Mod Idea: Custom Paperdolls
For the longest time I never played with a male Wizard that wasn't dual or multi-classed to something else, so I was quite surprised when i finally decided to use the animation set and discovered that my Wizards paperdoll had a beard. Apparently all wizards have beards. This got me really wanting a seperate wizard paperdoll thatI could access in eekeeper that didn't have a beard. And then I began to wonder, why haven't more people been making custom paperdolls. I know its all but impossible to make new human and demihuman in-map sprites because the original 3d assets are lost, but it would seem relatively easy for someone artistically inclined (unlike myself) to create new paperdolls or at least edit the old ones in photoshop. A beardless wizard is just one of the ideas; What about custom sprites for NPCs? What if you edited a custom version of the fighter sprite for Minsc that actually made him bald and used the hair color option for his tatoo, what about giving Anomen, Keldorn, Valygar, Yoshimo, and Sarevok their beards, what about giving Mazzy and Valygar their braids, what about giving Cernd his feather, what about giving Jan his goggles, What about giving Rasaad, Haer'Dalis, Aerie, and Cernd their tattoos?
