Excellent work and sharing, I really hope to generate SV side view battle images
Not sure where your difficulties are. Hair is built in 2 layers for the front hair and 3 layers for the rear hair (hair from behind, highlights that go above things, background layer for compatibility).this program is really helpful. i'm definitely looking forward to all the updates. given it's current state, is there an easy way of converting existing generator resources to enable use on taller characters? for example, i have a "slightly balding" rear hair part that I can't figure out to make work on the taller default sprite.
It depends.Do guys you think there are/will be any assets for Elves & Orcs? (Not the pig looking orcs, more like D&D or WoW Orcs...say no to pig-snouts!)
There have been others with that problem. The last working version (0.10) is pinned in my discord, since Schlangan doesn't seem to be hosting it anymore.Hello everyone, I have the problem that I do everything as indicated for the generator installation, but apparently the new version does not work the same as before, there is someone here who has a previous version of "RPG Maker MV Extended Generator" before the version 0.66?
I thought so, too.A visual equip system with this would be pretty neat!
That's an interesting project. I tried something along those lines initially, but no one seemed interested in making use of an equipped weapons system, so I moved past it & focused on other stuff.adding tall char option to schlangans generator is really an impressive idea!
I am currently working on using the Img size of BigMonster2 on normal 3x4 frame chibi chars in order to have room to add weapons on those Chars for Mapbattle usage
(walk with weapons and use weapons)
=> the extra room can also be used to add State Animations or other stuff to a Char Sprite

(this last Image is work in progress and will be reworked, even if all my assets are free to use , i recommend to not use this one because the sword is moving a bit to much in some cases here)
at the moment this Topic and the Progress can be seen here.
But i will probably open another thread later where i give a step by step tutorial + all assets which i allready edited
Therefore i will also visit Schlangans thread later, when i got more and better edited Imgs and ask about if it would be possible somewhere in the future to store the Characters that are made with Sclangans generator also on those "BigMonster2" Img size.
(regarding the walking Sprites not the SV Sprites)
These Imgs will need an "Ancor Y" edit,when used in a project and that can be done with one of Shaz Plugins easily
really? i didnt knew that this is possible with using "any size".. in that case you are right and i wont need help to add it to the generator! thxI thought so, too.
But your upcoming VN plugin can probably help with that?

Not sure what you need Schlangan's help for, though. You can easily use custom spritesheets in his generator by making your own template at any size and add layers for weapons. You'd have to resize all spritesheets of the assets, though, to fit whatever new dimensions you're going for.
Best way to do that would probably be a Photoshop Action script if you have Photoshop. You can simply record the workspace increase, and then replay it via batch action over all sprites whose dimensions you wish to change and voilá, everything fits the new template size.

(that will avoid a loot of work, when i want to get the Oversize Char Images^^)
on the other hand that sounds like a lot of work
(the char size itself stays same only the Image size and position changes)
->does "assets" mean in that case all Clothes ect?
Im using only paint 3d , and dont think that i am able to do this
I am planing to add most of the Default weapons on Oversize IMGs..View attachment 167488
In the templates field, you can simply change the dimensions to whatever a single 3x4 character should have.
Assets means everything that's drawn and is a part of the character sprite. The body, the clothing, the accessories, all of it.
The workload is absolutely unreasonable, but you can either look for some way to use PSD for some time or ask someone with photoshop to do it for you.
With an action script, all you need to do is put everything in one folder & let a workspace changing action run over it, which automates everything, meaning it can be done in a couple minutes drinking coffee while the computer does all the work. It's what I did to adjust all accessories from the default generator to this generator with the taller sprites.
Not sure what you're planning to do with the default char? If you have the spritesheet dimensions and want to increase the sheet size & reposition the body, clothing, accessories, etc. all of that can be handled automatically. If you give me your unedited base sprite you want used, the final positions you want them to be in, and the spritesheet dimensions, I can just write & share a photoshop action I can do in 5 minutes or something.I am planing to add most of the Default weapons on Oversize IMGs..
(those which are default for SV battler animations ,even if i use icon weapons because of smaller size in most cases)
..and to make Default Char Imgs which can be used as basic
my knowledge is very limited on scripts
Yeah, not sure how and if I'll do that. First this project needs to reach the spot where sideview battlers exist & content can be produced for them. Once that's done, maybe I can start looking into building a composite sprite system where equipment can be assigned to "layers" of a sprite, as you say.@Anyone nah, not properly. My vn system is more just for busts and such. Was gonna do a 4 dir dbone thing for map characters. But I think a system using these assets could be coded up easily enough. Its just some tedious work for assigning each image piece to weapons etc and then creating a custom composite sprite of all layers. Would be much better with these assets than the default generator parts, thats for sure!!
Imo, should probably focus on the 4-directional sprites 1st. Lol, but that's probably just me talking since I don't use SV battlers.Yeah, not sure how and if I'll do that.
