[done] tilesets should set shadow intensity ?
« on: 19 September 2013, 22:22:33 »
As I made many tilesets now I saw that the shadows of objects and units look very different in the tilesets. On dark grounds you often don't really see the shadows at all.
Thats why I am asking if it is a good idea to make the shadow intensity settable in the tilesets ?

Sounds like a good idea (if not super urgent) to me.

Of course things will look differently on different graphics chipsets, monitors and with different gamma settings, too.

Or maybe just in options menu? Personally I like the darker shadows better, (especially now that we can do 1024 resolution).

You can set shadow intensity for the whole game already.
