Summary 0007229: Additional Projectile Tiles / Projectile Tile Revisions
Description L-R: Stone Arrow, Poison Arrow, Throw Icicle

Magic Dart, Throw Flame, Throw Frost,

Drain, Sandblast

Several of these as previously submitted weren't visible enough (Stone Arrow, Throw Foo) and a couple just didn't look good (Magic Dart, Sandblast) so here are some tweaks and improvements. Additionally, the Sandblast tiles are also intended to be used asmanticore projectiles, considering the image can also look like a volley of spikes.

Drain was previously just a gray shape that didn't show up too well on most floors, this one is visible on most floors and takes its visual cue from Tartarus tiles. Currently I'm working on new spell and ability icons, and I expect my distant descendants will complete these slightly after the sun goes cold -- in any case, those tiles will further reinforce the visual design of negative energy.

I put all of these in except for Sandblast: it doesn't look much like sand to me, and since it's usually on-screen for a fraction of a second, and against a bright yellow background, it's kind of hard to see. The current sandblast has the same problem, of course.

The others all look great!

Hmm, what do you recommend? I could outline the streaks in semi-transparent black, they'd stand out decently that way -- but that wouldn't work for the not sandy thing.

These are either in or obsoleted -- perhaps a new Sandblast tile could be made someday, but this one will not be the model for it.
