Summertime! (paused)

Standard

Hey! I'm working on a new hack called Summertime! It's gonna have a lot of custom GFX, beautiful level design, custom music and a little ASM. For now, I've made a "Nintendo presents" screen, more modern star GFX and used block SMB3 styled graphics. I'm also using DKC-styled status bar made by WhiteYoshiEgg with my own GFX edit.

A new "Nintendo presents" screen


DKC-styled status bar with edited GFX


A star (a Yoshi coin placement). You can collect all 5 stars and save them.

A used block

I'm still unsure about the used block GFX and the "Nintendo presents" screen. I really want to use the DKC-styled status bar GFX and the stars. Some feedback would be nice.

You seem to be a capable level designer, so I can't wait to see actual gameplay of this.
I do, but the 'presents' screen could use a larger white block to fit in everything better.

Thanks a lot! I assume you like my graphics?

I guess they're okay. Your "user23507 Presents" looks flat and could use some shading. Your block graphics also look flat even with shading because said shading is just straight-edged and directly following the outline. This is called "banding" (a form of pillowshading) and is best avoided for just this reason.

On a side note, for future reference, you may want to wait until you have some full screenshots that at least, show a hint of your level design. None of what those four images show is really noteworthy enough to start a thread over, especially since some of those graphics could use some work ontop of being such little content to be shown in the first place.
My layout has removed you.
I'm not good at drawing GFX. Also I'm using square SMB3-styled coin block graphics. There was no graphic file for used blocks in the folder, so I was forced to draw used blocks myself. Any suggestions how I could draw a used block?

I find that the used block looks fine as it is right now. Maybe that's just me though, i'm not that strict of a person.
Why not just find the SMAS-SMB3 used block outside of SMWC and just paste it into YY-CHR?

Okay. I also think the used block graphics look fine. I'll fix that "user23507 presents" screen and put some screenshots of levels in future.

I won't use stars as a Yoshi coins replacement because you can collect the same star more than once if you enter to another level and return to the level you started. I'll use star coins instead

Cool to see that I'm not only guy who makes hack just for this summer! (I mean Summer Season 2 I'm working on)
Anyway, "Nintendo Presents" looks bland, but I like used block.

Good luck #smw{:TUP:} Have good Summer Days!

I wish you happy summer too!



Back to the graphics questions, does this look any better? For me it does.

It looks better! I think moving "Presents" part 1 pixel up doesn't hurt.


Yeah, the text still seems to be too low, but the color is good now.

Announcement!

I won't be (most likely) working on this hack this summer because I have not enough courage to work on levels focusing on custom sprites. This isn't cancelled, I'm finishing this for the next summer.
