    In this thread, I will share character resources I made. To begin with, mounted characters:

    Terms

    Commercial: OK (a free copy would be appreciated, but is not a requirement)
    Non-commercial: OK
    Edits: OK, but hiddenone would like to be contacted before sharing of edits of her work (which my base sprites are derived from)
    Maker: RPG Maker MV (or another maker, if you own both)

    Credits


    These sprites are based on hiddenone's tall sprite base images, please credit her as well when using these.

    The horses are entirely whtdragon's work. Her resource pack contains several recolours of the horse. Again, please credit her if you use the horse.

    You can credit me as "Coelocanth"

    My part in this is creating the clothing / armour / harness and editing the base sprite into a riding position.

    Ready to use graphics
    Here are a human knight and elf ranger based on the female and male sprites.
    The sprites on foot are using hiddenone's tall sprite v2 template.
    $knight_foot.png $knight_galloping[f4].png $knight_walking.png
    $ranger_foot.png $ranger_galloping[f4].png $ranger_walking.png
    How to use these
    Walking images are normal character sprites.
    The galloping horse has 4 frames, and needs a script to use. I used the "Victor Engine Character Frames" plugin to produce the example.
    To switch between galloping and walking images, you can use a common event with parallel processing like this:
    Code:
    ◆If:Script:$gamePlayer.isDashing()
      ◆Change Actor Images:horse test 2, None, MVhorse-altcolors_run[f4](0), None
      ◆
    :Else
      ◆Change Actor Images:horse test 2, None, MVhorse-altcolors_walk(0), None
      ◆
    :End
    You'll also want to change actor images when the player gets on and off their horse, unless they spend the whole game mounted.

    How to edit

    Layered images for GIMP are included in the resource pack. GIMP is a free image editor, and can export to other formats if you prefer different tools.

    If you want to draw your own clothing, use these base images as a layer with one of whtdragon's horses:
    tv_rider_base_f.png tv_rider_galloping_f.png
    tv_rider_base_m.png tv_rider_galloping_m.png

    The rider has three frames. For the galloping horse, the rider in frame 2 and 4 are the same except for positioning.
    Clothing layers can be copied between the walking and galloping images and dragged into position.
    Note that the galloping horse has 64x72 frames as well, compared with the 48x72 of the standard and mounted walking tall sprite.
