One great way to do skeletal dinosaurs of almost any type is just to research photos or pictures of their skeletons online, and then modify them into Dom3 sprites--not that difficult! There are literally *thousands* of these online, often in multiple poses. I could probably churn out a reasonable picture of a raptor in 4 hours or less, using this method.

It's how I basicly do all my sprites so I'll have to agree there, the 2nd sprite usually is harder since you'll have to change stuff yourself and it just doesn't look as good as the original (when I do it at least)

The only thing is that bones for you skeletal raptor (small fragile stuff) might get mashed when you need a relative small sprite and resize the image (size 3 I'm guessing so about 64x64 would be the size to use but probably the creature would have to be a bit smaller).

Anyway I'd really try it that way, if you don't succeed I would be willing to try and steal on of the net for you

Yeah, it was my main problem. Furthermore, I was busy doing other stuff (sprites for heroes, mainly), and lately I lack... concentration ... So, I will wait a bit before trying it again.

Woe is Cantabira! So close and yet so far.

It's a shame he never put up the attack sprites, or I'd do the mod for him.

This looks awesome! I cringe my dribblers to you! When can I download! Why am I yelling! I don't know!

Seriously though, I can't wait to play them.


Holy bad posters, Batman! I didn't notice this was a dead thread! And I still seem to be yelling!

Well, I'm back...

A few things have gone awry in my life, in the past two years, but I somehow managed to get through this, and I am back to work on my mods.

Actually, I'm working mainly on Cantabira, but also doing and testing a few changes to Shangri La & Shambalha (=EA Shangri La).

Thanks to Pyg and Globu for having cast "Revive Mod" (I will send you back your Death gems, folks ), and I have to give a look at the changes they have made. I don't know if I will keep it all, but their work is worthy of all my attention (and all my thanks for correcting my many mistakes & typos !), so I don't want to rush things...

So, Cantabira will probably go first, then Shangri La (both EA & MA, La will wait a bit). I'm also working on another mod, about cannibals, jungles, headhunters and dark magics, with inspirations mainly from Malay, Indonesian & Filipino myths, as well as R.E. Howard, L. Sprague de Camp or H.P. Lovecraft.

I actually have done something in that line you might be intrested in. I had a early version of UWGIM with EA R'lyeh having that kind of coastal recruits. I dropped them out in a recent update, so their sprites are currently unused. If you want them, you can have them. You can see some of them in the middle of this image.

You can get the .tga's by downloading the UWGIM mod, they are still in the graphic folder of that mod (called OEM).
