Topic: Ring replacement: Shards?

Could one of these replace rings?

Let me know what you think. With a few changes, they could be shards, batteries,
or whatever makes most sense.

I can prepare in-game sprites myself if anyone's interested in these shards.

Should I try for a different design?

I don't thing this would be very nice, but what would make sense is carrots, but then there's the other characters as well... smile

Dead account. YEAH

Re: Ring replacement: Shards?

hi svgmovement,

i think it would make sense to use batteries, since Surge, Neon and Charge are all about electricity smile

Re: Ring replacement: Shards?

How about one of these?

..or would something else work better.

The design is great! Loved the negative and positive poles, as well as the color decoration. smile

The colors of the three batteries on the top (silver, blue, yellow) are the most appealing IMO, though I don't know which one would be better in sprite form. Can we try them out? I just think that the yellow battery should have a stronger yellow, thus implying a better contrast.

How do these sprites work?
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/7l6hdpd6zyiju0n/battery-sprites5x.png

// Ring
sprite SD_RING
{
    source_file     images/battery-sprites5x.png
    source_rect     0 0 304 16
    frame_size      16 16
    hot_spot        8 12

    // spinning
    animation 0
    {
        repeat      TRUE
        fps         16
        data        0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
    }

    // disappearing
    animation 1
    {
        repeat      FALSE
        fps         8
        data        16 17 18
    }
}

Re: Ring replacement: Shards?

Looks great

Re: Ring replacement: Shards?

I don't like 'em. I LOVE 'EM! cool Please by all means put the batteries inside this game as a replacement. I'm all about that!

Here's another idea. Increase the power if the player hits the + side, decrease when hitting the - side.
