In most cases it would be sufficient to just change the head size a bit and/or replace the eyes.

Note that the new NPC graphic system allows to make use of the recoloring system. This means that it would be a good idea to change the colors of things like hair or clothes to recolorable color tones (100% saturation, hue divisible by 60) when animating.

The system also allows to combine an NPC from several graphics. This would, for example, be useful for the soldiers. You could create separate spritesheets for the soldiers in their different uniforms with the same animation sequence and then separate spritesheets for the weapons they can carry. Then it is possible to define a soldier with uniform A and weapon B.

Sorry, I'm just randomly looking through this topic, why do you think those needed to be re-done?

They are in a different style than the playerset.

Certain projects are vital to the progression of TMW, some of which have been getting very little attention as of late.

*The new frames and animation are essential for the completion of the TMW server

*Animating NPCs

*We also need someone to create some weapons that fit into the newer categories: KNIFE, SWORD, POLEARM, STAFF, WHIP, BOW, SHOOTING, MACE, AXE, THROWN

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Slightly less urgent

*You can make improvements upon some of our tilesets or help completely revise them

*We are always in need of new monsters (preferably larger ones)

*Creation of new equipment (preferably as a whole sets, rather than just helmets)

People often ask what needs to be done so I’ve made this list, feel free to suggest additions to it.

I find this image useful to get a base replacing children NPCs:

There is this unfinished snakeskin armor set:
http://wiki.themanaworld.org/index.php/ ... e_Skin_Set

Male armor is finished but a female version is still needed.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.
