It's apparently a PC exclusive, but who knows whether that will affect the game's design or not. Regardless, Firaxis assuredly know how to make a PC-ass PC game.

Try Xenonauts, you won't be disappointed.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) at 6/1/2015 12:43:00 PM

Scenario sounds just like Dreamland Chronicles: Freedom Ridge/UFO: Aftermath.

Unfourtunately it'll certainly be the same dumbed-down, linear console game as the previous one.

CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) at 6/1/2015 9:25:00 AM

Awesome! Not a big fan of the snakeman. The original snakeman was a lot more alien looking. And I have no idea why that dude just pulled a sword in a gunfight. And a new TFTD would have been epic, that was by far the scariest of the X-Com games. But this new idea seems good too. The roles have been reversed. Very creative.


user
Zizka (Level 9 Federal Agent) at 6/1/2015 9:18:00 AM

I never felt that TFTD was a worthy successor of the first X-Com. The idea was daring but it wasn't executed as well as it could have been. I liked the environment but the weapons were sort of *meh* for me. Those crab guys were impossible to take down too! :)


user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) at 6/1/2015 9:10:00 AM

Yesss :D I'm disappointed that it's not a reimagining of TFTD though.

It wasn't added yet :p
Can't add the 4x4 run cycle because it does not meet the rules of trans and 16x16 speite...its so awesome tho.

Watched Kung Fury, still a joy to watch.

Still need to play the game.


user
Paddy (Level 2 Hired Gun) at 5/30/2015 10:15:00 AM

@Meapers his name better be Fergus, he looks so much like a Fergus

also speaking of Kung Fury, there's a tie in game that features some retro pixelly stuffs


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 5/30/2015 7:19:00 AM

In all Fireworks files there is extra metadata included in the files and that's what bumps them up in size. All files get metadata of some kind, btw. gifs get very little metadata. Go to the links section and get something like 'giffy' if you need. If you have Photoshop then open in that and 'save for web'. I don't remember now because I hardly use Fireworks much but it shoul also have a 'save for web' option, check for it.


user
AKA_Mathieu (Level 1 Intern) at 5/30/2015 5:54:00 AM

Thks for the answer Jalonso.


I guess there is something I don't understand with adobe fireworks, because I took a preview from the gallery (9,5Ko), I opened it with fireworks then I saved it .... 148Ko -.-'

Does anyone know an easier software for gifs?


user
Mandrill (Level 7 General Manager) at 5/30/2015 4:07:00 AM

Yep, I have. It's insanely good.

*Fireworks loves to add metadata...never good :(

 


user
AKA_Mathieu (Level 1 Intern) at 5/29/2015 1:31:00 PM

How can a preview like that only be 9,5k?

I was going mad with adobe fireworks for a ten frames preview and it was like 150k.

How can you do that?

please T.T  (<- pixel art)

I think making a post on tigsource devlog forum is great! Apart from twitter it seems like the best place to keep a preview of a game in the making.

@others: Which websites are the best to promote an indie game besides twitter and indy db (which is not doing much for me to be honest).

user
Bitslap (Level 6 Manager) at 5/28/2015 3:36:00 AM

The first gif is the basic block interaction. Destroy blocks vertically and ascend. This is an actual game that i am making before our local game developers meet up. 

Finlal, thanks for that but i see a lot of cool sprites already. The game might give me free sprites tho since i HAVE to draw and animate them.

I use Photoshop on mac every day at school, and I want to bash my skull in.

I absolutely loathe mac's interface and window management, and I think Photoshop is clunky and useless for anything other than actual photo editing. It's gotten to the point where I just don't do work on my project in class and just go home and work on it on my PC with GIMP.


user
Paddy (Level 2 Hired Gun) at 5/25/2015 9:58:00 AM

I literally only use Photoshop because i'm used to it, can't be bothered picking up other programs, attempted to use grafx2 but got confused by the interface and was like nope. 


user
Finlal (Level 6 SWAT) at 5/25/2015 9:56:00 AM

And for Mac - it's a nessesary thing for releasing games on mac and ios, for example.


user
Finlal (Level 6 SWAT) at 5/25/2015 9:54:00 AM

For some it might be a matter of habit.
I started pixelling with ps (because it was only editor I've heard of) and now it's pretty hard for me to move to Grafx2.
And I have a friend who started pixelling in ms paint (he didn't have internet back then so paint was only editor avalible) and don't use anything else. Even on windows 8 he downloaded xp version of paint.


user
DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) at 5/25/2015 9:52:00 AM

I own both a mac and a cheap windows laptop, and the UI on OSX is much better in my opinion. File managers are much neater, although maybe I'm just too used to macs. 


user
Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 5/25/2015 9:51:00 AM

Well... Why anyone would use a Mac is another thing that's beyond me.


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 5/25/2015 9:47:00 AM

It would not be beyond you if you only pixel on a Mac.


user
Zizka (Level 9 Federal Agent) at 5/25/2015 9:42:00 AM

Nice skull! I like pencil sketches. Nothing beats those. 


user
Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 5/25/2015 9:41:00 AM

Why anyone would use Photoshop for pixel art is still beyond me.
Is there any pros compared to tools made especially for pixel art, such as Grafx2 and ProMotion?
I can name hundreds of cons, but I can't think of any pros.


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 5/25/2015 9:39:00 AM

Ahhh! I get it now. That option is not a PS thing because you click the foreground/Bg color with one click in the tab, main palette or double clicking. They must assume you don't really need that as an option I guess. You can do this however:

Assign a keyboard shortcut to the Foreground Color Picker.
Go to Edit>Keyboard Shortcuts and select Tools in the Shortcuts For drop-down menu.
Scroll down until you see Foreground Color Picker and click on it.
Enter a letter to change the shortcut. (I reccommend J, because I am awesome)
If you choose a letter that’s already in use you can override by hitting the Accept button to make the change.


user
Siikikala (Level 1 Thug) at 5/25/2015 9:32:00 AM

I dono about getting it "locked" to the HUD, but you can press shift+alt+right click to have the color silder picky thing appear on the screen. I'm not sure this is what you meant, but i hope it helps.


user
DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) at 5/25/2015 9:32:00 AM

also as for non-pixel art I've done, this is the only one that's perhaps worth showing. I really need to start making other types of art for the college portfolio :|

the teeth are also not that smudgy/flat in real life. Just a bad scan.

Yeah pretty much what Eli is talking about, I seen it in a video I was looking at so I figured there was a way to do it though i've spent like 20 minutes googling stuff trying to find out how and have had no luck.


user
DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) at 5/25/2015 9:23:00 AM

I think Paddy means a window for palette indexing like ProMotion has. I've never seen that in photoshop before either. 


user
Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 5/25/2015 9:22:00 AM

I try to paint and draw as much as possible. I can't say that I mass produce art, but It's more than nothing (but still less than I actually wish I could manage...)

Here's something I've made with oil pastels: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14384691/konst/Dilemma_scaled.jpg.

And here's a design for 5,25"-floppydisk covers (it's still a thing in the c64 demoscene) that I've made: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14384691/konst/GPCover_Frost-2.png


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 5/25/2015 8:56:00 AM

Once you have the side windows as you want which I guess you nee to include 'colors' then use the 'workspace' option on the menu so that they are there as a preset.
I think you want to add the color slider tab. Are we talking about the same thing here
