I've never been satisfied with the amount of features that Kenney Studio offers. Creating new templates is extremely time consuming and every template only has limited options. That's why I've decided to go a slightly different route with the next version.
Kenney Studio NXT is completely made from scratch and will be provided as a free update for everyone that purchased Kenney Studio. The old version will also remain available, since it'll take a while to get NXT up to par with the older version feature wise.
In the new version there won't be any templates. You start with a blank slate and you can add 'smart objects' from a range of collections (tanks, animals, characters, tiles, UI elements etc.). Smart objects have similar features as the old templates in Kenney Studio had. Each object has its own unique range of properties. Next to those unique features you can now manipulate each smart object with some standard properties, like it's position, size, rotation and transparency. While holding shift you can make the objects snap to a grid for easy manipulation.
You can also save assets you've made so you can share them with others. That way you get a similar functionality as the old templates in Kenney Studio had, each collection of smart objects also comes with a pre-made template like this.
Currently the base functionality is in, some large features still have to be made before releasing. Check out our Trello board to see what still needs to be done.
Hope you agree that this is a much better path to follow, let me know if you have any questions!
