Very nice, congrats!Woop! Wooop! I finished another project!
Ok, so my first goal was to finish som edits of MV's fantasy RTP (A1 and A2 to be precise). Unfortunately I am not done with that, mainly because I spent two days learning about color manipulation and then ended up scraping my edits anyway. What! Why did I do that? Well, I didn't like them and I realized that there was another way to get a better end result and that starting over would save time and effort in the long run.
Parallax Panda's Goal For This Week
During this week (the next 5 days since I'm a little late to the party) I will work on editing MV's "RTP" to make it more unique. I have accepted the reality that I'll probably have to rely on a mix of original and RTP resources for my games - but even so, I at least want to give them a fresh feel. Hence I'll be leaving no tile untouched as I work my way though all of the tile sheets. Deleting stuff I don't like and changing, hopefully improving (not sure about that tho! ), the tiles that I do like. The important thing is to make it my own so it mixes better with whatever tiles I decide to do myself later on. It's also a learning experience for me since I'm not used to GIMP.
I'll be starting off with the fantasy resources, focusing on the A-tiles first. I want to have at least the A1 and if possible also the A2 tiles done come next monday. I might also try my hands on making a water image to use as a parallax to go with the A1 tiles, but this will be a bonus goal!
I did sort my plugin list, and I started this thread to figure out how to do the credits. I also ended up contacting a few people on this forum whom I was not sure how they wanted to be thanked in my credits. So while there is still a bit more work to do on the project template before I start making any real games the credits part is done, for now. Still a few details that I am not sure about that might be subject to change in the future though. Need to be careful with these legal stuff.Besides the tilesets I'll be working on another thing, my "Game Template", which in itself is not really a game project but rather a project base that I'll use in the future for all the games I'm going to make later on.
What I want done before the end of next monday is to sort my default plugin list. This includes deciding what will be the essential plugins that I'll be using for most, if not all, my projects and what I'm going to have to delete. I want to keep this list as short as possible though. The plugins then have to be placed in the right order so they'll work properly.
Another thing I want to do during this drive is to make a simple "credits" screen and fill it out with whoever I know I'll need to thank based on my default plugin list. This is going to require some research from my part actually since I never made a credit list before and I'll probably create a topic on this forum about this tomorrow if I have time. Well that is all I guess.
