    First, NO DISRESPECT AT ALL to Geti. The pixel art is absolutely beautiful.. I'm in love with it.

    I just wanted the colours to pop out more - more like NES colours.. so all I did for the sprites was simply increase colour saturation to 115%. (Tiles are also in the sprite folder) The gold was a more meticulous job, but it pops out very nice. Since Geti said in another thread that a possibility might be to add a glow to the gold, this kind of gives it a glowing look.. for now.. for those that use this.

    Here's some screens:



    Here's the modded sprites folder:


    The sprites folder located in KAG/Base.

    Also, Geti, if you're not ok with this, feel free to delete this thread. I'm an artist myself, so I know what it feels like to have someone mess with the look. I'm not in anyway *intending* to detract from what you want it to look like.

    It's fine, as long as its very clearly not presented as my work I'm fine with edit mods and the like, as well as full blown TCs if you're game. We're hoping to increase the clarity of the sprites (especially the tiles) over the coming while as we look into other ways of shading the terrain, potentially leading to a line-of-sight system for rendering.

    However, I digress. This is a fine mod and a fine solution to your particular problem :)

    Oh, also, it's good to hear that you're liking the art.

    ...We might need to set up a mods subforum at some point, and provide official support for loading actor sprites per-team etc to prevent people from fishing around in the folders too much.

    Looks good, but unlike most people I don't seem to have a problem telling gold apart from dirt.

    Thanks Geti,

    I figured you would be ok with it, but it's always best to make sure. I'm glad you like it. And, yes, your pixel art is very nice and perfect for this game.

    Hi admins, can this be moved to texture packs please and thank you? :)

    I'll update this for Build 51 shortly.

    It would be relatively easy to make a postprocessing shader that would do that effect. I might do that if I find a little time.
    The shader could also make old TV scanlines and reduce the palette to a NES one!

    As long as I can increase the saturation of the colours to 115% (which makes it look like NES colours and the colours pop out more) and that the gold is nice and yellow and pops out.

    Uploaded Build 51 Sprites folder. I decided to keep the old gold tiles though. I find they look better than the new ones. Enjoy
