;lol  ;b;

You did that last year?


Here's the blank template, BTW, so you don't have to overwrite me.  Should I post more of this sort of thing in hopes of someone going to town on bases, portraits and logos?

If you posted all your blank templates, it wouldn't be a stretch to expect me to make my own flux series of them.
EDIT: Post 200! Woo...

Okayfine.

If you want to do whole goodie files by yourself and post to Downloads - take the next number in the series and go for it - Bases25 and Logos1 one are in the works, and I have no work done or particular plans after DiplomacyLandscapes5 or Portraits 7, aside from slowly releasing them.  I guess I could always renumber anything you supplanted, so don't let that stop you putting stuff up, soonest, that we can promote to the benefit of the community.

I take it your sig is supposed to look like that?  Congrats on post #200.

Um, yeah.
Well kind of. I was going to try and make a blue laser go across the bottom, but I never finished it. Looks kind of stupid. Let me fix that...
I may make a bases as I know it takes a long time to find good ones. But 25 could be more diverse if I find every one individually on google images. I think that first I'm going to make a "blank" faction template.
(Blank meaning outlines of the leaderhead, a holographic base etc.)

What I did on my internet vacation


http://alphacentauri2.info/My%20Custom%20Factions/Custom%20Factions3.html

-Well, it's not all I produced, but the main thing.  You'll find Bases24 previewed on the page, and I've begun Bases25.

I'm debating whether to come up with five more logos myself, or throw Portraits1 open to the group to complete...


You Can Get Your Name On My Art Modding Goodies Page.

Seriously, guys - download the attached .pcx, add a logo or two (or five) and your credit, and post.

I have a lot of catching up to do yet from my week in exile, and I'd love to get out of finishing this all by myself.  The theme this far is mostly space and space travel - gambling or drones, popular faction ideas (I covered terraforming and Unity crew/reunification, both perennial favorites), or fill-in-the-blank is fine - once you decide on a theme, the ideas just roll in, and the rest is (fairly) easy.

um
Not completely sure what you meant by that.
Is it because nobody has added any logos yet?
Or maybe because the webpage got cut off?

Could it be zero feedback after days of hard work?

About the sig - have you considered animating the beam and combining that with the move function?

Feedback...
Well, the bare shields file and the rest I've already used. They've been there for a long time. Very useful though, I would hate making facs without them.
It would force me to do them myself.  ???
Actually though, I must admit that I'm not much for any of those logos. They are just scraps of gameplay art. (but really though, who would use a drone or a picture of AC with black around it as a logo?) As for the others... They really don't work. We have a rocket with flames out of it that looks slightly too fat and too animated. BUncle Man would fit better for a Buster's Stepsons faction. Also, we have an Earth. We're on Alpha Centauri? And a former... What? Of course, we appreciate you doing it anyway. Those are just my grumblings, although I like the old one you did with just a white backround and then a ton of little bits and pieces to make logos out of with more editing.
That said, I couldn't think of anything to add easy either.
About the sig... Well, I suppose I could probably make it look all squiggly. Like a tadpole swimming. But I do not have the patience for that. Of course, I'm sure I'll end up doing something to that blue laser beam soon.


I hate criticizing free stuff.

The spaceship is a deliberately retro thing.  The one superimposed on the sunburst is a callback to Asimov's Foundation series...

Naturally, I wasn't very serious with a lot of these, or I wouldn't have wasted space on a BuncleMan logo.

Let's see if I can slap together a sample of what I have in mind for the sig - shouldn't take long.

Okay. It looks good with the moving except for the white background.
Thanks. I'm going to fail attempt to remove that.
Shouldn't be to hard, right?
