In answer to everyone noting the similar colours for the white and silver ranks... http://i989.photobucket.com/albums/af19/KZ9999/RankBadges0f.png I hope this clear it up for you. The matt drawing I post are my equivalents to sketches since all my art is vectored based, not bit-mapped. I only apply ...

Quick follow up.... Edited previous post to sort the rank badges for greater clarity. I should also add that the colour of the starbird is a clue to the rank of the pilot: White for Harmless, Bronze for Poor-AAverage, Silver for Competent-Deadly, Gold for Elite and specials. The designs are currentl...

What's been said about font copyright is fairly true, but... (Now forgive me as I'm trying to remember a documentary on the subject I watched a couple of years ago. The following facts I state may be totally off the mark.) Firstly the translation of a font from it's source to another medium doesn't ...

I've got the PDF version on line now in my box space. I've done a little fine tuning to improve the look sightly. The Inkscape source file is in the draft documents sub folder. http://i989.photobucket.com/albums/af19/KZ9999/MiniTshirt01.png Yes, now the subtext spells FATE. Thanks Thargoid for that ...

Here's an idea: what about some new icon that doesn't look like the original? ... I'll try something. Go for it, there is no reason why it should look like the star bird. The t-shirt is a product of an non-starbird logo design. Don't yell at me yet though. Why would anyone yell at you for suggestin...

I think I read somewhere that killing baddies (offender or worse) helps change your legal status quicker. Though not sure how that works. happy hunting Think of your legal status as a essentially a integer number. You start off at 0 which is clean , Every criminal act is a negative number added to ...

Well stick a fork in it, `cause I think it's done. http://i989.photobucket.com/albums/af19/KZ9999/t-shirt0d.png I tried playing around with sticking extra details in the design and decided that less is more . The only thing I couldn't pull off at the moment is having the glow trails twist to show th...

Some more variation on the theme...

It's a fortnight later and here's another batch of designs for the comp'. All of these designs take my standard design and twisted it in to different directions. http://i989.photobucket.com/albums/af19/KZ9999/submission0b.png In order they are: b01 original design, b02 no wormhole, b03 crested and g...

Just an idea.. don't know if it would look right.. (too unsymmetrical perhaps) Maybe add another cobby exiting the station and hooking a hard turn just 100 metres out of the bay, so as to show the scale of the station and an underside view of the cobby at the same time.. maybe make it red also to c...

Ok, out of curiosity, if you only converted them to vectors what was the original source? I think, (but am probably wrong) that the original source of the Govt. types icons was in KZ9999 's Oolite Reference Sheet.. There's a copy in your Oolite folder. Sorry :( , but for the 1.72.2 version it's bit...
