Give me some tile ideas

Postby SuperSonic » Sat Sep 10, 2011 2:09 pm

Hey dudes (and dudettes of course^^) I'm really bored right now and so I thought about making a tile sheet for GE and releasing it. The problem is, I can't think of what to make. I don't want to make more of that grassland stuff but I can't think of anything else that would provide a good enough challenge :(

Sooooo, I wanted to know what you guys think I should make (Note: I will release it to everyone once I'm done). I will gladly accept any ideas :D

Well outside things are all generally overused (ie. grass, cave, desert, snowy place) maybe do something abstract/different? Purple land, or an insane asylum, or an old cabin. Something not everyone else has done would be neat. Then again, if everyone uses the basics, they'll be more likely to be used.

Although caves and dungeons are done a lot you can do so much with them to make them your own and throw in your own challenges.

What about a futuristic lab like place? something that gives the same feel of a game like portal.

Edit or a rainforest :)

That's a good idea too. Thanks Nerd. I'll give you a point as soon as possible (GE makes you wait to give more points). But thank you :D

I'd like to see them too, you gonna put the pics up again?
Here's an idea I have if your still bored, not wanting to take the fruits of you labor, just rambling as I often do. A frozen tundra forest with ancient mechanical ruins! Had an idea for a world like this for a long long time. It'd be a world just slightly further from the sun than ours and so the plants have learned to adapt and thrive.

...Got to finish BoxByte but damn I'm itching to tile now

@Master0500 & ikarus: I am trying to stay away from the normal outside terrain stuff but if I have time, I will consider both of your suggestions. Thank you :)

PS: This tile sheet is free for anyone to use in their games. just make sure to give me credit. Thanks, Sonic

The house looks great to me! Better than anything I can draw :P

Clouds aren't cloudy enough, though. Not to be mean, but they sorta look like melted marshmallows. I personally think they're impossible to get right so for attempting I give you props. Maybe this could help you out?
