I was thinking about the new art update. And my opinion is just that i didn’t like the new look. But what i’ve we can choose the look in-game by the options. So that you can choose the old look(the look what we have now)and the new look.
Sadly, that won't be possible. While on a technical level I can easily have a toggle that switches between the two tilesets, it would also force me to have to draw both tilesets. That would drastically slow down development since even an old 8x8 terrain can take 4-6 hours to complete, and a new 16x16 terrain can take about 8 or so depending on the complexity. (and buildings usually take most of the day!)
There's also the problem with the art limitations that 8x8 gives me, and the main cause of switching to 16x16. If I had to draw a 8x8 version alongside all the new 16x16 artwork there's some tilesets, resources and mob types I simply just couldn't realistically replicate at such a low resolution.
