different doctors
« on: April 11, 2011, 12:11:40 AM »
there only seems to be a few different frames of direction for doctors' heads. as far as i can tell, they do 4 frames of direction, a 4-frame diagonal looking-at-desk-computer motion, and they move their heads while shooing in a patient into the inflator or checking temperature. they also have crazy heads but that's not even implemented yet but should be pretty easy. either way - that's not a lot of things you have to do to replace the doctors' heads, sprite-wise.

i was bored so i tried it out : most of these took ten minutes or under to do. some aren't great, but some i think work.




could things like these be introduced as new variations? of course, the doctor portraits won't match up anymore, but i think doctor variety would be cool.

I like. Different clothing for receptionists too. Hipsters to formal.

Different scrubs for nurses instead of the dress. Light blue scrubs, dark purple scrubs, teal scrubs, etc.

that's a lot more difficult. now i'm not sure, but i think that the heads are rendered differently from the body, so it's simpler to change.

even if it doesn't work that way, then it's still a lot more work to redo every body animation for a given class of employee with new clothes or clothes.

Looks good really good. In what folder are these sprites?
Or did you just take a screenshot and tried out new heads :P
I want to try recoloring the helicopter white with a red cross on it but I don't know where the file is :)

this is just a screenshot, at current there is no way to implement these i think. the hardest would probably be the yellow doctors (are they supposed to be british stereotypes of pakistanis?? it's kinda racist in a fairly nonoffensive way) since you'd have to recolor their hands.

They're meant to be asian, it's just that the color depth doesn't allow alot of realistic colors :p

And the rest of the body is different from the head.

Could you do that with the nurses, too? Black and asian nurses would be great!  ;)

I can't believe I've only just seen this- and I think this could be a real possibility for the future if the Project Owner saw this.

I love the different sprites as it definitely would seem to give a lot of variation to the game!

Kudos to the creator of these- I certainly love them!
