Why is thumbnail extremely low quality?

#1

Post by Globhopping »

I recently made a plugin for adding lgbt+ flags into the game and the plugin itself works fine but the thumbnail, no matter what resolution the png in the file is... is always really pixelated. And I know it's not like the "max resolution" you can have the thumbnail, cause it's like 64x64...
I completely copied everything from the sample plugin btw. Haven't changed anything but the title, id, and the "thumbnail" directory. Please help ;-;

This is a pixelated city sim, you should try make the flags pixely so it suits the graphics

Each of them are 16x48. But in the thumbnail most of them are reduced to like 12 pixels each (the flag itself, not the flagpole)
First picture is the image I put in the plugin file for the thumbnail. Second is a screenshot of what the actual thumbnail looks like. And then the third one is what other thumbnails usually look like, aka, not pixelated. Using Drive cause the attachment option is acting weird. Also, thank you for replying.

Your welcome, the flags seem to suit the game's graphics honestly, or am I blind?

Thet's normal for local plugins that have a thumbnail in their plugin.manifest file. I have a bunch of them and the compression is quite extreme
