yo pterodaktill, i like it.

a bit of a problem, imho, is that the background and map itself are pretty much the same color. you should make the background more... background, so that players don't get confused.

also, the "HedgeCola" label should be either be removed or made to look like it's really on the cup.

just my 2¢ though Wink Smiley

Very nice, I like it.
I can also see the map being used for some sort of mission.

Well... I decided to make the map and the theme open source. I published it under CC-BY-SA license. The download link is at the first post. I hope someone would improve it. Good luck

TL;DR:
I've created an updated version of the FastFood theme based on the theme version 0.7.9 which works with Hedgewars version 0.9.17. It can be downloaded here:
http://hh.unit22.org/media/addons/FastFood0.8.zip (just the theme files)
or here:
http://rghost.net/download/38930882/d52df85d464a554eea3d36692bd7996d1eecfcf0/FastFood_0.8.tar.xz (contains SVG files, too)

The entire blabla:
You made a good map and an even more awesome theme. Probably one of the most overlooked themes in Hedgewars. I wonder why no developer has stumpled upon this in all these years. It looks awesome and complies with the Hedgewars Grahpics standard.

Big image here:

(The screenshot is actually a screenshot from my edited version, not the original anymore.
But you hardly can see any difference as the improvements are mainly technical ones.)

Unfortunately, this theme is a bit outdated for version 0.9.17, because so many things changed. And there are some other issues with this theme. Here's a list:

  1. The horizont stuff has a very awful white border, it is clearly visible on the dark background; it looks like the shape has been just "cut off" and this just fucks up the entire background
  2. The horizont.png is very large at 2048×1024 px. The theme guide suggests, if you have a horizont.png that is larger than 1024×1024 px you should provide a low resolution version which is not larger than 1024×1024 px, called horizont-lowres.png. The guide said that the low resoltution file may be used for
  3. The horizont.svg file uses some proprietiary or strange fonts:
    1. The text "Mustard" uses the font Dingbats: WTF? How did you even manage to render this with THAT font?
    2. "Mayonnaise" uses Betina Script: proprietiary font which is sold for 30$. Really!
    3. "Ketchup" uses Bitstream Vera Sans. free, OK.
    4. "HedgeCola" uses Purisa: free, OK.
    5. "classic" uses Courier New: proprietiary Micro$oft font
    All fonts could be replaced by free fonts:
    1. Mustard: Bitstream Vera Sans (http://www-old.gnome.org/fonts/), keep size
    2. Mayonnaise: Breip Medium (found in several Linux distro repositories) @ 53.04 pt
    3. Ketchup: keep old font
    4. HedgeCola: keep old font
    5. classic: NotCourierSans (http://ospublish.constantvzw.org/foundry/notcouriersans/), keep size
  4. icon@2x.png is missing, you won't see a big preview image on 0.9.17
  5. Senseless file: Sky.png is just a 64×64 px PNGs which is transparent all over. There is no reason to keep this file here.
  6. There is a flakes.svg file with two images but the Flakes.png file is empty (transparent), so the FastFood theme has no flakes at all, although you drew two flakes. I wonder if this is intentional.
  7. The water splash animation is broken and ugly in version 0.9.17. Probably that's because you used a older Hedgewars version where the splash animation used a different grid size.
  8. There are no objects visible in version 0.9.17. Your theme uses an old theme.cfg format, Hedegwars 0.9.17 doesn't seem to intrepret the file correctly.
  9. The theme.cfg refers to city.ogg, but there is not city.ogg, but there's a City.ogg. Please keep in mind that there are Hedgewars players who use case-sensitive operating systems, so this is an issue.
And guess what? I fixed ALL of the issues above:
  1. I re-rendered the SVG horizont and created a horizont without this unclean border
  2. I created a file named horizont-lowres.png, which is 815×419 px large at 89 KiB. For comparison: horizont.png is 2048×1024 px with 200 KiB.
  3. I replaced the fonts with those I suggested myself above. The only text that really looks different now is the Mayonnaise text.
  4. I added icon@2x.png.
  5. I deleted Sky.png.
  6. I used the SVG file to render the flakes as PNG file, replaced the old pointless file. Now the flakes are rendered.
  7. I fixed the water splash animation.
  8. I converted the theme.cfg into the new theme.cfg format.
  9. city.ogg -> City.ogg
Here are the download links:
(Version: 0.8)
If one of the links is dead, please contact me immediately.

There's an Hedgewars Addons page at http://hh.unit22.org
You can upload this theme a that page and then anyone can rate and download it.
And i should say that you made a GOOD JOB with this theme updating it. Congrats on this Smile

Uploaded it on that hh.unit22.org server. Renamed version number to 0.8.
Clicky-clicky: http://hh.unit22.org/addon/108
The fucking FAQ told me I should append the version number but it didn't get removed from the name at all. So there the theme is now called "FastFood0.8" instead of "FastFood". If you download it from rghost.net the theme is called "FastFood" but if you download it from hh.unit22.org it's called "FastFood0.8" thanks to a confusing FAQ entry. Sleepy Smiley

At least I have now a real alternative to one-click-hosters, thanks.

That's exactly how it is supposed to work. The FAQ is not wrong.
Essentially, the reason a version number is requested in the name, is that if you make further changes to the theme, it can desync games.
Content that is part of the full game is updated each version, and version is enforced across the entire game. You can't do that for DLC.
So, putting a version number in the name ensures that if you decide to fix a theme object in FastFood0.9 that people won't try playing it with FastFood0.8 and get broken play.

It also ensures that if FastFood gets accepted, we don't have to pick a completely different name to avoid it colliding with versions people are playing already. Unfortunately, because you already released it without a version number once, we would have to pick another name.

Okay.

I have packaged McHedgehog (the fast food map) into HWP format, here you can download it:

http://holzgolz23.byethost13.com/games/hedgewars/maps/McHedgehog_v1.hwp

Simply drop the HWP file into the directory “Data” of your Hedgewars data directory ($HOME/.hedgewars under GNU/Linux). You will find the map as “McHedgehog_v1” in the game.

This map uses FastFood0.8 by default, found here: http://hh.unit22.org/addons/Theme/FastFood0.8/

Besides: FastFood0.8 works just fine. I have decided to keep this name until I make a update to it.

The map is not uploaded on hh.unit22.org yet, this upload interface simply does not work for me. Sad Smiley

IMO, both FastFood0.8 and McHedgehog_v1 are both good enough to be included as DLC at least. Maybe even bundled with the game *dream*. What do you think?

Preview of McHedgehog_v1:

Preview of FastFood0.8:

I have also uploaded the SVG source of the map on my server in order to preserve it:
http://holzgolz23.byethost13.com/games/hedgewars/sources/McHedgehog_map.svg

Edit: Map is now on hh.unit22.org: http://hh.unit22.org/addons/Map/McHedgehog_v1/

This is a good theme/map to be included into the DLC.
