It's mainly because they look more like a medusa than a merman, and it just feels out of place for me (not saying the sprite is bad, it's actually quite good)I don't know, both uses a .Tmod file-extension, that my archival tools can't open, since i lack the encryption key
but the TmodLoader, doesn't seem to have the ability to open or unlock the archives it can package...
which is required to to make compatibility addon for Thorium or Calamity or any of the other Tmod's
that or the mod creators gives me the textures and sprites in a format i can work with
But also i have never used Tmods before, and currently don't have the spare time to take a deep look on it, maybe in November....
Why don't you like the Mermen?
well to be honest, i never liked the Frog-thing, it was more fitting for a monster, which it is: The Creature from Below
so i mde it more like a Naga/Medusa back before the Mermaid costume, Medusa and Lamia and Costume
but since they now all part of the game as enemies or clothing, I have been thinking of a sø Draug design (Sea Draugr - Norse Mythology) instead
just haven't gotten around to it...
I'm glad that you like it
and yes, it have taken an astounding amount of time.
Would love to see your attempt at Sea Draugrs, though!
