The Sprite List

List compiled by Troid92


If you’re going to sprite anything on these lists, be sure to do your research and include everything accurately for the final version of your sheet. So don’t hand in a finished burrower that doesn’t burrow. Also, this is a list of all the objects and creatures we need sprited, not a list of all the separate sheets we need. (group things together if you want, in other words)

Note that the creatures section has been recently updated and is in a different format than the sections that follow it. Also note that everything exclusive to the frigate has been left off this list.

The creatures list was last updated: July 21, 2013

The status of each creature is reported as a list of past contributions by author name, formatted as follows:

Comma separation = distinct versions.
Plus sign separation = collaboration on the same version.

Bold = Finished for now. Even if there is more work needed, or an eventual overhaul, save it for later.
Italics = Incomplete but has potential. Please ask for more information before starting a new version.
Red = Lost. There is little we can do about it at this point.
Normal = Not going to be used in the final product, but we’ll hang onto it for reference.

DISCLAIMER: These categories are very subjective and were decided by Troid92.
Feel free to ask for further history, opinions, interpretations, stories for any of these resources.
If an author’s name appears more than once in the same list, they made multiple distinct versions.

Uh, yeah, the thing is, half of the things that are marked as available are either done or in progress. We may have a general idea of what is or isn’t, but anyone else won’t, so what’s the point of posting it outside of the workplace? What’s the point of posting it at all?

So that we can:
A.) Sort through what we have and label appropriately (hopefully soon)
B.) Remove the note at the top of the topic
C.) Use this topic as a checklist for spriters who wish to join the team

And the reason behind posting it outside the Workplace before things are labeled correctly is to urge us to do so quickly.

Well let’s see…

Blastcap - done (Or was an exploding animation ever made?)
Tangle weed - done.
Sap Sac - done.
Geemer - done.
Zoomer - done.
War wasp - done, but too big. =P
War wasp hive - done, and I worked really hard on it!
Eyon - done.
Plazmite - 'couldn’t even tell you what a Plazmite is at this point. <_<;
Reaper vine - done.
Venom weed - done.
Incinerator Drone - done.
Pulse bombu - done.
Burrower - done.
Puffer - done.
Triclops - done.
Scatter bombu - done…
Baby Sheegoth - done.

What kind of drug were you on when you compiled this list? Eyebrow raise

I only compiled the items on the list. Blame Daz for the label problems. :stuck_out_tongue: <_<;;

Also, go ahead and edit the lists to make them more accurate.

Oh, what nerve!

Yeah, I will… just not right now. <_<

I know that alot more sprites than that are completed (Like 072 stated), but If I’ve been keen to stick around this project for a year, I might as well do SOMETHING for it. Are their any creatures you’re SURE haven’t been done?

Most urgent:

  • charge beam charging sprite
  • charge beam charged sprite ( no need for particle effects, I can do that with code)

Alright, I skimmed through the sprites DF, BlackSands, and CFX posted (as well as 072’s and Dazzy’s word for some) and updated the lists a bunch. I don’t have the spriters for most of them (since they weren’t on the sheets), so I used my faulty memory to fill in some and left the rest as unknown. You guys’ll have to help out there. Also, I know there are more power-ups and misc. sprites that were done, so that’ll have to be fixed, too.

But I’d say the list is good enough to be used for sign-ups for now. Go ahead and begin spriting, folks! :smiley:

Blastcap was done by Bok Choi
Venom and Tangle weed were done by Najls
Plazmite isn’t done, is it?
Sap Sac is done, can’t remember who did it, but it was awesome.
Reaper Vine was done by Lady Ridley, couldn’t tell you if the quality is good enough though, haven’t seen them in a while, but they were good at the time.
I started the Plated Beetle, but it’s open now.
Incinerator Drone was done by Najls
Bok Choi did the Baby Sheegoth, it’s done IIRC.
Puffer was done by Sloth
Magmoor was done by Bok Choi (And I made them bigger after he dissapeared)
Triclops was done by Illy
Defense Turrets done by me
Bombus both done, by me, and another version of one of them was made by Banjo, which we can’t really use unless he comes back and does the other ones to fit the style (Yeah right.)
Sloth started the Sheegoth
Metroids by MH
Oh wait, it was the Plated Puffer that Sloth did? Nevermid the puffer thing then.
You can scrap the Glider…
Hunter Metroids were done by Lady Ridley, but again, not sure about the quality.
Fission Metroids were done by MH/Me/Tim

Plazmites are the little flying light source bugs the Chozo Ruins. There’s a two-sprite sheet in the zip DF posted. Looks finished enough.

Eh, they’re okay. The aqua reapers are better, I’d say, though both could do with a remake. (I’m assuming since the sheets and sprites are so similar that they were both made by LR)

I’ll go ahead and update the sheets with the new info.

Edit: Updated.

That Plazmite sucks. <_<


The bombus are done!

And the Stone Toad is kinda crappy. :stuck_out_tongue:

Plazmite and Stone Toad: Labeled as in progress.
Bombus: Labeled as done.

Any other wishes you have will have to be my command tomorrow, master. >_>
I’m done for the night.

I think that’s good for the Creatures. I don’t even WANT to go through the “Other Objects”. <_<;

Heh, Troid, you beat me to it. I was working on a post exactly like this. Got it finished tonight and when I went to post it, this is waiting for me. :O_O: :confused:

Ah well. Nice to see this issue being tackled. :smiley:

My notes on the list match pretty well with yours; so that’s a good sign.

Here are a few additions:

I think it’d be a good idea to have a marker for stuff that’s partially done, but is open for work. Some items are multiple indavidual things grouped together; some might be finished and great, but the others are still need to be done (Chozo Statues for example). Also some incomplete sheets are good work that would be nice to use, but the original spriter probably isn’t coming back to finish them, or they may be busy working on other sheets and are willing to relinquish a two year old claim to someone else who would like to finish up the sheet; the new spriter would have the option of working off of what’s already there or starting a new sheet from scratch (eg: 072’s Plated Beetle).


Metroid = It’s mostly complete, but needs a dieing animation.

Hunter Metroid = Same deal as above.

Mega Turret = I’d say this is done.


Might want to add “Frigate in Orbit” as a catagory.


Add “Phazon Beam”. Also, it looks pretty complete (phazonshootanimation39uv.gif, in DF’s sprite post).

Other objects:

Add “HUD Stuff (weapon icons, visor icons, font, text window, health,…)”. Done.
Add “Pause Menu Stuff (Samus image, menu icons,…)”. Done?
Add “Enemy Scan Images”. We could just use the in game sprites, so this one is a low priority.
Add “Missile Stations”. These are complete, I think.

Storage Boxes = Did we get these done? I thought a couple months before the death of SCU someone posted a complete set of these; though I guess we might have to leave it as unfinshed until we can find the file.

Chozo Statues = We got a few of these done.

Force Fields (of all colors) = Partially done. Don’t know who.

Stasis/Cordite Casing Tanks (of all sizes and shapes) = Partially done. Don’t know who.

Plasma Processing Pipes = (magmoordiantubez3xn.gif, I think this is in CFX’s sprite post) Is this it?

Ventelation Shaft Fans = (fanzfinale8rf.gif, I think this is in CFX’s sprite post) Is this it?

The Metroid death animation is just a cloud of dust, so that can probably just be a programmed particle effect instead of sprites. I didn’t include anything unique to the Frigate in space on the list, because that’s all pretty organized and done. Anything from there that is used in the crashed Frigate I also didn’t include. Power-ups/collectibles is for the little icons that you grab to obtain the item. Phazon Suit and Phazon Beam don’t have that.

I don’t really know if HUD, pause menu, and scan images could be included on the list. They’re always being redesigned or given different ideas, and they’re such a high priority that they’re always done or being worked on again. So I dunno.

Missile stations are already on the list, but I’ll put them as done. I remember the storage boxes being completed, but yeah, no sheet. I could only find one Chozo statue sheet, even thought I remember Sloth made one and there were others. Force fields and stasis tanks I’ll keep open until we find the sheets. “magmoordiantubez3xn.gif” is the lava-sucking machines. “fanzfinale8rf.gif” is too small and at a different angle–I think it’s just a generic pirate vent used in the Frigate and other places.

There’s still a lot of stuff in the other objects section that needs to be labeled. But, seeing as I don’t know where the sheets are, I’m leaving them as unfinished until we find them. That and I’m lazy/busy.

I would create a new category for completed or WIP sheets that need to be redone or re-claimed, but I don’t think it would be up to me to make those decisions by myself. We’ll have to start a discussion on that.

Should we maybe go through them all one by one to see what we can really mark as ‘completely finished’?

Yeah. We need to figure out exactly where we are with the resources; sprites being the big one.

Also, if anyone else has any sprites chilling on their comp, please post 'em. You don’t have to hunt through it yourself to figure out what we may need, just toss the whole thing on Rapidshare (or whatever) and we can figure out what’s what.

Does anyone remember how we found the files before, via Google cash? Maybe we can do that again. I just don’t quite remember what the method was.

you should also post the size of the samus sprite so we can know what size to make them.

Samus = 4 tiles.
Tile = 16 pixels.
