    Hello! This is my first Starbound content. I haven't done spritework in a few years, having done many mods for Cortex Command.

    This will be my WIP log of my Golden Sun content for Starbound. I'm obsessed with Golden Sun. I'll be bold and attempt to do all 8 original Golden Sun characters, though animations are tedious and soul crushing, so I might just do a few. In addition I'll be doing the 4 Djinn as pets.

    Starting with Felix for the characters, and the Venus Djinn for the pets.


    Golden Sun: The Broken Seal:

    Isaac Progress: [CHARACTER REFERENCE]

    Garet Progress: [CHARACTER REFERENCE]

    Ivan Progress: [CHARACTER REFERENCE]


    Golden Sun: The Lost Agel:

    Felix Progress: [CHARACTER REFERENCE]

    Piers Progress: [CHARACTER REFERENCE]

    Venus Djinn Progress:

    Trying to find a "master animation list" is proving difficult. I'm not even sure how Starbound handles the parts of a character from sprite to game.

    Judging from the gameplay videos, it seems the heads and maybe even arms are handled separately from the body? I can't imagine each sprite is implemented into the game as a full piece, as that wouldn't make sense for when a character is walking/running while talking or holding a sword, etc. Is there any "from game" example or template of a character sprite sheet that's been released that I could go off of?

    Excellent, makes me want to play golden sun.
    How long did these take to make?

    That makes sense to me, i mean with all the procedural generated content.

    Depends. Animations take longer, but are essentially paint by numbers once the main sprite is done.

    The Djinn took me about an hour each to get into a regular plain base sprite, and from there iterations and animations take longer depending. I'm a little rusty on my spritwork; I haven't done any in some time.

    Keep up the good work! And please also create Saturos, Menardi and Alex in the same quality as you did with Mia, Isaac, Felix and Jenna so far, I would be really happy about that. :love:

    Hell yes Mia + 2 Mercury Djinni

    This game series took me way back to classic old-school RPGs, while improving upon all the failures of its predecessors. Huge bonus points if you manage to mod-in special attacks for any number of the special weapons from the games, like have a giant sword plummet into the ground each time you use the Gaia Blade.
  19. LowestFormOfWit

    LowestFormOfWit Pangalactic Porcupine

    Condensed the weapon section.
    Optimized all weapons to under 13 colours.
    Added Frost Wand.
  20. Pizzarugi

    Pizzarugi Scruffy Nerf-Herder

    This mod deserves all of my yes.

    LFoW, do you also have plans to try and get some of the mobs/bosses into it? I'd love to see Star Magician (and his minions) and Dullahan.
