Well, I was pretty bored today, so I decided to randomly attack Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup’s player tiles and do some pixelart.
Kinda surprising since I barely posted about it yesterday, huh? Heh…
The main objective I set myself was to change the base Draconians around so that they were instead made into Drakahn, the Quasi-Dragon race that inhabits my long running D&D 4th Edition setting (see Alicia, Darien and Mirielle for examples; they are mostly human with dragon tails/eyes and little horns). This turned out to be a pretty good success:
I had a bit of an issue to begin with; as I forgot that Draconians, by default, are not allowed to have Hair, so I also ended up having to replace the Dragonheads in the sprite file with Hair options for Drakahns. This was alright since the dragonheads looked idiotic anyway, but it took a bit of testing to get the alignment correct. The bonus of this was that all the hairstyles have natural horns stuck to them for free now, so thats good. See below example:
The other issue was that I long felt there needed to be more available hair colours, less chunky outfits and such like, so that more anime type characters could be created at my random whims. So some purple/green/blue hairs and such were added, some outfits were trimmed (you can see the trimmed red short skirt and leather vest above!); and girls base figures were made less butch and more evidently effeminate (better hourglass figure).
Finally, Merfolk were made into proper mer-people rather than scaly fishfolk (again, more akin to mermen and mermaids of legends, with human upper features; just with gill-like ears). Spriggans were turned into pale nymph types as well rather than sinister looking charcoal creatures with glowing yellow eyes. Whilst arguments can be made for scary sidhe-folk that are dark like that, I prefer the D&D interpretation…
My next new objective was to make proper clothes for all the characters that are doing well!
Eucliwood Hellscythe the Necromancer (from Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka?)
Shirou Emiya the Transmuter (from Fate/Stay Night)
Ilyana the Air Elementalist (from Fire Emblem 9/10)
Shinobu Oshino the Vampire Assassin (from Bakemonogatari)
Also, in general, revised alot of little things, lots more outfits and hairs added. Fixed Vampires which had gone out of alignment. The new version is now the only one downloadable in the below link. Please use it and replace the old one if you have it!
Anyway, if you’d like to use this modified tileset, get it here
Remember to use save target as. YOU NEED TO RENAME IT TO player.png
You need to put it in:
Where X is your drive; and assuming you used the default path; but regardless, it’ll go in the dat\tiles\ directory wherever it is.
Since I rather enjoyed this little bit of modding, I might do some more in the future, but we shall see.
