Secret project (closed)
« on: May 14, 2010, 03:00:24 »
First off, I don't know whether this was more befitting of the Collaborations board or the Knytt Stories board. It's technically a KS level thing so I decided to put it here. Please move if necessary.

Now, then. Don't think that this is going to be a collaborative KS level, because it's NOT. It is a secret project, however, so I can't really just post about what's going on. If you decide to help with this project it will require very little of you. I'm not asking for a whole tileset. I only need a very small level. If you want to help, post here. I'll PM you with the details. Here is a list or required people:

Tilesetters (closed)
Experience required: Ability to create reasonable quality tilesets; flat blocks of colour doesn't cut it.
Commitment: Low
Total spots: 5
Available spots: 1
Current tilesetters: stiggits, egomassive, BloxMaster, grimwit, green.cookie

Gradient makers
Experience required: Drawing/sketching. Preferably something besides just gradients.
Commitment: Low
Total spots: 0-4
Occupied spots: 2
Current gradient makers: BloxMaster, grimwit

Level creators
Experience required: Level creation; ability to work with various background tiles
Commitment: Moderate; create a small(medium?)-sized level
Total spots:
Current level makers: Pick Yer Poison, Healy, BloxMaster, LimeLemon, rrc2soft, BackwardsO

NOTE on Blox and grimwit: One area of commitment will be decided based on requirements.

This sounds interesting, but I'll probably want to wait until you at least have a few tilesetters before signing up.

Also under the Level Creators heading you put "Current Tilesetters: None."

I'll try to be a tilesetter, depending on what you want.
Many a hand has scaled the grand old face of the plateau,
Some belong to strangers and some to folks you know,
Holy ghosts and talk show hosts are planted in the sand,
To beautify the foothills and shake the many hands.

I might do some tilesetting. Consider me a non-commital volunteer.

Sounds intriguing, but I'll need to know more before I sign up. I'm looking to increase my Knytt Stories portfolio. PM me I guess.

I am happy to have a go at a tileset, never seem to find the time
to start a complete level so a smaller input in a bigger project
would be fun.

Ooo...Secret.

I'm in...for now.  I can do pretty good gradients and some okay tile work.  You know me and level design, tho.  Preffer to make the gradient first and build the level around it.

Still, Yell at me if'n you need me.
Forever working on a Level called Sarah.

I guess since you have at least a couple tilesetters by now I'll sign up.

Feline Monstrosity has chosen to not join the project until early July. If I don't get five tilesetters by then, he's back in.

@egomassive: Unfortunately, I can't tell you more unless you sign up. If you pick one of the three positions as a possibility I can give you a little more info. i.e. "I may make tilesets, but I might back out." Then I would tell you more about the tilesetters.

@ stiggits,Healy: I'll PM you guys.

@grimwit: I've seen the way you make levels with gradients. Sorry to say that technique won't work so well here.
Edit: If you wanna make normal gradients or just tilesets, however, be my guest.

Sign me up as a level creator. You can use the two levels in my signature as samples of my work if you'd like any. Just keep in mind that if there end up being unmentioned constraints that I dislike, I may opt to back out.

Why did you sign me up as a tilesetter? I wanted to do level design.

My bad. It wasn't all that clear. I'll send you the level design PM.

Alright then, I will be a tileset artist. I'm pretty good at imitating others' styles, so any style you're looking for I can probably do. The more specific you are the better, and don't hesitate to criticize.

I can see now that you're revealing different details to different types of collaborators. I'll trust that what you tell me as a tilesetter is all I'll need to know.
