[REQ] Graphics for sleepy people

Post by fate » 27 Sep 2009, 22:17

Hi everyone,

I would like to request the following set of graphics:
  • A sleeping bag item icon (32x32 pixels)
  • An animation that indicates that a player character is sleeping (e.g., a `Zzzzz' thing)
  • A spritesheet (or two spritesheets, male/female, if needed) for a blindfold, covering the players' eyes. This should emphasize the fact that their eyes are covered (and probably closed) and not try to look too much like a realistic medieval-fantasy blindfold.
  • A status icon (or animation) for `tired' (~20 pixels high, not too wide)
  • A status icon (or animation) for `very tired' (~20 pixels high, not too wide)
Thanks in advance! :-)

EDIT: Changed the `closed eyes spritesheet' request to a `blindfold' request.

SpamMaster,

(2) is intended for a particle effect, so drawing particles is fine-- as long as we can construct an interesting-looking particle effect from them. :-)
(3) I don't know whether the current client can pull off a lying down effect with a non-dead player. If that's possible, it would be ideal. Perhaps you might want to lay off the blindfold for now while we investigate your idea (and thanks for suggesting it-- the reason for why we didn't investigate that option was probably that we didn't think it would be possible.)

The status icons/animations should be about 20 pixels high (or slightly less). Any width is fine in theory, but narrower is better.

Thanks in advance! :-)

Note that no currently released client supports sleeping frames. So we'll have to use sitting for now. As for the blindfold, a sleeping mask so the player's eyes aren't shown open.

Jaxad,

setting the sitting flag to `dead' should make the client display the player as lying on the ground. If we remove the headgear and replace the armour with a sleeping bag sprite, it might look close enough to someone being asleep.

If the client is told the player is dead, it'll show the respawn dialog.

Jaxad,

there is far too much hard-coded behaviour in the client. Okay, SpamMaster, in that case, sitting blindfolded is the only solution (you only need to provide blindfolds for the sitting frames.)

No. All possible animations are currently hard-coded into the client. To have a sleeping animation, it'd need to be added to the next client version and couldn't be used until all support for all prior client versions is ended.

if we add sleeping frames on the playerset. we also have to update the equipments. not a very good idea for me.

Hi,

This is an idea which is feasible client-side with a little workaround for newer clients.
Older clients couldn't see it, though...

Not if the sleeping bag covers the whole body.
