How can I edit sprites and paperdolls?
Is there a useful tool to do so? Otherwise I would try to use gimp.

GIMP has no respect for palettes. If you are an expert, maybe you can overcome this problem, but I'd rather recommend Photoshop.

I personlaly use Paint Shop Pro 7 - I've found that its a better program for me.

Just a reminder: armours are colour-coded, so Guardian would have to remain blue, as it belongs to the blue family.

didnt have a clue that was going on to be honest

sorry for asking here. Where do I find what each colour series means?

It's quite simple - green includes Tac Vest and it's derivatives, up through heavy suit, blue is the gals' version of carapace armors, adding more protection and in some cases firing bonuses, and red is saved for the best conventional armors, only really two of those though. There are metal/grey armors for melee, and you could say that camoflage counts as color coordination, but most of the rest of the armors just do their own thing.

I really dislike current color-coding, especially blue-era armors, that are very statwise different, are very likely to be used at the same time, and looks very similar.

I would much prefer role-based coloring - red for tanks, black for stealthies, blue for flyers etc.

I like colorful armor more than plain grey/white and stuff.

A reason I spent like 2-3 hours in toying around with soldier-customizer in the reboot game.
It's personal taste and if I can't change the color of the armor, I just change the color of the gal's hair to fit my standards.

Almost Done with the Update for 0.99H1

To everyone who uses this mod, sorry about the delays - but family, my job and and a really f**king slow to heal injury to my ankle has taken up much of my time over the past 3-4 months.

Just 5 more of the swimsuit .RUL files to fix and then I'll be able to upload.

ETA: Tomorrow This afternoon/evening - I hope.

Edit: ETA Update

Thanks - Once I'm done with the update, I plan to start on doing a version of the crusader (and it's damaged version)

Version for XPiratez 0.99H1 is now here on my Google Drive - File is PAAC_V0-99H1.zip

Please delete all older versions before installing this one - if you don't there will be problems with the file structure.

NOTE: PAAC V0.99H1 has two versions of the mod - The Standard one and one specificly made to be used with the Naughty mod.
          Please make sure BOTH these mods are listed under the Naughty mod, this will make sure that the mods don't conflict.
          You might have to shift them up/down the list to do this.

I'll try and update on the Mod site tomorow.

F**K - How did I miss these?  :o [Smacks head into wall repeatedly in frustration]

Just found a number of problems with Armour transformations / Default armour settings in the enviromental conditions.

I'll fix these tonight.

Edit: Fixed - New File name is PAAC_V0-99H1v2.zip, currently only on Google drive.

Update: 5/10/17

Working on a second swimsuit, Guardian suit (and damaged variant) plus update/fix to the Rul files.

Have a preview. (I still have to add plates to the gauntlets, and the pouches to the undersuit.)
