It's a new year, so it's time for some new resources!  Today I've got some hats and helmets for your heroes.  They work best with short, non-spiky hair, but some of them look pretty good with longer hair too.  We've got a few variations of leather helms, a guard helmet based on the default, two knight helms, a hood, a baseball cap, and two modern helmets based on some of the defaults.  These should help keep your heroes heads safe!







I've also started playing around with making shields, and could use some feedback.  Would y'all be interested in a collection of shields?  There are some issues with them, as I'm putting them in the cloak section so they appear behind the accessory layers, but it seems like a neat idea to give your heroes an actual shield to keep them safe.  So let me know if you think they're a good idea or if I should scrap it, and if you like it what types you'd like to see.

Happy New Year, and happy game making!   :rwink:

Shields are a fantastic idea. Even if there are some compatibility issues with accessories, users will just have to get creative and work around that. I'm excited to see how they turn out!

@hiddenone MY HEEEEERO!!


those helmets look AMAZING!! 


Cant wait to try them out!!


Shields would be awesome!!


i would be happy to test them all out for you. In my current project, I have only one class that can equip shields, so I would love to create new SV_Actors with each shield (to be changed to a new one with each shield equipped)!!


What about putting the shields in "Glasses"? Would they still appear behind accessories, but over Clothes? 


(I admit, I don't know much about how the generator handles those kinds of things..)


great work!! :)

@M.I.A.  A tester would be useful, but I'd need to make more than just the one shield first.  :guffaw:   At the moment I think I need to keep the shields in the cloak section, because it allows me to have the shield go behind clothes for a few poses (like the casting one).  The glasses section doesn't have that option.


So anyone have suggestions for the types of shields then?  I figure some round shields and heater shields, but I don't know what else would be useful.

So I have a question. For the hooded robes, is there a way I can customize the face of the npc where it can wear a mask without it clipping? Like the mask is within the hood itself, and not literally on it?

@Aurawhisperer There's not an easy way to do that in the generator, I believe.  If you want to change the portrait so the mask is under the hood, your best bet is to use gimp or another program to layer the hood over the mask.

` @hiddenone You got to continue the shield! Everyone will love it! Thank you so much for the helmets as well. When will the helmet faces be released?  :rswt:


~ Shield breakdowns;


Thick tree branch as shield --> Wooden round or square shields --> Leather shields --> Metal shields --> Dragon skin shields?  :thumbsup-left: :rwink:


` Special shield; "Roman Shields?"  :rswt:

@SkySurfer  I'm not great at making portrait pieces, so normally I rely on others to help out.  Unfortunately I know right now's a busy time for people... Which means no pieces anytime soon unless I bite the bullet and give it a go.  This is about as good as I can do at this point, would it suffice?

It's my birthday today, so I've got some presents for y'all!  First up are some portrait pieces for my helmets.  I'm not used to working on these type of parts, so they're a bit rough but I figure they're usable.  :)





 


I've also got some shields to outfit your heroes with!  Three round shields and three heater shields to keep your heroes safe, including two based off the ones in the tileset.  Now, there are a few issues with them that just can't really be solved, like the shields can look a bit odd when long hair and clothes with capes, and they appear under accessories so you may need to play around to get things just how you want them.





 


Let me know what you think.  Happy game making!  :rwink:

I can't figure out how to get the modifications to work. Could you describe the process in more detail? At the moment, whenever I open the generator, the options show up, but whenever I try to apply the ones that you have added, they do not show up on the sprites, faces, battlers, etc.


Edit: I downloaded the "Kitchen sink" file, and when I put them all in the right folders, it still didn't seem to work. I have updated to 1.3.0 already as well.

Whoa, those hills. I hope you are ok with me darking the grass to fit my world, but those add so much depth to the map it's crazy.


Happy birthday by the way!

My new 49" monitor has been dispatched from the warehouse. Will it arrive tomorrow? The day after? I love that we can track packages now, even if it does only tell me when it's left that end and when it's arrived at the local centre. As long as it doesn't end up in Melbourne again, which has happened before ...
My friend's doing a surprise stream of my game Origin Hunt on Twitch here ! Feel free to stop by :yhappy:
Me, designing it a long time ago: Having an optional boss fight as a random chance to trigger when you fish in a certain spot with a certain type of bait is fun! Cool idea!
