Hey, the shops looking pretty sparse. it could do with a few new items. Maybe some regular guns and weapons, some cars and ships etc. I'd be willing to make some of those little icons. They might be in a different style, though.

lloydSSJ4 also asked me about this via PM, and I thought it would be better to continue the discussion via this thread. He originally sent this message to me:

The prices will need to be modified a little too, to give some balance.

Also... uhhh.... What are the items for? XD

To which I replied:


The items are just there for the hell of it really. I might add more purpose to them in the future if I can come up with something. I'd have added a lot more to the shop by now if I had the time, but there's so much for me to tackle. I really do appreciate the offer but I draw every item in the shop myself, pixel by pixel, which can take a while. (As opposed to the achievements, some of which I stole icons for.)

The caster gun took ages. They'd have to be in the same distinctive pixel art style which would require a good level of pixel art experience. I'm no artist but looking at the guns should give you a good idea. In which way do you think of item prices should be modified? I think the caster gun price is reasonable. As for Hilda's grappling hook, it's at that price because I was working on something and I didn't want anyone to purchase it yet. Just temporary.

I will add more items to the shop. It'll just take a while. I also have to work on fixing forum bugs or getting people to help with that, posting threads, working on the wiki, working on the gallery, adding more ranks, working on my YouTube account with which I find members, working on Facebook with which I (mostly unsuccessfully) find members, amongst some personal projects.

However, thanks to Seth I do have a list of most of the weapons that appear in Outlaw Star. I'll add some of those and some other items when I get the chance. Any suggestions welcome.
