Description

This is a tileset that’s been on the backburner for quite a while now. But I started working on it again and set Christmas Day as the deadline. so here it is in all its rushed glory!

This is a pretty unconventional set in several ways, which you may or may not like. There are also some rushed bits which I don’t like. It is also yet another castle-themed tileset.

Before I give you any more reasons not to download this, I’ll shut up. ENJOY!

This is a fast tileset review.
Introduction: Toxic Bunny made a new tileset. I checked out this tileset and found out this is not the easiest set to use.

This tileset has enough eye candy for a level to make with it. I saw that in the example level. However, there aren’t many animations in the tileset. I don’t really know what this tileset provides, because there are trees in it, but also some castle-like things. I like the mountains of the tileset.

The size of the tileset is 800 tiles. This is good enough to make a nice level with it, as it’s not too small. It could be hard to use alot of these tiles.

I can’t say this tileset is easy to use, but some things in it are. I’m not going to use this tileset soon, I don’t even know if I will make a level with it. It’s not that I hate the tileset, but I just use other ones. =P.

I don’t really know what gamemode is recommended when making a level with this tileset.
Overall this is a nice tileset and I give it an 8.5 and a download recommendation.

Use this? If you want to find an underused tileset, you gotta try this since it’s only used for this example level.
Edit: not really an edit, but could we stop giving comments and rate the tileset/do nothing? Thanks.

Another edit: I am using this tileset now and I am going to admit that I find it pretty hard. This isn’t a very bad thing, because it can be original to use a tileset that’s hard, thus not going to be used alot.

Chateau – Toxic Bunny

Firstly, looking in JCS, this tileset looks really un-userfriendly. I see random tiles placed in garbled piles and can’t tell what is what. Otherwise, there is a large tile variety, and the textures are great. The theme is semi-original (the way it is pulled off was more original then the actual theme, rather). Masking is alright, although I don’t think the trees should’ve been fully masked (maybe only the tips?). Unfortunately, there is no warpable backround (just a single light blue tile) and not much you can do with the set if you want part of your level using it to be outdoors. There is some nice chandeliers and barrels/bottles, but otherwise not a huge amount of layer 5 placeable things (knights in armor, desks with papers under candlelight could’ve been included or something along those lines). Thus, this set excels in some areas, but (even greately?) lacks in others.

I think I would give this set an 8. It’s still a good set and people should definately download it and give it a try.

Nice job, Toxic Bunny. I like seeing your tilesets :) .
Here’s my opinion:

Theme:
- Good selection for a theme. Not many people can do a good “castle” tileset. However, there is a bit of confusion between whether the tileset is supposed to be realistic or cartoony.

Eye Candy:
- Great for the things that are there, but there could easily be more add-ins.

- I like the chandeliers, barrels, and stained glass windows, especially. Also a little confusion between 3D and 2D drawing styles (i.e.- between the ground and Destruct blocks). Perhaps shadows would help this.

- Great texturing job (what program?)!

- The arrow signs on the ground outside are hard to see. I think the average gamer would miss them.

- It’s hard to tell what the Hurt scenery is.

- Animations would be a great addition to this tileset

Usefulness:
- One could make a decent level out of this tileset, but it leaves something to be desired. Namely, a lot of event blocks (Warp, Sucker Tube, other Destruct block types, Water Block, Trigger blocks [dotted outline / lock & key blocks]).

- It also supports almost no palette events.

- The inside ground is also unnecessarily complicated. Try organizing the tiles in preset patterns that your level designers will use frequently.

Background & Scenery:
- Very minimal. The background is too plain.

- Having no textured background is acceptable, and this tileset can work fine without one, I think, but there needs to be a lot more than what’s there now.

- The grass in Layer 6 needs to be combined with scenery in other background layers to be effective.
- The trees in Layer 3 confuse the dimensions by sticking out of the lower levels of dirt.

Masking:
Generally quite well done!

- The tile at (27,8) in the set has an unexpected corner. This shows up in the demo level at (43,22).

- Nice rounded mask on outside hill ground!

- A few other random minor blips

I’m actually wondering why is my review gone from yet another upload… It was right after WR’s if I happen to remember correct, at least it shouldn’t have had anything unusual. Weird. ;/
