Map Requests / Map remake...
« on: March 25, 2011, 10:33:52 am »
Hi everyone,
I really love the maps you did, all these great treasures, but there's one little problem i cant really understand :(

Why putting layers together in a map? These maps would be more useful if the layers would be separate and the one using it would put them together, for the following reasons:
-The maps can't be animated, normalle you would set up the front layer and bg layer to move separately to make it look nice, but that can't be done when layers are put together. It's easier to put them together then separating them
-When you make a map, sometimes you want to modify them, to make it somehow unique, but that's almost impossible when you have the layers in one.
-Skipping through backgrounds and foregrounds, what about floing water, volcano, what could you do about those?

It's nice to look at them and bring back memories when you were walking on those familiar terrains, but i don't think that should be the main reason of a bg, i think the main reason should be to help developers make things with them, for ex. Games, Animations, etc. But that's impossible when you have everything put together :(

See the following examples:

See how everything's separate in the good ones? and there are no enemies inside, those can be put in from spritesheets and you can get the complete image

I posted this in the request section because i would really need some backgrounds if possible, they are already made, but i can't use them :(
These ones are:

I cant use them, because i would like to make some modifications to the maps and would like to add slowly moving bg.

I would be very grateful if anyone would be willing to make them.
Thanks in advance
