I would recommend merging this topic with the berrymapper topic, because, doing this mod on your own would take a HELL of a lot of time, I already merged my topic with it and also- the more people on-board the better I feel like more people refer to that topic, and I think releasing packs when we have ALL of the areas/characters textured might be the better option.. Considering we are in the alpha, nearing beta stages!
Good work with the world textures though! Keep it up I don't have access to my main PC at the moment so I can't be any help with the textures until I come home again, you should really get in touch with Crestian/Shunsq/Mago and other artists and collab together to work on the project rather than tackle it on your own, as much as you'd get all the credit n' all! It would just be beneficial/save a lot of time in the process
Thanks! I originally considered posting this in the berry mapper thread but that thread is now flooded with several projects... so I made one just for the world textures and posted there about this thread. I agree with you on the point of working together so please contribute whatever you can! Everyone will get credit where it is due
That brings up a great point. The towns are going to be my last step in each area, so if any of you would like to contribute, that would be a great step forward!
I think this post would do nicely as a focused thread that can deal with its own troubleshooting etc as it progresses. I've already done more than half of the world landscape textures and hashing all on my own in a week so i know a finished 'product' isn't far away. we just have to figure out how to prevent he game animations from lagging so hard now... and I think I have a fix for the texture swapping.
I feel like each main project should have its own release page until more of them are completed, and then we put everything together. If someone is working diligently on Battle Fields, Summons, or Magics, I feel that there should be a place for them to focus on the project, but they should probably go in the 'graphical mods' section for now. I posted this in the 'releases' thread because it is just that -- an 'alpha' 1.0 release.
I feel like the Tonberry Mods, once fully realized, should be given an installer platform so that the FF8 fans can pick their mods - and I really feel like we should all be working together towards the goal of having an easy to install, easy to enjoy mod package for all.
