Creating and Completing Trainers
Finishing off already-designed trainers
As well as designing your own trainers from scratch, another way of contributing is to add something for a trainer that someone else has designed.
- Sprint 2 has our priorities for trainers, although at this point there are no priorities
- If there are any entries on our list of trainers that are missing either a front sprite or an overland sprite, it would be good to have them added
Trainers all need their overland sprites - 16px wide by about 20px high (up to 24px), or 16px high for children. If they're stationary, they only need one forward-facing, one back-facing, one left-facing and one right-facing sprite. If they're going to walk (including anyone that'll battle the protagonist), they'll need an extra two for each direction.
Trainers that'll battle the protagonist also need a battle sprite - a 64 by 64 pixel sprite, facing forward and a little to the player's left (just like monster sprites).
Protagonists also need a back sprite - a 64 by 64 pixel sprite, facing away from the screen and a little to the right.
