    I do not think what you want is even possible. There can only be one animation. And the Mushroom Jackhammer needs the jackhammer motion as animation. You can't add those glowing shrooms additionally.

    I like the idea.. but you ould really fix the 1x1 pixels in your sprites. They look a little bit off..

    As I know Dennis personally I can assure you he didn't mean it like that. His english is just that bad. :sigh:
    What he actually tried to say should be something like that: "I can understand that you do not like them, please feel free to make better ones yourself and use those." I guess he will write something here later today too.

    Oh and what do you mean with weird? And which sprites? I know some would like to have them 2x2, but I wont change them. (I did most of those sprites as placeholders anyway. But Dennis liked them and does not want to replace them.) But if someone could remake them better-looking, I am sure he would gladly use them. (Just dont touch my beloved Drilltooth Shark. The one sprite I am proud of.`:passionate:)

    Oh and here a spoiler for the jackhammer update. All wood and prehardmode-ore jackhammers look like this:
    Wooden_Jackhammer.png Copper_Jackhammer.png Yes, all have 1x1 and even more than the few drills.

    Thank you very much! I compared all of them.
    I really like: Crimtane, Cactus, Spectre & also Molten! Those are just perfect.
    Nightmare is very good too! You missed one pixel tho. ;-)
    Candy is also very nice. I added the black outline (like the one from IronDrill) ChangedCandy.png to fit in with the others.

    The Shroomite Drill was our first 1x1 only experiment. You made a very good job making it more similar too the other drills!
    Last judgement will be made by Dennis tho. I hope he will like your sprites as much as I do!

    Thanks for your help!
