Awesome, love original level recolors, once I start making the rest of the People Chimp I’m definitely going to use the Jungle Storm tileset. I’ve been looking for a really dark version of the tileset and this will be perfect!
Download recommended! It brings some variation to the original tilesets.
This is an amazing conversion.
Layout 2.8/3: The tileset is much easier to use now, although I would appreciate it if the water reflections on the ground in the underwater tiles from the original had been included.
Usefulness 2.5/3: The first version isn’t a great deal more useful from the original since they both share many of the same tiles. The added waterfalls are very nice, though. The evening version could have been a bit lighter, and the storm version could DEFINITELY have used more light. It’s very hard to see your way around in it. I would suggest giving the tiles in the storm version a blue tint either through the whole tile, or along the edges to make them more visible. Other than that, they’re very nice additions.
The Conversion 1.8/3: It could definitely use lighter tiles in the evening and storm versions. A light outline on the edges of ground tiles would do the trick.
Originality 1/1: The storm version is definitely cool. I’d be tempted to use it if it wasn’t so dark.
Overall: Well done! If you could just make a new upload with tiles that were easier to see and work with, that would be great. At the moment, I think levelmakers would be forced to make a day version of a level and then switch the tileset just to know what tiles he/she was using.
Edit: You know, I agree with the comment below me. There’s a lot of eyecandy that’s missing from the original tileset.
I like the changes made here, but calling it “2.0” is a bit much, more like a 1.5 if you ask me.
Jungle 2.0 is an improved version of Jungle, but it could still be better.
P4ul has given it a new layout, which was a very good move. (I couldn’t use Jungle very well until I downloaded this :P) However, the layout was made up by taking large areas of the tileset and moving them around. It would of been better if you made a layout of only 1 or 2 tiles at a time. I think the diagonals should of been closer to the top, and the textured BG should go at the bottom.
Some layout areas were very good, like the way he took all the wooden tree stuff and placed it all together to make it easier to use.
The addtions include Trees from the OEM Jungle (Yay :D), rain and lightning tiles, waterfalls,
bushes wierd white tiles at the top, a hook, and leaf tiles to be used as caves.
I like the trees from the OEM Jungle, but they should be a bit lighter. The Rain tile looks ok, but it could be better if it had a more rain drop like shape. The Lightning is not that good though, it needs to look more like lightning. The hook is a bit too small. I like the BG leaves but like the OEM trees they need to be a bit lighter. The grey/green destruct blocks are good, but maybe you should make blend with the rest of the set like in Diamondus Beta. Also, the arrow signs have been replaced with Inferno arrows. I personally think the old arrows look better in Jungle, but this won’t effect the rating.But the waterfalls and the bushes are just Blah. The bushes use less colours than they used to, which makes them look ugly. While the waterfalls look good in this set, they are becoming overused in tileset conversions, so they are becoming boring. Why not make your own waterfalls? If you aren’t bothered to make your own, either use them from a tileset other than Diamond Dust or edit them so they could be used on layer for by adding extra
While there is serveral stuff that could be improved on, it’s still a good conversion.
@Cooba: Lol…I know. :p I’m not going to use them in future tilesets. And you made a good point Cooba. His rating is now 8.2.
EDIT – I’ve decided it doesn’t deserve an 8.2 now. 90% of the aditions are ripped, and that example level really disguise the true quality of this set. (It makes the set look a lot better than it actually is, but this wont affect the rating.) Those background leaves that I thought were your’s were actually ripped from Omen Woods. Even if they were actually made by you, I still think you should make some new leaves not used before.
I don’t now why you people see this set as “an amazing conversion.” It’s still pretty decent though.
EDIT – Those OEM trees just look so cool, that I’m increasing the rating.
And please don’t complain Cooba, even I made all of these mistakes in my own conversions, it doesn’t mean I should rate this conversion any higher. 7.9 is my final rating, and I won’t change it.
“While the waterfalls look good in this set, they are becoming overused in tileset conversions, so they are becoming boring.”
The problem is, it’s you who made them overused and boring in your conversions, so downrating P4ul’s tileset for the mistakes you made is quite illogical :)
This is significantly better than the standard Jungle tilesets that came with JJ2, and also way better than many of its competitors.
Those that have read my reviews on Blade’s tilesets may notice that I don’t pull any punches when reviewing a pathetic tileset. That’s just how I operate. Thankfully, I don’t have to do that here, since these ARE examples of good tilesets.
The day version is the one I like the least, but that’s not a problem, as the other two are amazingly good. The evening version accomplishes amazing atmosphere with skilful use of the scenery available (such as the waterfalls and foliage).
The storm version is easily the best jungle-themed tileset when it comes to storms, as it takes the good lightning from Windstorm Fortress and combines it with strong rain. Put the six rain tiles in a 2×3 layer with both tiling options and some good automatic speed settings, and it looks like it’s chucking it down.
On top of all that, it’s ultra-strong at making trees. If you’re interested in a dark jungle environment, the evening and storm versions are almost essential. Quality-wise, this is close to chasing down Swamps of the Sleeping Jaguar. This is worthy of a strong 8.7.
Tileset usage(original ideas)10/10
Your original idea is to use the tileset simply. There are not suprise, ships, trees, made from water, and other crazy stuff. That’s the thing I like- you’re in the jungle, not in the jungle, near the spaceship, or near the city.
Easy to use: Yes! 10/10
Very useful, I’ve liked the demo level!
Enought stuff in it, I think!
