Let the rambling begin! So... I'm taking a stab at making my own mod, the first I've ever done. I've got this weird attachment to the idea of slime people (I blame Space Station 13), so after playing with the /sbg/ race mod for a while (which is a fine mod), then not really being content with the little bit of extra bulk the Golgians have due to being based on the slime costume set, I decided to do up my own set of sprites, starting with a human, and recoloring it similarly to the slime costume, but with adjustments since the costume's a little bigger in the head and torso. I know squat about modding, but thankfully there's DrPvtSkittles' template. I've gone through renaming the files, slightly adjusting the color of some ship objects (perhaps I'll actually replace the ship one day, or at least the ship object sprites), completing the body sprites (need more palettes though, I copied various liquids to start with), made up a sort of racial trait buff (sorta between thinking of an SS13 slime and a D&D ooze, more SS13 and its poison/electric immunities, but no idea how to immunize against specific damage types), and... I've made a grand total of one hairstyle, based on myself somewhat (though my hair isn't that long). I tried to make the feet look like what one typically sees in artwork of slime people, including a little bit when walking or running. The race's playable, and I haven't had any crashes of any sort, so that's good to know, but I should probably stop being lazy and try to complete the thing n' upload it already. I'm trying to get ideas of hairstyles people would like to see, but none of the messenger channels I've spoken in have shown any real interest, so... maybe someone here can throw me some thoughts, or images to replicate? If you're in the mood, I'd be up for seeing what you might come up with yourself, and naturally include your name in a contributor list, though I'm a competent spriter as well, so... images of what you'd like will do, too. It'd also be nice to have a custom ship, but... I have no idea how I'd start that, and it seems like a lot to think about. I thought I'd look at the ship mods (noting the ones that allow inclusion in compilations of course), but none of them are really what I'm after. I've got thoughts of a rather large workspace that has ample room for... say... a Frackin' Universe science lab, and a gardening area when one wants to plant a variety of stuff. I don't know if I'll ever start on a ship any time soon. I might just leave it to people to pick whatever ship mod they want to use with it, though a thematically-appropriate ship would be interesting. ...Maybe there's a slime— er... slim chance there's an intrigued artist out there? Er... Ah, also, I'm going to replace the "Underwear" color setting with "Eye Color". I think people would appreciate being able to choose the color themselves... and I'm gonna see what I can look up about making a variant of at least the Spike Sphere tech so it looks more racially appropriate. If it was possible for it to match skin color, that'd be awesome, but I'm expecting it not to.
