Hope I am in the correct part of the forum.

So, I have a lot of icons I would like to use for my items. I know that there is one way to get them into the engine: Manually edit everything together in an external graphic tool and replace the IconSet.png in the img>system folder.
However, in my case that will be A LOT of work. Like at least 20 hours.
I would really like to... not do it that way. Is there another way? Maybe a plugin that already exists and that replaces the default icon with a specified other image based on the item ID or something like that?
Or is my only possibility to do it completely manually?

Manually is the only real way. If you want a custom iconset, you gotta put in the work.

I want to make sure that anybody who has a similar problem does not only find the question but also the solution:

So, I was very annoyed that this was not possible and looked for somebody to write a plugin to do it.
ct_bolt did an awesome job and you can find the plugin on his homepage: https://itch.io/profile/ct-bolt
Check it out, its very well worth its money.

Folks, if anyone sends you a message inviting you to add their API to your game, please report them. We don't want people spamming our members asking them to add stuff to their games for their own (or others') benefit.
I'm listening to iiluminaughtii talking about the secrets behind shady businesses and scams. Meanwhile I'm writing a fanfic about Sephiroth from FF7, one specifically for my stepmom. I'll get to give it to her, too, because my boss said I could take the holidays off! Dec. 22-27 I will be in Orlando, and maybe Fort Myers too, visiting my dad and stepmom!
Of course, I bought a handful of games on the Steam Black Friday sale. Will I try them? Will I complete any? Who knows...
I don't really have any neat updates today about how I screwed up programming... But if you want to observe the intensenes of me programming, then you can check out my stream :)

No more spam from me today, I promise! Just wanted to upload this, people have been giving me feedback that my weapon sprites (which were RTP) clashed badly with my battlers for ages, so today I finally took the plunge and updated them! Really happy with how they came out :D :D
