Spiral Arms II - Free Community Sprite Resources
« on: August 04, 2017, 10:23:06 AM »

This thread is meant to provide artists with a place to put free-to-use art assets they wish for the Starsector community.

If people provide direct links to images, I am willing to host them, basically forever, so that your work's not lost over time.

I would like this collection of pixel-art to stay online for everybody for as long as possible, so I'm willing to provide the bandwidth.

Policy Regarding Copyright Concerns And AI Art Tools
Please keep this thread drama-free. This is where artists choose to share their work, and you should respect the time they've invested. As for me, I've spent hours and money maintaining this thread's contents, making this work available years after it was posted, and I do so because I think it's helpful to the community.

With some known exceptions (noteably, DrakonST and some HELMUT reworks) these works are free to use in Starsector mods, without permission (but credit is always appreciated!).

1. Many of the works here are kitbashes of David's original work on Starsector, and are therefore derivative works to be used for modding purposes only. If you're looking through this thread for work to use outside of Starsector, you'll want to contact the artists cited and Alex / David. Don't assume that any work here is 100% original to the artist, or that it may be used freely outside this modding scene. I hate to have to spell that out so bluntly, but we've had a few cases where work here was appropriated by outside parties, which is not the intent.

2. If you are kitbashing using another person's artwork (say, you're combining art from two mods and a Vanilla sprite, because it felt cool) please get explicit permission from the original authors before submitting work here.  The objective of the thread is to provide as much free-of-copyright-concerns art as we can, so that modders have a vast resource to draw upon; when people feel like their hard work has been stolen, it leads to Drama, and this is supposed to be a Drama-free thread.

3. If anybody sees work here that they feel is theirs, report it to me via PM. This may sometimes mean a delay of weeks, or even months, before I can resolve it for you. In an emergency (say, somebody parks the entire content of a mod here without asking), ask for Moderation to intervene.

4. AI-generated works are permitted here, so long as they've been turned into sprites for people to use in their mods. This does not mean that you may use AI to infringe upon other people's copyrights, but original works made with AI technologies are permitted here.

5. Drama in the thread will not be tolerated. I've maintained this thread for years now, at my own expense in time and money. If you have a problem with a poster here, either PM me directly or talk to Moderation about it, if it's extreme or an emergency. Do not post here to complain, criticize, etc. Flame-wars started in this thread will be met with a prompt report to Moderation; if that doesn't fix the problems, the thread will be closed.




If any artists, mod developers etc., see any issues or need corrections made to the main collection here, please PM me and I'll get it straightened out ASAP.

If notified of new works via PM, I'll update artists' portfolios in the OP's as time permits.

Special Section:  Medikohl
...because without these, we'd never have started this collection...

Thanks for putting my sprites up there @xenoargh!  ;D

Quick suggestion though: Might want to put spoilers around things. I'd put them around each users' sprites, so they're nicely cataloged by creator.

I probably will at some point, but the Forum doesn't appear to support loading images in Spoilers only if opened (or labeled Spoilers, for that matter) so I'll probably show 3-4 ships in a set for each artist or something.

One of the things that wasn't ideal about the old thread was that art released on say, Page 15 wasn't even noticed by the vast majority of modders, because it wasn't immediately visible and they didn't keep paging through the thread (naturally, but it's still a problem with this kind of archive).  I'd like to strike a better balance, where modders can see, "hey, there's a lot of Stuff here" rather than presuming that if it's not on the first page, it doesn't exist.  So the first page has to be pretty busy, but I agree, spoilering the biggest collections is probably going to be necessary just to cut down on clutter; it's a little overwhelming already, and I think about 50% of it isn't even up yet.

Right now I'm just getting everything cataloged and linked; I'll clean up the messes and clean up the presentation later on :)

Ah, fair enough then. Just found it kinda dreary scrolling all the way up and down to get to stuff. XD But whatever makes more sense to you.

*posted Protonus' old shame memories*

Thanks for posting mine as well. I didn't think I managed to get this far with Red when Blue is weighing on me before, but now might actually be the time to bring it back to a new light... hopefully.

I've posted these planet surfaces once before, somewhere, but I think these are probably very useful to a lot of people, so here are the links again:

http://freebitmaps.blogspot.nl/2010/10/
http://freebitmaps.blogspot.nl/2010/11/
http://freebitmaps.blogspot.nl/2010/12/

They're free to use, but be sure to respect the creator's wishes, e.g. give credit to Duael Designs LLC and Robert Stein. :)

I actually emailed the artist about that; I'd like a comprehensive set of planetary art up at some point :)

All Medikohl's sprites from StarSector Plus have been uploaded, with permission from Medikohl.  Yay, that makes the collection pretty complete!
