I just thought up a terrific way to use this, but I don't think BYOND has any support for it at all. So I'd like to request an option to cut bits of larger images like .pngs or .bmps and turn them into icons. So I could do something like this:
icon = CutImage('picture.png',5,5)
This would take the 5th square from the edge, and the 5th square from the bottom, and turn it into an icon for the mob. If the image isn't large enough, it could just return null. Not sure how doable this is for you guys, but if you can do it, I can use it.
