"Enhanced soldier sprites" elucidation
« on: June 14, 2014, 09:28:17 pm »
What if I want to color a soldier sprite using one of the color for skin/hair but not having it recolored by that option?

Example
I make a new full (completely covering the soldier) armor, colored in yellow, the same color used for blonde hairs (since the palette is what it is, not much choice).
Obviously I don't want the armor to turn black when worn by a dark-haired soldier.. can I specify somehow that I don't want it to happen for this specific soldier sprite?

Thanks

Currently the only way to do so is to turn off the option. I believe Yankes is working on making the soldier coloring a "mod feature" so it only gets applied on specific sprites, instead of all around.

Right now I working on improving and adding new features to that, but its basic functionality is working:

Only drawback is not jet updated to 1.0

It's a lookalike (I had to google it to know what it was).
It's the torso for the Cult of Sirius Soldier.. so it's a human wearing an armor.. and so I "rejected" the red eye because it made it look like a robot.
But robots are planned, so having animated stuff like that would obviously be cool.
