  2. no, if you have an idea it's important to figure it out, even if it can't be done

    I may be a bit out of my depth here. I've been trying to figure out how to remove shadows from items when they're placed on furniture. The shadows are just a bit too strong and for something I'm trying to do it looks awful. I thought at first they were a part of the item sprites themselves, but when I went to edit them I realized this isn't the case.

    I figured out that they use the regular shadow.xnb when placed (ie: on a table). Is there a simple way to edit this so that the shadow does not appear on placed items ONLY?

    I've never done any type of game coding before, but I feel like if someone could even just help me find the bit of code that makes this happen so that I can take a look at it, I'd feel better.

    Honestly, for what I'm trying to do I'm sure it's not worth the effort, but... I'm special and I need things to look just right ;P In any case, part of me just needs to know if it CAN be done.

      Removing shadows just on furniture is doable, but would require some heavy-handed manipulations, for a first C# project I would not recommend it.
