Basically the title of the thread, I am looking for anything, anyone has in mind, there are quite a few graphics we can replace without trouble, and it would please me to no end to have a few more unique things about the patch, and Item Icons seem to be a good way to make that Work.

I'm not sure if your completely done on the equipable items already, but maybe you could make glove type weapons utilizing the bracer and power wrist icons and letting the character sprites just punch with them.

Maybe use the Angel Ring's icon to make headbands or circlets.

Eh heh... I suppose I wasn't clear enough, I was referring to brand new Icons, using the method I described in another thread. We can replace any Icon and use that for anything we wish to replace, for instance... Ninja Sword's can all be replaced, along with all Katana, Cloths, Harps, many Item Icons have outlived their usefulness, therefore replacing them appears to be the best in order.

I think replacing Ninja Swords with a genre of Greatswords or Maces would be cool.

I dislike that idea divide cause the ninja swords are awesome weapons over the daggers ........but maces would be kinda cool.

Could someone post the dimensions a weapon/clothing takes up?

Yep, I'll do that.

Done, took a bit of time, nor is it perfect... but it should give an inkling for what can be done.



Also interesting idea ShadedOne, what did you have in mind?

A little test I used using FFTA Icons, they seem to fit the 17x17 pixels fairly well.

Oh yes, I had no trouble with putting them in, my problem was, making them look halfway decent in Actual palettes, which is a relatively difficult task, did you have any way to make that easier by chance?

Do they get 16 colors like character sprites?

That they do, 16 colors exact, just we only have false previews from other palettes, and haven't extracted the true palettes for the Icons. Therefore making messes like...



This was once a Parade Helmet believe it or not! The color's are vague, and when ported initially they are unrecognizable.

Well, it's been a long time since I've given this thread use, but to show my two new icons I have planned for cards.

Hmm... perhaps some of our up and coming spriters would like a look at this thread? It takes me such a long time to make anything that looks halfway decent, perhaps you fellows could cook something up? Make any icon to your hearts content (using the palette recognition from...) This Thread Anything within those bounds would be great. If you have any further questions about it, don't hesitate to ask.

What do you need icons for?

EDIT: I mean, which items need new icons?

Well... hmm... I'm pretty sure that 0-9.5 deal is never used by the game, I've deleted it before and nothing happened. Of course I might be wrong... But this file for whatever reason contains Orbonne Monastery so... yeah. I would like a few new icons, mainly for Claws, Bec De Corbins, Whips, Relics (Relics are special case, I'll get to that later), Bullets, Grimoires, and Materia. and any other ideas one may have for the pre-thought weapon types. These include...

Daggers, Swords, Spell Blades, , Rods, Staves, Crossbows, Longbows, Books, Spears, Shields, Hats, Helms, Clothes, Armor, Robes, Any Accessory one may want to take a crack at.

Now Relics, I would like a unique icon for each of them, since they all represent different items.


Weathered Sword
Guardian's Wish (Shield)
Blissful Ignorance (Book)
Glass Axe
Star Chart (Scroll)
Rusty Claws
Bent Pocket Watch (Pocket Watch)
Feng Shui Scrolls
Advisor's Signet (Badge)
Orb of Minwu (A comma shaped orb)


I apologize if this is an overload, but it's best to take one's time with these sort of things. I attempted to do it myself but it didn't go so well...
