I don't like the idea.

Reason: All the old games with no graphics and only the vectors you already have will stop being popular like what happened with the PPG.

Reason: I think a lot of people would take the themes out of the game, like "Destroy Mutant Justin Bieber" with a Rocky that has a JB graphic. People who make games like that would just see it as a more interactive PPG.

Also, with the whole sprite sheet idea I saw for the enemy, how would we know where to put stuff in relation to certain parts of the enemy? Like, "Hey, this head turned into the body! Hey, those shoes are where the arms should be!"

Geoff said there would be a template map to show you where the arms, legs, hands, and that stuff went... xD

Anyway, I think most old games will still be popular. And we'll just ban the "kill JB with JB grapik" games.

One of the reasons I like it is that when you need a character to talk you can have  proper graphic for it and not a dog,owl ect.

This may be a odd question, but with the ability to modify the graphical appearance of foes does this mean in the future we could edit the hp and damage properties of foes of is there something that makes customizability of that kind infeasible?

Like for instance, making a mongol who's graphics are replaced with some bleak, hooded figure that instant kills.

I at first was just thinking we'd only be able to use this to make scenery and blocks, the ability to customize foes and even the player genuinely surprised me since I didn't even know if that was possible to do.

I've got questions about this, here they are:

1. Maybe people will put on innapropriote graphics (I've seen them), what will happen?

2. I don't understand the putting a graphic as the baddie thing. Is it you put a graphic on a Thug and it still holds the bat thing?

3. Is there a "graphics available to use" place? Will it give you a "sorry, you can't use this graphic here" when you put a non moving graphic on a moving baddie?

4. I have this graphic and it's just a square, but it has colors that are moving (or something like this: ). Would I still be able to use it as a square?

5. Is this a lie?
Just so he notices these.

I can already see the games where everything is a black blob monster.

And there's no way to distinguish what is what even with a torch.

Oh the pain those inevitable kinds of game will be.

I don't like the idea.

Reason: All the old games with no graphics and only the vectors you already have will stop being popular like what happened with the PPG.

The old platformer is still popular. what difference does it make anyway?

Quote
Reason: I think a lot of people would take the themes out of the game, like "Destroy Mutant Justin Bieber" with a Rocky that has a JB graphic. People who make games like that would just see it as a more interactive PPG.
Just as with those who make games on PPG like this, the mods will take action. More work for us!

In restaurants, pizza can be baked in an oven with stone bricks above the heat source, an electric deck oven, a conveyor belt oven or, in the case of more expensive restaurants, a wood- or coal-fired brick oven.

Mods will ban him. Plus, I don't think people will hate JB as much now.
