings that have shadows going into the walls, so if you're not using a script to do them, I would fix those. Additionally, what I think you're really missing is greater detail. Things like broken bricks, cracked roads and especially plants and nature things around the more natural parts of the city. Also, it may just be me but I feel like the wooden fences inside the city walls are a bit off, I'd replace them with one of the other ones. Overall I really like the layout you've got going on, you just gotta fill in all the empty space with detail so the map really pops. :)

    Completely unrelated, this is part of the hills that surrounds a town I've been working on. I'm pretty happy with how it looks but I'm a bit concerned that there's too much going on at any given time. Thoughts?

    @shadefoundry That looks good, although a couple of things stand out. Firstly, all your ground is 0, 4, 7 or 11 tiles above the lowest level -- nothing in between. That would be an "acceptable break from reality" if each tier of the hill was a place you needed to walk, but when it's just for looking at, I'd expect many more ledges and steps at intermediate levels. Secondly, there are too many trees for such steep terrain, and especially the tree stump and fallen log tiles are overused. Why would your lumberjack climb a four-metre rockface to cut down wood when there are perfectly good trees on the lowest level?
