Description

Hi! I’m not dead, no matter what you might have thought. (FYI, I just haven’t been playing lately) But to the tileset.

Yes, I can imagine your thinking “Oh, no, not another Candion set!” But this one differs from the others in a few key points.


1. The tiles are ordered differently. I had a lot of trouble deciding on this one, but it wouldn’t make sense adding all the new stuff with the old tile layout. Levels made with other Candion sets will not be compatible with this set.


2. The colors are correct. I don’t care if the version that came with JJ2 had everything red, the actual Candion had pink walls and black backgrounds.


3. There’s lots of new stuff, as well as stuff that was left out of the other conversions, like the mountain ranges.


4. I made it. Yes, I really did.

REUPLOAD: Stupidly forgot the arrows! Well, they’re in now, albeit at the bottom because I didn’t want to change the tile placement around..

Yet again, another perfect conversion from Violet, this time of Candion, HH95 planet 1

While we’ve seen many conversions of Candion (Dethman (QoB), Astronia (along with Exoticus) and other “automasked” versions) I must say this one’s the best. Not only does it have all the tiles, Violet added (again) Destruct scenery (not that good, looks like it’s made in Paint), vines, etc. I think the only thing missing is the kitchen sink ;)

This is worth an 8. Tell if I’m being too modest :)

This is definitely better than the version of Candion I did many many moons ago. The pallette has been fixed, the masks are much better and it added a lot of cool stuff that should have been there in the first place, such as the mountains in the background, those green blocks, the star and the proper sky.

It’s not perfect, though… certain tiles look “washed out” (such as the lollipops), while the colour seems much darker. I don’t care much for the destructable tiles… I think the destructable tiles from the official JJ2 tilesets work best with any tileset! The poles, new gingerbread faces and warp pipes are an imaginative nice touch, though…

All in all, quite a good effort. I’ve downloaded Violet’s other tileset conversions, and I personally think this isn’t the best of the lot. Still worth a download, and better than what I could have done.

There are quite a few Candion conversions, and I must say that I am not very fond of any of them. However, this tileset is certainally the best Candion conversion I’ve seen so far. Their is some color bleaching (the lollipops for instance) and the color seems darker, but it’s still a very good effort and definitely worth a download recommendation.

Violet, you really should make some more conversions. The ones I’ve seen so far are excellent, and I think you could do a great conversion pack.

I apologize for the color bleaching on the lollipops, but not counting sprite colors and the textured background colors, any one palette can only have 124 (or was it 128.. forgot) colors. Candion originally had three hundred and something, so a few things are slightly bleached, but the lollipop’s about the only thing it’s noticable on. Still, if you think it’s that bad, I can try to make it look somewhat better.
And if the colors seem darker, it’s because that’s the way they were in JJ1..

@Taz
Disguise helped in that without him the whole thing would have taken much longer (using 16-bit, Palsuite and Terralogic). And yes, the colors are changed. None of the previous conversions actually used the JJ1 colors.[This review has been edited by Violet CLM]

YES THANK YOU VIOLET!!!!!!

I have been searching far and wide for a Candion set. Unfortunately, my computer needed reparing and I wasnt able to surf the internet for a few days. I am overjoyed because by far Candion is one of my favourite sets. I dont mind if that that there are a few bad points because a tileset cannot be perfect, especially if its a convewrsion. Usually, conversions dont strike this high, so I think we have found us a talented converter.

Edit: Craccoboy, im not saying your wrong, but rating conversions is healthy for yoy :)
Besides, Violet worked really hard (yeah right) to give us this conversion, and it took a lot of time and effort to make it just like a tileset or level[This review has been edited by Blackraptor]

Edit: For all u who dont believe me on this is a good conversion, more to say, so keep scrolling :P

Candion being one of my favourite planets, is not quite hard to remake. The author included the backround mountains, and the backround. Correct me if Im wrong, but I think it has all the required tiles, such as the candied ground, the lollypops etc. The animations are low, but thats not the authors’ fault, since candion has few animations. There are the usual needed tiles such as destruct scenery poles, eyecandy, ginger bread men ;P. Im sure this converison would come into use (it already did ;P) and i reccoment you to download it or miss out on a great conversion made by the great convertor, Violet CLM, good job.

As you all may know, I usually give conversions an 8.7, but this uis different. I never actually noticed that the J1-Candion colors were messed up previous conversion sets, and that tiles were excluded. But Vio had decided to fix those errors and add cool extra stuffness. What is SSF?

I guess when I finally get all the JJ1 sets converted, I will begin making my ultimate level pack, the JJ1 files.

I don’t think it’s right to overrate conversions, these just aren’t your tiles…. So you really can’t get higher for this than a 6. Sorry. (Same critism that I got for my tilesets like CE)

Even though 6 is the max for me with 100% ripped tilesets, I still wanna look closely at it. I must say that you’ve done a good job on converting this

@Tublear: Ask Fishguise. Im sure he know it ;P
The review:
Make more things like this for us, Violet. You are pretty good in making JJ1 things. This is a another professional remake. The colors, are changed, okay, and there’s SSF now (Wow! Dishguise helped?), okay, but this just rule. Tile placement is very very very (Etc.) good.

Just download this.[This review has been edited by Taz]

Full review time!

What this is
This is basically a conversion of the pallet Candion. For the most part, the conversion is complete with little problems, but there are somethings to talk about.

Tiles
For the most part, everything is here. The basic candy is here. Caves, gingerbread man, lolly, jazz 1 style signs, different types on candy, candy polls, tubes and jazz 1 style background. The mountains are here as well. I’m not a huge fan of the destruct blocks. We got arrows, textured background, hooks and vines as well. As far as I can see, mostly everything is here. Good job!
8/10
Animations
The weird flashing poles are here. So are the arrows. However, the lollipop had an animation to it and it isn’t present. Good job, but you missing one.
8/10
color
For the most part color is good. the color’s look kinda deducted from the some of the tiles but it’s not your fault. I’m giving a 10 because the color blending isn’t your fault. (Dang pallets)
10/10
Masking
Masking is near perfect. Straight lines for the most part and everything is masked properly. Good job there!
10/10
Pallet Events
Well lets see. Water, textured background work perfectly. the jungle poll is usable as well. That’s about it.
5/10
Reusabilty
Not bad. Even though it is only a conversion, you can still quite a bit with this tileset. From caves, to a candy garden, to outdoors or a mixture of everything. Good job!
8/10

Final Score:47/60
Score: 8.7
Rank: A
DR? Yes. this is great tileset from Violet. I look forward to more of his work.
