    Many drops make a river

    Like the first poster said, this is worth noting when aiming for 2D animations with multiple directions. Thanks for posting! IMHO, these figures suggest that a better result might be had in rendering your model in the engine instead of "pre-rendering". As a bonus, you can face the model at any angle. Obviously this is a design decision for your game though and I don't mean to step on your toes. Just something that I'd be considering if it were me.

    Spells and Spell Effects

    Not really on topic here, but where did you get your current gfx?

    Starfarer by Fractal Softworks

    Looks pretty sweet! I love the highly detailed style. Reminds me of the old shmups.

    About Me and Woody3D

    Hey, First of all, very nice work! Looks really natural. Okay, I'm going to go the obvious question: how much of your scene is geometry and how much is imposters? Also, if you are using imposters, how do you animate them? P.S. Welcome to journal-land! [grin]

    I don't know what it is but I want to do the art.

    Looking pretty cool! Any chance of some more PixelCraft entries?

    MVP Part 2

    Hey, congrats on the award! [smile] Next year you can go for the hat-trick. Do they tell you what you won the award for? I'm always curious when I see people have won these things. Is it for your work in communities, or your work as an author, or your professional work?

    A cautionary tale...

    Hey, just wanted to say thanks for writing that up. While I'm sure it must have been painful, at least you learnt some lessons along the way. Thanks for sharing those lessons with us!

    Top-down games

    Looks pretty good. I've had the same struggles with top-down myself. Personally, I think you may end up with the same issues as you would for isometric. Ie, it won't look quite right unless you draw all of the different perspectives. Still, it could end up being a good compromise.

    First entry

    Looking pretty good there! I'm impressed that you've already crunched the SC2 format.

    Pixelcraft: The Colors of Frogatto

    I always love reading "beginner level" stuff on making art (especially pixel art). Thanks!

    The castle top

    Looking forward to seeing this demo come to life! Sounds like a good idea to break out of the coding every now and then to actually build something with it. I've gotta remember to do that myself. [grin]

    Your Idea Is Too Big

    Great post. It is so easy to give in to the feature-creep and not even think about scaling things back. Building the "biggest and best" is something I think is taught to us at a very young age. Everyone is encouraged to "shoot for the stars".

    USB remote control receiver for PowerDVD

    Yeah, I too was pretty much just following the instructions, although I did make an effort to try and learn about the utility of the basic components. I also did some electronics at uni, but again, it was very basic. To be honest, I pretty much have my hands full with work, fatherhood and my current interests, but I might look to pick some of this stuff up in the future. Can you recommend any good sources for learning?

    USB remote control receiver for PowerDVD

    You are the hero of my childhood electronic dreams. My dabbling in this stuff ended with simple "Fun, build 100 radios & flashing LED projects" kits in my youth. Your posts are always an inspiration. [smile]
  15. Quote:Original post by Prinz Eugn The legendary(-ish) LanchanL had a comment last time I figured I could answer dramatically. Awww shucks!(-ish) But.. yeah! I imagine that'd be crazy being in one of those things when its doing that. I reckon it'd feel like they were trying to bank a skyscraper or something. [looksaround]
