aikea_guinea: (TS3 - Jacob - Computer)

This has been an ongoing project of mine pretty much since the release of TS3. Unfortunately, it's proving to be a bit of a pain in the ass.

First, sorry about RandomJacob. I wasn't planning on posting any WIP-type pictures of this until things started to fight back, so originally these were just random for-me type pics.

With the standard TS3 alpha-ing, the letters are nice and black, but their edges aren't smooth in the least. This would be fine for things like square signs, but on writing, the effect is just not very nice.

I got the edges to smooth out by switching around some mtlsrc files, but this led to the letters taking on a slightly transparent look no matter how dark they were. I was ready to post these at this point, and then I noticed...

They don't layer. At all. This really annoyed me, since one of the things I liked most about the TS2 version of these was their ability to be overlaid with one another.

I'm going to continue to work on these issues, but if they can't be resolved for whatever reason, are these issues bad enough that you'd avoid downloading them if released? I'm mostly just curious how picky people are about things. Personally, I can't stand releasing something if it doesn't work exactly how I want it to.

OMG, you [almost] did it! This is really exciting! I would definitely still download them even with the overlapping issues.

I think it would be cool if they layered (and how stupid am I that I didn't realize that the TS2 version did), but I think they'll still be useful and worth downloading anyway. Then you can update them when you figure out the problem. I kind of like the transparency, too - it kind of looks old and faded. Just pretend you meant to do it that way.

I'd definitely say they'd be worth downloading without the layering. Also the sorta transparency is really only noticeable up close and even then really only on certain textures like those bricks in the last picture. From a distance it just looks faded which is perfectly fine. I'd download them in a heart beat and gleefully re-download them if they ever cooperated and let you make them layerable. :D

I agree with everyone else. The layering would be nice(and I can't believe that I didn't realize that for TS2! Will have to go back and try it!) but I would download it now!:) The lettering looks faded which is good IMO.

They look awesome, and I'd download anyway. Also, the scratchy effect on the first one isn't so bad, sometimes crappy pens, crayons, or the surface being used creates that. Especially if you're working on cement.
