This post was approved a couple days later than it was posted, so everyone might not have noticed it. So just bringing it up!

On topic, that is one of the most realistic LGR's I've seen, althought irregularly shaped objects are bad for playing.

Wow sick work! Is there a possibility you will make this LGR with original APPLE FLOWER KILLER AND BIKES?
It's unplayable with current apples and flower.

I always loved realistic LGRs for the sole purpose of being awesome, even when the gameplay was a bit worse than with default.lgr. The trees look completely awesome, stones seem well tiled. The only thing I don't like that much is the bike and the objects (I guess I am too used to touching the flower). Killer seems to have too many thin spikes which seems a bit off when it is rotating.
But this is a great lgr overall. Well done iCS (and welcome to elma community)!

On the moposite there is still a part with downloadable LGRs. Could it be updated with the most recent lgrs and maybe even comments/ratings like it was done in good old times?

:D I'll work on it. Combinations are possible of course.
And I know there are still some errors in the LGR, I'm planning to fix them (for example, the brick texture is too bright and unpleasant for the eyes).
BTW the bike was the first thing I've replaced, because I disliked the original one. After that, I've replaced almost everything, because I was bored :lol:

iCS LGR v3.3

Post by iCS » 10 Jan 2016, 14:17

I made many fixes and improvements in this LGR. I think it looks much better now. (Known bug: doesn't work with 3X zoom, tree4 pic too big 8O ).

(I made two different versions, this one is with my design of bikes, apples, killer, exit.)

Also made a version with original bikes, apples, killer, flower (Bjenn-edition :lol: )

I would put arrows if Elma had official source files for gravity apples, like QFOODLeft.PCX, QFOODRight.PCX, etc., but it only has QFOOD1 to QFOOD9, so any numbers can be assigned to any directions...there's no strict rule for that, and it can be different in every LGR... I'm concerned about old levels which have apples with "random" food anim numbers or made with other LGR. False arrows would be extremely confusing.

By the way, iCS33.LGR has rotated apples for gravity,

but I don't always use them.

iCS, this (the bjenn edition) is actually the most beautiful lgr I have seen. Very grats and thanks for that.

Concerning the grav apples: "random" animations usually occur only in internals, where kuskis know how gravity is assigned. And usually lgrs don't have more than 2-3 apple animations. So if you assigned L,R,U,D to 6,7,8,9 respectively (just as in post above), it would be pretty convenient.

I don't think anyone would ever bother setting different animation numbers on gravity apples just because one lgr has got specially designed apples for gravity.

This is why I didnt edited my lgr. Ill see the arrows here, but others players with different lgrs not. So, its pointless, at least by now.

Well, how about all lgr makers decide on some sort of convention? Like which number is which arrow apple. Then it might spread and will be useful for many players.

Textcolor is a cool stuff! This is a working link: http://zzz.ink/elma/tools/textcolor.exe
I tried it with several settings, 0 (white) is somewhat better than the default yellow. But there's no perfect solution, because textures change during gameplay, and certain colors are perfectly visible over certain textures, but totally invisible over others.

Agreed.
And, as far as I can see, levmakers almost never use foodanim feature.

Anim numbers for grav arrows is a nice idea in theory, but it would be very hard to get people to adopt it, and even if they did, there would often be cases of people who don't know about teh setting an anim for no reason, having pipel die on it because they thought grav, and ofc getting angrey.
then again i don't know anything
maybe easier not to think abouut alöl things thought than not things thought ... or something..=?

Obviously not everyone would use them but it would be nice a nice way of making gravity areas less confusing in some bigger FF levels.

Suar, as long as you would nat rely on everyone having a LGR with those arrows, and mayke sure to indicate otherwise too.

Gravity arrow symbols should be handled independently of LGRs. A 'gravity mod' for Elma would be great. It would detect grav apples and mark them automatically with the proper arrow. Like in SpecialLevelEditor. Much more simple way than messing with foodanim... and it would work with ANY LGR and on ANY level.

Oh... I didn't even remember I'd customized those colours too... that must be a remnant of the version 1.0 of my lgr, which was made back in 2003 :DD
Maybe I'll restore it to the default colour scheme.

Okay, it is difficult to see the yellow in game texts because of the yellow part of the sky. So a version of a blue all the time sky is needed.

I'll update first post soon.

My v3.1 LGR has bad palette, and I sucked many hours correcting it. I had to convert pictures manually to indexed color with the correct palette. :x

I think this LGR is not exactly suitable for battling, or competitively playing whatsoever. It's value is in the artistic approach. Maybe a cup level would be good if you designed it with this LGR in mind.
Most people (TL, I'm looking at you) don't give a shit about graphics/pictures/grass in battle levels, so yes, it can look depressive.

I made lgr with grav arrows. Here http://mopolauta.moposite.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9271
And I established anim to grav standard i my topic. IMO i was first so my standard is an official one :) Just dl lgr and while making lev set defgrav.lgr as lgr related to lev. Ofc don't forget to set apple anims :D
