So what is it about me that you doubt? That my level would be good enough for permission, or that I'm lacking the moral fibre to ask for it in the first place?
He missed a sentence, and if that sentence hadn't been there his response would have been perfectly valid. There's no reason to take offense at it. :huh:

Also it's very rare that Nifflas would give permission to use those restricted tilesets, so it's natural to be doubtful.

Sendy has every reason to take offense at it.  I didn't read carefully, which I really should have done given the circumstances.

Well, there is a lot of text in my posts, so I suppose it's easy to miss... I wasn't offended, I just wondered what I'd done to cause the aforementioned doubt. I suppose I was also slightly annoyed, as it took me a while to get these onto this computer, into the right format, and uploaded. I probably overreacted a bit.

Anyway, here's the rest of the screenies. I really have a hard time picking which screens to show.

Also, hopefully the screen montage will upload as well! The red hatched area is basically a bunch of screens I've since deleted, they were 'anti void' sky screens which I realized were superfluous. I'm pleased to say that work on the level is going very well - much better than when I tried to get into it last time. A lot of the old areas have been given an extra layer of gloss, some small areas have been added, and most of the areas have SFX now :)

Thanks! That made me smile. Currently adding new areas at the moment, and debating whether to use a few CO's in this level, or wait until the next one. I suppose a few won't hurt. I need a bit more foliage in a couple of places.

Are you sure this isn't Knytt? The graphics are making my head spin! :nuts:
Seriously, finish this! I had lost my interest in Knytt Stories lately, but this brought it back.

What the pfargtl! That last screenshot...
I never realised how much 500 screens really was. And I can't believe you made all those screens, probably as high quality as those screenshots!

I was thinking of not playing any knytt stories level anymore after releasing KSDS (too tired of beta testing...), but your level is making me change my opinion... so, I jump the "I want you to finish this level!!!!!" wagon  X-P

Oh wow. That map makes me itch to start exploring right away! It's so huge... it must be larger than 500 screens by quite a bit, I think. Mine's currently around 255 screens, and definitely looks less than half as big as yours.

Love the screenshots, especially the third.

I did have a long reply here about the evolution of this level and the comparisons to Knytt, but I pressed a key that my browser decided to interpret as a desire to go back a page and forget everything I typed, which is splendid!

Anyway, I had no idea I'd get this level of acclaim for my work thus far, so I'm really happy about that! I do want to say, some of the qualities of this level stem from the fact that I often get more time to work on it than most do. Also, this level is actually called 'mess around' in my file system, and evolved from what was almost the first rooms I ever created when trying out the editor and learning about it. Those rooms have been touched up a bit presentation-wise since then, and have had half of the spikes removed from them, but even so, it's kinda weird to think about it. Nothing in this game was planned out beforehand, the entire thing evolved stream-of-consciousness-ly.

EDIT: I have a couple of screenshots left over from the last batch, may as well upload them, although one of them is already out of date.

Well, I appear to have hit some kind of a snag... As previously stated, I have made minor edits to several of the preset tilesets, adding extra detail and creating objects I needed that weren't included. I didn't think twice about this, because I didn't see any difference between layering a preset tileset with one you made yourself, and I couldn't imagine a reason why people would object provided they were credited.

I've also started making CO's out of, for example, the trees, so that I can have them move in the breeze, and I mixed a few tilesets together, to make ample use of the tileset space available for certain rooms. On a couple of tilesets I replaced tiles I didn't need with spikes, so I didn't have to use the pop-out spike objects.

So anyway, I've just read on this forum that you aren't allowed to modify tilesets at all, unless you made them yourself, which has genuinely shocked me, so I suppose it's a case of trying to track down loads of people before I continue with this :/
