Topic: City Chill Prototype

December 8 2010

the level was not updated because it contains objects that are not publicly available yet. check back later.

The Background is now 100% original smile

--------------

Following the ideals from Dark Forest, City Chill is taking first steps. This time i will open everything and hope that this becomes more of a community project, than the last proto level. I say this because back then, i was on vacation and had free time 24/7, now that i'm working again it's hard to keep the same pace. if you have any thoughts or work you wish to contribute, please post

Project files posted below. I'll try to keep them updated according to submissions.

Required files:

T-bar http://opensnc.sourceforge.net/forum/vi … php?id=615

Re: City Chill Prototype

i forgot to mention:

there is practically no level. just a few spots to do some testing.

the purpose of the t-bar is to slide from building to building

Now I understand why I could not find the end of the level.
I don't like the (blue) springs, or was this temporary?

Re: City Chill Prototype

temporary. i just wanted to see the bg moving without anything covering it. if you want to change the level layout you're welcome smile

Re: City Chill Prototype

It's a noble work. smile My only concerns about this prototype brickset are the ripped content, the slopes, and the fact we're deviating substantially from the Art Specification Document. We should try to make things look more like classic old games (16, 32 bits), just like Charge already does.

I'll play around with gimp and see if I can get something done for sunshine paradise in that style, so I can post it here as an example.

Re: City Chill Prototype

this one's gonna have NO ripped stuff at all. since free graphics don't count as ripped, i guess everything's ok if the license is respected to the fullest.

those images are full of leftovers and placeholders, but you're right those slopes are terrible. very angular. fortunately SilverstepP sent me a very nice template, and i think i'm going to transplant his slopes to this sheet.

i also agree that this doesn't look much retro. but it still has a long way to go. i guess it's only good when you say it is smile

don't be alarmed with the huge amount of frames. they are 16*1 px and repeat x and y. that does a nice day-night sequence that takes a few minutes to complete.

you'll see what i mean when you test it smile

don't be alarmed with the huge amount of frames. they are 16*1 px and repeat x and y. that does a nice day-night sequence that takes a few minutes to complete.

you'll see what i mean when you test it smile

Nice! You're really good at backgrounds, I must admit.

If I'm correct, the number of frames shouldn't slow down the game.... I think it's just the frame speed that could slow it down. (Alex, you'll have to confirm this). But keep up the good work, KZR!

Re: City Chill Prototype

there should be no slowdowns, even on older machines, since, like i said, the bg source image is very small, the frames are very small, and it only runs at 1 fps. this technique is very old, except it use pallete shifting instead of line-shifting an image. the method is very similar, though.

thanks for the cheering big_smile

a mockup of a possible building with interiors. more mockups in progress.

Re: City Chill Prototype

Your background moves the wrong way! Replacing all the scroll speed numbers with negative ones should fix this.

I agree, KZR is doing such a great job here. smile Nice technique.

If you put more frames in the sequence, the whole animation will take more time to complete (it has nothing to do with the overall speed of the game). What controls the speed of the animation is the "fps" setting in the background/sprite configuration. This reminds me that the fps setting only accepts positive integers for now... Seeing this kind of problem makes me think it should accept any positive real numbers as well. I'll fix this asap. smile

do you mean numbers with decimals (floating point) ? because i tried them and the engine interpreted as an integer hmm

Ah. I misunderstood the question.

Since it's an easy fix, the floating-point fps setting is going to be available on bleeding edge 334 and greater. It's going to work for everything.

Re: City Chill Prototype

Regarding the day-night sequence, some other ideas for the background came up.
None of them is done yet, and they may not all be cumulative, since the bg system is very limited. Maybe there are workarounds, but let's keep it simple.
I've been studying reference on snow climate, and i'd also like to keep it natural-looking
If you'd like to suggest anything please do smile

Current Features

  • Day and Night Sequence

  • 2 layers of Falling Snow

  • Multiple parallax layers (with some bugs atm)

Possible Features (Cumulative)

  • Dynamic Weather (i.e. snow storm, snowy, not snowy)

  • Background Fogging dependent on snow level (layers close to zindex 0 become fogged)

  • City lights switching on at night and off during the day

  • Visible sun and moon on clear sky

Possible Features (Not Cumulative)

  • none yet

Edit:

How do you like these new building bricks?
They allow buildings with different shapes
