We've recently had the idea of creating a new kind of race, a massive race (literally), in Steven Universe there are characters called diamonds, we wish to make a playable race version for Starbound. This will be our first attempt ever at creating anything in Starbound, so what we need is generally some software for mac. (currently using an online pixel art studio to draw (barely), but can't find anything for coding software). These are also notes for what we plan to do later. The first thing we have decided on is the size of the race, which is massive, approx. 89 by 26 pixels, would go larger but we don't think any area at all would work then. Meaning we will have to create custom codes for movement, item use, a completely custom ship, certainly new techs, and anything else in game. as current characters are 29 pixels tall this will become a challenge. Our current plans include: The race: (possible cross-communication with gems race maker for working together) - several hair types - masculine and feminine body type, the actual race has no male counterpart - colours of body - colours of gems, placements as well (body and head) Stats(normal size): (possible FR communication for stats/balancing) - more damage, more health - moderate energy boost - less defense, low speed, moderate jump hight (not jumping higher than their own height) - highly resistant to most things Stats(shrunk by tech): - even more damage, more speed, very high jump (jump approx. 10 blocks high) - moderate defense boost - less energy - very low health - lose most resistances new mechanics: - a crawl mode so that diamonds can fit through normal doors, if they choose to go like that - a gun scaling method to make regular guns work for the massive race. - new animations to use normal devices/furniture/etc new tech: - a tech to shrink to normal character size, (takes a few seconds to transform in a very vulnerable state) - a tech to pick up and throw npcs or other players A custom ship: - needs to be larger to fit new character size - new sail interface appearance (a pearl in a chair) Custom furniture: - massive size, massive furniture What we would like is tips for software for mac, tips for character creation (pixel art, etc.), or any coding tips (examples, areas to point out) for the above mentioned plans.
