This creator will allow you to put different pieces of various weapons together to create a kind of template for a weapon. It's mostly meant for inspiration as there are no colors, but if you're a little creative and confident enough with an editing program you can create some fun results. If nothing else they can at least serve as a helpful visual aid when describing a weapon to somebody else, like in a D&D game for example.
I kept the weapons white on purpose. Not only does this make it easier for people who want to edit them, but I feel like this also helps with opening up to more creative possibilities. I could've colored all the blades in a metal color for example, but there are way more possibilities and some people might not see them when the focus is on that metal color.
I've colored the same sword three times to further illustrate my point (see below).
It's very straight forward. Simply click on the tabs for the parts you need and on the images to use the specific part you want. Click on the same icon again to remove it or click on the 'clear all' button to clear the entire canvas.
I hope to eventually add more weapons like spears, crossbows, guns and much more. However, these things take time to create so I have no idea when I'll get around to adding those.
Light sabers probably won't be a part of this, in large due to likely copyright conflicts.
Saving and loading
It's possible to save up to 4 weapons, you can do so by simply clicking the save buttons at the bottom of the creator. This will save the weapon with all the pieces locally in your browser. This only works if you don't use incognito mode and only if you use a modern browser (so no IE7 for example). You can close your browser after you've clicked save, it'll still be there when you open it again.
When you want to load a weapon, simply click the corresponding load button and it'll put all the pieces you saved back in place.
Saving the image
If you wish to save the weapon you've created all you have to do is click the 'Turn into image' button and an image will appear below it that looks exactly like what you've created. The only difference being that this is a single image, rather than a whole lot of separate images. Simply right click it, select 'save as' and name it what you wish. That's all there is to it.
As mentioned, this tool is meant mostly as a source of inspiration, but the images can be used for non-commercial projects as well, as long as it isn't another weapon creator or other similar piece of work. However, I cannot allow you to use the images for commercial projects, but feel free to contact me if you do want to use it commercially, we can probably work something out.
At the end of the day this site, which I put a lot of time into, is still a means to create an income for myself, so I do have to protect some assets.
