A downloadable asset pack

Hey everyoneヾ(o✪‿✪o)シ !

Ækashics here! 
The illustrator slime behind Ækashics Librarium!

A few years ago, I set out with the mission of creating a free comprehensive library of static and animated battlers available for usage in any game engine and any game project!

Over 900+ free releases, with all assets considered, I feel that mission was a success!

This pack contains all 874 static battlers, 72 dragonbones format skeletal battlers, 39 RPG MAKER MV SV Animated format battlers and 94 Frontview 3-frame map sprites released from Librarium's inception back in December 2016 all the way to January 2019 with Dryad Yggdrasil's release!

Upon reaching those milestones, I decided that in order to move forward and create higher quality, more versatile, resource rich and condensed content, I would wrap up the free library and  focus on continuing the next phase of battlers, projects and releases through  Librarium's Patreon and my Itchi.io from this point onwards!

Librarium’s amazing patreon community provided key support during the development of the massive free library of static and animated battlers you can find on www.akashics.moe !

During that time and through many evolutions both in quality and content, and also with the insight gained through the quest to further reward those who believed in the Librarium project as a whole,  Librarium’s patreon gradually evolved into more of a  service which supplies developers with new and original exclusive character/creature designs and related assets oriented for RPG development such as 4-Direction map sprites, bust portraits and more on a weekly basis, rather than just a few extras delivered on top of the public releases!

You can always find the first phase Librarium sets here on itch and also on my main site, www.akashics.moe ! 

All future sets will be released on Patreon, and advertised here and on akashics.moe! 

Thanks for the ride so far, The best is yet to come!

Can I use these assets to create a shooting game? Also, can I post it on this my page?

Hello!

Yes you can use Librarium assets for a shootin game,

however for your second questionI would kindly ask you not to reupload and repost the ultra bundle to other websites, and link to this page instead :) 

Deleted 6 days ago

thanks for the reply 

Now that the game is complete, I'll report it. I am grateful

https://kirinpg13.itch.io/monster-shooting

Fantastic!!! beautiful.

Thanks for the support!

So, wait. This contains EVERY Librarium monster so far?

(1 edit)

Ah nope!

Those would be the Librarium Batch Libraries available over here:

https://aekashics.itch.io/librarium-batch-libraries

They are essentially double the size of the ultra pack nowadays!

(1 edit)

Wow... You should combine them all into like an Insanepack or something XD I mean like if that's not what the batch library is I guess.

Hello Aekashic! Can I use your images for comercial games ?

(+1)

Yup! 

All Librarium releases and assets are allowed for comemrcial usage, you can find the ToU in depth over here:

http://www.akashics.moe/terms-of-use/

Hello Aekashic! I am a member of you on patreon and I develped a free game named 'Monster Rebirth' which use the animated battlers from you.

It's a game with roguelike dungeon and monster fusion system and unlimited battlers system.

you can use monster fusion whice make two monsters into a different one with their skills.

You can fight the battle with all of your monster. 

Once you defeat a monster it will join your party but once a monster you own is defeated it is gone for good.

But the computer which is under english operation system maybe can't load this game because some bgms 's name are Japanese. So I uploaded a fixed version and I hope you like it. Thanks again.  

The original one:

https://valhalla9386.itch.io/monster-rebirth

The english fixed one:

https://valhalla9386.itch.io/monster-rebirth-english-version

Very nice Valhall! Congratulations!

I will check it out!

Quick Question, big fan of your work I love these battlers. Can these be 

used in MZ, I'm genuinely wondering.

yes they can!
Librarium assets are not tied to any engine in particular as they are either png format, assembled png sheets or .json exports !

Question, would it allowed to use these in written commercial works? Proper attribution will be given. If not, I do understand. 

(+1)

Yes you can!

This also applies to battlers which have been released over at patreon!

great work, I used this asset in my game:

https://alpha-dragon.itch.io/evil-cards .

hope you like it.

excellent work!

This is awesome

Thanks!

amazing work i will use your size for my own games again you art its great and i will credit you in my own games

Much appreciated, thank you! Best of luck!

Hey Aekashics,

Love your work, been subscribed to your patreon for quite some months now. I'm creating a Rogue-lite clicker game called Hero Clicker using your pack as enemies/summons.

I already credited you for your work whenever people ask about it also will put you in the credits!


Great work love it and thanks!

Thanks for the support and interest! I am currently pumping out all the  content from previous months along the new stuff so definitely stay tuned!

Hello, love your battlers they are quite beautiful and well made.

Any chance you plan on making some agents with gun and things like that for scifi

games? Currently making one and would scoop that one up as i do most of your assests.  image of a static battler that i was asking about is below. Trying to do it myself in dragon bones but love your art style more.

Hey Sp00nman! Librarium has a suggestion system over at patreon where you can list out a suggestion like this, even at the lowest pledge tier, $1 per update cycle, you can make monster suggestions!

One question... can they be resized to better for my game ?, static and animated??

(1 edit) (+1)

yes you can with the notepad 

<Attack animation: 7>

<DragonBone Settings>

Battler: *your battlers name*

Scalex: -0.8

Scaley: 0.8

Width: 435

Height: 605

(+1)

Is that in the note section on the enemy making screen?

(+1)

simply answer YES 👍

(+1)

Nice, nice. Luckily this is in MZ so I'll have to test

A wonderful collection of materials.

Please use it for the game I'm making.

Let us know when you complete it!

(+1)

omg perfect!

Thanks!

Very useful for my prototyping with Godot (using a customized version of the Open RPG Template). A simple file name search allows me to find fitting sprites very fast.

Most are monsters but I reused some sprites for party members, just flipping them horizontally. I’m just using the static sprites right now, as it’s enough for prototyping and gives me more choices of art.

Glad to have helped out in that process!

wow that's a lot of art! with a very nice style! ♥

(+1)

Thank you!

 A question, I plan to create a rpg game and I would like to know what I have to put in the credit, only Aekashics or I put https://aekashics.itch.io/.

Either would be okay!

(+2)

I have a question for this, is this pack commissionable for any games we make?

Commissionable as in usable? BEcause if so, the answer is yes!

Used some of the monsters for my clicker project. draykelogan.itch.io/click-click-doom

Awesome images.

nice clickker!

Hello there Aekashics, I would like to talk to you about potentially paying you to add more battlers from my imagination to your collection.  I'm sure you are fairly busy but, if you are curious please email me at blankswhoisthat@yahoo thank you for your time :)

Hello.

First let me tell you that I love your work :) Good job you done.

I am an old fan of browser games, and I want to build one. I dont find anything about this in ToS , where it say we can use in any game engine and the game I will build is practically a site that will run in browser. (like gladiatus, ogame, bitefight, torn etc if you know )

It is allowed to use librarium pack for this? https://aekashics.itch.io/aekashics-librarium-librarium-static-batch-megapack

Also I want to buy the NPC packs for same project ( https://aekashics.itch.io/librarium-npc-character-pack-i and other paid packs )

Of course I will also join on Patreon.

Best Regards and good luck

Hello Kosmin!

You can use Librarium assets for any target platform, or develop in any engine of your choice!

Thanks for your interest and support!

Will all of these work for RPGM MV or just the Format Animated Battlers?

All should work!

Grateful for your world class art. I hope that this will inspire you, want to know your opinion https://itch.io/t/1192469/suicide-prevention-with-games . My attempt is still in Alpha:  https://mind-blowing-games.itch.io/jojoish-coin-shooter (SO HAPPY about sprites, still cannot believe that it is for free even in commercial games).

its actually very nice! I like this type of games :)

I also apologize for the late reply!

Better late than never. As I wrote in the post, at some point in your artist journey, you more think about MEANINGFUL impact of your art. Sadly making QUALITATIVE these type of games is an uphill battle (especially as a hobbyist). In my exp, even cooperating with mental health NGO there comes time, when they do not have enough resources and must be discontinued the project or at least freeze for a few months. And without them there is not enough expertise to make the content, effectively test it. And although slowly the industry changes, including more mental health games, the industry (especially publishers) will not truly embrace it until the breakthrough hit (like "Slay the spire" did for rogue like deck builders). Sorry for the rant, but when the system vastly enables escapism and suppresses solving the underlying problem, you know that it is a bad system. So called "whales" and how they are used is a great example.

is there any possible way to get your tilesets separately? I've been looking for them

Hello!

Currently they only exist as part of Librarium Patreon reward sets!

(+1)

Hi, first of all, these are superb. Just wondering. I'm trying to make a TRPG (DnD mainly) content on youtube and i found your assets to be really helpful. Am i permitted to use this for commercial use outside of making a game? It's gonna be in a form of a playthrough live stream.

(+2)

Hello Shadow!

Thanks for your interest!

You are permitted to use them with commercial purposes so long as credit behind the monsters is given out, either on the video where they are featured or the video description where they are featured!

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Amazing

Thank you!

I love the masters, are there like items and characters as well? I want to make a complete card game using these resources. I'm good with the Patreon but want to know if I can get everything in the same art style. 

There are several humanoid characters available nowadays!

However items don't exist in battler format, however this does give me the idea to draw some weapons and items at some point!

is that the car for all your work or just this pack above?

(1 edit)

Cool! BTW, when it comes to game engines, are there any alterations I would need to do to make the static battlers work in VX Ace, or are they compatible as-is?

Hello!

You might have to adapt these assets dimension wise to fit the screen size of your projects according to the engine you are using!

Awesome artwork!  For the bimonthly update cycles, is there a way to find out what is being released in each update reward cycle before you become a Patreon member, or do you have to pledge first on patreon before you find out what might be released?  I wanted to check because I am not sure what tier of Patreon to sign up for. Tier 5 seems to be the best because you get animated stuff, but then is the update cycle reward supposed to be unknown before you join or before its release?

Hello over here Meta!

To answer your question, the release roster is decided through community polls on a monthly basis, results are usually decided by the 15th of the month, each month!

Are you saying that this amazing work if free to download and use in both commercial and non commercial use?!?!?! 

Hello IwoMalki!

You can!You can find Librarium's terms of use in detail here:

http://www.akashics.moe/terms-of-use/

Hey I did not find a way to contact so I will write a comment here I hope this is okay.  I am a small German Pen&PaperRPG  Author who sells maybe 30 Books or something of each work so its just a hobby if we are honest. I would love to use some of these as monsters in one of my new works but I wanted to ask if its okay as this is not video game related.

Hello Excaleben!

So long as credits are given out, you can!

I noticed that the dragon bones use custom action sequences, but they are all based on the old MV setup. MZ doesn't use note tags.... you also reference things like: 

//-- SlimeDefender -- Attack Settings (copy '#20 Attack' as a base)

#20 isn't an Attack in MZ. Heck, even the base empty MV only went to 10.

What are you referring to? If it was the demo project, that's a dead link now.

Just trying to figure out how to move forward with them in MZ, everything works well with the VisuaStella DragonBones -> just want to give that AI something to use.

Hello MasterTenchi!

The Ultrapack was released during the MV era so many  settings are legacy from that initial release (And the sample files available back then)

In MZ you need to create your own action sequences with the framework the visustella plugins established for it, but what matters in order to be able to do this are the Motion names, which are visible under the settings file for each release, for example :

Attack A

Attack B

Attack C

Let me know if you have more questions!

Hey there Aekashics!
I'm already about half-way through recreating the entire download.
Maybe once I'm done, I'll create a sample project with them all in there for use. :D 
Now if I can just stop being lazy..... mwahahahaaa... god I am getting old...

Heyo!

I was wondering: since I am a Dragon Tier, Where can I find the parts PSDs and etc. for that level? Strangely enough, I became rather good at the dragon bones. 

On a different note, I've left messages directly in Patron but no replies there. Where is the Discord server? Binding to it on the website doesn't add it to the Discord App.

Inquiring Minds Gotta Know!

Hello again MasterTenchi!

There was a delay in patreon notifications reaching my email, apologies! I have already reached out to you over there!

PSD files are available as part of reward sets for featured releases during specific periods, the reply I sent you over patreon breaks down better how rewards are delivered and accessed!

There is no Librarium Discord server, Patreon lists the feature but it only works for patreon campaigns that actually incorporate a server, I am not sure why it appears on my page as it seems as a setting I can't hide/unhide myself, at least based on my own attempts that was the case orz

How many simple animated characters can you make for $20?

So i have decided to stall my current RPG maker project and start a game on unity. And i am gonna go for a mini game within my game that players have to collect cards that they can battle against each other and the cards will come alive and battle  idk lol still working out how i want this to work. And ill be using this huge collection of wonderful art fir this portion of the game. Ill still be finishing the rpg maker game. But with off of your creatures i can make complete sets. I cant wait! Thanks for all the amazing work.

Best wishes for your upcoming project!

Hope you continue to find Librarium Materials useful!

I suggest you to try out GODOT (prefer over Unity). The jump from Unity is relatively easy.

I am a fan of RPG maker from China. I really like your works. I have joined the sponsorship queue! Look forward to you can continue to make better works! Love you!

Hello Wangfeihukimi!

Thanks for your kind words and interest!

Please look forward to future Librarium releases ! :D

I don't know why Petron blocked my account...


I really can't think of any other way now


(-1)

China lol, its japan

hey these are amazing but i was wondering of i could use some of these for my game?

Hello ! In this world there are some heros... and you're one of them ! I'm developing a RPG alone so without you and your work, I'll can do anything... Really thank you, you're awesome ! Now you have new Dragon in your Patreon :D

Thank you very much for your kind words!

And welcome aboard! :D

Hello, first i'm in love with your work, it's amazing, i foresee to buy most of your pack for my game and i would ask you if you mind to create one day Phoenix ashes (static battler) for the Phoenix ? (sorry if my english is bad)

Hello Lost Wisdom, thanks for your kind words!

Right now the idea has not been suggested by our community!

Typically suggestions for  new are made over at Librarium's suggestion box

https://www.patreon.com/posts/librarium-box-4-26695283

coincidentally however I have a statics megapack projected to be completed by January 2021 and Phoenix ashes is among the battlers that will be included there, as we have several fire bird and phoenix releases in Librarium!

Thanks for your support!

Thank you for the fast answer, it's awesome, great coincidence, can't wait to see that !

Hello, I was wondering is it ok if I redraw your battlers for my game, in order to more so fit my own artstyle. I planned on crediting you regardless since these are your designs... but I was curious if that was ok. I feel it falls under edits, but I wanted to be sure.

Hello Zerobeat!

Thanks for reaching out! I don't see any problem as It does fall under edits, with the rest of Librarium terms of use applying to that output (Such as no redistribution outside of your game of edited assets, etc)

Have fun!

Ok, thank you so much for clarifying that for me! As I said, I'll be sure to credit you for designs. Have a good one.
