Graphics Needing Fixing

This page is meant to hold a list of faces (graphics) that at least one person thinks need improvement, or just doesn't fit in with everything else.

For easy access, consider including path information or an SVN link to the referenced .


In addition to using this page, check the SVN TODO file for suggested improvements.

The Newer "standardized" tileset

Change Perspective

Graphics that need the angle they appear at to be changed (and possibly other things). Most of these where probably not converted from the classic tileset yet.

See the Graphics Guide for information about perspective.

What Why
bagpipe Needs new perspective Doesn't fit in, lacks detail, ugly.
the cannons (cannon_0.111, etc) Only left/right facing but archetypes for aiming in every direction, all look flat.
chalices (chalice[_*]) Looks good, but the perspective is messed up (unless it is supposed to be on it's side)
a_bridge1 too flat
a_bridge2 too flat
ten_kilo flat
food stuffs
What Why
w_glass.111 Perspective messed up
booze.111 Perspective messed up
coffee.111 Perspective messed up
bag_popcorn.111 messed up perspective
ch_burger.111 messed up perspective
Scale down? Green part on the top as per CF perspective? *

Don't forget to make these look like their counterpart:

Lacking facings

Insufficient facings (less than four), but good perspective. It would be nice to have all eight facings for these, but four is a good benchmark for now. This is not (yet) an exhaustive list.

Difficult to give facings

These images will possibly cause problems if facings are added, so be cautious if you attempt these. Major rebalancing may be in order with these if new facings are introduced, as the monsters may gain access to new areas or lose access to other ones.

The Ugly

Put stuff here that you think is just plain ugly, thus you think it should be redone.

what why
crea_serp_c DUDE YOU HAVE TO BE BLIND IF YOU DON'T THINK THIS IS UGLY!!!!!!1111 (Its like it was left over from the monochrome bitmap days of crossfire.)
Opened Containers

These are ugly, and don't look like their closed counterpart.


Doesn't represent what it is

Faces that do not look like the object they represent, or archetypes using a face as a placeholder.

Needs to be opened

The following containers' faces should appear to be open, and need a new face. (archetypes listed below)


Classic Tileset

This tileset is missing LOTS of faces, thus people see question marks replacing those faces.

false, actually, server will fall back to standard set if classic is not defined… but should be filled anyway :) — Ryo Saeba 2007/12/10 17:37
