In trying to keep things organized, I've employed a few different abbreviations to keep the filenames from running out of control. They are:

  • sc: spellcast
  • th: thrust
  • wc: walkcycle
  • sl: slash
  • sh: shoot
  • hu: hurt

If you'd like to help out, please do so! I've worked with @joewhite to hammer out some basic guidelines:

  • Edit the .png files, not the .xcf. Once the pull is merged, a maintainer (@makrohn) will fold the .png files into the .xcf
  • For hairstyles, you can create a few small images, and then generate the spritesheets from them. See EditingHair.
  • As with code, try to keep pull requests grouped thematically - eg, "skintonefixes" "suitandtie" "blackshoes" so they can be evaluated separately.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
