Great conversion. One of my favorite tilesets. Now I have 5 more types with the original two having added tiles. They all look great. Worth downloading this.

Nice Conversion you made one question Why didn’t you made the night version of Carrotus Diamondus?

Before I opened this, I was expecting another pointless edit. BUT, it was far from pointless. I LIKE IT! I think this can be improved some more though, it could probably do with some extra scenery blocks. I’m talking about the blocks with the Keyhole, “?”, Weapons, and also the Blank ones. I like all the added features including the waterfalls, I know they are overused but I still like ‘em. I think the tiles on line 71 would be better on line 37 to go together with the Castle. I dunno if that can be done, but if not, then don’t worry about it. There are 6 different versions of the Carrotus set that can now be used. I do find Carrotus quite hard to use though because of the tiling and stuff. Now for the rating, I am going to give this an 8 because I like this set but it can be improved. There is now a new Diamondus version now available which looks great. I like the Diamonds and everything in this new version. I will now award an extra 0.2 points for the Diamondus version, making the rating an 8.2!

SUMMARY

GOOD POINTS

*New features including the waterfall.

*7 different versions including the new Diamondus one.

BAD POINTS

*Quite hard to use.

IMPROVEMENTS THAT COULD BE MADE

*Extra scenery blocks

*Move tiles on line 71 to line 37 to go together with the Castle.

RATING: 8.2

RANK: B = Very good

I would recommend giving different filenames to the tilesets. The @ and _ characters might give problems when downloading them via JJ2.

So here we have an updated Carrotus. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Look:
Carrotus looks pretty good, but it’s an original JJ2 Set, so instead, I will
rate the look of the variations.
Day:N/A (It just has added tiles)
Night:N/A (Read above)
Diamondus: Looks like a natural Transition.
Zombified: Spooky.
Evening: Another time of day for once.
Lava: Reminds me of Angel Island act 2 from Sonic 3…
Midnight: Now this actually looks like night.

Content:
Once again, the majority is original JJ2, but there’s some nifty stuff added below:
Fire: always a nice addition.
Updated caves and logs: Much better now.
Beanstalk extras: Nice.
Destructable Scenery Blocks: Always a good thing.

A few tiles in the original Carrotus are pretty useless(Like the optional other colo(u)rs for Destruct Blocks), so they didn’t get any variants.

Usabillity:
Carrotus is a Tileset that is almost impossible to really screw up with.
The new tiles are all at the bottom, so you’re not gonna search for them long.

Overall, pretty good update. Download recommended.
It effectively replaces the old set. There could have been more updated tiles,
but the old set was fine too, so not too much taken off.

Score: A solid 7.7 to me.
Pros: Easy to use, fits JJ2 perfectly, cool stuff added, many different variants
Cons: Not that much edited, some useless tiles are still a thing.

(Phew, what a MAMMOTH review for a simple fix!)
