Area 51 - Help Needed With Sprites
« on: June 16, 2017, 11:48:37 pm »
As Area 51 is near to be released I decided to ask to see if I could get help with the missing Inventory/UFOPaedia images of the new aliens since my graphic skills don't extend to drawing such detailed pics.

Here's the list of what is missing, if anyone is willing to help :)
* Phaser Cyborg (Inventory/UFOPaedia images)
* Phaser Cyborg autopsy (UFOPaedia image)
* Thin Man (Inventory/UFOPaedia images)
* Thin Man autopsy (UFOPaedia image)
* Spacefarer (Inventory/UFOPaedia images)
* Spacefarer autopsy (UFOPaedia image)
* Puffer (Inventory/UFOPaedia images)
* Puffer autopsy (UFOPaedia image)
* Jarhead (Inventory/UFOPaedia images)
* Jarhead autopsy (UFOPaedia image)
* Razordisc (Inventory/UFOPaedia images)
* Razordisc autopsy (UFOPaedia image)

I'm no spriter, for sure, but I found something we might be able to use in this mod all the same.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Xcom/comments/112pif/had_some_fun_with_the_teaser_images_though_i_am/



It's cut from  promotional material from XCOM EU-they did a series of 'archival image' sprites that used the 1994 UFOpaedia graphics. Since the Thin Man wasn't in the original game they made a new one for him!

Spoiler:

Some people in that thread said it might be possible to colorize and add it to the game, but nothing ever came of it. The content creator Keiyakins is still active on reddit, and I sent them a message.

I've seen this image before, likely posted somewhere on these forums. Let's wait to see how it looks after it is colorized, thanks
