Heya! It’s almost complete. I won’t post the finished upload on this forum then. see ya there!
Hiya! Long time no see.
I’ve revisited this and made new icons from scratch. You can see some examples in the updated first post!
The new icons are all scaled up, so I’d like for someone who can work with code to implement them so they can fit into the interface without making tiny non detailed versions (I’m just providing the artwork, not the implementation). All of the icons are created so that they fit onto a 100% black background. I’m about 50% complete so far.
Though I'm not sure where that ''documents/mods'' folder is!
Hey again! I was in the hospital for the whole week. This wasn't forgotten yet, I'll probably continue it within the few next days. <img src='http://spacesimcentral.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//icon_e_biggrin.gif’ class=’bbc_emoticon’ alt=’:D’ />
Sure. Though, notice that not all of them are done. Made two more today, you can find the newest ones at the bottom.
Really? Well thats sure one heck of an artist then.

So, in the process of creating a little mod (custom starmap icons), I noticed that if a star and its bodies are at the bottom of the game’s window it gets a weird render, like this: [hsimg]http://i.imgur.com/NIJWM.png[/hsimg]
So, a little idea I’ve had is to place a giant arrow at the edge of the window, that will scroll to the next star in the system showing its orbiting bodies, in case its a binary, or trinary. So the stars dont have to bulk up on one page.
A little peek of what I’ve been doing:
Don’t really like the google images-wikipedia stars so I decided to make my own.
Here you go.
Also a more eyebrowish eyes for the creepy woman.
Hmm yes. After playing elite for a while I do see the strong resembelance many are attached to. I’ll edit the thread, making ideas rather than ”criticising” on the parts I dislike. Though for most of my bad points, I didn’t want them to be removed, just to be changed on the better..
Edit: There we go. The goodie version of the thread is now live!
If I removed all the ”harsh” parts of the post, It wouldn’t exactly be the kind of feedback I wanted to point out. Instead I could’ve just posted another praising thread how pretty and good the game is currently (Which is a bit too obvious, so I won’t even bother posting that). The game does have huge potentional to become something better than just a tribute to elite, and I’m only trying to point out what I like and dislike about it, and what could be improved (from a player’s perspective). And if (no insult intended) the simple ”art” style from the 90’s is what people want, instead something much better and adequate for pioneers current standard so be it. And yeah, I’ll try elite too.
I’m also not sure why everyone finds opinions harsh AND takes them personal. /endpost/ 😉
*Let my try to rephrase this:
Since pioneer is already using the current technology, capable of generating millions of worlds, why would it use an ”art style” that is 16 years old, and was forced because of the limited low-end technology back then? I’m trying to point out what I’d improve, but appearently my opinions are just making people angry, and I don’t want such reactions for a simple thread describing what I like and what I don’t.
Note however that those are only MY opinions. I respect and value the time you put into it and I never meant to insult you. I am only a bystander watching the game grow and pointing out what I dislike as a player. If you are to keep the faces, it needs polishing. Many facial parts don’t fit together.
