Extended Sample Character DST1.2.4.2/SW1.3.1.1

About This File

A character mod template for Don't Starve and Don't Starve Together.

There are multiple versions.

V1.0.4 - Don't Starve and Don't Starve Reign of Giants

V1.2.4.2 - Don't Starve Together

V1.3.1 - Don't Starve Shipwrecked

The full tutorial can be found here.

Features:

  • Basic coding for a character mod
  • All sprites and symbols to build a character
  • Extended drawing areas for custom art
  • Reign of Giants, Shipwrecked, and Don't Starve Together versions

This requires Don't Starve Mod Tools to autocompile .png files that are modified.
The .scml is built in a way that you can use Spriter (included with Don't Starve Mod Tools) to preview the changes you make. The .scml file is not intended to be changed itself, and changes may not correctly reflect how it appears in-game.
A folder of cleared sprites has been included to easily remove unwanted parts from your character.

Why is that when hats are worn with this template/mod, the hair does not disappear? The hats also seem to sit very high up on the head. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

I messed up on the artwork, so does the headbase and headbase_Hat suppose to have no hair at all drawn on them at all? Where do I draw hair? She has long hair that has a long strain infront of her. I am so confused.

added the mod and it seems to partially work.  Added the one from steam workshop but under the sample character it seems to be blank

Hello!

Where can I read names of emotes?

At least short names, e.g.: face-23 - yawn, face-31 - insomnia, etc.

Will be better if there are descriptions about where faces are used.

Thanks in advance!

hi there! I just want to thank you so much for this amazing mod template, it's been super helpful, and I couldn't have made my Alphys mod without it!! I am having troubles getting the custom ghost to work, though... Upon death, the ghost is completely invisible! Here's a link to the mod, I hope you can help me resolve this issue :(

Somewhere exist ths sample character mod which contains standart characters with normal sprite proportions? This mod is great, but when I started to create my own sprites I face a problem with proportions of an images, pivots, and same in creating the headbase_hat sprite because where is no line to cut.
Thanks in advance!

Will there be a male version of this? I'm trying to make a male one and it seems the 'skirt' applies to female only. And there's about 5 files for the male one. (Direction, movement and shock.)

@Mobbstar thing is, making the skirt invisible makes the lower body transparent when wearing clothing, which is why I'm seeing if there's a way to add a skirt slot or just another template (I added a 5th png and added to Spriter but that didn't seem to do anything of course < >)

Ehh.... did soneone face the problem with front hair sprite in this mod? I wrote a bug report some time ago, but I think that a problem may be also in mod.
Can anyone help?

Can you please help me. How to install this or any other character to my Don't Starve Together? 

What "it" said! The template filemodthingy doesn't work ingame when it coems to DST. Do not know what's wrong, but I can't seem to run the DST version with my DST. Why is this? Anyone has a working solution?

I've tried to resolve this on my own several times to no avail. I've changed the old PNGs to make a new sprite, updated it and everything with the mod tools, but every time I load up my game and select the character, their overworld sprite is the exact same. I've double checked, and the textures from the old sprite aren't even in the mod files. Also, Spriter shows my character exactly how I want him to, but the in-game sprite always reverts back to the one seen above. What do I do??

I can change everything about the character but it itself, I have reviewed the video and did not do anything different as introduce my character in the game?
