That being said, forgotten beasts should use correct sprites for their limbs, wings, etc, so I think at the very least, the basis should be there. Even if mifki has to TWBT-magic it together in the end for us modders. ^^

Very cool, the possibility of modded races being able to mix and match body part sprites to retain the game's look is really exciting.
You could do that anyway by just modding the sprites and manually frankensteining bits together.

True.

I could try to keep a file with just arms and legs and wings and heads around in a table. ;)

Well I don't know how far you guys are planning ahead, but if Toady eventually wants to have (at least as an option) ALL races be totally procedurally generated, something like this would seem to be to be the only option for actually doing that.

Hum, will regular, raw-editable creatures going to be (able to) utilize "some assembly required" spritesheets as FBs?

Maybe. Currently planned for civ members and procedurally generated creatures, but not used for regular creatures.

Maybe Mike will post some. ☺️ We are working on regular surface animals at the moment,nothing super exciting.

Howdy! Meph and Mike, y'all are doing a fantastic job at making sprites that look nice, fit together, and are easy to intuit what they represent. The animals are so cute, and I like the latest ramps by Mayday, that have clear boundaries, shading, and a good sense of scale.

I have a question that is only partially related to this thread, but I'm not sure where else to put it: Meph - will you be integrating your own tileset with the extra graphical abilities that Tarn is going to program for the commercial edition? Will you add your map tileset to your game tileset? Also, will your tileset be available with all the Meph Launcher features on Steam? Although I like the Official Tileset for its ease of access and gamelike feel, I will probably usually play using the Meph textures as they are more immersive to me.

Super excited to see your updates on creatures!! Keep up the good work!!

In general: Yes. I don't know what Mifki plans to do with TWBT, but I can port some of my tileset to the new DF. That being said, I might end up in Westafrica this winter for 3 months, so in that time I can't do much when it comes to DF/online things.

If you find yourself in the eastern Yoruba villages of primarily non-Yoruba areas, see if you can confirm the origin of the word Lucumí.

I've just finished reading all 49 pages of this thread, and with great interest too! Very impressed with the quality and attention to detail - not to mention the mindboggling complexity of all the sprite variations (profession, hair, clothes, armor, weapons, etc). I'm curious to hear if you've got any tools for assembling a complete sprite based on a given set of properties, or if you manually compose each variant (e.g. in Photoshop)?

Thanks for giving us a glimpse of the future, and for opening up to community feedback - a little foolhardy, perhaps, but a commendable effort :)

So far we've been doing everything in Photoshop, but the plan is to have the large variations partly based on raws. Especially when it comes to civ members (hair/skin color, equipment) and procedurally generated creatures like Titans, FBs, demons, etc.

Have I ever posted these? ;) (It's been a while since anyone posted anything here ^^)

If those are weapon racks (third from the bottom), then it's better to make them look straight and organized, instead of messy and disorganized. Weapon racks' purpose is a proper storage of weapons after all.

Also the weapon racks and armor stands showing them being used are innacurate. They don't actually ever get used in-game :P

Clearly, Meph is an optimist. ;)

Everything there looks lovely! What are those horizontal bar things below the bookshelves?
