I wouldn't go too far when the forums aren't at their most active.

Theme is "Balanced Actor".

What about complicated lua and fancy ini stuff? Are those allowed this time?

i'm not the actual person that says yes or no, but my gut tells me since they didn't say anything about it that its a yes it is allowed.. of course me saying will then force the person to say no.

Further details: actor mustn't be more complicated than a vanilla actor.

complicated
/ˈkɒmplɪkeɪtɪd/

adjective
    1. consisting of many interconnecting parts or elements; intricate.

Not more complicated than vanilla actors; Equal amount of advanced/unique elements, i.e. AI, jetpacks, wounds, etc.

  • The entry should use the same AI as vanilla actors.
  • The entry should not have more advanced .lua than the average vanilla actors. (consider the Ronin head variation as a limit)
  • Some vanilla actors have unique jetpack sprites, but rarely different effects. Same should apply to the entry.
  • Most, if not all vanilla actors use material values and wounds located in Base.rte, and so should the entry.

Can we give this actor a weapon or gun or something, just for theme's sake, not for extra consideration?

sure FINE, weapons are allowed for aesthetic purposes, but they should not be judged nor presented as a part of it.

EDIT: UNLESS the actor is classed as ACrab. In that case all previous rules apply to the weapon.

What about Size?

The size of the actor should not be larger or extremely smaller compared to the average vanilla actor. If you remember the Coalition brain bot, that's a limit.

All questions from now on will refer to common sense.

I really want to, but since I can't sprite at all, and actors are basically a huge sprite job. I have a silly idea in mind though, I'll try to see if I can come up with enough time to do it.
