Guide to contributing to the game
This is more of an index to contributing to the game. Note that your solutions might not be used and it is possible for them to even be ridiculed. Please do not take offense and try to get as much constructive criticism out of it as you can. If your work does get put in, than congratulations!!
I hope this covers everything, if not, join the [Community irc channel for developers] and ask there.
So you have an idea and don't know where to post it? Simple... check if it's already been submitted and if it hasn't, post it here
Icons, glyphs, sprites, animations... images
For an overview on spriting see our Guide to spriting.
You have what it takes to make a 32x32 pixel image actually look like something? We're always on the lookout for good spriters. There are sprite request threads on these forums: SS13 Ideas and development, NTS Ideas and feedback and NTS Development and resources
There's actually a whole forum dedicated to it here.
