Smaller jetpack for a advanced armors
« on: April 15, 2022, 07:34:45 pm »
Using my non-existent artistic skills and "inspired" by the existing jetpack art I made a sprite for a smaller jetpack which I use for some of the more advanced armors. The original idea was to just free up the central slots of the backpack, but this is impossible given the limitations of OXCE, so this is what I ended up with.

Anybody interested?

I have to say, the bigob is really nice.

How did you make it occupy the middle row of the backpack? :o

It's all in the ruleset reference  ;)

Let me know if you want the bigob. Black just looks sleeker than blue in my oppinion  ;D

Yeah, I should study more...

True, but I think in this case, the emitter should be bigger, since it's such a high-end suit. Good idea for something else, though - perhaps astronaut suits?

Would have liked to block out the two outer slots instead, but not happening because items can't share a default slot and you can only define rectangular item boxes.

Yeah, I had the same thought. Still, one in the middle would be fine.

This is pretty theoretical at this point, since I don't have specific implementations in mind. I mentioned the space suit before, but now I don't think it would work - the big LSS is too iconic. Maybe for some underwater gear?

Not sure, wouldn't that be more about buoyancy?
