Title: [0.95a] Furry Portrait Pack v1.9
Post by: theDragn on April 03, 2021, 05:43:20 PM
Furry Portrait Pack

We've got, what, four anime portrait packs? Time for something different.

This mod adds 86 a bunch of assorted furry and scalie portraits. A few are AI-generated, but most are sourced from members of the Starsector community.
Seriously, have you ever seen the replies to Alex's twitter posts? Furries everywhere.

Download here.

(https://raw.githubusercontent.com/theDragn/FurryPortraitPack/main/Furry%20Portrait%20Pack/promo.png)
All images are used with permission.

Are you a furry? Do you have art you'd like in this pack?
Spoiler
Join the Unofficial Starsector Discord (https://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=11488.0) and send theDragn#0580 a pm. (Just PM me, you don't need to send a friend request.)
Rules:
- You must own, or otherwise have full permission to distribute and modify, any art you want me to include.
- The art must be entirely SFW, or cropped to be unarguably SFW. (I don't mind getting sent NSFW things for cropping, but I'm definitely not putting obvious porn crops in here.)
- The art must be in color, and at least decent. No B&W sketches.
- Characters with entirely black fur or scales won't show up on a black background.
- Must have at least a head, neck, and shoulders, or something to make it not look like a floating head.
- Should be painted, not pixel art. Pixel art is okay if the cropped area is at least 128x128.
- I prefer getting full-res images and then editing them down, rather than you sending me pre-edited stuff.
- Credit will be anonymous unless you specifically request otherwise.

I thought we already had VIC.

Eh. Not a fan of how the backlighting doesn't fit with existing portraits, but I suppose that's the problem with using existing assets instead of custom-making something.

While I agree that it'd be ideal to have vanilla-styled portraits, it'd be a ton of work (and require actual art skills, of which I have relatively little) to adjust the lighting. Regardless, this was never really intended to be immersive.

Honestly, I was looking for portrait packs the day before this released, and thought "This game has been out forever, I'm surprised there isn't a furry/pony portrait pack." I mean we got anime and cybermodding, biomodification and perhaps even xenos aren't far off. Are furries considered blasphemous by the Luddic Church/Path?

Perhaps it's fate, and perhaps, If you do think this heresy, you can erase the files that make them show up in your preferred factions, and have your own little crusade.

How well do these fit the aesthetic? Kinda did them in a rush so I'm not too sure if I missed anything. Eh, now that I'm looking at it the backlighting's probably too strong. Oh well.

There have been a few, but they have been... let's say less than suitable for posting here on the forums. Plus most of the ones I knew were just cropped shots of art and pretty much never had the artist's or character owner's permission. (Which is a problem with many portrait packs) This pack is good to post here because it is SFW AND it has the permission of everyone involved

Imo they're really great. For something done in a rush they're pretty darn good - I'd only recommend making them a little darker. The backlights look very solid tho

My personal opinion, it's the vanilla style that doesn't fit.  I'd rather replace or remove every single vanilla portrait than have mods trying to follow that awful artstyle.  Even this pack, heretical as it is, is preferable to that.

Those are really good! Might be rushed to you, but it looks good to me, and it actually follows the backlighting style, which is very neat. With your permission, I'll add em in.

I've seen one floating around, and immediately recognized art that I knew they didn't have permission to distribute, along with obvious porn crops. I'm trying to actually follow the rules with this one.

Of all the portrait packs I've felt compelled to comment on, since I don't use portrait packs, this is the only one that's attempted to get permission to use the art it's adding to the game, and it's not adding anything to factions without asking - that's a couple steps above the baseline as far as good citizenship goes around here.

So I'd rather keep the furries and jettison some of the haters, please and thank you.

The furry community is particularly rabid (heh) about proper use- art theft is a very serious thing there. Definitely didn't want to get crucified over it.

Yep, this is what I used for the first 10 or so portraits. It usually takes a lot of tweaking (or searching) to find something that you can use directly, and they're all kind of vague dog-cat-fox things, but it was good enough to get an initial batch of portraits.

Update to 1.2, adding 7 new portraits and upgrading 3 existing ones.

You might note that several of the new ones and updated ones share an artstyle- they're all from Lennoxicon. He does commissions for a pretty reasonable price, so I'm giving him a shoutout here for anyone who's looking to get a portrait done. Hit him up on discord at Lennoxicon#5347. You can see some examples of his stuff on the first page of the thread.

Go to data/world/factions. In it is a bunch of files labeled with a faction that tell that faction what portraits it can use. Deleting every faction but player.faction will stop every other faction from using those portraits. I think deleting player.faction stop you from using those portraits as your character. Pretty sure if you start a colony you'll start seeing the portraits pop up in the wild, but it will stop everything else.
