    As of Friday, March 30th, You must provide a screenshot for completed texture packs, If it's a work in progress, not having one is fine, but when you finish it, please put one in the first post of your thread.

    use the shades of blue included in the default sprites, the engine will automatically recolour them to red for team 2.

    all of them.
    you need the different shades so that your sprite doesn't come out one flat colour, because flat colours look bad.

    you can't save 32bit png files with paint, use paint.net, when saving a png it'll ask what bitdepth you want to save it as.

    Depends, if you're are an epic spriter then you can make them fast like mishKa. But if you aren't an expert on it like me then it takes quite a bit.

    It generally takes me less time to create a kag sprite than the other styles I do, since kag's resolution is very small.
    [​IMG]
    I've been working on this sprite(+ more frames, this is just an example, and i'm still not done qq) for many many hours, whereas a kag sprite such as this:
    knightMalet.png
    Literally only took me half an hour to make, there's less detail, but you can really ruin your sprite if you don't place the correct pixel in the correct spot, since there's less space you can use.

    Which sprite/image changes the look of the wood/stone/gold piles ?

    I've modified the images called MaterialStacks, materials, and the arrows/bombs/moneys are working, but It appears there's another one for the gold/wood/stone that I can't find D:
