Key Term: Custom Environment System

Important Notes
I did NOT make this!

Please read the instructions in the script, they contain informations how to use it.


Introduction

This script can display maps in a type of 3D with depth. It is has a low lag factor.


Features

  • draws your map in Mode 7, type of 3D perspective
  • less lag than other Mode 7 scripts
  • adjustable, even in-game
  • optional horizontal and/or vertical looping
  • supports animated autotiles
  • can use a fixed panorama
  • optional "whitehorizon" display to give a feeling of distance
  • can resize sprites if on a world map

Screenshots

Just make a new script above main and paste this code into it.
The script can be found in the demo.

Instructions

Inside the script in the first comment.

Compatibility

Most probably not compatible with special map display customizations that affect sprites.

Credits and Thanks

It's very good, I consider using it in Chaos Project as well when I sort out the compatibility issues. I will also make a compatbility plugin so it can work with Blizz-ABS since I doubt that it will work with it just like that.

No, I meant the issues are with my game specifically. That script works great. It even has a very low lag factor. Only the memory usage is a bit nasty with bigger maps. <_<;

This would be kinda cool with the ABS, but i'm not sure I would use it.  I'm goin for the old-school style.  It's a great script though.  Maybe I'll make a minigame with it...

So, how did they pull it off? I know they just made the panorama show up at the top for one, then just made all the layer above like 1 be normal, then rendered the first layer?

He/She/They made it the same way I suggested. My idea was the display of a special sprite, the idea here that was used is one sprite per screenline. Surprisingly it doesn't lag as much as I thought it would. I think the sprites could be made more lightweight. This script gave me a good idea of how to make such a script better. I might attempt it some day when I have more time.

On my PC running XP with 2.2 Ghz processor and 1 gig ram, I can hardly notice it at all. But this just shows how slow Ruby is compared to other languages, and even then the speed at which Ruby does stuff is astounding sometimes to me. I can hardly imagine the speed of C++/Java...

I have a DualCore at 17.3Ghz with 1GB RAM, it doesn't lag much on bigger maps.

Sorry, I don't know if that is even possible with this script. You could try using several events that are flat and floating, but then you'd still have no side walls which will still look weird. >.<

AMD 5400 2x 3.0 ghz with 2 gigs memory and a 256 mb e-PCI card.

In other words, powerful and no lag even on a 500x500 map

hmm... So I'm guessing you'd have to create a cutom tent or any other thing that doesn't look nice on the mode 7?  :-\
