    @Soliah: thanks for pointing out the little mistakes :D , the statues are there randomly because there part of an overall simple puzzle where in order to gain access to the ruins you need to place power Runes in the statues located at it entrance to allow the door to open.

    I explain in the story that the ruins were once a sacred temple and in order to protect a rare flower that grows in its grounds during a period of war, the forest was warped and its location moves around the world dependant on the time of day. So in order to find it you need to learn its locations and times or be very lucky and stumble in to it.

    Hope that explains why the statues are in random places :D

    been a while, trust me i have been working but here is a screen.

    the map is not finished yet, i will be painting some blood splatter & need some dead mac sprites made for me still.  

    When i get it in game it will have lighting effects etc, but still a ways off from that.

    The background and the actor panel is really nice, but those sparkles really get in the way, I'd just remove them.  The command descriptions also don't look like they need to be on a separate line, i'd just draw the command name left-aligned and the description right-aligned unless you have some really long description for the other commands. The font also would look better if it was a more regular, easier to read font. The fancy fonts are good for logos and title screens, but I don't think they really work for UI stuff.

    Menus and combat stuff I've been working on. Looks a bit better in motion, I might put together a short video of it soon:

    @ Kaelan, The sparkly bits are moving when you play there not static . Il try using a few different fonts but I am going for the hand written look as if it was a scroll, and its really hard to find the right font that does that and still looks good and not childish aha :D

    @Deenos That's an interesting world map. Though it looks weird to have snow on one landmass but not the others at the same elevation.

    @Stridah That is a nice map. I can't wait to see it with the lighting. The perspective on the long vertical cross beams look off, almost like their going into the dirt rather than the opposite wall. It could be me though.

    But the wall is dirt, isn't it? It's a mine. It looks fine to me at any rate.

    @ stridah

    I agree that there is something about the vertical beams (the horizontal ones are absolutely fine).  Somehow it doesn't look like they are going across to the lower wall, it looks like they are going down into the ground.  I think that the lower end needs to come up a couple of pixels so that you can just see it at the top edge of the wall.

    EDIT

    I've just had a look at one of my own maps where I have something very similar, and I see that I have set the top end of the beam a bit lower down the wall, level with the cross piece.  This makes the angle less acute, and I think that will help the perspective problem.  Also, I think that structurally the beam needs to be at the cross piece rather than perching on the top of the uprights, as that is where there is greater strength and the weight gets spread across the supports.

    @Kaelan:

    Arent' those portrait pictures from Baldur's Gate?

    @RaZi:

    I like the world map, looks like there will be a lot to explore. But I'm not so sure about all those islands in the northwest. They don't look very naturally. I would maybe integrate some of them into the continents or combine two islands to form a bigger island. Right now they have almost same exact sizes.

    And here is a little map shot from me. Really doesn't belong to any project, just exercising a bit, trying out lighting techniques, a new xp sprite variation, some small edits and combining different tilesets to, hopefully, one cohesive look.

    @Candacis

    very nice indeed.  The only thing that left me wondering for a moment is the sprite behind/to the left of the mage in purple.  For a short while I could only see the head and though it was a detached something, possibly peering up over the cliff.  Then I saw the body.  Maybe it's a result of the animation, or a transient thing with the lighting, but I did wonder if the body needs just a touch more definition?  Or maybe it's meant to be slightly transparent?

    btw, where did you get those trees?  I think they are particularly nice (and I always feel I can never have enough trees).

    Thanks, yeah, it is meant to be just slightly visible. Maybe it should have a bit more opacity.

    The tree (it is only one, recolored by me) is the Evergreen tree by Venere.

    @Stridah Sorry it took forever for me to respond. I needed to find a place to upload the map. The places where I circled is where it looks like the angle of the beams are off. Like KSFJP17 said, you may need to raise the end of the bar up more so it's in line with the top of the wall.

    Why is there planks on the lower house? And the sign on the wall? It's very bushy... I mean, greenery is a-okay to me, but unless it's a forest town, more houses might be an idea.
