Screenshots Cont.

Some tips for you:

  • Turn up visibility range to the max (unless you have a good artistic reason not to). Don’t snap immediately, you’ll need to wait a while after spawning before the game loads all the terrain around up to the horizon.
  • Do not write anything on the screenshots, crop them or otherwise modify!
  • Take a few screenshots of a scene in quick succession and later select the best one.
  • The UI will be invisible, but whatever the player holds in his hand will. Make him hold interesting stuff, like bow, crossbow, musket, axe, a wood block, etc.
  • You can do screenshots of builds or use custom texture packs, but don’t overdo it.
  • Theme your photos. A mix of everything and a kitchen sink, painted in random colors is not as good as matching stuff. For example a moose in the snow, with big trees around and player aiming at it with a bow sounds good.
  • Take pictures of the player using orbit camera – pick your clothes carefully to match the scene.

Keep going!

Btw. you don’t need to rush, I want to give other platforms a chance too so there is plenty of time.

      This one still has a pretty good chance, even if he doesn’t accept the edited one.

      Why would you edit it. Thats false to show possible customers a fake picture.

          But why lie? Do you want to lie to Kaalus’ customers? No. You dont.

          Its not me liying its me making art I don’t expect to advertise using false pictures… I expect people to look at my art…. Not just to see something fancy but to see and feal the mood… Understand the meaning of it… With dull colors shown in the unedited version you don’t have this connection with the art… You see this fake reality as it is seen in the game…. My goal is not to show what something is but to give life to the seemingly dead scene…..
          You see this very well in the art….
          In the good version you not only see what is going on “a man morning over the death of a friend” but you feel the meaning of it… Death is a part of life… Though it’s sad it can be a very beautiful thing…..
          That is the statement I tried to show you….
          Ever heard the term “a picture is worth a thousand words”?
          This is something that I take to heart…. Sometimes you nead to look past the pixels on your screen and into the meaning behind them….

        I couldnt do 256 vis range because because my tablet has 444mb of ram… It struggles on 96 after 1.29 :(

        Also my tablet has bad resolution – will this affect the screenshots even though i took the pic with full hd? It definately had affect before 1.29.

    Bug Report or Weak Items???
    Did you hear about the musket only firing 41 shots and then breaking apart?
    Is that supposed to happen?

      Does adding a 1024×1024 texture pack make the game lag more? Does anyone know?

      • Posted January 17, 2016 at 05:48 | Permalink | Reply

        I think Kaalus mentioned a while ago that it could slow it down, slightly but that using a low res one will not speed it up.

        • Posted January 17, 2016 at 07:05 | Permalink

          Yes, a lower-res texture pack WILL increase performance. And yes, a higher-res will decrease performance.

    I worked very hard on these. I hope you see them, and enjoy them, because I know I do :) I am sorry if it’s just a link, but I think it will be worth your time… after all weeks of work has gone into these builds, and I don’t want it to be for nothing [IMG]http://i63.tinypic.com/2lj6koz.jpg[/IMG]
