I've wanted to get back on this all day, but been sidetracked doing avatars...

Sorry for that. Babes will get us more traffic.. :)
Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

And I'm not done yet - redrawing those bare faction logos is time - consuming.  Still, it's a thing worth doing, to have something no one can easily duplicate.

I could go ahead and post Portraits1 to Downloads today, and start putting the word out...

Portraits1



Leaderheads are the most time-consuming aspect of a SMACX faction graphic, so in the same spirit as the Bases files, here are eight leaderheads, ready to copy/paste as-is into your next custom faction.  It is hoped that these graphic goodie files will give beginners at faction modding a leg up.  See also the Bases series, also in this section, and for info on art techniques and/or to communicate with BU and ask any questions, see the Graphics thread: http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?topic=1237.0

These portraits were a lot of work, but all I ask is that you credit me in the blank space of the .pcx you use one in.  Posting to let me know you found it useful would be okay, too.  Good hunting.

The third one on the left, and number 2 and 4 on the right column have potential (portraits 3).

That makes 40 leaderheads - 12 of them male - if you count the two all-armor ones in Portraits4 as male.  Seems like everyone like drawing babes, including all the women artists.  Hard to find dudes who aren't total twinks.

Bases14

Bases14



9 structures adapted from GalCiv2, laid out to copy/paste into the .pcx of your next custom faction.

Bases are the most difficult aspect of a SMACX faction graphic to create, so it is hoped that these graphic goodie files will give beginners at faction modding a leg up.  See also the Portraits series, also in this section, and for info on art techniques and/or to communicate with BU and ask any questions, see the Graphics thread: http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?topic=1237.0  These are a lot of work to put together, so please be sure to credit me in the empty space of the .pcx.  Posting to let me know you found it useful would be okay, too.

Thanks to I Have No Name for the GC2 files I worked with.

Woah those Row 5 and 7 bases are awesome. Huge potential there for faction modders.

I was disappointed at how row five reduced - but total agreement about row seven.

The righteous need not cower before the drumbeat of human progress. Though the song of yesterday fades into the challenge of tomorrow, God still watches and judges us. Evil lurks in the datalinks as it lurked in the streets of yesteryear. But it was never the streets that were evil.
~Sister Miriam Godwinson 'A Blessed Struggle'
