"AdventureQuest Worlds" is a Flash-based online roleplaying game. Players can create characters that they customise through different skill trees, classes and items. In "AdventureQuest Worlds," armour is a big part of the look and uniqueness of a character. Although there are dozens of armours available in the game, players can also make personalised armour for use on a private server. Armour is not difficult to make, although it helps if you have an eye for design.

  1. 1

    Download a free online template of a male or female body from "AdventureQuest Worlds."

  2. 2

    Open the template in Adobe Flash, the same framework that "AdventureQuest Worlds" runs on.

  3. 3

    Select an object in the "Library" panel. Each object should be named "mc" followed by a part of the body, such as "chest," "head" or "hand." Highlight the name of the object to rename it. Delete only the word "template" in the file name. Replace that word with anything relevant to your custom armour, such as "custom" or "supercool." Repeat this process for every object in the linkage list in the "Library" panel.

  4. 4

    Double-click on any of the objects you just renamed. It should appear in the "View" panel.

  5. 5

    Draw your armour over the template object. Use the tools in the toolbar to change the colours or add shapes for shoulder pads, horns and any other decoration you want your armour to have. Experiment with the tools to create your own unique armour. To quickly make the image your own without much hassle, choose the Paint Fill tool, select a colour you like, and fill in the shapes of the object. Choose different colours of green and brown to make camouflage, or blacks and deep purples to make a ninja.

  6. 6

    Save your file as an SWF file when you've finished customising your armour. Click "File" in the top menu, then "Export," then "Export Movie." Choose a name for your armour and save it as an SWF file.

  7. 7

    Upload your SWF file to the Internet using an FTP server or other file-sharing site, such as Vimeo.

  8. 8

    Open "AdventureQuest Worlds," and click "Load." In the window that opens, change "Weapon" to "Armor." Enter the link to your movie file in the SWF field. After your armour loads on screen, move it over your character and click "OK."
