That's a variant, not an alternate mode to Vanilla. Still not a bad idea, I think; basically you want to reduce the range of everything to, oh, a third of current, and then make some changes to monster placement and summoning so that fights generally stay small.

I originally wrote my post assuming a variant, but then thought it would be a shame if Vanilla didn't have these tiles in it. You're right, of course, it needs to be a variant. What to call it though, ShockboltBand? 64band?

Short-Range Angband or Closeband or something of that nature. Or if you want to emphasis the graphical side, Shinyband.

The standard Angband, the reference implementation against which variants are compared.

FA has this mode - it's remarkably easy to implement.

As mentioned before, I hope one of the code experts add a funtion that resize the tile when opening up the map, so that when playing, the tiles are 64x64 at max, and perhaps 32x32 or less when seen in the map

Working on it, but might be a while in waiting!

Please don't take my suggestions as demands to alter the code to fit my tiles, they are...just suggestions

It may be a while before I complete the tileset, so there's no rush really (unless You would be a hero and add png support first of all )
