Lemmings Plus Graphic set redesign thread
« on: October 02, 2017, 05:23:19 am »
So while I wait for the new format, I decided to try something new
Redesigning LPII & LPIII graphic sets
So far I did Tree
Before

After


I have plans for what to do with the Psychedelic set, my idea is Neon florescent Rave party
I may or may not do redesigns of the Cheapo sets

Credit to plom for helping me with some of the set pieces
edit: as of today, all the LPII sets are remastered, they're all in the folder below

Looks great! Though I kinda still like both... is it possible to just name the style file differently and use both as seperate styles? Or are there references somewhere in the file that specifically require it to be named "tree.dat"? ;)

Excellent job on this GigaLem! I do agree with Strato though, you should probably call this tileset something different, because I do still enjoy the brown tree trunks as well as the birch wood ones.

Very nice GigaLem :thumbsup: I especially like the background of it and the detail that went into the trees, but like everyone else said the only thing I would change is the name of it so that the file doesn't accidentally conflict with levels that reference tree.dat or so that the file doesn't accidentally overwrite it. Maybe gigalem_tree_md.dat (md for modification) or gigalem_tree_remake.dat.

I don't know about you guys, but I tend to end up combining different tilesets anyway when I want to design good looking trees - a bit from the old Tree tileset, though the resolution is pretty low on that one, usually some of the Medieval L2-trees, and occasionally the big tree from the Beast II-tileset. Why not just add these new ones to the "collection"? :D

Btw, afaik there is no Beast I tileset yet, or did I just not find it? ;)

I'll adress this, I named it "tree" for those who didn't want to rebuild a level from scratch, I guess you if want to use both, you're free to name it "gigalem_tree" or "tree_remake"

No, please don't go this way. Any style should have a unique name, because if everyone has to guess which name the level designer used for the style, then noone will ever be able to play a level using this style. So please, please rename your style to "gigalem_tree" and only ever use the renamed one in levels.
In the new-formats version, it will be called "gigalem_tree" anyway. :P

But it's a great style. I especially like the leaves and the steel! :thumbsup:

Would it be possible to have an automatic conversion feature in the editor, for this and other pairs of styles with the same terrain shapes? The Genesis Dirt syle immediately comes to mind.

:thumbsup: Very nice! Can't wait to see what else you come up with for the other styles.

I believe new-formats is text based, so I imagine you could use a find and replace operation to take care of this until (if ever) one is added.

Thanks a lot! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

There is no such feature, and I don't plan to add one. The reason is, that such a feature would only be useful for very few pairs of styles, as they need to have pieces that are named exactly the same.
But as Dullstar correctly noticed, opening the file in a text editor and running a "Replace All" will do exactly what you want.

I'll be attaching a new graphic set to the first post after this one.

A friend of mine (Plom510) Created this redesign or Psychedelic

Before


After


Now its Neon! I'll be doing Metal next, which I'm thinking will be made into a freight storage area
but I'm also gonna set up a poll after this for the purple redesign.

Like it! It's slightly more matt, which makes it less strenuous on the eye than the original, very brighty and shiny version :) .
