[SBX2] Tilesets

This week has been going by quickly!  With Christmas coming up soon, I must set aside time for buying everyone the things they want >_>.  BUT!  I did get my girlfriend a gift already, and it's pretty sweet if I do say so myself.

The holidays are pushing back my savings for a car though, but it's all good, it's nice to have money to get things for people.

What I am Reading:
Temple of the Winds  by  Terry Goodkind.
Great series (Sword of Truth Series) and just got the 4th book.  Excellent fantasy series if you like that kind of stuff.

I haven't had much time to work on the game this week, but I did set some aside today.  I reworked one  of the tilesets that was provided to me by TheUltimate, and upgraded some of the pieces to fit properly.  I'm so slow at spriting so it took me a while, but I did get it to a state I like.

After that I reworked the tutorial level to change it from this boring flat layout:

to giving it a bit more depth and variety, and making you use your gun:

Overall, it gives the tutorial a less boring feel, and a good industrial background will make it pop out more.

I think the next update will be the save system, I will try to get that in place, I think I will just use .ini files again, since I know how to use them and I like the control it gives me.

Well, that is it for now, just a short update.

Thanks for reading!
