Default Re: How to Edit Icons

It certainly is cool to meet someone else with a passion for making small top-down military images!

Yes, I like Paint.net, but after finally wrapping my mind around GIMP, using Paint.net feels like using my mouse with my left hand! I'm going to need Paint.net because GIMP's been acting up lately--there are so many strange aspects to that program!

Here's an example of what I'm trying to do:



I want to translate some images to be in SP. I changed the paint scheme to be more SP friendly. It still looks too dark to me, but I'm just starting to learn. I must admit, this is a challenge with such a limited palette!

I'm planning to play a long campaign, and replacing each icon as I encounter it. Most of all, I want the game to feel like I'm actually playing with little metal miniatures!

I think you succeeded in making it look like a metal miniature. Looks good. You can probably lighten it up by playing with the brightness and contrast, and then reapplying the SP palette.

Question Re: How to Edit Icons

Andy OR Don,

Is there any CHANCE you guys will CONSIDER making Cross's edited icons part of the next game patch? I think it would be great for making the game look better as it's already one of my favorite games.

Question Re: How to Edit Icons

Well at least you gave me an answer....I guess your answer NO is based around NOT enough players wanting this? Or it is NOT worthwhile to add into a patch?
