Add shadows on the ground so my eyes do not keep on switching them from light from the right and the are convex and light from the left and they are convex. Also, the top pyramid is on the sidewalk a little.

Ok I figured that I would help add a little something besides just pixel art. I figure this should be fun for everyone. Here is Waldo, and Shakra I think you know what you need to do with him once there are enough hiding places.

Alright, so this is the first time I've really dabbled in pixel art, so I'm not trying to be creative. If anybody has any tips, let me know.

That being said, this was hella fun. Here's a 24-bit PNG.

I'm going to do several different types of tiles, depending on how Shakra want's to do them. I'm definately doing the reverse of my first tile and (hopefully) 4 90 degree turn tiles, 4 different station buildings, and possibly a switching tile. Goons can make train cars if they want, and we can string together Goon Train, to go in our Goon Town, and it will obviously make a stop at Goon Tower and Goon Base.

Can I get some opinions on that idea, so I know how long to make my work list?

If you make a blank train car so that people can see the dimensions to aim for then people can start the side project goontrain. I would guess that we will not need too many, but we shall see how large this city grows...

Here is my work in progress. I am having some difficulties in adding pipes that look quite right among the ground. Also, I am aware the fence is a little off on the bottom left.

Ok. I think I am done. If someone sees something that should be fixed or added I will do so, but until then I think I am done. Also, there were going to be some shadows going against the spheres, such as the double pipes, but god drat making a shadow go over a sphere is hard to do. My brain just does not work that way.


Edit: poo poo! Just missed the update. Ah well. I think this would fit best near the powerstation next to the portal bridge.

After looking at this I am pretty sure that I will be printing this out to be a poster/s once when this is done. At what DPI would I be looking at for this sort of thing. I would think that 300 would shrink it down too much, but then again I only have so much room on my wall.

Shakra how much was the print that you did, and did you just do it at Kinko's or something? I figure I should start to look for prices to see how much I should set aside on my meager college budget, and unlike you I do not have a wife who would complain if I hung it up, which I will.

Also, my next project is an adult bookstore because someone suggested that a number of pages ago and I have not seen it happen. That or a strip club. We need more sleaze in Goon city.

Edit: I want GTA:Goon City.

Are we under martial law or something? gently caress that. I think that people need to make a riot to help throw off the oppressive military in Goon city. I say we riot under the slogan "Molotovs for peace."

I will throw together some riot tiles to have something for the military to have to control in the next few days. Anyone else is welcome to join. All I am going to do is some street tiles, and maybe a building on fire with smashed windows etc.

I think that we need a new pixel art project. I mean this was absolutely loving amazing, but ideas dry up and people loss interest. We have had Goon Base, Goon Tower, and now Goon City. Hell Goon Tower was the reason I finally paid for SA. I think that a new idea should be in the works. Maybe we could do more theme oriented threads so to keep the variety something like Goon Moonbase, Goon Warzone, Goon Spacestation, or Goon Train. I would be fine with another Goon City. A fresh start would be nice. Regardless, I just want another rather active thread to start up.

What the gently caress? Is my goon train idea actually taking off?

Well...ALL ABOARD!

Ok so who wants to shoulder this one. I personally would be willing to help construct the train and put it together, but I am far too busy to actually take the majority of it. Also, we need the base design of the cars along with the track and starting scenery. I am guessing that we are going with isometric again? If so then the picture is going to end up being like so...
\..........
..\........
....\......
......\....
........\..

unless we plan on making a twisting and turning train which is what to me seems like the best option. One last thing that I have notice from Goon Tower and Goon City we really should set down the basics for shadows so that they go in the same general direction.

I think it makes a great compromise between 2D and isometric. Cut-away views to the inside of the cars should be pretty simple to do in this style as well.

I like the cut of your jib and would like to subscribe to your newsletter. That is actually a great compromise.
