Unit Skins by an owl


#1

This thread will be a compilation of all skins that i have created for Duelyst units. I will be updating this post everytime that a new skin is added to it. For all who wish to know how to use these skins instructions will be provided below. Currently i am simply playing around with the pixel art and swapping minion color palettes.


Instructions for units: Desktop > User > .counterplay > duelyst > v.1.79.2 (this will vary on updates) > resources > app > src > resources > units > replace the image file of the unit you want.
Instructions for Artifact & Spells: Desktop > User > .counterplay > duelyst > n1.7.92 > resources > app > src > resources > icon > replace the image file of the spell or artifact that you want
Instruction for Steam users:
Program Files (or Program Files x86 if you have it) ->
-> Steam -> Steam Apps -> Common -> Duelyst ->
-> resources -> app -> src -> resources -> icons

Would really love for CPG to come through with the palette swap vanities for each faction. Hell, they could even do them by set. When Denizens and/or Bloodborn is absorbed into the core set, it would be a perfect time to do “Core Palette-Swap” and the “Expansion Palette-Swap” with a dust refund for the cards that you bought the palette swap for, but got absorbed into the core set. Especially if the palette-swaps weren’t strictly the colors of each card, but minor details too (especially in the Generals and Legendaries) :smiley:


#3

quick modding question
Is it possible to swap sprites of two different things?

For example, if i like astral crusader’s sprite but i want to use dancing blades, could i swap them so that my dancing blades shows as astral crusader?


#4

You can do it but i dont know how @galaxydueler , what do you mean exactly, like if they offered little skins or color swaps for each unit each season to spice up the units?


#5

One of the promises on the kickstarter were vanity palette swaps for all of the units, corresponding to a palette swap of their General. While I think the indivdual vanities like Frostfire Tiger and Keeper of the Value are the right way to go with Neutral minions, it wouldn’t be obscene to make 2-3 palette swaps of faction minions and generals for each faction as a vanity purchasable. But, at the same time, they could split it by sets of faction units perfectly reasonably too because of the sheer work that goes into it. But if they made each of the palettes change details too, it would be all the more special to sink the necessary dust/USD into palette swapping your squads.

-Literally clicked every “show details” arrow
-All except one of them contains no content

Nice thread.
Or maybe it’s just Emperor’s New Clothes story

anyway new skin


#8

@owlington
I can’t express how much I LOVE that we can import custom skins! Thank you for doing this!!


#9

Added a complete faction reskin for Vetruvian (more or less) including generals and artifacts as well.


#10

It’s possible, you must change the name of the skin you want to use and the file .plist (and rename all the call instance into it, better with an example): example

Skin1.png
Skin1.plist

And

Skintoswap.png
Skintoswap.plist

  • MAKE A COPY OF THE FILES SO IF YOU MAKE SOMETHING WRONG YOU CAN CHANGE BACK EASILY

  • take “skin1” .plist and .png and rename them to “Skintoswap”

  • open the file now called skintoswap.plist with a text editor since it’s essentially a .txt (blocnotes, open office, you call it)

  • in the file you will see some scary things, don’t worry: go on to where it’s written “skin.png” and rename all of them to “skintoswap.png” (all text editor should have the function “rename all”)

  • do the same thing with the true “skintoswap” (rename all to “skin1”)

  • open the game and enjoy


#11

The instructions were weird, I think that is because I use steam.

For those who use steam, I it’s

Program Files (or Program Files x86 if you have it) ->
-> Steam -> Steam Apps -> Common -> Duelyst ->
-> resources -> app -> src -> resources -> icons

@owlington might want to copy/paste these instructions for steam users in a Hide Details section.


#12

Thanks, i actually didnt know it was possible to do on steam


#13

Np. What I’m curious about now is, if I want to do a skin, there seems to be a png file AND quicktime one. Uncertain about anything here.

Can I just leave the quicktime one alone and replace the png?


#14

Only edit the png file, the plist or “quicktime” one relates to animation i believe, so yeah just edit the png one for visual changes


#15

Aight, thx as well :slight_smile:


#16

No you can’t leave the .plist alone if you change the .png

This is because the plist says how large are the frame in pixel and how much of them there are in the animation:

if you swap the animation without touching the .plist the new .png NEEDS to have the exact number of frames and frame’s pixel dimensions of the “old” one, in the majority of cases it wont work.


#17

Yeah thats why i just recolor and i dont add additional pixels to the frames, because changing a .plist seems like something i wont have fun doing, the .plist is only necessary if you plan on adding accesories to the unit as opposed to simply coloring


#18

Not working well ._., I just replaced the file of Sajj by yours (good thing I made a copy of the original)


#19

a good thing to note it that posting fine images such as skins on forums often results in the quality or background of the image dropping, dont worry thats normal. First time i had to get privately messaged the image in order for it to work properly


#20

So we can’t get directly what you posted here because the image is modified ?

I think I found something more, the size changed, it went to 690 x 345 instead of the original.

More editing of this message : Thanks Owlington I did not see that download button x)
