[Updated on 2/14/2022] Custom Character Template


Recommended Posts

(Moderators! If something is wrong with this, please tell me!)

Hello! I'm updating the original character template for singleplayer! (Multiplayer coming soon!)

Considering that I, and many others have had problems working with it as the game has updated, and that nobody that I could find actually made a complete character template, (just a few tutorials on how to fix the original one,) I decided to step up, and do it!

I used DragonWolfLeo's original template as a base, and am adding new stuff! as well as making it compatible with ALL DLCs! Including Hamlet!

Features:

  • Lots of comments and explanations to the best of my understanding!
  • Custom voice support!
  • Organized code!
  • Instead of the female Cat(?) assets, there's now a base character with Wilson's proportions.
  • Added new assets for the new stuff in the game! Such as, the new hands, paddle, lens, and faces!
  • Two sizes of the assets! One for older mods based on esctemplate, and another that adds more space for the art.
  • If there's something else I should add, or am missing, tell me!

How to Download:

The way you can download this template is through my Github! It's super easy and you don't need to make an account! Just press the "Code" button, and then press "Download ZIP". That's It! (Tho, I might release the template through the Releases link in the future to simplify it more.)

So, Without further delay, Here's the link: +Character Template+

Important:

While it works, It's not 100% done. So expect WAY more in the future!

If you find anything weird or buggy, tell me! Help me out by downloading it and telling me what breaks!

TO-DO:

  • Add more comments. (50%)
  • Include the voice files. (10%)
  • Make an updated tutorial for this template and how to add more stuff. (0%)
  • Organize the code. (20%)
  • Draw the base character. (0%)
  • Expand the character images to 300 x 300. (5%)
  • Add skirt, pigtails and tail. (25%)
  • Include a backwards-compatible version of the assets so people can use it to fix older mods. (0%)

Edits:

12/28/2021 - Added more info to this post. Including how far I've gotten.

2/14/2022 - Updated percentages to be a bit more accurate and added new TO-DO thing. Also fixed two crashes I accidentally left in.

Thanks for keeping the game alive :)

Of course! I still like to play the singleplayer game from time to time! And I also wanted to make a custom character for it, but it got kinda complicated after a while.

THANK YOU! I can finally fix my character's sprites in Solo Don't Starve

Could you base the file's sprite locations on the original Extended Sample Character's File proportions (I.E the 300x300 face size and 160 x 120 torso size)? I want to fix my character's sail face, sneeze face (I think there is a unique sneezing face for Don't Starve), and lens eye, however exporting my character's file onto this new template breaks it, along with any other character that has their sprite files based off of ESC.

I'm working on that actually! The only reason that the images are still Wilson sized is because I wanted to put the code out there first!

Also! If i'm not mistaken, you can just plop in the zips in the anim folder and it should work if you remove the exported folder? Try it out and tell me here!
