OOLITE.ORG. Design update

Post by seventh » Sun Nov 25, 2012 1:57 pm

Hi guys, after I had done new design of the oolite.org I wasn't completely satisfied, I thought that it could be much better. And couple months ago I've realize what I wanted to do. So let me show you a little bit more eyecandy design

Wow, wow, wow and WOW! :shock:


(Did I mention wow?)


Seriously impressive. The "Strict" vs "OXP" modes in "About" is a neat touch.
"Show All" in the Gallery looks great, too...

Well done! 8)
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

Excellent work! There are some odd characters here and there on the site though (also seen on some photo descriptions):

You mean the following: Oolite’s Apparently some quotes are replaced by: ’

But you forget those minor things when visiting those great pages.

Also, on the links page: Ahruman has mutated back to JensAyton. He has also changed his email in his sig to "jens(at)oolite.org". I'm not sure whether the "ahruman(at)oolite.org" address is still valid.

I don’t like the mouse-tracking stuff on the front page. It feels a bit… GeoCities, really.
(I’ve actually been quasi-planning to replace the pic on the front page with a WebGL scene on browsers which support it, but I can’t really give a finite timeline on that.)

I’m not a fan of the modified logo either.

Other than that, I mostly like it, and the gallery definitely needs revamping. I can’t change the site at the moment, though, because of ongoing hosting changes.

“Back”?

It is, but I’d prefer jens@.

I was making the conjecture that at some point Jens must have mutated into Ahruman, although this most probably didn't take place on these forums. Thus, technically the "back" is indeed wrong. :)
