Title: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: NeoWorm on August 02, 2014, 11:22:03 pm
I am making this thread to collect feedback on stuff I am making and later to release final sprites. Nailing the X-Com style is quite tricky, but I think I am starting to get it.

Now all the animations and than cutting into parts...

Items are little better, but I have to figure out making of HANDOBJ

that guy would be a really good fit for the "thin man" enemy from xcom 2012.
and are those marine pulse rifles from alien?! and a riot shield?? this stuff looks awesome. props.

Post by: Solarius Scorch on August 02, 2014, 11:36:37 pm
Yeah, the guy is more or less realistic in proportions (though I wish I were this thin), while the original game graphics are definitely more chubby than real people, or I dare say chibi. That's why this character looks even thinner than he is, and certainly inhuman. Whether it's good or bad depends on context.

And the bigobs are nice and crispy!

It is supossed to be Thinman. I made him as tall as the sprite dimensions allow. Still I would like to make him little more inhuman. Maybe diferent skin color.

A pale green skin color might work well on him.

Looks great!

I think the recoloring is hardcoded at the moment, so you have to avoid certain colors or the game will recolor your suits. This happened to me too - I've recolored Power Suits and some of the guys and gals had those weird colors and I sat there, scratching my head, wondering what the heck was going on. They were all wearing the same armor, weren't they, so why did some of them look different?

But maybe the code has changed since.
Title: Re: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: Yankes on August 18, 2014, 02:03:33 am
Recoloring take color group 6 (0x60 to 0x6F index) for face and 9 (0x90 to 0x9F index) for hair.
This two colors are replace by different value depend on solder nationality. If you do sprite based on original male personal armor hair will get wrong hair colors because it have same color group for hair and face (instead of group 9 it use group 6, same like face but different shade).
In original personal armor I fix hair by replacing it by correct colors similar to solder without armor.

I am thinking about it. Also I started flying drone back than, it should be quite easy.

I worked a little on Interceptor Battlescape sprites I started long time ago. I have to research tilesets to make it work properly.

I think I have the cutting part already done. Mostly. Now I am experimenting with MCDEdit, it will take a while.

EDIT:
I went through cutting into pieces, exporting as sprite sheet, importing to MCDEdit, creating PCK file and right now I am stuck at map editing.
But exept for one simgle mistake, the tileset is ready and working well so far. I anybody else want to tackle it right now, you are welcome. I don't know when I will have time to mess with this again.

X-com flying drone. I wanted to do quadcopter originally, but coudn't get the rotors right, so I reduced them to two and it looks fine. Feel free to use. I may will eventually make a ruleset for it myself.

That's a MiG-25PU,  and you may notice the swept, not delta wing, the presense of stabilators and the vertical stabilizers being canted outwards, and also mounted behind the wing and as outwards as possible. Overall being quite beautiful.

True, that is swept, not delta. However, there are other delta wing aircraft with twin stabilizers. They aren't common, but they do exist:

You had me, esp with the Valkyrie :). Here I concede my defeat.

Still think that

a) twin verticals on a small delta-wing airframe don't make sense and look out of place
b) if they are there, they should be canted and placed significantly apart

Title: Re: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: Hobbes on April 29, 2017, 06:31:12 pm
a) twin verticals on a small delta-wing airframe don't make sense and look out of place

Since there aren't much examples other than those I posted, it's possible that aerodynamics makes this configuration only efficient in types of aircraft like the SR-71/XB-70, thus it wouldn't make sense to have it on X-Com's Interceptor.

Title: Re: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: chaosshade on April 29, 2017, 11:42:35 pm
Note that the shown aircraft are high-speed ones and therefore may benefit from twin stabilizers because of frame loads not normally present in other aircraft.

I am kinda confused by MCDs. I tried already, but it's far from finished and I kinda don't know how to try it in game. If you want to try, here it is.

I didn't managed to get that far to make a map. Got stuck at the tileset. The map editor is another can of worms I wasn't able to get working yet.
I hope this helps:

wings as floor, so you can walk under. Stabilizers as walls. Rest as objects / full blocks pretty much. I dont know about the rockets, thought I will figure it out as I learn how to make the rest.

Here's what I built:

(http://i.imgur.com/BIDvEyk.gif)

There are still problems with this map. One is that there is no interior, so no place to spawn the pilot; I have solved it like my other X-Com Files vehicles, by adding a spawn point on the ground to symbolize access to the plane. Another is that some parts of the wing don't cast shadows, but it's a bit more involved.

It's up to you, I personally don't think it's as crucial. But it is a matter of opinion.
An open cockpit would also pose some problems with getting to it - would require adding a "lift" - looking like a ladder leading from the ground to the cockpit - with a special tile on the ground to make it work. I am sceptical if this can be done well, but hey, maybe it can.

It's Avatar from XCOM 2 (spoilers). EU doesn't have propper neon purple colors, so I had to change the color of visor.

By the way, another one. And in fact a reason I made the muton previously. Since Muton skin is grafted on their original body I thought why not to try to use it. Here comes the Bio armor. I wanted to try how does it look and... Quite well but something is missing. Probably some tubes with nutrition or something, I will see later.

I think your versions are a lot better than the hunched-over/hunchback look of the original graphics.

We clearly need to distinguish between a Muton Soldier and a Muton Massacrator. :)

And yeah, these Mutons are indeed better. I think they were never intended as hulking brutes (that's nuXCOM for ya), but more like hard to kill predators - heightened senses, agile moves, high vitality. I think Dude's designs convey it better than the original ones.

Not yet, just design brainstorm now. I don't even have an idea what kind of guns they will be. Except the biogun.

That's a MiG-25PU,  and you may notice the swept, not delta wing, the presense of stabilators and the vertical stabilizers being canted outwards, and also mounted behind the wing and as outwards as possible. Overall being quite beautiful.
What you're missing is that the provided interceptor map sprite has delta wings, while the original interceptor UFOPedia image has swept wings.

Now all the variant, battlescape sprites, corpses for this and the pilot suit.

I am thinking about remaking Skyranger and Avenger to be more interesting. I made sketches inspired by hangar sprites of the aircrafts and I think it's a way to go. Now just to make the tileset and modify the maps.

Tried if it would fit X-Com... and it kinda does. 8 rotations, 4 frames of animation + dead sprite. Inventory and Ufopedia will be easy. So another thing to finish later.

By the way can we have an animated 2x2 unit with rotations?

Cyberdiscs' drawing routine just animates the particle effect underneath, but there's a TFTD drawing routine you can use for constant animation of the entire sprite - I don't remember the number, but check under Falko's HWP editor (https://falkooxc2.pythonanywhere.com), there are some examples there.

X-com flying drone. I wanted to do quadcopter originally, but coudn't get the rotors right, so I reduced them to two and it looks fine. Feel free to use. I may will eventually make a ruleset for it myself.

Does anyone know an easy way to code the linked resource into game? I tried putting it into a mod and it just came out all corrupted.
Title: Re: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: ohartenstein23 on December 04, 2017, 05:05:49 pm
It's not in a proper spritesheet as drawn, so it has to be edited a bit. However, it's already used in X-Com Files, so you can check that mod to see how Solarius Scorch uses it.

Floaters paperdolls. Blue one will be the floater scientist/medic inspired by Ufopedia image.. And X-Com Engineer also inspired by Ufopedia image.

There is also weird alien on UFO navigation Ufopedia image, but he have underminate race. So I didn't decided yet how to use him, but he will come one day.

I also started Tank paperdoll but I am not liking it so far. It will probably need some different approach.

I like that floater "medic".

The human in the alien alloys UFOPedia image looks to me like a scientist using a borescope or other NDI instrument to peer into the internal structure of the meta-material, perhaps to glean information as to how it is constructed. Even if he is an engineer, I don't think they wear those goggles most of the time. Just a hunch.

That X-Com engineer is really crispy, I like it.

As for the tank, your paperdoll looks like it's going in the right direction. But if you are interested in a finished sprite, Bloax made a really nice tank inventory pic; it can be found in Piratez.

Imo this tank paper dool looks more correct front, side view for all, also i like more the less contrast pallet more vanilla feel

Hovertanks are fine, but the normal tanks needs more work.

EDIT:
I am now trying to add these into the game and... Is there a way to make all the types of tanks have different inventory images? I never before even attempted to modify 2x2 units and especially ones with a turret. What I know is that the hull is defined as an armor and turred type is determined by item. Can't find if there can be more turrets defined and how will the item determine which hull it uses.
Title: Re: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: Nord on December 31, 2017, 01:50:04 pm
You need to create more than one tank armors with same spritesheet and different inventory images.
Title: Re: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: The Reaver of Darkness on January 05, 2018, 11:19:11 am
I was thinking of a similar thing recently and I strongly suspect it can't be implemented without a new feature being added to OXCE+. My idea was to have weapons change appearance based on which ammo is on them. You're trying to make soldiers change appearance based on which weapon they have. I think these two things could both be done using a similar design feature.

At current, as you already know I'm sure, the tank turret displays separately from the tank chassis on the battlescape. So here's an alternative idea: put the tank's inventory slot on the part where you see the turret, and have its inventory item actually cover the turret so that it looks like it's the turret in place. Possible problem: turret image is too wide to fit in the 2x3 slot, important in order to display in the 2x3 UI slot. Possible solution: shrink the x-axis of the tank to 1/2 size, so that it is vertically elongated in appearance. This distorted tank will look funny but will fit better into the screen space normally occupied by a soldier. The actual turret you see should then fit within the 2x3 inventory slot. Then all you need to do is give tanks a special inventory layout. I think there's already functionality available to have inventory layout dependent on armor.
Title: Re: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: ohartenstein23 on January 05, 2018, 02:59:49 pm
You can't have separate layouts for each armor, but you can fill slots that you don't want to use with useless 'items' that are just black images (the trick used in XCF and Piratez). However, changing an item's or unit's sprite/color based on ammo loaded is definitely possible with scripts - I've written a few to do exactly that.
Title: Re: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: NeoWorm on January 05, 2018, 05:24:41 pm
I don't need to change the paperdoll based on used weapon - I am not crazy and I know I have only limited time. I just wanted to change tank inventory images and found out that the tanks are defined in some really crazy way that I hardly understand. Because the inventory image is defined by armor, but all tanks and all hovertanks share the same armor. So making the multiple armors with just different inventory images as was suggested before. But I still don't know how is the chassis determined in the item ruleset.
Title: Re: Neoworm Sprites dump
Post by: ohartenstein23 on January 05, 2018, 05:38:13 pm
The chassis (armor) is not defined in the item ruleset.  The name of the item in the ruleset (e.g. STR_TANK_CANNON) is used to find a unit in the units ruleset with the same name and race; this is the unit that is spawned in the battlescape, using the weapon from the items ruleset.  You can therefore change the armor for each type of tank in the units ruleset.
