Description

Here it is folks, my (Disguise) 50th tileset! And it’s been made with Mirrow all ESPECIALLY FOR SUPER SAIYAN! I’m sure you all remember he won our hotel competition, YaY! Good for him ;)

Anyways, I’ll be more serious and keep it short. This is a desert or persian themed tileset. The 3rd tileset made by me and Mirrow. ENJOY!!! :D :D :D

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A HOTEL TILESET! Seeing as this caused some confusion, I just stuck it in here. The reason it’s uploaded under this name is because the person the tileset was made for (Super Saiyan) won a HOTEL HEROES competition. He could choose ANY TILESET he wanted, not just hotel tilesets. Oh and Mirrow and me are too bored to make another account ;)

Fishie YOU ROCK! ;) <— to fishie.

THE TILESET ROCK TOO. Hum sets his hyperactive meter to 0

it0s a desert – arabia tileset with ghosts, sand, building, and all what you need. It haves water, palms, really.
the eyecandy is very good, some buildings for 6&7. That all makes this a rating of 1.0.. Wait.. what’s that? Oh.. A brain eating ghost? I give this a 9.0!
CATCH!

There have been few hotel tilesets or levels that I actually like, but I knew that Disguise’s 50th tileset would have to be something special. Did I mention that I hate hotels? Well, there come along a few hotel levels (“Five Star Hotel” by Super Saiyan) and tilesets (another Hotel Heroes tileset called “Hotel Dream”) that make me think twice. And this is one of those tilesets. I’m not exactly sure how this qualifies as a hotel tileset, though. It features a lot of tiles, the bulk of which are Mediterranean-looking sand and oasis tiles. There are also some building tiles, which are obviously supposed to be used for a hotel level. It also contains some advertisements for dating Mirrow, in case you have the sudden urge to use them for no particular reason. Some of the art reminds me of Agama, strangely enough, though the style is still very much classic Disguise. The hills and the textured background both look very realistic and spifftacular, with shades of the original Hotel Dream tileset. Some of the building tiles look cheap (especially the red ones) but still look good when used in a level. The only bed tiles included are quite large but have Super Saiyan’s name all over them. If you aren’t Super Saiyan and aren’t making a level featuring Super Saiyan’s room, these tiles are pretty useless. The fire is well-done, and is not a carbon copy of the default Jazz 2 fire, which is nice to see. Also included are well-drawn but cartoony genie tiles. The water looks very well textured, but looked a bit off when used in a level. Still, the oasis tiles are some of the best tiles in the tileset. While it has great tiles for building the next Taj Mahal, some of the normal hotel “features” seem to be lacking. There aren’t any televisions, unbranded beds, or anything like that that you would expect to see in a hotel level, but it’s possible to make due. In short, this is a great-looking tileset that is more of a building and desert tileset than it is a hotel one, but is still worth using if you want to make a Persian-themed hotel level. Great drawing, and certainally worthy of being Disguise’s gasp fiftieth tileset. A definite download recommendation, and a rating of 8.5.

EDIT: Apparently my assumption that Hotel Heroes would be making a hotel was wrong. It is, in fact, not intended to be a hotel, but could be used as one I suppose. It is actually a tileset to make an Arabian castle. Ignore my stupidity and download this tileset. Now. Or perish. And be attacked by many angry squirrels.

EDIT AGAIN: Fine, I’ll review this as a normal NOT FOR HOTELS tileset which is NOT FOR HOTELS. This is a good Arabian-themed tileset that is NOT FOR A HOTEL. It features well-drawn land tiles that are NOT FOR HOTELS. It includes some advertisements NOT MEANT FOR HOTELS for Mirrow, who built this tileset, which is NOT MEANT FOR HOTELS. It’s a good tileset for NOT BUILDING HOTELS and definitely worth a download and is worth NOT BUILDING HOTELS with it. And, of course, this tileset is intended for NOT BUILDING HOTELS. Sorry for misreviewing this NOT FOR HOTELS tileset, which is, of course, NOT FOR BUILDING HOTELS. And since this is NOT FOR HOTELS, my rating for the NOT FOR HOTELS tileset increases by a NOT FOR HOTELS 0.2 to the very NOT FOR HOTELS score of 8.7. And a NOT FOR HOTELS download recommendation. Very good, NOT FOR HOTELS job, Wisety and Mirrow and NOT FOR HOTELS.

-Trafton aka NOT FOR HOTELS

P.S. Did I fail to mention that this is NOT FOR HOTELS? Well, that’s because it is. Now, take this 8.7 and run. If you see a green van following you, make sure that all of your pie is in France. It’s necessary to public safety that you do not eat ketchup. Thank you. I will now go see a psychiatrist that is NOT FOR HOTELS.

So I take this as being disquise’s 50th tileset then. I dun like it as much because i dun really like these bright bright tilesets, and some more tiles could be added, but this will be a fun tileset to use, and im sure many people will use it. The palette is good, and the useful tiles are included. I dont have any grudge towards hotels, but they arent exactly up there with my favourite levels, they are more down and take less effort to make like tests. I reccomend you to download this, since it has NOTHING to do with hotels

I really do not like this as much as you people do.
There are.. about three kinds of ground. One is sandy stuff that looks good and has some darker stuff on top to walk on. It looks good, but it needs more tiles for the inside, or just small platforms, as otherwise it gets boring. But it’s very usable, and it has some great water stuff. The second is the inside of the temple, which is the big solid block stuff you see in tilesets like Cheez, Cool Day and Temple, only it looks awful and isn’t nearly as versatile. The graphics for it just suck. And then there’s a lesser ground, which gets attached to the temple one, which I think is supposed to be piles of coins, but it’s really hard to tell. (It doesn’t look like coins) There are some gems you can put in it, too.
There is also lots of persian stuff, like towers, and some doors (which look ok, but can’t seem to close), genies (which look weird), flames (which look bad), clouds, background eyecandy, a throne, and some other stuff. But I have to go now so I’ll rate it later.

Woo! His 50th set! An occassion worth celebrating! It’s come a long way from its humble origins as a blank grid. ;)

The eyecandy is nice, and I like the water alot for some odd reason. :P Tonnes of stuff to use, the Genie looks rather cool as well.

No masking errors I can spot (although some hillarious dialogue ‘Wisety, that made my day xD) and the ‘free mirrow’ stuff down the bottom was especially cool. ;)

But yes. One of his best sets (aside from a few others that I like better :P) Download now

The palace part could have been better. I don’t like the white ground. It looks like the old titanic/ship tileset. The curtains aren’t that good either. They should have been shaded more and better.

The desert ground texture could have used more variation but the desert tiles are quite good otherwise. The water is fine.

The white buildings in the background don’t look very good. The sucker tubes could have been more original.

The usability of the tileset is fine, and there are enough little eyecandy details you can add. The fire is great.

Next time wait for BTFH to betatest. ;-)

It’s not bad, but the stuff at the bottom are a little out of place IMO.

I joined a server which used this tileset and I felt like lowering the rating to a 4.5, because the tiles in the palace are too ugly. The walls/floors are just plain colors, no nice patterns or anything. But when I came outside, I saw a beautiful ground, with great water. The outside tiles definately deserve at least a 7.5.
The average of a 7,5 and a 4,5 is a 6, so that’s my ultimate rating.[This review has been edited by CraccoBoy]

Cool. :) It’s some sort of a new tileset idea. Yes, we’ve seen many desert tilesets, but this one has innowation that there are some arabian buildings and stuff like that. Geenie looks a bit stupid, but oh well, he does his job. Tileset can be used for hotels, but it doesn’t have to, it’s nice for single player levels, and not so bad for all other gametypes. The sand looks a bit “unreal” (heh, who thinks now about Unreal game?). It’s very square, what makes it look unnatural. This isn’t too big problem, but lowers my rating from 9.5 to 9. Buildings are nice, thought they look simple and even my brother JSZ Spaz would draw them without a problem. Overally this is a nice tileset, but I’ve seen better of you, Disguise.

Okay, you all say this tileset has bad palace tiles and stuff and bla bla bla.
Well, time to review >)

I recently finished a level with this tileset and I must say: it does not really matter that the palace tiles have no texture. It would only look annoying, especially if you are someone who places tons of eyecandy in his levels like me. The genies may look useless, but they are very useful when used in combination with the food stalls. I easily created something that looked like a crowded market with it.
The sand looks very great, but has one major drawback. It has only one “inside” tile, meaning the ground will look quite monotonous when you create big bodies of sand. Oh well, you can place small platforms inside it. The water looks RUX.
Background scenery looks rather cool. The sand mountains are almost photo-quality (maybe a bit exaggerated), and the textured background is leet. I wouldn’t use the palace-blocks-with-thin-borders as layer 6 or 7 eyecandy (as in the example level) but rather as level 5 eyecandy (in the meaning of “sprite background layer”), if you understand me (probably not, harrrr). The music for the example level really sucks, at least it doesn’t fit, I would rather use that ZARASATHURASTA by DRAX music or how it’s called. Whatever, I’m rating the tileset, not the level. The fire sprites by mirrow have been re-used once again. The small fire looks better than the big one. I like the curtains, altough they could use some more shading like FQuist mentioned. The throne is usable too, but it’s too bad you HAVE to include the “super saiyin” sign with it or it won’t look good.

To sum it up: the graphical quality of this set is not as good as we wanted, but that is taken away by the HUGE amount of possibilites this set offers. A lot of different landscapes can be built with this set, from a crowded market to an empty desert. h00ray for the hotel heroes! This tileset truly deserves a 9.0.

BTW: My HERO!
