I was working on VehicularFun
, and quickly realized that it has a STRIKING resemblance to Horde
, an older project. I figured I would just spice it up a bit and change the perspective of the game, as well as the overall aesthetic. I want to go for the view that Retro City Rampage
goes for, which is tilted at 45 degrees (I think?).
How would you
go about this?
I was thinking of 3 things:
Just a bunch of tiles. Little bits of a building could be represented in it.
Would be VERY large, and a pain to make a whole bunch of tiles. Also inefficient rendering. Do not want to go this route so far.
- Custom Map 1:
Make a default street grid, and have buildings inside of each 'block,' each having their own ID that I can edit in a file.
This would be a DRASTICALLY smaller file, but it would look a bit reppetitive seeing the same road with the same size buildings everywhere.
- Custom Map 2:
Building off of #2, I could make size adjustments to blocks, such as a 1x2 block building, a 2x4 block building, a 4x5 park, etc.
What do you think I should go with?
