    Well anyway, I might as well come back. My life problems (that some of you know) has stopped for now, hopefully, it won't continue.

    Anyway, I'll continue brushing up on CAZ, completing OBZ and I've started on this which some of you know

    It's meant to be medieval... kinda anyway. And I need some opinions. It isn't finished, and I'm putting lightning effects in it. That's sorted except I've gotta draw the lightning *gulps*

    Questions? Comments?

    Looks cool :( However maybe needs a dash of colour, some kind of contrast to the browny gray. I'm thinking torches on the walls, or just more colourful brickwork (like in S3&K HPZ, Green and Purple are unrealistic but look prettier :P)

    Yeah, it looks nice but needs some wacky color variety. Else it will look too "serious".

    I don't think you need to make a post about comming back, however a post for new screens, yes indeed! I think it's not only a good idea but looks bitchin'. (zomg californian slang)

    Hmm... I could put torches in it, but it won't be animated because I'm using the palette rotation for lightning in the background. I could put some statues up of some kind... If I can draw it lol

    I want it to be medieval. Putting different colours in will make it more unmedieval and more like Toy Kingdom from SA3 lol

    Then you should probably make variations of grey. Not all stones in a castle are the same.

    UPDATE! (sorry for the double post)

    NOTE: This is not in the BETA that is in the Staff lounge!! (The-Redteam forums I mean)

    [​IMG]

    I've added chains into the level, and some broken bricks as shown. Also lightning in the background which does flash!

    Another pic, bricks changed inside the castle, walk-through-wall pic there, and the lightning effect.

    The level looks good, the white bricks seem a bit bright. The lightning and the walk-through wall looks good. Keep up the good work.

    That is what I was thinking.. I'll try to darken them a bit... I'll also put some cracks in the wall... or windows? What would be better?

    Man, you're so amazing at this stuff... I wish I was half this good.
    No, let's make that quarter as good.

    I wish I was at least half as good. Then SCDX demo 1 would be released by now.

    Have you ever played Music Plant Sonic Advance 2?

    What you need are some color changing block in the middle of the gray-brown layout.

    Yes I have, I have SA2 on the GBA lol

    Hmmmm.... that's not a bad idea... but If I do that, then the lightning will have to go! So what would you prefer (this goes to everyone).

    Lightning? Or colour-changing blocks?

    I made some more updates...

    I tried to make the bricks inside the castle a bit more darker as shown. I've also put a window there, all neat and tidy (part of the window smashed for effect)

    [​IMG]

    For the hell of it, I've put an animated GIF up to show roughly how the lightning effect goes..

    Nice. Quite.

    Is it too much work to put clouds at the top and lightning shooting from them?
