Experimenting with icons


Recommended Posts

There is no disconnection, or maybe my eyes betray me, which means it's possible they control the animation of the model via code...

Would it look weird at gameplay zoom level? Dunno.

Probably not, but people would probably complain ^^

Had some fun the phase icons using my new letters.

I love these, but if they were to be implemented why not use all of them? Different colours for different ages would make it more like we are, say, progressing through history. So use one colour for each age.
How i would go through them would be Copper/Silver/Darkish Gold/Lightish Gold.
My reasoning being the copper age is the closest of where 0ad's timeline starts, silver is used as money but not worth as much as gold, dark gold is used less than it's lightish more twinkly variant which looks more showoffy.

They would only complain........
If they could see the thing to complain about. That means you just need to make it so they can only see it if they look close enough, but in a strategy game, everyone would be busy with other things, no?

Well you'd think so, but there are multiple types of players, and some like to zoom in :D

I feel the need to point out that in A25 the icon for barracks have been renamed to 'barracks.png', in A24 the name was 'pers_barracks.png'. Modders need to beware of this. The appearance of the icons are still identical.

It wasn't before because there wasn't any stable.

What are these 3 icons for? 

Hammer + sickle ... what are you implying? ; )

As this thread states I'm experimenting, sometimes then end up in Delenda Est :P

Perhaps you want the background of the icons to be pure black to make the main bit more visible?

Or transparent icons?

Well they need to be consistent with other tech icons.
