Isn't it also discouraged because people were changing the background in places like the cave in the undine hut and that place up northwest with the lsw to make it easier? That and changing the image of iron ore to a red spot to make ore whoring easier

Well, yes, that was an issue too, for the tools that you could paste-and-replace with. Not all of them had that functionality, though.

But back on topic: I'm generally in favour of alternate character icons, including those borrowed from Arindal. However, and it's been said by others, I don't think this one is high enough calibre yet. I'd like to see it touched up before it finds its way to our world.
The obstacle is the path.

For the record: yes, I have my own tool; no, you can't have it.

Unless you're a GM, in which case I'll give you a copy just as soon as you add the alternate Zo sprite.

If we push for a new Zo sprite to be added to CL, let's have a better one than this. Especially since this isn't really a variation, just an update that is better in a few ways, but worse in more ways. There are some Zo poses that are not so great right now, so a good update wouldn't hurt.

Agreed. I think this version of the zo is pretty ugly.

I think it was sor that had a thinner lighter looking zo design that looks better than this.

While we're on the topic of new sprites, how about that unarmed version of the new male fen?

If they can keep bumping the thread about adding even more sprites for Fen, I'm not going to feel guilty about bumping the thread asking for Zo to be given any choice at all.
:D

Bump.

(I'm guessing the GMs who play Fens greatly outnumber the GMs who play Zo, huh?)

As the only female Zo healer currently in the lands, I demand that my butt not look so damn weird.

Female Fen Rangers, I hear.

But, before I add a new icon permanently, I'd like for it to be as good as a quality as we can get with this technology. So, if other players think it needs to be touched up, perhaps one of them could help you out. And, I'd rather add the pair, one for armed and one for unarmed, in any event.

Well, not you of course. Those other GMs. You know who I'm talking about.

Okay, counterpoint: I think the Arindal sprite is far more attractive than the 'Popeye' one I was saddled with the last time the Zo sprite was silently and unilaterally 'tweaked' (I love the new cry pose, but not enough to overlook the fact that my character is suddenly suffering from Volkmann’s ischemic contracture). And my new 23 bestest friends who voted 'yes' seem to be agreeing with me, neh?

I voted yes(I think more icons the better) but I think it needs to be touched up and no I don't want to :)
Arr, pirates rule!

Old school. My butt didn't look weird back then.
