RE: Joys of Modding
See you say things like this AFTER I've given up Tongue

I don't know half the tools. I'm doing a real pick it up as you go along, something new everytime, sort of experience lol.

3D text in a game is almost safer by using 3D text in the texture most of the time. The detail of text is high cost.

Alternatively, you can make 'floating' text, by having a partially transparent texture 'floating' above the base texture.

Secret's out. Cool

By high cost do you mean high poly? If so you could just use a pixely font, and not have to have curved surfaces. Though, the cartoon outlines in LoUd may make 3D text hard to read..

Tools have them too, try comparing them with cartoon lines turned off in setup.txt.

Because of the way cartoon lines work, I'd probably agree that actual 3d text would look piotr. The alternatives I suggested would probably still work.

I like 'em, they're useful if you're navigating dark caves, since you can see edges of tunnels. Though I wish we still had a key to disable them (for screenshots.)

RE: Joys of Modding
Screenshots mainly I really dislike them for. But I think in general it still looks nice and bouncy and cartoony enough without added random extra lines >_< lol.

I freaking LOVE the artwork in this and hope they take my rubber chicken Tongue (although as a little fun fact, the feet are on backwards)
