This would have been nice to have. A little earlier before I just used the pre-created full sprite atlases from MLP:Online.

This is great for creating many different pony sprite but it misses things that would make it usable for me:
One, it does not generate directions other than "to the right".
Two, it does not allow many options. Such as, which folder to save the files to, or to save them all in a single texture atlas rather then separately. But that could be handled by other tools - this would benefit from a commandline interface.

But those features would take a long time for a project that very few would use. 

Anyway, nice work.

If you mean that it doesn't generate a sprite pointing left, you can easily flip the image. You mean pointing down/up though, right? That would be a bit of a problem.
The custom cutiemark maker would get in the way a bit there. I could theoretically make it work, but it would take a lot of time.

And yeah, I tried to have it so you could choose a folder, but it wasn't working for some reason. I also tried to make it one big texture, but that also hit a snag. Gamemaker probably wasn't the best program to make this in.


EDIT: Actually, I think I might add different directions, and be able to choose stuff like you said. It sounds like a fun challenge

I think you should make it check if the sprite is for a unicorn or a pegasus or an earth pony.
I found spritesheets for flying after making an earth pony, something pretty useless, and it probably will speed up the creation.

Besides this, it's great and very useful.

something to consider.

isometric sprites. might need a whole different build for it but there should be as much demand for it.

Exclamation oh god this is a great tool! this will surely boost up the development of games

Actually, I kept the flying animation in for my game. I'm planning on having a flying spell like the one from sonic rainboom.

And I'm working on an isometric build.

Alright, the isometric sprite maker is up! Redownload it and it'll be there.

I did it in chunks this time so it renders faster. There's only a few animations I can add, I'll probably have them available by this time tomorrow.

The old version is still there in case you don't need isometric sprites.

that was blisteringly fast.

Haha, it took a solid 2 hours. Anyways, I'm not really available to work on this til Tuesday so the full spritesheet won't be ready til then.
