While I agree Sci-Fi would be nice, im not sure that makes sense. With it being just Jesse doing the work, it seems like it would dilute everything hes worked on so far (all fantasy based) - I'd rather he go all in for a single genre so we can make a game.
Him doing a single pack of Sci-Fi wont be enough to make a Sci-Fi game with.
Him switching over completely to Sci-Fi means there isnt enough to do a Fantasy game in.
It makes more sense to me to get one genre complete, then move on to the next.
Yeah, it makes sense for the Medieval pack to get finished first than move on. I believe there's been talk of at least three-four additional content packs for Medival so it might be a while til a non-Medieval pack.
Last generation graphics did have a steampunk pack and a few sci-fi tiles.
id like to see more magical things, robes, orbs or spheres in the offhand, some different base template models or unique ones, oh and id love some more hair for males, id also like to see a new iconset, currently using the old pv one resized.
This might be a bit of an odd request and is arguably something more of a thing for paid packs. But I think that some pre-rendered backgrounds might be handy. Guessing it could be villages or cities for example. They would go well for a VN style I guess but if you decide to do it, make at least a sample pack to see if it's something that you want to continue.
As I mentioned previous, my work station is not really set up as I am in the process of moving across the country, so my focus right now with my limited work setup has been to prep tons of character creation pieces that I can finalize after my move, which will be scattered throughout commercial packs and also used as freebies. Lots of hair coming up for sure - I haven't done the male hair yet, but there are over 80 new unique female hair styles alone (will be fewer for men, but still a substantial amount) and far more pieces in clothing, armor, accessories, etc.
Sci-Fi is great, I love the genre, but it didn't work out so well the last time I tackled the genre lol. My Sci-Fi pack was more of a victim of bad timing than anything else, but it made me want to just focus on what "most" people tend to need/want the most, which is Fantasy resources. I will do another Mythos pack with new eldritch horrors and characters and all that at some point though, before I even think about doing another Sci-Fi pack, as Mythos remains one of the better selling resource packs aside from the Fantasy resources.
80+ hairs? That is so much. Can I assume it's really a lot less considering that you have them in different colors?
And another suggestion is that male eyes without editing, look real pale as if soulless. Maybe another freebie could be a male base (which is just for portraits) with a stronger eye color that would be easier to edit?
Yay! More hairstyles! Perhaps less pure Medieval styles, and more fantasy styles. Maybe some make-up decals for busts and full body images; tattoos too. They don't need to be visible on sprites. I'd love facial tattoos.
The 80+ hairs is the true number, no recolors. I stopped doing the recolors because its actually way easier to do the recolors now within the character creator software, so no need for me to use up time making different hair colors and taking up a lot of extra space/download time, so all hair is blond or light brown or something else that is fairly neutral and easy to recolor to any color you want. As for eyes, yeah I can see about adding something for that.
In GIMP, just take the hair and go to the Colors tab and click Desaturate - viola, grey hair
To make it more white, use the brightness and contrast controls, increase brightness by 40-50, and contrast by about 10 less than the brightness. Fiddle around with it a bit to get the results that you want.
I am a very simple man. I'd really like is some more heraldic shields and tabards. Maybe some Game of Thrones inspired ones, with the new season just starting? Doesn't have to match exactly, I know that could possibly get you in trouble.
You could make necklaces and jewels that are separate so you can layer them and it's easy to change the color of each individually, like a build a jewel thing. Along that same idea hilts and sword blades that line up so you can build swords for easy variety
I'd love more capes! Perhaps some assassin style hoods complete with masks. It'd also be nice to see some more crowns; especially one we can place on helmets to make kings stand out while in full armour.
Personally, I'd like to see more regal attire; more ornate clothing, headgear, etc.
EDIT - Oh! We also badly need horses. The customisable ones in the Wild Steam pack were awesome, but they're too small for the new human sprites. Not asking for these to be free, since you could easily create a whole pack with just horses and various accessories to go on them: barding, saddles, bags, different manes\hair (not sure what you call it on horses) etc.
