Could you post some screenshots showing the quality of the levels as they are now?

Yes, their graphics are nice but their level quality is not. Valikorlia has always had a history of great graphics but not so good levels.

Yeah, right. We have tilesets that prevent those silly tile errors everybody else has to worry about.

It's not just about having tile errors, it's more about the design ;D

Which is impeccable by my standards. Not all the levels were made under one LAT Chief, though. So, the quality and style standards aren't the same across the server.

I don't really mean to be negative but good level designers should stick to one style. There's a difference between having a good style and being a good level designer in general, in my honest opinion.

I agree. I, knowing how painful they can be to design, love the grass tile.

You have tilesets that attempt to hide the lack of both style and skill.

But that's ok, because the tilesets are also smokin hot.

Well, nothing can live up to your expectations, Crono. But, Valikorlia's custom tilesets require both style and skill. I've seen a lot of ugly stuff come from LAT applications, when using the custom tilesets.

I see a lot of ugly stuff come from the staff team when using custom tilesets too. Some of it isn't even there fault, for example the grass in dragonbelly inn.

With this tileset even bad levels will look OK, but imagine if all the levels would be well made, that means the levels would look "uberamazing"
