Today I am looking for advice. I am making a top-down rougelike game. I have a character (not a very good one), with 12 animations: 4 direction walk, idle, and attack. If I wanted to make it where you can acquire different armors or customize your character, how would be the best way? Would I make different sprites (legs, torso, arms, and head) and pin them all together, and each part has the 12 animations for each piece of armor? That seems like A LOT of work and not very efficient. Honestly, I've never tried an skin addons because I'm not a big fan of 3rd party addons. What is your suggestion on how to do this?
Here is the player's idle down animation:
