I'm trying to come up with some ideas for some graphics for this site, and I would like to know three things from everyone.

1. When you think of space, what is the first thing you think of?

2. When you think about space games, what is the first thing you think of?

3. When you think about this site, what is the first thing you think of?

Thanks

Chebar

Stars, Planets, Nebulae.

2. When you think about space games, what is the first thing you think of?

Large Star Cruisers Manned my many players.

3. When you think about this site, what is the first thing you think of?

Like minded people.

I think personally just a banner with a well done planet, nebula and stars would be perfect with maybe a crusier of some sort in the background. Just my graphical talents are very limited or least my know how of gimp and pain.net are. I have always thought about a flash banner that just slowly pans through a space scene over an over. But I don't think it is feasible because of file size.

I am still learning how to do planets on Photoshop but I am getting quite good at the star fields if you want me to do one for you. let me know what dimensions it needs to be and a link to font that you want for the text.

Take a look at my sig for an example of my Star Fields.

Every star field is different, so it won't look exactly like the one in my sig.

A vast unknown with me all equipped to explore it! 🙂

Watching the Space Sim Community develop and form themselves into a proper voice for a far too long neglected gaming genre 😉

1: the planet Earth existing in vast seeming emptyness

2: need to add more features to my project to make it awesome

3: wishing the internet and sites like these was/were around in the xwing days (ok so it was, but not for me)

#1 - derelict stuff

#2 - eye-candy graphics

#3 - the name makes me think of a massive space station/hub/port

1. When you think of space, what is the first thing you think of?

Probably done a lot before but I still like it a lot and it gives me goose bumps.

A planet (earth or another I don't care) where the sun slowly starts to appear from behind and starts spreading its light rays bit by bit.

2. When you think about space games, what is the first thing you think of?

Freedom, exploration and what stories are to be found out there.

3. When you think about this site, what is the first thing you think of?

People sharing a common interest and the same question on their minds... why is it that space gaming lost the interest of developers as well as the majority of the population.

A beautiful field of stars and a planet or two.

2. When you think about space games, what is the first thing you think of?

The I-War 2 hud, cockpit and a planet with stars....? 😆

In actual gameplay, I think of trading and dogfighting.

3. When you think about this site, what is the first thing you think of?

The best place on the internet to talk about the greatest and most underrated genre of games ever created.

Freespace 2

3. When you think about this site, what is the first thing you think of?

The website... picture of the website(like a screenshot) pops into my head.

1. Crap. We are so bloody small in the grand scheme of things when you try to get your head around how unbelievably vast that sea of stars out there is...

2. Homeworld. Pew pew pew, Boom, KABOOM. Lot's of big ships shooting nice flashy stuff at each other until they go boom until there is only one side left...

3. Likeminded people who are very good at showing me new stuff to play/watch/do...
