Skypest looks so good! The actor is a bit tricky but with your rotations now things will be more easy, thanks a bunch Nisaba :love

Since there aren't much monsters left, we have that rotation for Dopefish, BlueBird and then Lindsey, so I thought better post her frames and see what happens

I wonder... not that it's necessary but maybe other people might be interested in some kind of a time-lapse or Yotube video of you creating the sprites. Would be interesting to see how you are doing this magic :)

By the way: Credit where credit is due! I just implemented the PCKF signs on all three maps :)

Great. Thanks for implementing them. Should we add rotations for the signs as well? Or have you placed them directly infront of walls?

For most of the props, we use 1-sided rotations, because that simply works more convincing, so no rotations needed at all :)

And here I am finally, with probably my last requests for this thread: BlueBird and those missing rotations for DopeFish.
