Swaying Trees



Still messing around with my "Nice Little Map System", I decided to replace the marker trees with something a little less...static.



Each of the colored bands sway individually. The images were made out of construction paper. If you would like to see a demo, download here. The demo generates a random forest.

Neat!

A little aliased, though.. Maybe due to the teensy rotations.. Perhaps a simple left-right movement might help reduce the amount of aliasing..

But otherwise..

Mmmmm!!!
Can't wait to see the main chr if the trees look that great!

Yeah, the aliasing is just something I have to put up with using the graphics engine. There's an optional texture filter which solves the problem, but just creates an uglier mess, shown here in the outlines:



I'll try out your idea though, and see how that does.

neat! is everything going to be made out of construction paper in this game? kinda like how platypus was done with clay~~ you could do an origami thing. looking forward to more demos!

I really haven't decided yet. Most likely, it'll end up being multiple styles. Maybe some marker here, crayon there, construction paper, tin foil, whatever...

Creative I wouldn't have thought of moving them like that to create animation. I'm looking forward to see whatever this turns into.

This is really good blanko. I like the construction paper look to it. I hope you will even release your map system as a userlib. I would try and make an rpg game with this.
