Artisans themed castle, maybe? Mostly inside, with a couple of outside areas.

Anyway, I'm working on a polygon level editor, and I think I'll be ready to share it(push to GitHub) tomorrow:

(I've only barely implemented "details", so they aren't transformed yet)

I'm making it mainly to be able to make structures to test if polygon based collision/gameplay will even work, but since I then was making an editor anyway, I decided to include the visual part(textures, colors and "details") instead of having to make the editor another time if we ultimately decide to go with polygons.

If we do polygons, I imagine it could work with a painting-ish graphics style for the polygons and details, and pixel art characters and objects to make them stand out.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

Sheep, I noticed a bug with the terrain collision. If I jump really high, like at least 50 hits, and then I fall, I can go through the terrain.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

Yes, I've noticed that too. It happens because he's moving at a greater speed per frame than the height of a block, and his movement isn't broken into two steps. But he will have a speed limit anyway, so it doesn't matter.

Edit:
Looks like I won't be able to share my editor just yet. Some unrelated stuff came up, so I didn't get as much time with it as I planned, but here's another screenshot:
editor2.png
I'm pretty much done with the polygon and detail editing, it only lacks depth rearranging, and then there's adding support for other objects( I think I'll stick to just Spyro and the enemy for now), and export & import level data. At the moment, it's at 850 lines of messy code, so I have to clean that up as well :S

Looking good Sheep. And I also second the Artisans castle idea if we can't come up with anything better. Something nice and simple smile

Allright, just to recap - what have we done so far? I don't want to miss out on something wink


The funny thing is- [Crushes the Bullet in his teeth.] -in any other circumstance, you might have had a point there. Except my boss is a woman, I was a chick in the 40's, I hate everyone equally, and there's no one alive who can comprehend my sexual preference.

Excelent big_smile You did very good job. Now I just need to study the code a bit and maybe add something.

Fantastic! It looks like it's coming along nicely smile

Has there been any progress on the homeworld choice yet?

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

I didn't see any discussion about it much. You (writer), NeoReaper and masterscorp (level designers) should discuss it together.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

For the homeworld i might have an idea.
Maybe a dragon village surrounded with energy/magic poles for safety.

If there is going to be a carnival level,
Maybe a ferris wheel where you can hop on to and get on top of the stalls for maybe a secret object.
For the background id love a dark sky with stars and fireworks.
For the stalls and the road lots of colours and bright flickering lights.


Welcome to your destiny!

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

I made a few changes to the code.

Also, how are art's doing with the spyro design? :3
And what about the home world theme?

I'll get it reviewed within the next couple days. I'm pretty burned out code-wise from work today, so don't expect it within the next 24 hours.

The last bit of progress on that was masterscorp's post on 9th July. I haven't heard anything about Spyro's design yet!

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

Breaking Bad has been talking about that a bit on Spyrochat. He keeps saying he means to start on it "soon." Maybe he needs a little push. tongue

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

I've finally gotten around to look at your code, Geko... ._.(first five days away without internet, and then several more days being lazy)
That object.js collection of functions was a good idea smile
Today I'm going to try to make those optimizations to the polygon level I mentioned earlier somewhere(breaking it into smaller pieces in a grid of cells), and perhaps do some more work on Spyro's controls.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

Alright, looks like we're at a bit of a standstill with this project.

First of all, is there anything I can do to help things along?

Secondly, I am going to start removing members from positions if they're not getting stuff done. This mostly means Breaking Bad right now. I understand you don't have much time with your two jobs, but if you're not going to have time I think it might be best if we left this to people who do. I'm going to consider you inactive in this if you can't have the sprite done by the end of the week.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

If it would help, I could compile all the homeworld ideas thus far and allow people to choose which one would be best. I just don't want the level designers to feel that I'm taking over their position :x

I think that would be helpful. I haven't heard anything from them lately; maybe it would help to get a conversation going.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

Yes, do that, RadSpyro smile

The collision grid works successfully, after a day of coding, so I'm going to submit it tomorrow when I've tidied up the code a bit.

I guess the sprites for things like gems and baskets/vases/chests could be made at this point, as they're "vital" to a Spyro game, yet relatively simple game objects(so adding them to the game shouldn't be very difficult).

After tomorrow, I'll be gone for a week again.

Re: Spyroforum Fan Game - Week of June 23rd

Okay then! Here were the homeworld proposed ideas:

- An Artisans themed homeworld

- A village surrounded with energy-poles

...And apparently that was it. I suggested a Gnorc Gnexus homeworld and a Dragon Shores level as an example, but that's all we have so far for homeworld suggestions.

Also, Sheep - What sizes would you prefer those sprites to be? I could take a shot at a couple smile

Great smile You could try to make them with the same size ratio as in the Ps1 games, compared to an approximately 64x64 Spyro.
