    This is a weirdly specific question, and I have literally 0 modding experience but the only thing I really want in a mod that hasn't been made yet is having antlers as an option for players to have/wear. Am I the only person who thinks that'd be rad as hell? I don't even know how difficult it would be to make something like that..

      Do you have any style/idea for it? I may give it a try later

        basically just deer antlers.. If I had the time/experience to make them myself I would do it in a heartbeat, but jumping straight into modding is incredibly intimidating for someone who doesn't even know the language of the codes/game... thank you for the respond, i wasn't sure if anyone would even be interesting ;-;

          You don't need really any coding knowledge to make hats for the game. Just have to edit the hats files, one for the sprites, and one for the data, which I or anyone who wants to can help you with either. Here is a template for hats if you want to give it a try. I might give it a try too, this is a really neat idea :)

            That was the basic idea i had in mind, not try and make a whole new hat but instead just edit the appearance of an existing one. I have the artistic talent (maybe not pixel art experience in particular) to make the images needed, it's just learning how to implement it in the game files that scary.

              You can try drawing your idea out and then ask someone to do the content pack or xnb for you, i never do pixel art before i did modding either but it's not really hard when you already know how to draw

                I could make the art itself, but I'm not sure what the dimensions would need to be. Are there templates that I can use to start off of? Or maybe a guild to demonstrate how to size and fit the modded "hat" onto the player model?

                  That template @HopeWasHere posted, the hat has to be within the space those black and white squares and it also has the side and back views of the head of the farmer as well, and of course the little head would be where the farmer's head would be while wearing the hat. I would love to see what you come up with though, little antlers would be so cute!

                      Nope! Just one of them! That template is for if you're making an entire set or something, so for the finished product it'll have to be added in with the original game hats is all, but that's not too hard to do, and I'd be willing to help with that. Of course it seems that you have a couple people willing to help you out with that here. :3

                      Edit: One set of front, side and back view that is. So like this, just make sure you do the pixel art on a separate layer so you can delete the template after you're done. If you leave the template it'll look really odd in game lol.

                        lol Thanks for the help, i might work on this some tomorrow. It will take some getting used to working with something so much smaller, but I'm sure I can figure it out. It's mostly the coding that's gonna be a hassle....

                          OKAY I LIED I ALREADY MADE THEM

                          Is the model supposed to be that small?

                            Yeah the model is small like that because in the game it gets zoomed in, all of the game sprites are actually very small when you look at them outside of the game lol. For it to be usable you need to delete the template in the background though, the template is just a guide for when you're creating.

                              So, basically like this:

                                That works! Okay, so I've made a content patcher version, if you'd prefer an xnb replacement version I can do that too. I've made it replace the watermelon headband currently, but if you'd like me to make it replace another hat that can also be arranged, it's really not that hard to do, it works in my game, but if you run into any issues let me know please.

                                    No problem. :3 I am currently up at 1am and I seem to work faster late at night, also I'm horrible at pixel art or any type of art at all but I like to help out when I can with the small amount of modding knowledge that I do have lol.

                                    Edit: @argbetz I hope you don't mind, but I also made a version with the antlers two more pixels apart. >>

                                      i don't mind at all! the first set was mostly just to see if it could work, perfecting it can come later :p
