After releasing The Tomb of Zarthos I started working on my next mod (working title is "The Dark Veil: Crystal's of Luna" )
In some crazy optimism I decided to take everything a step further and not just retexture existing tilesets but make my own tileset models from scratch, and make the game take place outdoors aswell as indoors.
Now after 3 weeks of work I'm begining to see some progress but I'm also realizing that I have dived head first into a tar pit.
I think I have underestimated the work involved making this be 5 light years or so
A lot of the things I wanted to create are not turning out the way I hoped (water for one), but some things came out even better then I had hoped for (stars in the nightsky for example that can be seen in the video)
The basics of the forest tileset are almost done, and I'm now in the process of creating clutter items and props (mushrooms, timberlogs, wells, fances, farms, farmlands etc. etc), but to be realistic I think this mod will be released sometime next year.
Here is a short video of me running through the forest (with night ambients), the boat the party arrives in is a placeholder, and this is ofcourse far from being done.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OI9dfGyDU_0&feature=youtu.be
