Where can I find the Emoji smiley pack?

I like the Whats App smileys, Emoji I guess. I find the current set of smileys on XF are not as expressive for daily use on my forum. The smiley usage seems to be on an all time low. Moreover I know users are comfortable using the Emoji on their mobile apps.

So I found a smiley pack with all the Emoji as individual files of 160px dimension. Tried resizing them to 16px in photoshop but the results were not as good. They look good at least at 32px.

Anyone knows if I can find such a smiley pack in smaller dimension which can be used on the forum.

You job... if you care to accept it... is to figure out the locations on the spritesheet. :p
One site that might work is http://getspritexy.com/

It's a slow process.... each smilie is 20x20 for those wondering...

I am using the smilie sheet here: https://github.com/iamcal/emoji-data/blob/master/sheet_20.png

It seems to be the most up to date. I am also using the titles, codes they have used for each. First four rows across are finished. I think I am going to categorize them, and release as "packets", so those that only want certain things can have just those parts....

Here is the look of the first rows...

Should be able to get back going this evening, have a bit of traveling to do today.

32px destroys any flow of the conversation...

so if I continued onto this line, with another 32px "smilie, this would result...

and on the next line, a 64px one...

then on the next line with a 64px one...

Now, let's look at this same paragraph with 20px

32px destroys any flow of the conversation...

-- If people want to use images larger than that, they may as well just upload the ones they want. Plus, I am personally not interested in seeing the smilie box scroll down forever with 64px images.
