Yet some other manic thing I started and never finished... I really ought to put all my source files into my personal GIT in case someone wants to beat me to finishing it. I just never could think of how a fly could attack other than spitting acid, so I never created an attack animation or posted it. The above example was a dye test on W|R|Y (body white, eyes R, wings Y).

Posted this earlier in the wrong topic. This is a move

Does it have a left/right animation yet?

As for the attack animation, just dumbly ramming into the player could be an option:

Other alternative could be:

This is out of our style, but a fine example of comical morphing of objects in action:

It's not a shame to be inspired by Korean pixel gods.

We would also need some smaller ones for the normal maggots. Like Maggot turns into a fly. Giant maggot turns into giant fly. Just my 2 cents

Not familiar with how maggots work.. but wouldn't it just be:

Maggot -> Giant Maggot -> Giant Fly?
IGN - Trunks

I already explained a few times why self-reproducing monsters are a bad idea: They lead to exponential growth of the monster population when no player is on the map.

  • 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.
