Weapons update! I got a little bit of everything this time o 3 o/ Some of these I've posted up on twitter you'll probably recognize some of it, but there should be a lot of surprising new stuff here!
I also updated the weapons download file to include all the new weapons!
So starting off you'll notice a new addition to the joke weapons, water guns/toy guns! Awhile back someone mentioned something about making splatoon looking paint guns, and since most of the guns there look like nerf and water guns, I decided that'd be a pretty alright thing to get down for anyone interested.
In the Melee based weapons, we have a variety of swords! Not just your typical normal ones but also Rapiers and Katanas! I know Rapiers have been on that list of stuff people have sort of wanted for awhile, and there's been a lot of people who've done several already, but I wanted to go the extra mile. Each rapier has both a thrust and swing animation. I know you don't typically swing them, but for the sake of animation options it's there.
Ring Blades was a kind of a weak attempt at making something that looks like a glaive, but it didn't really work out too well. Thankfully though, I did actually make some kind of glaive-esk weapon, but they're quite large, so may not be something for everyone. I'll keep working on it though.
Someone requested more Scythes so there's another sheet of them now. In the instruments catagory I have made new Lutes and Horns! These where both requested items and both I think are good enough to post up. I've actually considered making new battle animations that would accommodate instrument use, like flute or guitar playing, but I've simply not gotten around to it yet.
The last thing in the weapons list is fishing poles! These could be used in a fishing minigame, particularly a plugin of some kind, of you can just use them to smack enemies upside the head. It's a pretty straightforward swing animation.
In the Themed weapons, we have a new forest/vine sprite set, weapons now have a leafy vine/root theme on them. The Devil Theme was something I kind of wanted to do for awhile. I really like the purple monster boss sprite in MV's files, I really like the color palette for it, and I wanted to make weapons based around it's theme and colors. The next themed sets, since I had made a devil theme, I decided to go the opposite way and make Angelic weapons, but while I was making them I figured someone would be asking for a black winged set, so I made two Dark Angel sets. a purple/black and a red/black.
I was surprised I got as much positive feedback on the floating weapons as I did, I didn't really think of the floating weapons to be particularly interesting, but hey you guys gave me a reason to make familiars for it. I call them Fairy dolls. Animated dolls or puppets characters can use to attack with, similar to Lulu from Final Fantasy 10. I've already got a few more ideas for the fairy dolls, so expect more of those later.
Futuristic/Space themed weapons list got a new addition, some more gun types, they look a bit more streamlined then the previous ones I've made looking more like handguns. I'm not super great at futuristic items, but I would like to make more stuff for it, it's just going to take me longer then almost anything else.
Anyways that's that \o w o/ new weapons! I hope it was worth the wait! Questions, comments and suggestions are appreciated and as always, Enjoy~
Well, no lol I wasn't planning on releasing a new base set. I have already made several SV animations though! It's the same style, but with more unique animation options, I just won't put them up into their own base set, for a variety of reasons.
Longer katanas are simply not possible under the normal base weapon sizes. If I did make them, you would absolutely need a plugin for it, and I'm not particularly interested in making plugin specific stuff right now. I'll look into the lances though!
