In Topic: Critique my JRPG Graphics

20 February 2016 - 02:20 PM

I'm not much of an artist, but it's seems decent overall. I especially like the characters.

My main criticism would be:

  1. The trees are clearly copy-and-pasted. There needs to be more variation.
  2. The rock/stone in the center seems to be too smooth. I feel as though it should be more rough.
  3. The windows on the house seem too small and lacking detail. But I guess it depends what you're aiming for.
  4. I can't seem to figure out what the house roof is made of. Wood? It needs to have more texture.
  5. It might be better to have separate tile sets for short grass and long grass. This would help make the grass more dense without copying that same grass sprite all over.

Hope it helps!


In Topic: Landmarks

23 June 2015 - 01:16 AM

Personally, I find things like an ordinary throne in a castle not very landmark-ey. A landmark should be something that really stands out and might even be a bit odd. It really depends on the universe you're creating, but try making things more unexpected and weird. Because if the player stops and thinks "What the hell is that?" or "Hey I wasn't expecting that here" then that will immediately become a landmark for them.

 

So if you were to have a throne, make sure it's in a big grand throne room which is much larger than all of the other rooms where the throne over-arches everything else and has high-contrasting colors.

Ok, now I've got another error dry.png

 

When I create a new AssimpContext, an exception is thrown claiming

 

Error loading unmanaged library from path: Assimp32.dll, see inner exception for details.

 
The specified module could not be found.

 

I thought maybe I don't have the DLL in the right place, but the exception is being thrown inside the DLL.

Any ideas?

Thanks, JayPhi!

 

It turns out I was downloading the wrong one. Worked pretty smoothly.
