Hopefully more people will make 3D assets, so I can use it as an opportunity to learn Unity better. Grin

I haven't seen this answered anywhere: is it ok to take sprite sheets and, say, change the death pink to an alpha channel, or a different transparency color?

I believe that's perfectly fine. Or else how would you use them?

Just wanted to make sure! Also, I needed an excuse to post something.

Edit: ...since the original post says you are not to modify assets at all.

I doubt Derek meant going so far as not removing bright pink. It wouldn't make sense.

If you look at the announcement, the "no changes" rule has the exception "unless it's done during runtime."

So it would be perfectly permissible to load your image, alphify, mangle, texture-map, rotate, shear, warp, melt, merge, morph, recolor, etc., etc., etc. any asset as long as your program is doing it at runtime, and the assets on disk are unchanged.

Phantasmal idea. I'll be joining part two for sure. Also, I welcome myself back to the site.

The only one we really need is that one of Derek's head surrounded by giant rotating genitalia. Everything else would be kind of redundant.  Grin

But the question is whether you can do basic stuff like converting pink to transparency before runtime.

I don't feel that's against the spirit of the competition: you're still using the same assets and nobody playing the game would be able to tell the difference. And it's significantly more convenient than writing half a dozen different image loading routines.

Also, I would assume that with MMF2 I can take a spritesheet and put the frames into an active object, or split a tileset into a series of backdrop objects.

As long as you dont change the presentation of the assets anything should be fine I think.

In the README thread Derek said he thought it was okay to change the format of the assets. I know I'd rather spend my time making games than learning how to edit every frame of every image at runtime just to get it on the screen properly Shrug

Yeah, no need to be so strict with the rules. Some things are just common sense.

And besides, who'd know the difference?

I personally plan on using ALL assets.

I was thinking (just thinking, nothing's set!) about something similar, but I don't think I'd manage to incorporate the 3D assets.

I assume that unless a set of assets is more or less complete it's useless?

P.S. It'd be cool to have a separate topic logo for 3d and 2d assets.

No, because you can use assets from as many different contributors as you like; backgrounds from one, player-character sprites from another, enemies from a third, etc...

Of course, if someone's uploaded a bunch of nice sprites but doesn't do any animations for them or anything (for example), they're less likely to get used, but I'm expecting (hoping) that the programmers in the second phase will be using the available assets as creatively as possible to get the most out of them. Yeah, it's going to make for some pretty fuggly mash-ups, but I think that's kind of the point.
