- Eilsoe >>> Working on the HUD
>>> this is the list to get a plot... post an interest to get on the list and name the size grid you would like... NOTE: MODS(Including Senocular) and LORD KIRUPA get priority over the bigger grids(plus a choice of custom grids)... this does not mean you will not get a grid.. but it means you may not get the size you want depending on the turnout.... here are the applicants so far...
*bold means submitted
- Kirupa ...1X1
- B3NKobe ...2x1, 1x1
- ubermensch_ver2 ...1X2, 1x2
- idoik banned for ripping off of isocity....
- ScHAmPi...2X2, 1X
- Flash Gordon...2X2
- Senocular...1X2, 1X1
since the creation of the new forum... the sign up is now a free for alll... I will not update this thread any more ...its kinda big and needs to die....
*please make sure that your submission fits the template EXACTLY...
here is a list of things that must be done to make the town complete:
- FLASH GRID LAYOUT
- CONSTRUCT CODING
- ISOMETRIC ANIMATION CODING
- EDGE OF TOWN BLOCKS(TREES,LAKE,ROCKS)
- HOVER GRAPHIC (TRANSLUCENT GRAPHIC THAT POPS UP OVER A TOWN WHEN MOUSE OVER... GIVING DESCRIPTION)
- HOVER CODING
- PLOT ASSIGNMENT
- SMALL PIXELS(LAMPS, SIDEWALK ITEMS, STOP SIGNS, ETC.)
- VEHICLES(ALL 4 ISOMETRIC VIEWS)
- FLYING OBJECTS (UFO'S, HELICOPTERS, BANNER PLANES)
Everything is going smoothly.. thanks to GL for all his hard work... you can see the fledgling town at
i'm gonna make end caps for the roads... Eilsoe is working on the HUD... and if any one can make 1x1 blocks of trees.. that would rock....

I'll take a 1x1 plot. I've never done pixel art before, so I'll start small hehe.

berk - I've never worked a lot with pixel art either. This will be my first original pixel art besides those ridiculous pixel characters I drew for my footer haha.
MS Paint or Fireworks are great for them. I think it's all about us zooming in a lot, and drawing everything dot-by-dot. Almost any program will work!

I think to start, animation should be avoided. One thing about it being pixel is that quality can be set on low without loss of ... quality, and that will help.
Some guidelines will have to be setup for completed entries though. Are all houses going to be external? It would be convenient to update if that is the case, but it also means each would have to be its own swf. An XML file could be setup to handle details and location and simply which houses are available for display meaning adding a new one is a matter of updating the XML file and throwing the swf in some common directory. Otherwise, the fla will have to be edited each time and the swf published and re-uploaded. As seen with pixel people, updates are far and few between in such cases.
Also, just a side note for FW users if you are not familiar with FW enough already, when working with the eraser tool at 1px in size, it erases from the bottom right hand corner of its erase outline and not the center. I've filled in a bug report already and I suggest anyone else using fireworks do the same:

a container clip would work too. That would handle the positioning but would also require the attention of placement for each lot. As long as someone doesn't mind doing that, it would work (and might be a little easier than figuring out pixel location if the city setup is not very regular). Its just a compromise of manual work vs dynamic via loaded content. Manual is usually easier but less dynamic and sometimes less intuitive, especially if the project changes hands.
