You know what I mean. Someone says, "Hey, I can't figure out what's wrong. Help!" You then go into a very elaborate, well-thought out thesis on what to do in a KS level. I find these kind of inspiring, and I hope others do, too. Post 'em here. Also, having the original post would be nice, so its not taken out of context. Spoiler tags would be nice, too.

The transition example you posted is too contrasting. Transitions should be seamless and smooth, so if you are foing from a really light area to a really dark one, you can't just put them in one screen like that. Its better to do it quickly, like dropping the player down a hole in the ground, so that the player won't notice any jarring differences between the areas.

Another way to do this is to put a short transition area between the dark and the light one. Something that is somewhat darker than the light area, but doesn't contrast too much.

I'm sure I have, but I can't remember any at the moment. I wrote all about this on purpose, and believe me, It took a long time to get all the tags right. Like I would want to say, Do this: [sp[i][/i]oiler][/spoiler], but then I would have to write [sp[i[s][/s]][/i]oiler][/spoiler] to make it do that, but then to put that in this topic, I had to do a [sp[i[s[b][/b]][/s]][/i]oiler][/spoiler], etc. :P

I also put a lot of work into the story here.
Lurk more.

Since this is a general topic, not specifically about Knytt Stories, I'm moving it to Creativity Support.

Not exactly a lecture, but I put a lot of work into Common Bugs (not very much text compared to other things, but I remember that the pictures took some time to get the way I wanted and so...).
