animated treasure chest NPC

Post by lost_soul » Mon Mar 24, 2008 7:35 pm

This is another thing I threw together using the current treasure chest NPC graphics....I think it probably have more frames, the animation doesn't look all that great....but here it is anyways.

once again, do with it what you please, feel free to add, modify, constructively criticize etc.

I like this idea. Adding a flash light when the chest is about to open might improve it. Unfortunately, I don't think animated NPCs are supported yet.

And adding a particle effect for when it opens shouldn't be too hard.

It would be nice if we could add effects to individual animation frames for that as well.

Very nice initiative.

Although someone should actually make it look good before releasing. It's needing a revision with its black outline and small-ish detailless appearence anyway.

Thats a great idea! :)
I like how it lets out a glow when opened, :D
I'm not a very good art but that doesn't mean my opinions are wrong! :o
