    This thread here is to show things you work at the moment and also to serve as a general thread for this purpose.

    I cleared the op as the things already presented here were outdated.

    Nice mod but to be more exact what type of mod are you trying to make. A mod which adds in more content or one that makes kag look better?

    edit: Also you should add some sushi into the game. Fish plus seaweed plus rice

    I thought i could make ice blocks, and penguins, but to test my skills I will try to make some natural stuff first.

    Yeah, because the server side mod built around vanilla sprites is going to require players download custom sprites.
     
  7. I agree, feel free to fix/improve it and i'll put it in. I'm not much of a Spriter.

    It actually is a custom sprite, that is modded from the core one. So you have to DL it to use the mod anyway.

    Textures/Sprites files are incredibly small in terms of capacity so it's pretty much seconds to download all of it, you won't even notice.



    More content for map editing because variation is always nice to have, so many things are possible now, such as new biomes, it's also very nice that you can use one texture sheet and have variations of entities and it will randomly switch up in game, and you can mod it so when you edit map png you can use colour codes to place them. I'm not happy about seaweed at the moment I can't seem to get the right result, KAB has this more chunky art direction now with lots of round shapes. I also need to work on blocks that will go for seabed such as mud, I think it should automatically make blocks wet on contact with water and turn dirt into mud, I hope it's possible to script.

    Could someone tell why it takes so long to see changes in kag while modifying files on the fly? Is there some sort of a preset command that does make it take so long or is it dependable how fast the computer is?
     
  11. From autoconfig.cfg:

    g_reloadfiles_count = 5 # How many files to tick forward the file reloader each frame. High numbers will cause filesystem rape and lag.
    g_reloadfiles_wait = 5 # How long to wait between updates to the file reloader.

    You don't actually modify the files "ingame", but modify them using some text editor and then, they get automatically updated ingame after a while.

    And here I was restarting the game after every change.

    Working on art for Quarters. I don't know anything about coding, however.

    Pix, you should ask JackD if you can add your stuff to his server. THAT would be awesome.

    I think with images it doesn't work. At least the times I've made changes to some sprites they do not get updated. Maybe I just need to wait some more time... if it works for you, let me (us) know please :)
