      When making/modifying the outline for a sprite, how do you know where to make it black vs. where to make it a dark version of the main color?
      1. Layell
        Layell
        90% of the time it's from lighting

        The other 10% is separating objects of one colour from another.

      I'm messaging you on behalf of Pokémon Celestite. Would it be alright if we used sprites from the XY Sprite Project for a Pokémon fangame? We currently have a demo release, but there are Pokemon missing. You can also check the Discord channel linked in the reddit if there are any pressing concerns. Credit will be given (we have a credits page ingame).

        A credit page like that sounds good, if you need a download link from me let me know.

        A download link would be just great. I already have a bunch I've collected already. Also, mind putting animated ones in one folder, non-animated ones in another? If it's not too much hassle, I mean.

        Because we use animate normally, but we're also making a non-animated pack for slow computers.

      Hi there Layell

      I'm doing a fangame of my own and I noticed that your Gen 6 sprite project had just what I needed. i wanted to ask if you were willing enough to give me permission to use the sprites.

      Here's a link to my forum page
      http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=361130

      Thank you

        Sure just be sure to link back in that thread and in any download readme.

        If you need a download for them all I can pass that along as well.

      I noticed that on Pokemon Showdown, there's a sprites/xyani-back/magcargo .gif file and a sprites/xyani-back/magcargo.gif file. It is remarkably minor, but the duplicate could be removed. o3o

        If you had to kill 8 pixels of height to fit BW sprites you'd do the same too.

        Zarel has yet to change the layout to fit XY sprites properly.

      Hello Layell. I've been following the X and Y spriting project and it truly looks amazing. I'd like to ask you if I'm allowed to use the kalos and mega sprites in my two pokemon fangames. Ofcourse you and your team will get full credit for these sprites, and if there's something I can do for you in return, I'll gladly do it.
      Thanks in advance for your consideration.

      With kind regards, Jephed

    Things I will do as Sprite Leader:
    -Improve 3D model rip optimization
    -Lead XY sprite project
    -Implement CAP sprites, help/create CAP sprites
    -Add icons for PS/Smogon
    -Approve your fangame to use sprites from XY Sprite Project
    -Find places that don't properly credit XY Sprites and murder the thieves

    Things I will never do as Sprite Leader:
    -Make new trainer sprites for PS
    -Make you a custom trainer sprite: drivers+, staff, and sometimes people who donate to PS get this but this doesn't mean I will make it for you, sometimes I will pass critique if you are close to approval. If you don't know me well enough, don't ask me to make you a trainer sprite
    -Approve custom trainer spirtes for Pokemon Showdown: I give advice but Zarel has final say, he is also picky because he has to waste time implementing them
    -Edit the 3D models excessively: Typhlosion won't get flames
