dwarf cave terrain

Post by -wight- » December 22nd, 2005, 8:49 am


hello
i was just making some maps and found that theres no alternative to the cave terrain when your underground. so i thought someone who can do pixel art could make a sort of more clean cut under ground hall sort of terrain that better suits the dwarfs.

Yeah, that'd be sweet. We're all busy as hell making other new things, however, and don't have time to make that right now. If someone else wants to try, be my guest.

Also, given the content of this topic, I'm going to exercise my moderator powers and toss it over to the ideas section, where it is more appropriate.

That would be great! There could be dwarven cave road, like dirty cobblestones. Some sort of forest has come up in the past, and that could be good. I think glowing cave walls would be nice too.

i was thinking there could be new houses that look like they have been carved out of single block of rock, i like the round ones for inside caves but i dont think it would suit this terrain.
one last thing, it should have a more square geometry to the structures and should be made with alot lighter gray/brown than the cave terrain to make it have a more lawful/neutral look.

Jetryl has added this dwarven village to the trunk. IMO it's pretty sweet.

Currently the engine can't support any more terrain types. It will take some time to change that. Otherwise the devs generally agree that caves are too barren graphicly and strategicly. When we can, more underground terrains will be added.

I like this house :)

But I think that current "dwarf" house is also good, so, I think that this two houses should be included in wesnoth.


But it is just an opinion :)

The cave villages are still there. The old dwarven village is removed though.
