Lickable theme right there Big Grin

Really nice theme to look at, good job. (I personally like the candy-cane girder/bridges a lot.)

Personal nitpick: The LandTex.png (I think?) would be better off without those oreos/cookies, it spoils the look of the rest of the cake texture in my opinion.

Having them replaced with something that fits in more with the rest of the texture might also fix that.

Ugh, Google Drive. I hate it if I have to activate a shitton of JavaScripts just for a simple download. I prefer simple websites over complex ones. Whatever, I downloaded it anyways.

Okay, about the package:

You shouldn’t put unused files like these into HWP files:

  • file “theme.cfg~” (useless)
  • directory “SVG's” (sic!) and contents
  • directory “CMakeFiles” and contents (WTF?)

It’s nice that you provide source files, but I would package them in a seperate (non-HWP) archive.

You should definitely consider uploading the cleaned HWP file to hh.unit22.org, it makes many things easier.

About the theme itself, I mostly repeat suggestions I gave you earlier:

  • There should be definitely more Sudden Death customization, esp. clouds and water. The defaults look pretty ugly with this theme. Maybe black like licorice? Wink Smiley
  • There are nice large objects, but there are no small ones. I think one more small land object can’t hurt. I’d suggest licorice.
  • A horizont layer would be nice. Maybe some cupcake like in Cake theme? Or whatever you come up with
  • I would like to see Dust.png provided. Maybe a simple recolor of the default image to pink would be enough.

But overall, I already like this theme.

Edit for Nexia: It is not LandTex.png exactly, it’s the sprays which are put on the land texture. Documentation of theme files can be found here.

Ah, I see. I knew I was missing something.

And I agree with the suggestion for adding one more small land object, it could indeed use one IMO too.

I'll think about another spray. Thanks for your suggestions.

You're right about this.

I will work on something for the SD.

About small object I was thinking on make a smaller cherry. But your idea is good too.

I want to say I won't be able to work on this theme for one month, but I'll keep reading this post and listening more suggestions. Thanks.

Congratulations, this theme made it into Hedgewars 0.9.21 as “Cake”. This theme is used for the map “Cake”.

Nemo applied a few changes to it.

The horizont features the cupcakes from the old Cake theme. The water is pink, as in the old Cake theme, but the Sudden Death water is brown, as in your Candy theme.

Maybe I post screenshots later.
