[CuteGod] Discontinued

Post by kv83 »

Yeah, i'm trying my hands on the prototyping challenge of the site I posted some weeks ago in pixal art;

After two hours of programming I got a nice random-based map with dynamic generated shadows :)

I'm programming in C# with XNA. Just thought some of you might find this intresting. Don't know whether I'll ever see it as a real project, but thought it might be cool to get me starting with XNA :)

Looking pretty sweet so far kv83, im just having a little truble following the perspective. The heights seem a little out of whack?

EDIT - This would make a cool calc game :).

Horizontal distance between tiles should be 100, vertical distance (same level) should be 80. Each time you go up or down a level, should add or subtract 40 pixels.
These tiles are drawn spaced too far vertically.
You know your hexadecimal output routine is broken when it displays the character 'G'.

I have the 100 and 40, however... 80 feeled akward, so I used 85, which looked less akward. i'll post a picture this evening with 80 :)

Looking cool, though I agree with the comments on the slightly strange heights. :)

Are you only using XNA's limited class library?

Ok. I changed the height to 80. The result;

Is this better?

Sort of, however when overlapping with the row behind it is ugly. It would look much better in an isometric view.

Nope. Feel free to use the concept. It isn't even mine concept :P . I'm not really into ASM atm. Maybe sometime in the future again.

I prefer it when the tiles are not "synced", looks too planned and thought out as it is now :)

Cute.

Can you define "synced"? Do you mean the pattern on the cubes itself? Or am I missing something here?
