GOTHIC CATHEDRAL TILESET
1. Short story of this tileset:
During the theology studies (catholic) I got an idea to make first religous tileset.
What’s more, I hadn’t seen any gothic tiles in j2o. So I stared drawing this since Janurary
2008. During the works, Dodges and Sperry joined to team. Also my sister Cif draw
many of sculptures. And we finaly end this in July 2008. I hope it wouldn’t be controversial
pack :) (this Jesus looks nice in TSF).
2. How to use:
Tileset have 2 version: for 1.23 and TSF. There is only one difrence between them:
background. I think, that in 1.23 version you can use the leafs as 6 and 7 layer.
If you want to make bautiful catherdal for your marriage, you can send me greetings
to email@example.com. I hope you create nice churches :).
There is one bug in in “Gothic Example 1.23.j2l”: password. We erased them, so you must
press only enter to see this level.
I’m Galavant (if you don’t know), and I maked 60-70%. Dodges helped me with sucker tubes,
woods and some detalis. Sperry maked other thinks plants, grass. She was our florist :D.
Cif maked vases and many sculptures, and she also add some gothic furniture.
Greetings for Sperry, Cif and Dodges for help. Also for Slayer, because I forget him
about much of time (I hopu you understand what I think). And greetings for every jackrabbit
fans, Christians and non-belivers, who search the truth :)
This is great, well done tileset. Looking at it makes me somehow feel happy. Kepp up the good work, Gal ;)
However, I’d like to see more latin sentences in the set, which could make it looking more ‘medievaly’.
I saw just 2 of them in TSF version (1.23 has only one). Too bad you wrote one of them with many grammar errors :(
The drawing style is like townhouse. Unfortunately, the usability is also like townhouse. While the set contains lots of creativity I don’t see many ways to use the set creatively.
On closer inspection, the leaves could’ve been drawn way better, but the overall look of the set is great.
Wow, thats all I can say.
You’ve made a tileset that looks good and is easy to use! :) DR definately :)
Very nice level! I liked all the details like the buttresses [as EM said], the architecture and whatnot. Good job!
I’m lovin’ it!
//e: rating changed from 9.7 to 9.2 after i worked with the tileset. it’s still really awesome, but working with it is really unhandy.
Very Nice Tilesett!
Very cool tileset ;)
With this tileset can be done very good lvl’s.
Yay, my 1st “long” review :)
All tiles are perfectly done. This tileset can bring us at medieval times.
I can’t say more about it, because it shocked me.
This tileset looks realistic, so I rate it 10 (I love gothic things <33)
Download recommendation: YES, OF COURSE!
Never seen something so great before, really good job!
i likey :) a lot :P gr8 eyecandy at least. gj
Damn this is good, I love it (and by the way im not catholic). This is a perfect tileset. Very good job man.
Lark says that the name of this tileset doesn’t fit, but it’s actually perfect. I was actually surprised to see how much detail is in this tileset and how well it follows the theme of a gothic cathedral. Gothic in this sense does not mean dreary or depressing, it is simply an architectural style which was commonly used in medieval times, characterized by things like pointed arches, large windows and flying buttresses (which are present in the tileset). Most of these churches are anything but dreary.
Overall this is a great tileset. The author is obviously extremely talented, and knows how to make a tileset that is very unique. The attention to detail is what really sets it above most others, but everything else about the tileset is excellent too, including the art style.
The screenshots tpeak themselves. This tileset RULES!!!
I can’t resist the temptation of downloading!
Quick review.. I was pretty surprised by how this tileset turned out, everything looks really nice. While this isn’t the most versatile tileset, what is included just looks really nice.
The graphcis style here isn’t at all realistic looking, and at the same time, it’s not entirely cartoony, either. I think this is the perfect environment for JJ2, to be honest, because that’s how all the sprites were drawn, and that’s what I like about this tileset the most.. everything just fits, you can place any event in the level and it just looks at home.
I’d say the name of this tileset is somewhat misleading. Here we have a cathedral of sorts. But it’s not like all depressing and gothic or anything. Everything here looks very cheery and upbeat. The tileset has plenty of arches, alters, statues, brick structures and such that give it a very.. I dunno the word.. churchy.. cathedrally.. feeling.. but it’s not like medieval or anything. It has a very modern feel to it, which I really like a lot, because you don’t see that too often mixed with cathedrals. It just looks really nice. And pleasant. I’d say pleasant is the perfect word to describe this tileset.
As for masking and other miscellaneous things, I saw no real problems.
My complaints and suggestions for improvement, well, first of all, I would’ve loved to see some more versatility (is that a word?). Being able to run outside in between buildings would be great, even if you just added some grass here and there, it’d be enough. Also, I would’ve liked to see pole events (well, just the psych pole) work, but that’s okay, nobody really uses them anyway. Oh, and flower pots. I dunno, the flowers and all look like they’re just kinda floating there, it’d be nice if they had some nice pots to go into. There’s no textured background in this tileset, but that’s alright; the background that’s there fits very well.
My final and biggest complaint is the lack of color. Everything’s just brown and green; you seem to have a lot of talent and creativity, so put that to work with colors the next time!
Overall I’d give this a download reccomendation, to check it out, if not make a fun little battle level or something with it.
Lark, You revealed Your huge unawareness… You haven’t any erudition about gothic architecture. I recommend for You that site -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_architecture
Read about gothic, and get back here =p
Btw: I made CTF level, and conversion that tileset’s to 1.23 version. Galavant forgot tell about it 8)
Btw2: Lark, that wasn’t Quick Review…
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
