I love the new tileset stuff! It would be funny if you could actually interact in some way with the soda machine.   :P2

How does the 6 tank machine look in the flat knytt stories environment?  It seems like it would look odd, unless there where some supports under the back tanks.

Also, I had it in my mind that there would be a connection between the statues and the labs, like they are researching some property of the statues.  I don't see that happening yet in the tileset, and I'm unsure how the tanks relate to that idea.  Perhaps we need a sensor array of some kind that can be layered over a statue and then can seem to be hooked up to vats, computers, etc.

But back on the number of turns, which I don't think we ever fully answered, we are talking about being able to go at least 2 or 3 times, right?  At LEAST after we've run out of volunteers so we can finish it. 

Okay, here's what I'm going to do.

I'm going to make a list of people who want to go a second time around. When we get to the point where we run out of volunteers, we will know if the level needs more or if we're pleased.

I believe this would be the best solution for now. So I'm gonna put myself on such a list, anyone else? (I suppose headgrinder, but I should still ask :))

The object with the green tubes is the radioactive reactor mentioned in the level. It just powers the lab. I think it looks great in level. I see it as staggered height, not a front-and-top perspective. You can see supports on the side tubes attaching to the tank. (Probably more obvious with the forum's Knytt theme.)

A sensor array that can hold a statue is a great idea. I thought the focus was on the metaphysical symbols. That's why I included so many computers. I should make a chalk board with images of the statues and symbols on them too (if I can make them fit.)

@ bulbapuck: totally in dude.

@ egomassive: staggered height makes since, but I though the "support" was just a pipe.  I've actually worked around a lot of very large stainless steel tanks because I grind steel for a living, so I was looking at it with the view of "where the heck are the supports a tank that size would need?"

The blue parts are pipes. There are small horizontal bars beneath for support. I don't know which you are referring to. I tried all sorts of supports. There's so much detail already that adding substantial supports started mucking it up. That's why the pipes ended up blue too. Black pipes made a mess of things. I'll give it another go later when I can approach with a fresh look.

@Bulbapuck: I was sad too when I saw Nifflas' cabin on the first screen of the game knowing that I planned to make a cabin myself. What also makes me sad is that some of the ideas in these sets, I developed for the big level I'm working on. Now, parts of my level will be less unique. :( Honestly the first time I saw a screen shot of Smashy's Tundra in use, I thought my snow scape set had somehow been leaked.

@egomassive:  Yeah, referring to the black supports underneath.  Let me back up and say again I think it looks fantastic (and your snow scape preview is likewise amazing!).  But as a perfectionist and a guy who has gone through a lot of critiques in art classes, I blurt out my every criticism because I find it helpful when people do that to me.  So, my thought was "how is it supported?  I can't tell," but in fact I think it looks fine.  It could be that they are simply attached to the big metal tank in the middle, and the leg supports that I envisioned would in fact be very cluttery. 

Anyhow, I probably talk to much.  :P

Wow, my first star! Is that 2 stars or just a second nomination for the first? Either way, thanks guys. I intended to throw some tiles together in a few days. It's been over a month and I'm still here. It's been fun so far, but I'm glad these sets are nearing completion. I need to focus on my own projects if they're going to be released on schedule.

Edit July 19, 2010: Here is the lab set with sensory equipment. Designed to work with short statue from cave set.

Oh geeze, you definitely get another star for that.  2 stars at the least.

Man I totally forgot about this - I've been so busy. Sorry for not contributing, you can give it to the next person. Sorry for keeping you waiting needlessly. Perhaps I'll contribute another time when I'm less busy. :/

Heh. I was planning to make a level with an underground lab/facility where all the scientists were missing and there was blood on the walls and it was supposed to be creepy and such.

Now that is going to be less unique as well. :P

There isn't enough room to write all that. We'll have to leave it like it is. :)
