+Graves are small images which appear when a hedgehog dies. Graves are chosen on a per-team basis. A grave can be either be unanimated or animated. Animated graves can consist of up to 8 frames (16 frames in 0.9.23).

== Creating graves ==
=== Unanimated graves ===
To create an unanimated grave, draw a PNG image of size 32×32 pixels. You _can_ use semi-transparency.

=== Animated grave ===
-To create an animated grave, first you have to draw 2-8 images of a size of 32×32 pixels each. Those images have to be combined in a single image. The width of the final image is alwas 32 pixels, the height is _n_ · 32 pixels, where _n_ is the number of frames (single image in animation) you chose.
+An animated grave can have 2, 4 or 8 frames. In Hedgewars 0.9.23 or later, 16 frames are also possible.

To combine: The first image is placed at the top, the next image is placed 32 pixels below that, the next one 64 pixels, and so on.

-Each of these sub-images is a frame in the final grave animation. It starts with the topmost image, continues with the image below, and so on. After the last sub-image, the animation repeats with the first frame.

-The first image will be also the one which is shown in the team creation menu as preview. The grave will only be animated while in the game.
