Thanks for the comments everyone! Let's see what everyone has had to say:-
Looks nice. I'd brigthen a bit the color of the outlines in the clouds, especially the blue ones. It would feel better if the transition between the pure white and the outlines were softer. Otherwise, you palettes seem really good.
I've brightened the cloud outlines a little so the transition is a little softer.
Nice level you've got there. I'm really liking that palette. I also like the way you've got the atmosphere formed. Adding the touch to where it looks as if you're in between two cloud formations is nice as well.
Looking forward to more!
Welcome to SMWCentral! You said that your images were .bmp. Try not to do that, switch to png by pressing f1 and then down until you see screenshot format or something like that. Press the space bar to switch from png and bmp (assuming you use zsnes) pasting the pic into paint and saving it as png. I must say though, the cloud palette really fits and it looks awesome. Can't wait for more images!
Edit: fixed up instructions
Ah, I do know how to make PNG files. I was just too lazy to convert it into a PNG. Besides, it was only a small file so the filesize won't be too big, regardless.
The level looks good so far! Cotten Candy clouds looks cool, buuuuuut...it was already used. I'm not sure if this hack is in the hacks section but, it was "JDC Games Collab" or something.
Yeah, that's the thing with vanilla hacking: you're bound to reuse something as there's only so much you can do with the original GFX. I can assure you that wasn't on purpose, though.
Well, good news: Cloud Haven has been finished! I'm now underway with a second level simply named Blissful Bay. It's meant to be quite an easy level themed around water and fish. I've got a video showing the first half (approximately 9 screens) of the level. I'm aware the midway point's a little early in the video -- I'll probably move it to where the video ends.
In addition, there's no music yet. I'll be using AddMusicM when I insert music as I prefer the flexibility with the .brr samples as opposed to .bnk files -- you don't have to mess around with Sample Tool for each level you want to use the sampled song.
Aside from that, comments are welcome.
