Battlefield Tileset Project
« on: June 01, 2012, 01:34:31 AM »
Step onto the battlefield!

I'm bored with working on my project right now, and I'm going to take a break from eventing and what-not to work on a new tileset. It's going to be a battlefield tileset, with lots of custom graphics. I'm opening up this project to suggestions and requests from you all. I'll put up each piece for you to examine. Tell me things you'd like to see, and I'll make add-ons for them. Once I finish enough stuff, I'll compile them all into a tileset and post it as a complete resource.

So far:

HORSE ARMOR Game_Guy's request.
*Modeled off of steel horse armor from the Oblivion DLC*

Command Tents (with color options)

Tents with Rune Charms

(1st- Terrorize Foes, 2nd-Good Heath(medic tent?), 3rd Ward off aggression, 4th Justice.)

Weapons Dropped

Siege Weapon! (Rough draft, I know it looks crappy)

That sounds awesome, GrimTrigger.

How about... A custom military-ish tent with different symbols you can have on the sides.

Right now I only have something for the front...

That looks great. Btw, what I meant by designs was designs on the actual tent. Sorry if you already understood that.

Ya, I'll need to work a lot more for that one.  :wacko:

I would leave the shadows going one way. Most RTP shadows go to the right but you could create them all going to the left.
I like the sword and the axe but the spear I kind of have to squint to really see what it is. The arrow is nice as well.

I have a suggestion for this, maybe a simple standalone weapon rack/armor rack. Are you going to do an Interior as well?

Thanks! I'll add more variety later. This is more about the concept. I'll make some broken spears, shattered shields, etc.

I never really noticed that right thing....I thought the RTP was from overhead....hence the shadow following the angle of the item.

As far as a weapons and armor rack, I'll make one that can hold them all, for an outside armory. This is all outside stuff, but I suppose you could rip them and put them in an interior map if you wanted to.

I'll fix the spear up. Probably needs more dark contrast.

@Thallion The tents now come with Rune Charms on the side to aid in battle. See the explanation below the image for the meanings. You can even mix and match them. I believe if I positioned them correctly, I'll be able to use them with the flags once I merge everything.

@Landith I fixed up the spear a little bit. Tell me if it's more visible.

While this is great work and all, you still need to follow the rules like everybody else. You can't legally double post until 24 hours have passed. Just go back and edit your post if you need to, it'll mark the topic as unread for everybody.

Sorry, got over zealous. :facepalm: Any suggestions on this tile set?

Hmmm...., maybe some wagons, horses with armor, weapon and armor stands? What you have so far is really good.

Thanks. I can modify the existing horse and wagon into characters so you can animate them. I'll make weapon stands to go with the base camps. I was considering making graphics to facilitate jousting and other tournament events. I can work thuds in with your requests nicely.

Updated to include horse armor, and I'll be setting it up for heavy armor knights and lances once I get more time. I can make the siege engine a character sprite as well.

Any more ideas? I'll plug away on a few things in the mean time.

So grimtrigger, I've just started editing tilesets, and I made several types of military tents. Would it be okay with you if I post them here, and you could use them in your tileset?

Sure. I'll make sure people know who did what

Those are pretty good. I like the color of the tent.

Thanks, I was going for a camo green feel.

Well, I wouldn't say its camo green. More like light blue. But I do still like it.

I really like that red flag design. Can you separate the flag from the tent so people can use it independently?
