This is the SuperMechs Sandbox thread - the place where I post my custom fan-made sprites along with everyone else’s as one big showcase.

So a new idea has just bounced off inside my head, which I shall call ‘Custom Parts’. Basically what this is, is a bunch of varying parts made during the initial sprite which can be swapped out to customise it; we’re talking about window shapes, lights, extras sticking out of the general sprite, minor details like that. Now obviously this will require more work and thus I won’t be able to apply this to most of the sprites that I have made or make in the future, but for the ones that I test this out on should be pretty awesome if all goes well.

I shall use the Bulkhead as an example, with it’s default parts applied surrounded by the ‘custom parts’ in their respective areas of application.

*Window tint colours will also be an option of customisation, red is used by default when I edit sprites due to it’s easy HSL values.

Updated part listing for the Bulkhead


It features:

  • 1 Master Sprite
  • 6 Bodykits
  • 9 Frontal Windows
  • 7 Extra Details
  • 15 Head Types
  • 4 Spoilers
  • 20 Chestplate Parts

I am currently working on names for the parts and their manufacturers. I have also made three logos related to this project.

Do anyone know in wich program is it made? is it just in some kind of photoshop or there is special program for supermechs parts?


#5

Hey! anyone here???


#6

@ODZ Yes, a general image manipulation program. The one I use is GIMP, sometimes in combination with Inkscape for custom masking.


#7

My turn.

Yes bring some :slight_smile:


#9

That moment when it crashed and you don’t have a backup… Oh wait i always have a backup! @Xzyckon

Please do not look at my toolbox.
I had uninstalled the program and now that I reinstalled I am too lazy to configure it. ;-;

#11

@KilliN great work pal :slight_smile: luv the sprite and regen effect, But it could get op with the “Diamond shell cancerous push” type loadout. And people will always find a way to abuse it.

All in all great work.


#12

Oh wow, this looks quite clean. Good job!

BTW do not be afraid to use the stuff that I’ve made, that is the spirit of doing this spritework after all and also I love seeing what directions a piece of art can turn with the aid of others.


#13

I prefer thinking that the repair drone doesn’t exists :v


#14

It is, all it really does is just prolong the battle.
