  1. My assumption is that no matter how detailed I make the sprite, it will end up being quite simplified to fit Starbound's style.

    And as such, I'm not qualified to make a sprite due to my love for details, so I won't bother o3o
  2. Finished the Dissonance Bone Armor [both front side and back side.]

    Will put in OP right now.

    I don't really know if all colors fit, but included all the ones that I made:



    Next I will try to make some of the weapons and armors that Suika posted.
    * looks at the dissonance armor * Some of the easier ones, at least.
  4. Harmony Bone Armor

  5. Harmony is the first thing that comes to mind.

    What are you referring to? I'm pretty sure he was bringing up how ironic the name is...

  10. Thankfully, I can do starbound sprites.

    EDIT: So APPARENTLY, the horns aren't part of the armor now.

  11. Oh, the horns are part of the character, not the armor

    I know this animation needs a lot of polishing, but I want to know what Suika thinks of it:

    The basic idea is that the respawn system makes a template/container using monophyte "magic" and the cell culture (or whatver that is) grows into the correct shape.

    It's much too flashy IMO
  14. You got the idea of the 'eye' seed spot-on, but monophyte 'magic' is more light-based than electricity-based. Also, perhaps you could contain the flash in a capsule of some sort.

    I'll also throw out that, while not necessary, their seeds' growth can be sped up when inside a living thing. They don't just hunt humanoids for heads. They use their victims' bodies as well.

    Now I'm torn between polishing this one up and making a new one, xenomorph-styled:
    -> corpse lying on the floor (no head, unindentifiable species)
    -> corpse starts tearing up
    -> corpse busts revealing a Monophyte

    I feel it's missing something, but i like it.

    I think it's polished enough...

    Look harder
    Read the posts above, they describe what need to be fixed.
  19. Another thing to note, they undergo metamorphosis, but I'm still coming up with ideas for that one.

    I think the fact they communicate through 'magic' should be added to the main post, as to clarify this doubt and increment chances of inclusion as a playable race, since dialogue for items has been confirmed.

    That being said, I really love this race mate! Very well written!
