Sectopod on the 3rd picture is nice.
Triscene on the 2nd picture needs some more love.
The rest is not so visually pleasing, yet.

What is the problem at the disc? Why didn't you like that?

Black sectopod, is too black maybe for this game palette.. it's really hard to create a dark colored thing at this game.

Triscene on the 2nd picture needs some more love.

I gave him so much love this time. Because of massy TFTD color palette, the weapon part was totally messed up. I recreated it pixel by pixel with repairing all the chassis.
Gave him cool eyes.
He got tongue and bloody teeth at every frame, not just at standing.
This version is X-Com Laser version and at the end alien plasma one. I try to fit the color to their branch (laser weapons are black at my mod so i did not made it blue but i could make any color.)
Every part of it parted by layers so i can change any part like weapon, weapon chasis, eyes, body..

When you're at it, perhaps you would be interested in making a weaponless Triscene? It would allow us to customize its mounted weapon, get some variants.

And maybe you would be interested in these pics:





And the RGB version:



Also, would you mind adding smaller pics? I find them really hard to view, unless I open them in a new tab.

Ok little pictures..

I wanted to unarm him but it needs a pixel artist for sure. I can repair/edit what i have, but drawing something is more then me.. but i try to find some pixel artists to hire to do that. I am working on much cooler sectopod version now, i want to add rocket launchers to it but i can't do whatever i want for now as quality.

Pfff those pedia pictures are really bad.. their default is bad.. art is bad.. maybe i can find someone who can draw it more cooler, but i can edit those if needed with the colors wanted.

Yes, very nice!

I have attempted something similar with my Men in Black Sectopod:





But your design is also pretty cool. I like how dirty it looks - more like a prototype than a mass-produced machine. This can be a good thing; I know what I'd do with it. :)

Wow, yours are really very nice too.. very clean work i can say.. yeah mine looks like dirty compared to it.. i need to clean it up.. :)

Do you have falkoo template of it? I can add the launchers to it.

Is there any normal creature editor for 1x1 ones?

Btw here is the files for final sectopod and Triscenes.:

Thanks! I like both, actually.

Unfortunately not, since all I did was recolour, so no assembly was required.

You mean some sort of spriting tool? No, there is nothing like that. Not sure what it would do, though - you have to do the sprites by hand anyway.

Thanks! Grabbing it for future use. ;)

I am using https://falkooxc2.pythonanywhere.com/hwpbuild for HWP, all the works i done here, used that.. I need to see what i do as a whole. So i asked that, is there any tool like that for single units.

If you can recolor your sectoids again with the template from https://falkooxc2.pythonanywhere.com/hwpbuild, i can add launchers.. Every sectopod deserves to fire rockets!

Templatas are like that:

I don't have particular plans for Sectopod rockets at the moment, so I wouldn't ask you to add them... But if you do, I will consider this change.

I would probably use yours too so i would like to use them launchers. I asked for that reason too.. but not needed for now..

Heya..

I came with another attempt for greatness!.. I present you the little black disc of death!

PS: Added default color version.

Thx for merging my comments.. i reply new ones to be seen.. i hope it does not bother you..

Anyway, some big and good news..

We need more violent dinos who want to swallow humanity alive. And when a dino does not enough, an armored dino would make your day worse!

Actually it does bother me a lot, have you heard of netiquette?

My bad.. sry..

I just did not create those dinos.. its a paid work from a sprite artist.. I am happy with the result. They looks more though then default versions.. especially with arms and claws.. i will do some pixel editing for teeth and some details for sure.

I wanted to have a real melee unit which is very dangerous, even kill a power armored guy with 1-2 bite.. armored ones will be a ultra dangerous one with the armour.. and armored one can have turrets too probably..

It's all for communities and XCOM's sake of course. I will share the sprite sheets soon.

------------------------------------------------------------

I finished the editing and recoloring. Good Use!
