a minor edit by me.
The ‘New’ tileset is meant to be a little conversion with extra possibilities in layer work.
the file contains: 4 edits with 2 new pallettes made by me. the day/night version have a better contrast.

Nice tileset conversions. You’ve added some crucial tiles and made two nice pallette swaps. Especially the brightgreen-grey version appeals to me. You have no reason for not downloading these.

Faw tried here. While the new additions may come in some use, nothing really here is added to increase the overall usage of the set. It’s not a bad attempt, but really doesn’t achive much. The 4th pallette looks quite nice though, although a little twisted.

RecommendedWouter rated 7.2

Now, these are some nice tileset edits, or pallette edits orso…
The only question is, why are 1 & 2 just the normal Diamondus tilesets?

Nice conversion, I liked the waterfalls, the black background and the 4th pallette(hellish :D)

Download if you don’t like Diamondus B….(like me :D)

Recommendedabgrenv rated 9.2

Great conversion. I like the diamondus tileset so some extra types will certainly be welcome.
If you like the original diamondus tileset then you should download this.

FawFul: There’s nothing absurd about Stijn’s review. He’s entitled to have an opinion about your work, and to defend it. Just as you are entitled to disagree with his rating and his arguments. However, you’re overreacting. I don’t see how did you infer hostility from Stijn’s review – your comments about personal attacks and distrust are out of place here.

Master Sven: Please don’t jump into the gray area of public debate.

Certain people: Please do remember that downrating a review just because you disagree with the rating is wrong. Like Stijn said, read the review first, and think about what you’re doing. Grytolle, who took time to read through Stijn’s review (even if he still downvoted), is a good example.

I want this mess to cease, starting now. I don’t want to see this kind of situation to happen again, so please let us cooperate.

Wouter: i added some crucial tiles.. so it is also an improvement on the normal pallette. btw, the contrast from the diamondus 1 pallette is better too

i did read before downrating stijn’s review… i don’t see why other tilesets than the original would be relevant for the rating of this one

for the rest i think the screenshots look cool, but i won’t review since i don’t make levels anyway.. maybe that’s why i don’t see why it would have been good to reorder the tiles either

He tried to to a sort of Diamondus remake, I prefer more the IC one but anyway this is good.

New Diamondus 1:
the old and classic diamondus that everyone knows, has some new tiles at the bottom of the tileset wich I think makes it more complicated to use

New Diamondus 2:
the night version, I don’t have anything to say

New Diamondus 3:
This is interesting, has similarities to Diamondus Garden, I thought that this was like an old version of it

New Diamondus 4:
very nice i like it, dark and red, like a holloween version of Diamondus :P

I didn’t quite share Master Sven’s enthusiasm for this set. It was, I’ll admit, a fairly good remake of the set. An extra cave type [really just a black wall bg], some modified trees, a couple added tiles here and there, it’s basically just a re-edit of the orig Diamondus palettes upload [also done by Faw, I believe, good job on that one…].
Nothing much notable about this one, except maybe the nice color variations and minimal buggage. No music was used, in fact no example level was used at all either! This strikes me as unusual.
So in summary, I liked this a lot. Not certainly enough for an 8, but I liked it. Positive DL rec, I guess. :) Oh, and a 7.0 rating.
I did read Stijn’s review! And I hold no grudge against him for it. I just don’t happen to agree with his opinion…

I was awaiting this tileset. The pallette swaps are very nice and really add to your level’s atmosphere. Also I am quite a diamondus fan and this conversion gives me the opportunity to build better levels with this tileset. I would like to say to everyone: Download this and make at least one level with it, cuz its nice.

EDIT: I Agree with FF. Also I really hate PPL who give helpfull ratings for tileset reviews. (-)

BIAS: you shouldn’t say DOWNrating but just giving a helpufull rating…
