Nifforum's Isometric Village
« on: March 12, 2009, 03:51:17 »
Basically, we start with an isometric, pixel art house. Then, anyone can add one house to it. Then we keep building it up until eventually we have a huge thing of awesome.  :D

If you don't know how to draw isometric buildings, here is a tutorial:

...Interesting. But shouldn't this count as a forum game?

EDIT: Shouldn't we need more that just houses like grass and trees and stuff?

And roads, but that can be determined when more people place their houses.

This sounds an awful lot like this. (Of course, that project is like a year old and dead.) I think it'd still be possible to add on to the old Niffland project, but Mr Monkey would have to be the one to add the stuff to the Niffland page.
good bye

Wow. That site isn't down yet.  It's very buggy and old.  If I ever re-did it I would change a lot.

No matter, though, as I renounced ownership of the site a little while back, and it's just a matter of time until it all stops working.  :P

I might get a new site in the near future, though, and if I make another Niffland, I will surely add an interface for users to upload images, etc.  :D

Does it have to be handdrawn or can we also use a 3d-Software?
If we can, I got one :^^:

I think hand-drawn pixel art is preferred in this case.

What I'd suggest if you have 3d software on hand, and aren't that much of a pixeler, is make your draft in 3D, then import the render into GIMP and pixel over it on a second layer...
Code: [Select]

<Dataflashsabot> I love you too Gaeel!
<Gaeel> Wait are we really having this conversation?
<Dataflashsabot> I think we might be a figment of Gaeel's twisted imagination...

Hmm.. maybe if I turn out AO and Shadows?
I think these are looking more pixelated.
If they aren't in the right style, then I maybe try to do what Gaeel said.

I think it should be fine as long as it looks pixely. It doesn't matter what kind of program that made it, as long as it looks like it could be pixel art.

I personally still believe it should be redone; placed next to the example house, it would look out of place, because the shading on the wall of the example house is a lot less intense. B:

Just my opinion.

Interesting! If this project becomes real, I might add a thing or two. :)

Pixel art is my hobby.

Oh yeah, and you can also use my avatar.

EDIT: More pixel art.

EDIT 2: Oops, forgot to make it transparent.

EDIT 3: Attachments removed. See next page for updated images.
