I actually forgot to make a post about this! But my resource pack was finished on March 11, 2014. Exactly a year and one day later after I started working on it. And it started selling on March 20, 2014. I’m so happy to have finally finished it, and I’m really proud of it (as well as the trailer). I actually proposed to not set a high price for it (it could easily have been $45 due to all of the content), because I really want to encourage people to buy it, and not scare them away.
Anyways, Harvest Moon clones please, nao.
Buy it here.
I can’t make it a December release for my rural farm tiles. I’m so sad. It’s just so much work, and I keep overestimating myself! I just finished the male sprites, which already took a month, so doing the female sprites will take even longer … which means it’ll be 2014 by then.
Ah well, I guess I’ll be starting the new year with a new tileset then.
Moving out and getting shit done is taking forever, and it has eaten up my time by a lot. Been been pretty much busy for an entire month, and haven’t worked much on my tiles.
But I at least did finish the poster!
Now, hopefully when I settle in, I can work at godspeed.
Still working on it, but I swear I’ll never get done with the amount I still have left to do …
But at least, here’s a pretty screenshot:
The time system is up and running, changing tints as it nears sunset and so on.
I’ve been working on a bunch of action sprites for the main heroes, but it’s been driving me crazy, so I took a break from it and made a pretty Japanese bridge instead.
No, I haven’t been slacking off on my farm tiles – I’ve been working on it!
So here’s a quick map to show off some progress:
(it kinda looks like a game already)
The nature tiles are now all 100% done, as well as the custom HUD and time system. Unfortunately, I’m not done, I would say I’m halfway done 😦 it’s a lot of work I’m putting myself through, especially with the custom characterset.
I’m adding so much stuff to my Farm Tiles pack, I don’t think it’s right to call it a ‘Farm Tiles’ pack anymore.
You could theoretically just opt to buy my tiles instead of Luna’s Modern Tiles if you want to make a modern game, since I’ll have everything the Modern Tiles have, except even more. Of course, it’s a different art style, but it has a lot of content. Specifically it’ll include an all new sprite pack, and people love sprites.
It’ll have a lot of furniture for you to mess around with (I think 3 different furniture styles, plus one recolour. One of those styles is Japanese themed), not to mention the building-specific tiles such as a forge for a blacksmith, desks for a school classroom, or a mannequin for a tailor etc. You could simply create a life sim or dating sim with the pack, and you’d have everything you need (bar actual portraits for the characters).
Anyways, here’s a small sneak peek:
So I’ve decided to go ahead with adding sprites to my farm tiles.
And it’s coming along! I’m actually having fun creating outfits and hairstyles for them. Here’s a sneak peek of the different combinations:
And here are the sprites next to some furniture for comparison:
I am definitely happy I decided to scrap my previous crop tiles and basically start over, I’m really enjoying this style a lot more!
