For those of you who are interested in my Pixel Art Town Project
, then this journal is for you. Below I will give you a little update on what is going on and what will be the future of this project.
Today I spent about 3 hours on updating this project so that it could grow bigger in the future. Even with only 64 spots it was a nightmare to update every time someone got done with his/her part, mainly because of the amount of layers this project requires and moving these layers. So that's what I wanted to fix today.
Basically before all participants had 2 layers in my .psd file + all the files needed for the base of the project (roads, etc). Since with today's update (traffic lights, lamps, etc) I had to add around 400-500 new layers, then something had to be done beforehand. So all participants now have their own folders and a color of the folder (green/red), depending if they are done with their part or not. Also all traffic lights and lamps are separated into different folders for different locations.
All of this and more allows me to expand the project in the future, because by the looks of it, a lot of people are still interested in joining.
Main thing that I would want to point out with this journal is that this update won't affect your part of the project. Traffic lights and lamps can all be separately moved, if they should block your part of the project. I already removed or moved some of them where they didn't fit, so don't worry about it.
If you have a spot in this project and it isn't done then please let me know how far you are with it, because there are a lot of people waiting for the spot and in April this project will be 1 year old. 90% of the people who haven't finished their part are the ones who joined right at the very beginning. I have talked with most of you but I have to start removing people soon.
