Emoticon Creator

In the summer of 2015, @Jestex and @VOT released the first version of their Emoticon Creator, a desktop app that allowed you to create your own custom emotes that looked like the ones made for the forums :)), :dryadgrin:, :merchantconfused:, :nursewink: etc). Sadly, with the passing of Jestex in 2017 and the disappearance of VOT, the project was all but abandoned, and the original Emoticon Creator source code was lost.

However, with the blessing of the TCF staff, and as a close friend of Jestex, I have brought this project back to life, in the form of a web-app!

It is developed in pure HTML5 and JavaScript, and should work on pretty much any platform that has a modern, up to date web browser. You can find the source code on Github here.

If you use this program to create an emote, please credit the tool by linking to this thread or the site itself! Thanks!

Note: This thread is the original one created by Jestex, which was transferred to me in order to look after it and keep download links up to date. As such, most of the early comments are in response to the original thread, which I have included in a spoiler below along with a download link to the old version.


The wait is finally over! @Jestex and @VOT present you the Emoticon Creator 2.

Features:
  • With this program you will be able to create your own TCF styled emoticons at ease without having any experience in spriting.
  • In the future it will have all of the Terraria's hairstyles and beards (Currently has 20 hairstyles and 5 beards to choose from)
  • In the future it will have all of the Terraria's hats and helmets (Currently has +20 hats)
  • In the future it will have all of the Terraria's accessories that can be place on head and it will have custom ones too. (Currently has 10)



Downloads (Latest 2.1.0)
Licencing:
  • You may not use the sprite files in any way apart from the intended use with the program.
  • You may use the sprites you make as emoticons, however do not claim that they are your own.

Nice. Even though I'm not a fan of the language, something about the fact it was made in python seems pretty cool to me (I don't see many full-gui applications in PHP, Lua or Ruby).

-- That is, not to mention the awesome images to use.

You may wanna rotate the hats a bit, they look like they are being worn by people in the hood or somethin' .

JESTEX LIKED MY POST!!!! I'M DYING OF HAPPINESS!

Whoa.. this is pretty cool! Just tried it out, and it works good!
The only problem is, there are no animated emoticons - :sigh: ;) ;( :passionate: :D
So you maybe could implement that in the future.

Keep up the good work!


EDIT: They are now in my signature! Just click the quote spoiler, and they'll be there, with credit.

Did you hate the fact that to use it you have to extract a billion files?
Did you want to tinker with it and mess around with the source code, but you don't know Python?
Did you, as a Mac user want to have an up-to-date version that works?
DID YOU WANT TO FLIP YOUR HATS?
DID YOU REQUEST ANIMATED EMOTICONS?

EMOTICON CREATOR 2.0.

COMING SOON™

Early mock-ups:
