Another one? Do you have a program to do this? I think it would be pretty simple. Multiply ALL offests by the amount you resized the sprites.


Nope, all done by hand. Though when I do the AtomGroups, I wish I'd written a program.

I found Brobdingnagian in the Dictionary/Thesaurus.

And you missed out on the most important part, DudeGuy,

The people of Brobdingnag are described as giants who are as tall as a church steeple and whose stride is ten yards.

Lol, is this one stronger than the Massive clone? That thing is so weak it's ridiculous.
Also, I swear the smallest 'giant' clone is almost invincible!

I made the Giant clone Invincible because I didn't have any test actors.

I included into the pack because I didn't have the original.

And does the Calculator that comes with windows count as a program?
Or can I still say "by hand" because it sucks so much?
Anyway, most of the offsets were small that I did in my head.

And the Foot AtomGroups were completely in my head.
They are really easy once you understand the underlying pattern.

Guess what? TRIPLE ALSO! It is fairly strong. But try to keep the jetpacks away from the face.

And try not to snipe your arm off because of the puny guns. I've done it.

Make a gun as big as the Brobdingnagian clone.

Also, add the tremendus stupendus, and "Death"

Hey Zalo, now that you know so much about atom groups, mind writing up a guide? I'm not sure what they even do let alone how to make my own...

Basic AtomGroup Primer.

An Atom group is basically the collision model for an object.
Except it are made out of dots. Or "Atoms".

All Atoms Group's are in the code are the X and Y values for
those dots in relation to the center 0,0. (Usually the sprite offset.)

I once made a 30x30 Pixel Box out of AtomGroups. That, and the feet are based on Progression.

Code:
Offset = Vector
   X = -5
   Y = -6

For example, this is the first Atom in the Foot AtomGroup.

Code:
Offset = Vector
   X = -5
   Y = -5

In the next one the Y Offset dropped by 1, but X offset stayed the same. It does this all the way to 0.

BUT WAIT! What happens after it reaches 0? Then the X Offset starts dropping until that too is 0.

Now, if I want to make the foot bigger, lets say... Twice as big...
Code:
Offset = Vector
   X = -10
   Y = -12

And that follows the same pattern of falling as the original did. Until you get to 0.

As for the Box, you'll have to figure that out yourself.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If anybody has anything to add, good.

If anybody wants to point out that I'm an utterly
and completly wrong, whatever. This explanation has served me well.
