Hey Slendermando, just wanted to greet ya since I see you on here just about every time I'm on here. I see you're good with finding transparent images, are you a dataminer? I'm new to the wiki editing scene and enjoy adding stuff, but I'm not sure where to find a lot of things. I've managed to find a number of prefabs in the data but that's about it lol
Hello ! :) Nice to meet you, yes I see you too a lot these times!
Oh yes I use a specific tool to build the images :) it's Matt Tex Tool, it allows you to get a .png image out of a .TeX file. After that, you just have to build it piece by piece using your favorite image editor, and that's it! I usually use a screenshot of the object so this way I can perfectly align the .png pieces with the real thing... It's quite tedious, I know some people use another way (I think it involves 3 additional softwares), which is faster but the quality is greatly reduced
You can get the TeX files in "...\common\DS\data\anim"
It was on the wiki about Peagawk, but apparently someone already fixed it, I had put a frozen photo but I could not get it on the right of your bug image, and also did not appear an option to delete it, so I had left it without know what to do
And if you have tips on fixing this problem or a tutorial to learn how to mess around better, I'd love to know. I was planning to do the same with all the hamlet mobs (frozen, dead, animated, or even bugs)
Oh ok I know what you wanted to do now. And in fact it's very simple ^^
What you wanted to do, actually, was adding a new image to the gallery of the page. To do this, I edit directly in the source code in general. If an image is already present on the page, it will be simple for you to add a new one, all you have to do is to copy the line that refers to the first image, past it just below, and change infos to put yours instead (be careful, the image name is case-sensitive)
And if there is no gallery at all on the page for the moment, you can create one by writing this in the source code :
But I personnaly leart by simply copy/pasting some source codes of other, more complete pages, to add complicate things like Tables or Gallery...
It's very simple when you get the hang of it, but for your first times I would recommand you to do the same, just copy-paste some other codes from other pages, and just change it to put your informations :) very easy!
And personaly, I directly build them by exporting the TeX files in Png format (via Matt's Tex Tool) and then editing the resulting file in PhotoShop :) it's more tedious, and takes a lot of time, but in the end the quality is much better ! It's litteraly the choice of everyone
I uploaded the original exported file. The current one you replaced it with was heavily edited by me, and it looks pretty bad up close, hence me previously replacing it with the pixelated version, which is how Krane + Spriter export those sprites
Mine is not blurier. It is bigger. Your old image looks just like mine when put at the same size. Some mob sprite sheets are just small by themselves. This is why some exported pngs look so blurry regardless. Now what I don't understand, is why you went out of your way to merge the heavily edited version of mine with your old one, and still kept the cropped out foot. If you build it piece by piece, why did you leave the foot out in the first place? Plus the whole leg is backwards. This was literally what made me come out of retirement from doing pngs, lol. I know how hard it is to build the images manually just for the sake of saving quality, because that's what I used to do, but if its not to be right, why even bother going the long way?
Maan, one week later and you still haven't digest it, so you come with a lot of arguments, because it's still a concern for you? My god I didn't even think about this anymore, yes you're right the feet are bad, I just noticed it earlier when comparing to the real Rhinocebro, but if you think you can do better why is it a problem? Why don't you just download the last version, rebuild the feet, repost it and that's it! No problem man
I don't really fluent in english and struggle at the rules of editing but i want to share some information i discovered in this wikia.Is it okay to edit it directly? or i just post it for u in this message wall? i saw u manage my dung beetle and i really appreciates it
For all these questions I think an administrator could answer you better than me :) But if you have informations, I don't see why you could not edit directly ! ^_^ if you are not very confident it's not a problem, someone will always be there to correct or add things you missed !
In fact there is not just one island, there are two others, and the Palace is on one of those. And to go there, you have to go through the Ruins found in the Deep Rainforest Biome. You will see, there are 2 Ruins in this Biome, one will get you to one Island, one will get you to the other ! And that's it! ^^
Welcome to Don't Starve Wiki, Slendermando! Thanks for your edit in Tuber.
Wait, I forgot to tell you...
New to wiki? You can learn how to edit in the help pages. Before high-risk editing, remember to practice in the Sandbox and make sure to read and follow the Manual of Style. Also don't break the Rules!
Have any questions? Feel free to leave a message to our admins / custodians. We also have an active forum to share your experience.
Uploading tips! If you want to improve the current version of an image, please upload a new version of the image, instead of uploading another image with a different name.
Editing tips! Keep strategy and tip sections to the minimum, you can create a guide page for comprehensive instructions instead. Also, please always use third person pronouns ("the player", "they", etc.) in articles (guides can be exceptions) to keep articles neutral and less instructional.
Feel free to leave a message on my message wall if you have any inquiry. Thanks, and we hope you can enjoy your editing in Don't Starve game Wiki!
