Re: Crowdfunding : your thoughts?
This Atlas Shrugged notion that every man is an island and must be an individualist is very ANTI-traditional.

Do you think that society as a general is still holding up to their traditional values?
I personally see single individuals more than complete societies. This is not an attempt to attack or criticise btw I am just curious about what you think because you are really standing with your opinion and seem to "got it" at life. At least that's what I'm thinking.

Did you really find a decent amount of people that hold similar or the same values as you? Are you really able to live with your values with a society or rather just singled out in a society that is different from your values?

I think this is one of the biggest reasons for traditional persons to be individualists. Most people nowadays think that the "Simple is better" is just there to keep people where they are. And people who actually think that way are singled out. Therefore, almost "forced" to be individualists. Of course there are exceptions but that's what I think at least, just wanted to put it out there.

Re: modding trees - tree painters needed Nice drawings @Buoidda especially the juniper it looks fantastic. I think the shape looks way better than my version.

For the Elm tree because you used the linden leaves, I used very bright colors while I was drawing its leaves. So the elm tree's leaves suddenly change colors on the bottom and upper areas. I downloaded the elm tree so I can help you with recoloring of it.

If you need any other stuff or graphics done I'd be happy to help. It was very fun to draw the trees as I'm not really a pixel artist it was a fun challenge to stick faithful to the original drawings and create new trees and while I was doing the elm tree it proved to be a very tough one. :o

If you would like to see my versions I can post them here. But it looks like you got the shapes quite nicely. We just need to adjust the leaves so that they don't use 2 different colour palettes. My elm looks very different than yours and I don't think I got the shape as good as yours. But it is a cool tree graphics anyways ;D ;D

Re: modding trees - tree painters needed Ok I see your issues about those, here is my mediocre at best trees :P

Spoiler: show

I still think that this is an okayish tree drawing, but I was not too sure about the shape of the tree. As I was trying to show that the leaves are scarce and you can see through it a little bit. I drew the branches through the tree. I guess it threw off the shape a little bit. But I am interested in what you think, maybe this is a great one for another tree idk ;D.

Spoiler: show

As much as this can be pleasant to look at, I don't think this shape really represents what you are trying to do with your mod. This looks too "gamey" so to say. But the dead version can be used if it is shaped accordingly to your drawing.

Bonus First Elm
Spoiler: show

As you see I did not format this accordingly as this was my first drawing of the elm tree. I used the dead birch tree tiles because I thought the shape looked similar at least. Again I tried to show that the leaves are not blocking everything and you can see through. I tried to draw the branches in this one too, at first it was very messy and I was not comfortable with it and I decided to leave this one after tidying it up.

Sadly, there is no dead elm that I drew because I was just able to start drawing after my final week. But after I saw that you drew the willow, elm and everything I decided there is no need to draw 2 different versions of trees and share my progressions. I hope they are useful to you, I already downloaded your versions and I'll see what I can come up with. I already started recolouring your elm tree.

And one caution, I copied and pasted your images directly into the canvas and they were too blurry after that. If you want to get them at the best quality you should right click and then save as. ;D

Re: modding trees - tree painters needed
This is great! Only that the two ball-like branches steal the attention from the beautiful top. Kinda feels like it wants to hug me :D

Would it work as a rowan color-wise? It would become a good rowan, especially if one added couple of trunks on either side of the main trunk.
Hehe. The elm pictures I saw had branches going out everywhere and I decided to add some to mine as well. Nature gives back love too I guess ;D

As colour palette goes, I used the original tree tiles and created palettes from it so it shouldn't be too far away from the original drawings anyway. Upon checkings the photos we might wanna use just tiny bit darker colours as in the photos the green looks quite dark in kotipihlaja results. It may as well be the pose and lighting but it wouldn't hurt to darken the colours just a little. We can make the tree very wide or narrow the main trunk and add trunks of similar width. It is a very lovely tree too how I did not see it before the red berries look awesome :o

Alas, for the literally dead version I have no use. Juniper is a conifer so it's evergreen. Sorry for not bringing it up.
Ah I see, I knew the juniper was an evergreen. I thought that you may need a completely dead version. I forgot that those are supposed to be winter versions. :P

Also a fine tree. Let's see what use I come up with it. You don't have to worry about duplicating / formatting it for me. Single tree graphic / winter version for decidous ones are more than enough.

The style reminds of my willow shrub. Would the color scheme fit goat willow?

I just looked at the image and the colours seem quite close. This palette is shamelessly ripped from the birch trees :D so it would be a solid choice to draw most of the trees' leaves I would say, as far as pixel art goes, you need some contrasting colours to emphasize the shape of the trees.

A quick tip about the colour choices, after searching for some time, I stumbled upon a program called "Aseprite". You can get it on steam or you can compile it from its github page. I've read that compiling is a little bit annoying. But the best part is whenever I open up a drawing, photo or whatever it immediately creates the colours that are used in the drawing. This at the start of any drawing is extremely helpful and helps out visualising the overall hue of the drawing. It is a pixel art dedicated program and has some tools that are quite useful. You'll have to learn some shortcuts though to work faster.

Certainly. Look forward to see further work!

That is so good to hear, I'll definitely try to draw some more taking your issues into account.

Re: modding trees - tree painters needed Elm tree recoloured. The added trees on top of each other should look a lot more balanced.

Re: Ancient Savo : A new Enormous Elk game in the making Nice! Because of the exchange rates and the fact that paypal is not working in my beautiful country ::), I probably won't be able to donate but I'll definitely look forward to its release and there is a high chance that I'll buy it. :)

Good luck with the game and development I hope it all goes well and easy for you.

Re: Best music to listen while playing UrW I really like listening to drone metal, stuff like Sunn O))), Boris, Earth are really cool but it is not for everyone I guess.

Burzum makes really good ambient music as well, if you liked the newer albums I can definitely suggest Alcest,it is not really a pagan-folk group, but it is a popular group you might have heard of it. Amesoeurs makes a little softer music but I think they are great as well.Les Discrets are similar to Amesoeurs as well. That was a lot of French bands for someone who is not from France. ;D

Woods of Ypres really has some bangers as well "I Was Buried In Mount Pleasant Cemetery" and "Traveling Alone" are my favourites.

One Finnish group that I'm listening is called Tenhi, I don't really understand the lyrics but they are really nice songs slow, soft. My favourite is "Pojan Kiiski" I think the song is about a boy and his fish but I dunno, it is cool though.

Not every song in my playlist is my favourite best amazing song of all time ofc, my playlist mostly consists of ambient, blackgaze, ds black metal. Other than that I really like John Frusciante's solo work, like all of them. With his other group Ataxia, alternative rock, really cool songs there.

In order for me to listen any music, it needs a distorted or overdriven guitar and that's pretty much all it needs. :P

Re: Noob Questions
These questions have already been answered six years ago in Reddit. I'm afraid I have to judge the OP to have some spammy intentions.

Damn, I was just about to write my thesis about how to start off with the game :'( :'(
