    Working on a game again, but this time going with a much higher level of detail on the sprites. Been working on a tileset for the past day but had a lot of trouble getting it to look right. I finally got a good one, but heres the attempts I made.

    [​IMG]

    This was the first one. it's alright but the grass was way too small for my liking, and the rocks were a bit off.

    [​IMG]

    Try #2 kept the rocks, but reiterated the grass. It's a bit better, but still off, especially in the detail department. I got mad at this so I decided to sleep on it.

    [​IMG]

    And for this morning, I went back in and nailed it first try. Whadda you know. But I'm happy with how this came out, it's a far prettier tileset than anything I've made previously with it's fun detail and expansive 10 colors.

    and just for laughs, here is 2 tilesets I made a long time ago.

    [​IMG]

    This mediocre one is from last year. It's not awful, but it could certainly be better. Some really boring color choices and symmetrical grass details make it look flat and boring.

    This one is from around Summer 2017. Do I even need to say anything about it. It's awful lmao

    I'd sure be thrilled to mow my grass one day and find that said grass is indeed Cthulhu.
    Just kidding, really nice job and a sure improvement since last years in the color department!

    Actual lighting using shadow mapping and the VSM technique to improve the accuracy and quality. Supports normal maps, possibly generated procedurally right in the user shader.
    Been soulsucking so far, and a lot yet to be done for this to work properly.

    Happy 2020 everyone! Here's content.

    Nothing's final, since I'm not too far into working on this yet.

    Wish these had existed back in the day, whoever made the custom fence that was just 1 instead of 2 pieces was good but like, this would've been so much better

    Some more images of the MvM thing I'm working on. As you can probably tell, I'm aiming for a farm theme with some bits of construction.

    About a year ago I drafted a CP map, but I didn't do anything with it because some key features seemed too complex for me to tackle.

    Yesterday I learned about instances, and the idea became miles more possible. Here's one of the areas I once thought would be impossible for me to make. It's still pretty barebones, but that's because most of my time in Hammer was just marveling at how I never heard about instances before. These things are so useful, and I'm not even using them right yet!

    It's not much, but it's mine. After never doing anything for about 2 years I'm actually sitting down to make a map. Rotational KotH.

    With added size heavy swarm.

    Looks like way to much of a reliance on props for that amount of space. Try to focus most of your geometry on brushwork, be it buildings or ground features. Makes it all around less messy and run better due to the lack of prop spam.

    It's not in a playable state by a loooooong shot, but it's slowly getting there.

    A starting of something new... (Hopefully this one gets further than a rough layout)

    I've been working on a MvM map (Aeon) with a modified medieval restriction to where Engineer can build using his PDA. It can only build low-tech machinery, mainly for use in Medieval. So, these are them:
    20200316204531_1.jpg
    Going clockwise, you've got your mini-sentry--a crossbow in a bucket. It overheals allies and can milk enemies.
    Then the big gun, which is actually not a gun but a "ballista"--a wheelbarrow with a bow attached! It shoots bomb arrows, which can mini-crit on direct hits.
    The center is just a Target Dummy. But wait! It also has the Wrangler shield--Yes, you heard right. It can even be ubered! Only for a short time after repairing to max HP, however.
    The far two on the right are the grills. After a few seconds it spawns magical Meat--Which heals, and gives the consumer some useful buffs. A boost in speed, jump height, and attack rate are included. (However you might have a heart attack)
