What need to be done :
-Stars animation when yellow thing is dead. (accessories)
-3 items. (Need to think about it, give me idea..)
-3sound. (Death, attack, and a little cuicui when he is idle :roll: )
-XML which I do actually.

I'm working on it, but every help is welcome. (And feedback too...)


(It's little yeah, I want it to be a 10pv / 1exp mob.)

IMO it is too small for a monster, but I could imagine it being used as a particle effect. Unfortunately the particle engine doesn't allow particles which have animation phases AND are direction-aware.

But you still gain my respect as a pixel artist for pixeling a chick on such a small canvas size.

Thanks, it's a real chalange to do that in a small size, but this one is what I wanted. I needed a small monster as the maggot to fit as newby mob for my project.
I already tested it on map and it's not as tiny as that. ^^

@Chef : Thanks, to get a comment from you is always very nice.


Edit : Why it is small? Imagine a player that get upset because he is killed by big monster, imagine now a little yellow thing on his way.

i am a tmw player and not just a guy who is talking at the forum... i would love to fight a tiny monster sometimes... and this one is looking good.....
so why not add this one at the water... just as a "joke"... this one isnt a boss-monster but it let the world look more full of life...
and thats not bad... isnt it?

edit: omg... my english is ugly xD rofl

Give the chick the stats of a fallen, it'll be the chick of death...

It always makes me smile when a small, cute monster goes on a killing spree.

I totally agree with Kage! A cute little monster like this one can be non-agressive and can be spawned near the farm... Maybe a new farming area with some large fields with a lot of these death machines can be really good! :P

I am serious about that! This will be a huge thing for TMW! :D :D

Impossible right now. Chick only know 3 thing:
-Standing
-Jumping/Walking
-Dying (It's better but facultative for eating them.)

As item wombat suggested me a feather, somebody got other idea?

I thought also about a yellow little fluffy feather... Do you really think a cute thing like that con drop something else? :mrgreen:

Nice work though! But do the attack frames...

Why not simply lower than a maggot? u.u
This thread is about my graphics, it will be wombat that will choise if he want to add it in game, which stat it will got, and which name i will got.

Discution like that is annoying, just give me feedback (real one) and which item I need to do for this one.

who said it was a joke? i think it would be quite nice to have a small monster will high stats, why does it have to be so stereotypical for small monsters to have lower stats then bigger monsters? ;) its not all about the size, the chick could have a disease for all we know.

i dont think a chick would be able to drop much, maybe a feather if they have any.

:lol: ...imo it would be cool to see a hen-mob that uses the chick as a attack (like in zelda l.t.p)..
you would stab the hen and then a rain/hail of chicks come from everywhere...just a idea.. :idea: :twisted:

great sprite-sheet :D

---skipy
