How do I change Tux's look?

Postby TuxFan1979 » 15 Feb 2018, 16:20

How do I change the Tux's look? I have tried to add Tux from Tux Junior and it didn't work! When I did that, I messed up the whole system, then I had replace the file to the original Tux!

Does anyone know how to change his look without messing up the system? Thanks! ;)

You could change the image files. Maybe you have to adjust his hitbox when doing so. Remember to keep a back-up!

Because Tux from Tux Junior looks way better.

I don't know. Didn't have one, so never worked with one.

Which checkerboard? Can you post a screenshot?

Changing the sprite of Tux is, from a development perspective, not permitted. From what I can tell, the features we code into the game, such as being able to change sprites of badguys at random are being abused on a massive scale by certain people. Changing the sprite of Tux would only be the tip of the iceberg.

Sorry

This texture means that there isn't any texture for it. You probably named the texture wrong or placed it in the wrong directory.

Wouldn't that mean that making a mod (like changing sprites) from a development perspective also be not permitted?

Well get the image you want and replace it with tux's, but give it the same name as tux's image.

Coming from a player perspective, I feel as though changing or messing around with sprites would fall under modding the game, which isn't a bad thing at all. Some people might abuse it, sure, but just because some people abuse it, doesn't mean its a terrible thing that should be removed. Being able to mod games without worry about the devs being mad at you makes the game feel more open, and allows you to go ahead and mess with files until you find the mods that make the game play just right. For example, in TF2, your allowed to have custom huds, hitsounds, and on certain servers, weapons. This makes the game feel 10x better because it opens up the game to modders to see what they can do, and allows the game to feel a lot more personal. It isn't one of the devs that dictates what your game looks and feels like, its you, the player.
