garage inc. - Thanks for fixing it, that's exactly what I was talking about above..although the exact opposite of the editing others' stuff lol, anyway - someone had to do it! Although, seems like you forgot the white line behind the bridge (just a few pixels) and there's a few pixels missing from the side walk by the jail.. did I do that? oops

pixelblink - i decided to just keep going with the flow and changed the colors to the most recent version before mine... makes things less complicated lol

 

Edit: Hows about some cars people?

Hah, plenty of helicopters but no cars!

Anyway, I'm going to be away for a week, but when I get back I look forward to seeing how this has progressed :)

The bottom of the city is coming along nicely... But the top is kind of boring. There's long empty streets with nothing on them. Maybe someone should make cars.

I hope nobody minds but I fixed the steps on the top right where the road slopes up.

Hmm, I hate having to say this but...

First of all, everything's too boxy. At least ryan's trying another designs with the arch but it's not enough. Why don't you guys try to be more daring with the buildings?

Also, where are the cars? We have two choppers but no cars at all! Oh, and the cats are bigger than the people! They're like giant building-climbing tigers!

And at last... Why on earth there's a floating chunk of beach in the bottom right?

I think you guys should add more to it, it just lacks interesting stuff - details. It just looks too desert and dull as it is, and the lack of consistency isn't helping.

I mostly agree w/ what you're saying, so why don't you give it a try and add something less boring to the city?

He's saying that we ALL have to help make the city more interesting. He can't change anything by adding one tiny little square. Becuase you can't really do much with one 50x50 template. We all have to make cars and people and stuff and make the city more interesting.

No duh

The thing is, I think we've edited the existing squares enough.  The details are more consistent now, so people should focus on making the rest of the squares instead of chaging the finished ones.  There's plenty of space left to add "interesting stuff" and cars and more details, and we can always add more squares to any and/or every side of the city.  Basically we should get over the fact that the finished parts aren't as good as they could've been, stop complaining and get to work on the rest of it and make it better!... yeah, some inspirational words for ya'll :D

i don't think claiming is stupid.... when the collab started, i made a square without claiming it, and when it was done and I was uploading it, I saw that another one took it before me....

this isn't a stupid idea - if you post the claimed square in one, max two days from the claim obviously

okay man, when I made the 2 cats I compared them with the yellow door, and actually they are a little too big... but really are the persons that are yery too little, they're tall like a half of the door :S

Holy crap. I can't believe how much you alot of you kids like to bitch and complain. Let everybody make their own mistakes and let the next person to deal with the square beside have an imagination to do something with it. If you all have issues with somebody elses square, just shut the f**k up and start your own iso city. This is a collaboration. Please remember that not everybody is an expert isometric pixel artist like yourselves.

Ryan: do you even remember the mosaics at deviantart? They were a mess all unto themselves and I didn't ever hear this much complaining about them

The city's pride and joy, a statue/water fountain of their beloved city founder, Jedediah Pixelton, with his torch (hint hint emiko) held high. One of the main attractions in the city.

I love the massive statue addition.

So what's going on with the floating palm tree platform? Is it flying in the air or is it attached to something?

ok the fence was screwed up in the making of the city lol, there's nowhere for it to go! all the squares done before me have no fence, so it just ends abruptly and the authorities trust the prisoners to be conscientious enough to stay and serve their sentence. 

How kind of them  

BTW, it was really hard to see there the side of my square was and since it was zoomed it I didn't notice that I'm 2 or 3 pixels into someone else's area.  I just added the edge of the boat, so I think it's ok.

Gararararara, Ryan! Damn, I was totally working on something completly different. Not bitching at all though, your idea is much cooler then what I was working on.

Oh, and my apologies to everyone about my 'floating oasis' T__T I created it with my old apartment in mind, as I lived on the top floor, and had a kiddie pool and plastic blow-up palm tree up on the roof.... but I digress- It's not entirely my fault: I'm not sure why whoever did teh square below it made it floating... but hey, you know, there are green berets in the city, and giant monster cats too. Anything is possible!

Who says this city isn't interesting? It's got helicopters, holes, a giant naked statue, dead person on the roof, giant wall-climing cats, a floating island paradise and a giant fighting SQUID!  now if that's not interesting I don't know what is... 

Lookin good everyone! Next person to update please add another column or two to the right side
