Go with darker Q underground rock, or go with lighter original underground rock?

A change of texture or revert? (Mines & Caverns tileset)

Post by The Amethyst Dragon on Wed May 28, 2014 11:51 pm

Hello, all.

So, I recently downloaded Project Q version 1.8, then ran the "1.9 live updater" which means I now have the latest version on my hard drive (Q 2.0!).  A couple nights ago I went to make a minor edit to some underdark areas and discovered that much of the (mines and caverns) tileset has taken on a darker look.

I don't mind the new look (especially after I made a minor tweak to some walls), but what does everyone else think?

If you don't have the newer version yet, please download it because I will eventually merge their new stuff into Aenea (and save myself a little hak space since they do include some of my works now).  If you do have it, you can probably see the newer textures by going to the goblin caves or pretty much any other "underground" area.

And now, for those that have seen the darker texture (it may only be showing on the ceilings, floors, and water)...Do you think we should go with the newer darker color stone, or should I get it to revert to the default NWN lighter textures?

Poll will be open for 7 days.

I like the dark version much more. More immersion is always nice. Its just that some of the shield icons no longer display right after the last update, along with the jump* item that everyone gets.

Well, the deepcopper mines look spectacular, and the underdark feels darker, so all in all, I would say keep the new look!

Keep.

Personally I prefer Chico's NWNCQ caves, but either Q or CQ's caves are better than the bright happy default cave tilesets.
