Vote: Level up animation!

Post by Danno » Feb 9th, 2019, 12:04 pm

These are some rough drafts for a level up animation/special effect. I'm having a hard time deciding which one looks best, so help me out! Feel free to go into detail about what parts you like or feel are unnecessary.

Myself, I'm considering removing the effect at the character's feet for option C. I sorta feel it makes the animation look cluttered; perhaps that part would be better suited for spellcasting or something. That is, I feel the "LEVEL UP!" part above the character's head might be fine on its own.

Anyway, feel free to suggest changes like that.

I'm liking how option C has nearly no wind-up time. Might look even better if you were to extend the ground animation so that the effect shatters once the text is fully displayed.

Anyways nice job as always, Danno :)

I'm a big fan of option C as well! I also agree with Kyrn that perhaps the animation around the player's feet could be a bit longer.

Tough call between option b and option c, but I went with option b. I like how it swirls around you, and I think I like the overall font of b more too. I would be perfectly fine with option c if it came to more votes for that one.

Not a fan of option a. Font looks weird and the animation is a bit simple.

Just to even it out ;) - B.

I stupidly picked A when Danno asked me yesterday, but B is looking pretty sweet though.

I feel A is too simple, C maybe too cluttered as you said. B looks cool.

I like how the font slides away from the character in option A, but I think the effects on option B and C pack a bigger punch.
Overall think I prefer option C, but B would be great too. (55-45 on that one)

I like the idea of option c
I like the text of option b

Thing is with the option c, its like an aura bursts out from your feet because you're now stronger, i feel like we could make the aura go slightly bigger each level and just imagine what kind of aura will burst out when you get to level 50!

just kidding, either way, they're awesome! i chose option c

it'd be great if Danno just decided to give everyone the finger and go with option A.

Well, it's looking like option B is reasonably popular. All the feedback is much appreciated. The short "wind-up time" of option C is attractive indeed, but I suppose option B's font looks more fun and has more punch. Too bad since option C's font is a lot cleaner and easier to work with. Well then, looks like I've got some work to do!
