Umm, I'm currently attempting the third red+tan unit's gun. (Not so great at guns, so this is taking me longer than I'd like it to.) :augh:

It's a bit smudgy and in future I will ink the drawing before scanning. Also I try to draw it bit bigger so the details will not disappear and bit more dynamic pose

If you think this is ok, could you provide somesort of unit tree and possible wishlist about details and such. There's also possibility to add insignia to the guys. So any ideas for those?

Just snatch the insignias from my avatar, the white one is the Terradorian one and red is Zederian.

I will whip up a unit tree for you tomorrow; bit late now.

Thanks for coming through, that Soldier looks AWESOME, and will spice up the campaigns by a longshot.

EDIT: Got bored, drew one up for you.

Recruit--------->Trooper-->Veteran Soldier-->Terrador's Finest
-------------------------->SpecOps---------->SpecOps Elite---->SpecOps Lieutenant
-------------------------->Shotgunner
-------------------------->Flamethrower----->Pyro


Marksman-------->Sniper

Grenadier------->Heavy Weapons Expert

Medic------------->Battlefield Medic
------------------>Repair Satellite

Work on these first (They are the soldiers) and then, if you wish, you can either move on to Zederians, or work on the ships, assuming you wish. Thanks again for the help. If you need anything, such as the base unit sprites, tell me. :)

Alright, everyone, after three crashes and one reformat, I have the next race completed (picture wise) I will be coding these buggers as soon as possible.

(NOTE: I believe the robot forces are made by Zerovirus, but the picture I took them from was from the Internet Meme Era, so I asked both, and they gave me the OK.)

I would really like to have something like this. I haven't really followed the process of the unit sprites making, so it is quite hard to find out what image is the final version and of what unit it is. I can't put too much time to this, so I really wouldn't like to spent half of it for searching and guessing. :augh:

If you give me the unit tree I'll see what I can come up with.
I'm a little busy at the moment so any work I do will probably be a bit slow unfortunately. :)

The Mutant? I took a break from him when I started my last units. Since then I've mainly been working on my composing skills. His right hind-leg was bugging me, so I took a break. If you want me to I can try to finish him. :) If I can't improve him, your best bet would be to ask someone with more experience in the pixel department to do this particular job. Hopefully I will be able to post something within the next few days...

I'm here, but only lurking. I've been on a spontaneous week and a half long vacation after a week long music camp. I haven't moved on...

Could you have any list of things to do in order or priority? That would help me figure out where I'm needed.

My internet's giving me all sorts of problems right now, so I'm not around a whole lot these days (although I would be if possible :annoyed: :cry: ), but in the event that I'm able to access the web in the next couple days, expect great things.™

In other words, I'll have some work to show. :wink:

Alright everyone, let's get to work.

Project One: Get the new race coded and created (Me)

Project Two: Overhaul time on the following:

All units, not just Terradorians, should have team color somewhere, thanks to TWoT's support for Multiplayer now.

Terradorians
Terrador's Finest (Telaron)
Shotgunner
Captain
Commander
Fleet Commander
Recruit
Possible new unit after Heavy Weapons Specialist
Tanks need an overhaul; they where not originally planned as permanent sprites
All units need attack animations; priority targets are to replace the attack animations that are using old, outdated sprites
Ships are alright, might be seeing a few in the future. Attack animations would be nice, but are not needed.
Flagship needs a TOTAL overhaul. Was done by frankenstining ships together to make a massive gunship. Hell, it isn't even straight!
Recruit Animation (After reviewing everything, I am thinking Major's whirlwind that he made for the undead would be the best style for the recruit animation; if there is any way to make it look more scifi-like and white/transparent we would be set)


Zederians
We need stationary defenses for the Zederians, this requires entire new sprites.
Zederian Tanks need an overhaul. They are very poorly done, and were not expected as permanent sprites, like the Terradorian tanks
Zederian ship are alright, save for the Flagship, which needs an overhaul
Might see new ships coming in soon- the Zederian air force has been lacking compared to the Terradorian fleet choices.
Need Toxin Mutant completed, the two legs stance was interesting and a personal favorite


Xylash
The Xylash need to look the same, which means total new sprites for the following units:
Scout
Infector
Drone
Devourer
Consumer
Brute
Behemoth
Grub, Hivelord, Omega (These three need to be something similar to an Overmind-type unit from Starcraft. Needs legs though, it still has the power to move on its own of course.)
Also, the Xylash airforce is lacking immensely. Anyone know how to make organic ships? Like the Zerg's from Starcraft?

Birilaz Conglomerate
These units appear fine and should hold out. After I finish coding I will tell of any needs such as missing units.

Portraits
Courtesy of SFault, we shall have some awesome portraits to use for the campaigns. SFault, for now, we need to work on the campaigns we already have, and as the Xylash will (hopefully) be getting a makeover soon, the terradorians should be the first project portrait-wise. Attached is the soldier tree, excluding all aircraft and mechanical units.

Terrain
Currently, we are in need of someone to make a few types of terrain that are not found anywhere I can find. this includes:
Metal Walls
Metal Platforms (Space Station wise)
Crashed Ships (Lowest Priority, just something I need for a campaign)
Biodome (Need this desperately for terraforming planets)
MOAR VARIETIES OF GROUND. (We currently only have moon ground, we need more varitey than that. Maybe even some red dirt or etc.)

Alright, people, I know this is a lot, but if we can get all this going, we will have that much more of a polished addon.
Attachments
All Xylash should be similar to this unit; same skin color, same style. Preferably little to no mechanical use.

Is this near the required style for anything?
Is there something specific you want me to do? :?:
