New tourist attraction: Floating islands!

Must see if I can give them some shadow ...

Roboron

Tourists will be able to appreciate those weird floating trees!  :-X

Would be funny if there was a climate that looks like that and has a tourist attraction that's just a hole in the same shape. Or perhaps even in another pakset that looks similar enough.

Animated cursors are an interesting idea. Even a simple bobbing of a placement arrow could make the game look much nicer. An animation that's shown when the mouse is clicked could also be nice (or even just an alternate 'clicked' image - eg the saucer only shoots the ray while the mouse is pressed)

I think the floating island needs some more work. At least I want to add shadows for the trees and rocks on top. Also see if I can add a shadow below. I really miss a good tile cutting tool, TileCutter doesn't work properly on my computer.

It seems I cut my latest creation again, which is something I don't look forward to. I think it would look better on a round base, not the square one. But let me present, The Mandelbrot Mountain!

Thanks. There was a bit on the page that helped - while the Linux version of TileCutter fails for me, if I run the TileCutter 0.6.1 Windows version, I get usable cuttings. That is a great time saver.

So, here comes the Mandel Mountain with a round base!

One more fractal. Next will be to improve the desert isle.

But today, the Julia Ridge!

I've attached the paks in case someone wants to check them out in game. The Mandel Mountain only spawns high up in the mountains. Julia Ridge is temperate climate

The improved desert isle.

It looks almost like an upside-down mountain.

Looks like a remnant from my tests with TileCutter. In wich version did you find it? It's not been meant to be published, sorry for the mistake.
