Tired of crabs, lizards, and actor masks?

The procedure to change the icon used in a Gridworld project is as follows:

Create the desired graphic as a 48×48 pixel GIF image.

Save the image in the same folder as the .class file for the bug or critter or actor.

For example, if you create a class called testcritter that extends critter using Eclipse and assuming the default location for the workspace, place the graphic in the bin folder located in …/project/workspace.

On a Windows 7 system the file location for a user named Bob would be:

c:\users\bob\workspace\testcritter\bin
