Website ranks

Incredibly minor, but would it be possible to have unique icons for individual forum ranks?

Looks incredibly boring just having the same one for every rank. Plenty of pics of epaulettes and stuff on google.

Would look a bit better I agree, nothing too important as Merfie stated it just more appealing to the eyes!

If anyone would like to recommend a set other than the ones we're using right now feel free to do so mates.

I'd like to change them eventually as well since I do agree that they are quite plain. However, our 2D artist has his hands full with the in-game UI right now.

This is how the current set looks:

If I were to begin making some, how large can they be? 16x16?

The ranks that we have right now are 18*16 and they progress through the ranks as can be seen in the thread I’ve linked above.

Example:


You also have the option of going for one image for each and every rank of about 115*19 in size. However, this would require more work.

These are in 11x16. Is this the kind of thing you're after? (Obvious resizing is needed)

Merfie is designing a set to make all the ranks look unique.

The ones you've shown however would be great to experiment around with. Can you provide me with a link (with the highest resolution possible)? Thank you.

Hmm, im curious what program you for this. Illustrator [Adobe] would be the best right?

I use paint.net for everything. My signature, the 3rd forum page, TS Icons. Whatever works for you.


Icons are done, and will be uploaded by Refleax tomorrow.
