SpritesTextures

A list of various sprites used for the Baldi's Basics series.

Purpose

Sprites are used for certain structures or for decoration. Every character in Baldi's Basics uses sprites for their design and are never a 3D model in-game.

All sprites are front-facing 2D sprites, meaning 2D sprites that constantly face the camera. The only non front-facing 2D sprites are 1st Prize, The Test (body only), Baldi's bus, and the "NO" signs.

Structures

Several structures are in the form of sprites.

The list includes:

Super Schoolhouse

Field trips

Camping

Decorative objects

Schoolhouses

Common sprites

Room materials

There are papers found laying on desks inside some classrooms and faculty rooms with big desks. The player can see a stickman on the paper but it cannot be for sure. There are also sheets with pencils, but only in the classic Schoolhouse. In some classrooms, there are notebooks (not to be confused with the collective objective notebooks) that cannot be picked up, unlike the other notebooks that the player needs to collect.

Inside the Principal's office and some faculty rooms with big desks, there are globes. The size of the globes vary, some have a normal size, but in one faculty room, there is an unusually giant globe seeming to clip through the floor, as seen in the classic Schoolhouse.

In the cafeteria and faculty rooms with vending machines, there are multiple identical restaurant-based lunch meals and bananas on most of the tables. The tray seems to have a drink, a load of fries, and some bread or a burger inside of what looks like some tin foil. Also applies in the playground, but only in Full Game Early Demo. The banana also appears in Baldi's Office in Classic and Birthday Bash.

Room decorations

Tree-like plants in brown pots are seen in some hallways, faculty rooms (In Classic and Birthday Bash), and exits.

The "EXIT" signs are used for the classic Schoolhouse's exits. In Classic/Birthday Bash, there is also another "EXIT" sign in a faculty room with a Swinging Door Lock, right above a massive globe. In Classic Remastered, the exit signs have a different design and have a handwriting font.

Lamps in the library.

In Baldi's Basics Plus, there are lamps attached to the ceilings of the classrooms, faculty rooms, Principal's office, and the library. They can also be found in the mystery room, but only in Endless Mode - Medium. In Classic Remastered, there are gray lamps found in the cafeteria.


Unique sprites

Party balloons
"Balloon" redirects here. For other uses, see Balloon (disambiguation).

The location of a red balloon from Birthday Bash.

The balloons are used for the party event at the Principal's office, appearing in many different colors: orange, green, blue, and purple.

In Baldi's Basics Birthday Bash, these balloons can be seen almost everywhere in the classic Schoolhouse. The balloons can be pushed and even slow the player's movement when trying to pass them. Updated in Full Game Early Demo, the collision is removed and makes the player able to pass through the balloons more easily. Furthermore, a single red balloon is hidden, and can be found at the outdoor area from the Schoolhouse's west wing when using hacks. If the red balloon is observed closely, the number 99 written backwards is located on the left side.

These balloons are also found in Baldi's Office after completing the Hide-and-Seek mode in Baldi's Basics Plus. Prior to V0.3.3, there was a red balloon stuck on the bottom-left corner and it kept flickering.

Tree

There are 3D-modeled trees in the playground area, being the only plant life so far to be a 3D model, however it appears as a 2D billboarded sprite. They can block the vision of any character.

Field trips

Camping

Prior to Baldi's Basics Plus V0.3, there are photo-realistic trees littered around the whole forest in the camping field trip, having grayish wood and light green leaves. On rare occasions, a tree with the number 99 on the trunk will spawn. There are also "NO" signs found in the deeper areas of the forest.

Trivia

General
  • The food in the cafeteria appears to be from the fast-food chain Five Guys.
  • The papers are actually a stack of mystman12's old Baldimore comics.
  • The lamp model in Baldi's Basics Plus is very similar with identical colors to Sonic's Schoolhouse.
  • The balloons floating around the halls is probably a reference to Sonic's Schoolhouse, in which there was a minigame that involved popping balloons (which resemble the balloons seen here) to get items to open doors.
  • The potted plant resembles some kind of indoor pine or tropical plant.
  • Baldi-Congrats.gif
    The 3D-modeled tree is first seen in the animated GIF where Baldi gives a thumb up when Baldi's Basics Classic was downloaded 100,000 times. This was later used in Full Game Early Demo.
  • The trees in the old camping field trip resemble Lombardy poplars or some sort of columnar oak. The trunk has been edited, however.
Baldi's Basics Plus
  • The balloons' sprites are not obscured when the fog event triggers. This may be a development oversight.
  • The plants and the trees from the old camping field trip contain some small transparent holes, due to the effect when removing the background.
  • A tree from the playground clipped through a wall.

    It is possible that some trees from the playground can clip through any wall.
  • Prior to Baldi's Basics Plus V0.1.3, trees in the playground are invisible in pre-generated levels. However, they still have collision.
  • All decorations used in the original Schoolhouse were missing in the Super Schoolhouse, but they returned in Baldi's Basics Plus V0.3.[1]
    • However, this does not apply in pre-generated maps as of now.
