My sixth map to date.

Personal Review: 8.5/10 [Challenging]

Probably the closest to the hedgewars graphic style that I have made so far... Some aid from Tiyuri with suggestions! Thanks. Smile

The cake could sit, so legs would be horizontal Big Grin
And it misses a candle

Candle could potentially kill gameplay, but I'll make one anyway... Just with no flame xD

Add candles and do something about the background, the pink is horrible and clashes with the foreground colours, use an existing theme if you have to, but do something!

Heres what you need to do.

1. Change the water to cream, check underwater theme for how to do this.

2. Add "Sprinkles" falling in the background

3. use the texture from the cake "sponge" and make a terrain layer, just like the terrain layer from bath that you modified to make the cake.

4. Draw some map objects, you can reuse your cherries, and you can use the knife (angle it upwards, so its sticking downwards into the terrain), you could use candles too, or whatever else.

5. Modify the border of the terrain to be pink, like your cake iceing

6. Currently your cupcakes in the background are attached to the sky graphic, they should be on their own graphic horizont.png, this will make them move independantly of the sky, and give them depth.
Once you've done this, you can create even smaller, darker cupcakes and attach them to the sky.png, that way you will have cupcakes moving off into the distance, and as the player moves the camera,
the closer ones will actually LOOK closer because they move faster than the ones behind.

7. Hedgewars has a feature that allows theme makers to "randomly place" graphics on the actual terrain, the Hell theme uses this to randomly place small skulls on the red rocks.
Do the same with sprinkles, so the sponge is filled with something tastey looking

8. show me it, and if its done well i'll make a theme preview icon

Do all this and you can create not just a map, but a random generation theme, that we can include in the bug fix version coming out very soon
