A sprite is an image used in games from the Creatures series which, in a sprite set, can be the images for a breed of Creatures, or be part of a COB or Agent, or even be part of the world in which your Creatures live.

A sprite set is a collection of sprites used together to create the image of the norn/grendel/ettin/geat or agent/COB.

Which sprites are which?

You will notice that most sprites have a relatively cryptic name, such as a02d.c16 for the head image for male child breed-slot d (chichi) Norn.

The first character refers to which part of the body it is, the second character is the species and gender, the third character is the life stage of the creature, and the forth character is the breed slot.

Note, in Creatures 1, breed slots were numbered 0-9, so a sprite name could be a029.spr, but in later games they were lettered a-z.
