Notice: This is the first post in a sticky topic, and will repeat on every page.
I'd like to start a game, if you will, revolving around the creation of tilesets, so we may have more lovely tilesets to use in our levels.

The premise of this game is simple.  A tileset is introduced with the first eight squares filled.  from there, each person who plays needs to fill in another eight squares of the tileset (no more, no less) based on the previously filled spaces, until the tileset is completed.  Upon completion, the last player gives it a name, and another tileset collage may begin.

Every tileset made in this thread will be made for public use.  No person may hold claim to any part of them or demand credit if they are used in a level.

Here are le rules:

  • You must fill EXACTLY EIGHT ( 8 ) new spaces on your turn, unless you are filling in the last spaces (8 or less). (the squares don't have to be 100% full, but they do need to be fully replaced with the drawing in question and it's space.)
  • Once you've done your turn, you must wait until either one (1) other person has made their additions, or at least two (2) days have passed since the last posted addition to add more to the same tileset.
  • While adding to the tileset, do not alter parts that are not your design without permission from the person who drew those parts!
  • If making another addition, you are free to alter previous additions you've made as well as your 8 new squares.
  • If the forums deem your addition to the tileset to be too far out of theme, lacking in content, or explicit in any way, your addition will be rejected.
  • If you were working on your addition, and you find that someone else has posted theirs before you were done, don't fret!  Just take their posted tileset and add your addition onto the remaining empty space.  If somehow that isn't possible, please arrange with that person and come to an agreement.
  • The person who adds the last blocks to the tileset may name it, but the name must be relevant to the resulting tileset!  For example, if you just name it after yourself, the name will be rejected, and the person who started the tileset will be given the opportunity to name it instead.

In the Spoiler box below are the completed tilesets, as well as any additional graphics, COs or alternate versions.  Check here for previous projects.
Spoiler: Past Projects (click to show/hide)

Attached are the the latest versions of the current projects.  Once the latest versions are on this post, please remove them from your post.

Let's have some fun with this!


Edit by Mod: Made sticky, so the first post is visible on all pages which really helps with this project.

I made extra side and corner versions of what you added. The two bottom tiles I added have a dark outline on the bottom. Did you intend for only the top tiles to have an outline? I think it would look best if all of them (except the center one) had a somewhat darker outline that isn't completely black, like the area of your top tiles right below the black pixels. Tell me if you want me to get rid of the outline on the tiles I added.

This looks like a crystal themed tileset to me.

Possible styles I can see this tileset using well:
  • A blocky theme where almost everything is made up of blocks or parts of them, like how minecraft has slabs (half blocks) and stairs.
  • Simply a crystal-style tileset that has an unexpected theme because it's made by many people.
Other ideas:
  • A bridge and custom coloured water? A custom object could be added onto the water that copies the animation exactly except for the colour?
  • Versions of tiles that have a bit of dirt, so small plants can be put on top.


I made my small additions in MS Paint, so magneta is used to create transparancy. Tell me if I need to switch to another program because my edits might erase transparancy.
EDIT: I'm dowloading GIMP and remaking my edits there. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by removing tilesets LPChip, but I'm deleting my MS Paint version(s) from this post
Edit by LPChip: When people add to the tilesets, and they all attach it here, you get 200000 attachments with the same tileset each having 4 more tiles. Obviously only the latest version is required to work on it, so all older ones should be removed if possible. :)

EDIT 2: I can't get transparency to work in GIMP. Can someone help?
EDIT 3: If someone wants to make an addition the orginal (Fubaka's version) go ahead.

Yes, MS Paint will remove transparancy. I recommend paint.net, gimp or photoshop.

Also, I'd like to request to remove tilesets from posts when they're no longer needed because otherwise it'll be a waste of forumspace.

Understood.  I'll add that as a rule.

Did you intend for only the top tiles to have an outline? I think it would look best if all of them (except the center one) had a somewhat darker outline that isn't completely black, like the area of your top tiles right below the black pixels.

Typically what I do is add a dark tint line to the top tiles and a light tint line to the bottom ones.  The middle ones I usually leave untouched.

custom coloured water?

This doesn't need to be drawn in the tileset, especially if you want it to move.

As for program, if you have photoshop, use it.  If not, Paint.net is the second best choice here.  I used it to get this tileset started, since I don't have my own copy of photoshop at home.

I have decided, for the sake of brevity, that the number of squares you add per turn is now 8, instead of 4.

I added the remaining side tile, as well as additional edges for single-tile areas. I used my last tile for some kind of "Background Wall".
Edit: As per rules, I removed this version of the tileset.

Ah, interesting choice.  That'll change this tileset's dynamic a bit.

I add some more background stuff and I decided to build an example screen to show what I've meant.
I hope more people will contribute because my stuff needs a few more tiles to be complete.
Edit: Tileset removed, but I will leave example screen here until someone makes new one.
Edit 2: Example screen is not necessary now so I will remove it.

Your addition was a very neat idea.  I like the idea of half-height background tiles.

Thanks. I think that those "traditional" sloped background tiles wouldn't fit Egomassive's crystalline plants at all.
Also, I like your idea with new community tileset.
