    I am so~ in.
    Maybe you should add a rule that states: TGA/BLP files mandatory.
    Otherwise, how can you test the cursor ingame? And mind you, that is essential.
    Cursors look very differently on a plain canvas and when actually used.

    You can modify everything you see, but the function should be maintained.
    So: a kitten won't be the best way of displaying the action of scrolling.

    So by the way, are we supposed to create custom cursors for every cursor, or just any/one cursor?

    You can replace every cursor ingame anyway, so no need to create 4 race-specific ones.
    One is more than sufficient.

    Just to be sure :
    I guess people can't edit the cursor's model, since it's a 2D art contest, right?

    Let's get this show on the road.
    First WIP: Very messy, might turn into something though.
    No, let's dump this...

    Second WIP: potential Psi Blade?

    Third WIP: No Psi Blade, some shield thingy instead.

    Fourth WIP: current version in-game. Satisfying result for the moment, will have to tweak some stuff though to make this look better.
    That's pretty much the hardest part: polishing the whole thing. :V
    And we still have to create the "grab item" thingy...

    Fifth WIP: Whole new design. I asked a good friend and he told me the previous one lacked a real theme, which is completely true.
    So, here's a new one, which I am really happy with. :D
