A helper proc to get the front photo of a character from the record. Handles calling get_photo(), read its documentation for more information.

get_photo

You shouldn't be calling this directly, use get_front_photo() or get_side_photo() instead.

This is the proc that handles either fetching (if it was already generated before) or generating (if it wasn't) the specified photo from the specified record. This is only intended to be used by records that used to try to access fields["photo_front"] or fields["photo_side"], and will return an empty icon if there isn't any of the necessary fields.

Arguments:

Returns an empty /icon if there was no character_appearance entry in the fields list, returns the generated/cached photo otherwise.

get_side_photo

A helper proc to get the side photo of a character from the record. Handles calling get_photo(), read its documentation for more information.
