    Long before I joined the forums here, I started making a fairly basic mod that replaced Quote with Chaco for the lulz (complete with a replacement for Chaco, amongst other things). It was pretty much a few applied edits to a few different spritesheets, as well as some dialogue tweaks where needed. That project got dropped, either due to losing some files or losing interest.

    HOWEVER, since I don't have a whole lot to do right now, I'm taking another shot at a project, but taking it a step or two further. I'll be replacing all humans with mimigas, and all mimigas with humans. Why? No idea! Because I can, I suppose. I don't plan on doing anything particularly fancy, since all I know how to do is edit dialogues and sprites.

    Yknow, I'll probably lose interest in this project too, but oh well.

    This idea reminds me of something from Chrono Trigger. Major spoilers ahoy!

    In one of the endings for CT, the humans are replaced with reptites and the reptites are replaced with humans. This happens when you manage to kill off the final boss without destroying the reptite race in prehistoric times.

    Well, I'm not sure why it would change, he's just switching characters and making text edits as far as I know...

    I'm assuming Sue would be a mimiga magically turned into a human.

    Spoilers ahoy, cap'n:
    I remember that ending, though my favorite is where Marle becomes part-frog, after Frog and Queen Leene get it on in 600AD. Hilarious AND kinky!

    Like Jed guessed, she'll be a mimiga magically turned human. Luckily, I already have a map sprite and faceset to work off of. I'm ESPECIALLY grateful for the faceset, I should be able to just transfer the expressions of her mimiga pics to the human one. I've done that plenty with my personal avatars, so it should be a cinch. :D


    I actually hadn't thought of that, I suppose so. Maybe I'll rip off the Ivalice universe and call it Hume Village 'cause why not.

    I have issues

    Yknow Lace, I'm half tempted to change Santa from a scardey-cat to an overly flirtatious fruitbasket just for you.

    Also: Yknow what hurts my brain? Drawing a human mask that fits over that huge mimiga head. It clearly looks fake, and in some respects I think that's a good thing, but it makes me wonder how anyone would EVER be fooled by it. I thought the mimiga mask was a pretty thing disguise, what with a human body and all, but the human mask on a mimiga body? It's just silly.

    Re: I have issues

    Yes, but I mean he's -styled- like a human/mimiga. In the original, humans are (presumably) the dominant species on the surface, meaning robots would be made in the visage of humans. Since mimigas are now in place of humans, robots would be styled like mimigas. Plus, if I didn't make the swap for Quote, the disguise would be pointless on the plantation since he would already look human.

    Unrelated: After collecting up some sample sprites of characters I need to edit, I've realized humans will be universally short, and Momorin/Kazuma/the Doctor are going to be very TALL mimigas. Hoo boy that'll be fun to work out.

    Clearly they're all dwarves since they live underground and stuff.
    It only makes sense.

    MimigaItoh is 16px tall, while Kazuma/Momorin/Doc are much taller (22px, 22px, and 32px respectively). Then again, I suppose I could just make them shorter, keeping the upper half of the 16x32 grid unused. HumanItoh is 22px tall, after all. Yeah, I'll just shorten them down to around Itoh's height.

    Jesus, the Doctor is one tall sonofabitch when you put him side by side with the others. Their foreheads are level with his chin.

    OH SHIZZLE, IS THIS A DOUBLE-POST? YOU BET YOUR SWEET BUNS IT IS, I'M SUCH A REBEL.

    Anyhow, I've been working on the base designs for characters. Here's what I have so far. Can yoooouuuu name the respective characters? (Or just click this for comparisons)
