Traditional Roguelikes (Turn-based) / Re: Castlevaniarl tiles
« on: March 17, 2008, 08:06:41 PM »
I'm compiling a list of free tile sets.

Who is Barrett? A graphic designer you hired? Or was it a volunteer job, like Gervais' tiles?

Are the tiles used in castlevaniarl original work? Are they public domain? Can they be reused in other games?

We have 5(?) finished 7drl's already.
My bet is another 5 will finish during the challenge itself, putting us at a respectable 10 new games :)

Also, I've been playing roguelikes for years, and I've NEVER heard a player complain about circular vision.

I have :)

But then again, both the fov and time are quite constraint in cryptrover, so being able to see more is more critical than in a lot of rl's.

Does it a difference whether i break at ( (dx*dx)+(dy*dy) > 100) or (abs(dx)>10 or abs(dy)>10) ?

Yes - in the first case you stop much earlier in the diagonal directions.

I use octagonal fov.

Why not radial then? As far as I can see the two have exactly the same disadvantages.

I currently use radial fov in cryptrover, but am thinking about changing it.

Radial looks nicer, but causes all kinds on annoyances because it doesn't reveal the 'edges'.
Logically it also makes less sense, since diagonal movement in the game is not more expensive than straight movement.

Which do you think is better?

Anyone interested in joining us?
