I've been playing with the RTS plugin quite a bit, and I was surfin looking for ideas for tanks etc, and I came across this site.

Seems the author is letting people use a set he created a long time ago.
Just a thought but it seems perfect for Construct tho the sprites might need a little manipulation to use.
Might even contact the owner and see if they can be included.

Wow what a damn shame... that game would have been awesome as hell. Deformable terrain? Why is this not in use already?

I feel sorry for those guys, because they missed the boat by 4/5 of 5/8 of crap all.

Cool pixel art though... especially for the time.

Great artwork, from the golden age of high-colour 2D graphics. Also a great article on coming up with original game ideas.

That sites got a lot of interesting stuff.
Seriously someone should contact the author about a license for these, Im even getting tempted to use em.

I contacted the owner, and he replied that I can use them for my project, even if its commercial.
He just wanted some sort of link back to his site.

So...rather than spend dozens of hours making my own, Im going to use the Hard Vacuum set for a project I have in mind.
Thing is the whole set is geared to 20x20 pixel tiles, and Ive just about got the set prepared for use in Construct, but the mapping process is going to be a nightmare.
