Still alive XD
Between the new Zelda and the new Gamemaker Studio actual gameplay development has pretty much stopped right now. (Loving both distractions by the way!). I expect I'll need about another month for the conversion to Gamemaker Studio 2.

Just a little update to show the project is still alive.
I hit a little snag earlier this month with the new inherentance options of GM Studio 2, which caused all the new tileset usage to get scrambled (see screenshot). But I'm almost done fixing it and truly finishing the conversion to the version of GM. Aside from that I'm working on adding a small intro cave to the game and making progress on the next dungeon (=A lofty mansion complete with garden and underground cells). The plans for these rough designs for these new area's are done, though it will take several months to fully add all intented functionality (which I'll add in phases).

Progress made:
Code: [Select]

* Started implementing newly optimized tilesets

* Fixed glitch where enemies can move over some types of terrain
* Replace almost all usages of obselete function: instance_create

0.18.31 Studio (15-26 april 2017)
* Cleaned up (faulty) coding behind dynamic depths enemies/character/various objects
* Removed last remaining usages of obselete function: instance_create
* Implemented enum() for floor numbers
* Made further progress on new tileset (implementation)

0.18.32 Studio (27 april 2017)
* Added cave on adventure (=new intro cave)
* Made more progress on mansion dungeon
* Chest types now handled via enum values
* Lots of smaller room changes
* Fixed depth issue HUD
* Made more progress on retiling with new tilesets

And here is the latest progress report:
Good progress was made on the swimming mechanics, but it's not yet finished.

Sorry Theforeshadower, but it needs a little bit more polish before I can send it out. Specificaly: I kinda didn't realise water in the overworld used slanted edges :o, whereas my water mechanics (so far) only take rectangles into consideration. If that makes sense. I feel kinda silly for missing it.
I could send what I already have, but the water looks very much out of place in the overworld without custom tiles. So it's not ready it yet to bother your streamfollowers with I think. I'll toss it over as soons as it's also fixed.

For all: I DID add a diving mechanic. This also wasn't in the original appearantly (Not sure what was up with my memory this week), but I really like the results so I'm keeping it in. As it uses the action button diving will replace the faster swimming motion from the original.

Code: [Select]
0.18.39 (21-28 mei 2017)
* Made more progress on swimming mechanics
* Made more progress retiling using new tilesets
* Added diving mechanics
* Made it so you're forced to come up for air eventually

@Theforeshadower: Still working on the swimming mechanics. It turns out adding it to my existing collision system is a bit of a headscratcher, but I'll get it done eventually.
See the screenshot for the current situation.

I was looking for some more statue variation. Thanks. Looks good.
Any chance you'd be interested in making some more custom sprites for the game?
