Wuzzy’s Selected Graves is a collection of graves by various community members, hand-picked by me.

Included graves
39 graves are included (11 animated graves + 28 unanimated graves):

Graves with an asterisk are animated.
Most graves have been taken from this thread: Graves! additions, submissions, information.

Download and installation
This grave pack can be downloaded from my server:

If you downloaded this file, you have to put the file into:

  • GNU/Linux: ~/.hedgewars/Data
  • Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Hedgewars/Data
  • Windows: %USERPROFILE%\Hedgewars\Data

How to get your grave into the grave pack
Post in the graves thread as usual, I'll do the rest. Whenever I feel like it, I will update this grave pack. I will not include all graves and I will be pretty selective. These are my (rough) inclusion criteria:

  • Grave must not be already in Hedgewars
  • It should be more or less fit the Hedgewars graphcis style
  • It should be unique (I want to have a diverse grave pack)
  • It should be clearly visible on all backgrounds. Using a contour can help a lot
  • It should be more or less properly aligned to the floor. I don't want to have “floating” graves.
  • For gameplay reasons, it should be clearly recognizable as a grave. Graves which may be confused with other objects or graves which are barely visible will not be included
  • The author must not be against inclusion (posting in the graves thread counts as an “OK” to me)

If you want to have a particular name, either upload the grave with the correct name or write the desired name in your post. Otherwise, I just pick a name by myself.
Usually I just preserve the original name but I may change it if it not really descriptive or has already been taken.

Credits
This grave pack contains graves from CheezeMonkey, MeinCookie95, Star and Moon, TheMadCharles, rosenholz, Vatten and Wuzzy.
Most graves come from this thread: Graves! additions, submissions, information.
Full per-grave credits are in a text file inside the HWP file. You can open the HWP file with a simple unzipping utility (HWP files are just Zip files with a different file name suffix).
Graves from TheMadCharles are included and licensed under CC-BY 3.0.

Ayy thx for including my stuff! Big Grin
The Undead grave is what I'm most proud of, but I think that Zombie Hand is the most accurate grave for an undead-themed team.

And from what I'm guessing poop grave is a reference to W:A, right?

Well, not really. I was searching https://openclipart.org for “shit” and found this: https://openclipart.org/detail/206121/dont-tread-on-me. Then I have made some tweaks to make it look better. See the graves thread for SVGs, if you're interested.
Many graves which I have created are based on images from https://openclipart.org.

But yeah, I remember, W:A has a poo grave, but I really did not think about when making this grave.
