Rocket Building Tool

Position, size, and color circle-shaped sprites to form a vehicle that can be rotated easily

Tap and drag one of the four bars to modify a value:

Press "open" to open a file (it'll prompt the file number)
Press "save" to save at the previous location (will prompt the first time)
Press "save as" to save at a new location (it'll prompt the file number and the file type)

File type: You can save all scenes in a big file (Y), or you can save a single scene (N)

Use my rocket rotation demo to view and rotate the rockets

The center of the rocket is at X=20, Y=64

The single scene files are encoded the same as the NX sprite registers, so files are named "sprite registers" A file with multiple scenes starts with a 256 byte table followed by sprites encoded like NX's sprite registers, these files are named "sprite scenes"

One file holds a single rocket, that's not enough

You can build more than just rockets, you could also build cars

Update 3: this version has scenes but it will only export what's in the sprite registers

Update 4: The previous version was so bugged that I'm surprised it even worked, as soon as I started fixing the bugs nothing worked for a while, this version should work

Update 5: forgot to change the file name of the generated files to contain: "V2" so that the previous buggy file can be differentiated

Update 6: you can now load files from the disk and each parameter's value will light up as you edit them

Update 7: the parameters will refresh whenever you select a different sprite or change the scene

Update 8: fixed some bugs with opening and saving:
- open would always load file 7
- files with a size of 0 would cause an error

Update 9: fixed more bugs with opening and saving:
- files from the "sprite registers" type can now be detected and opened
- empty files are also detected
- saving a file to the "sprite scenes" type will now also save the scene you're currently loading

Update 10: even though copying and pasting isn't supported, you can now save one scene to the disk and load it to another scene
