I'm currently working on some Outpost2 lettering for my website but I can send them into xfir for an Outpost2 skin design

Just tell my what format you want the graphics file to be and i'll make it that.

Well, I suppose if you could, could you send it as a .psp? If not, then a .jpg or .gif will work (preferably the Jpeg, as the gif will lose a lot of color)

Judging by your graphics I would say that you would have Paint shop Pro 7
I've got Paint shop Pro 8, so I would gladly save the files as a .psp,
also each letter has its own vector so it would be easier to use them.

Okay... a couple minor things..

First of all, the logo above is transparent. The background I could change, but doing so is annoying.

Note also that the image is a gif. If you could possibly make the .psp file layered, with the text on top, that would be great.

Other than that, it looks pretty good.. I am unsure whether I like your new icon or not, however. But I don't use the default skin, so I guess it is more or less up to the community.

*As Plymoth45 opens fire on Kiith Somtaaw, the all might Hiigaran Space Fleet arrive out of hyperspace to aid him in his unfortunate encounter, after the battle Plymoth’s Starship is heavily damaged and slowly returns to Earth only on impulse engines, while the Hiigaran Fleet return to there Homeworld victorious and unscarred.

A couple things you should know:
  • There will not be any changes to any files during the move
  • The site will remain exactly the same, with the exception that it will be on a different server
  • At the moment, people do not use all the skins. Most people still use the default


There will be new skins only if I decide to add them after I get everything working. Even then, it may not happen.

I could do an OP2 skin. With PNG's and not JPEG's. ;) I could make the bottom of the page appear as New Terran landscape, and the rest is the sky. Just give me a landscape and a sky image.

The easiest landscape to do would be the view of the colony while the RLV is launched in the Starship colony game cutscenes. I can't take screenshots of parts of videos for some reason, so someone needs to take one for me.

Or, if someone could make a custom landscape in a program like Brice, that'd be even better.

--

Ok, maybe that will be a little harder, considering the rocket fire and the AA'ing...

I'm modifying one of the art things in the mission brefings.

--

The skin is for this board.

Hmm, your post magically appeared in front of mine...? Or did I edit instead of post?

--xfir says, "Edit button = good, yes?"
--Arklon responds, "Kiith likes to delete and repost his replies in front of mine a lot. Or, occasionally, just delete."

A Landscape what ever for.

Are you making a skin for forum or something else?

Why do you keep reposting your reply in front of mine? I don't need those screenshots now... due to the rocket engine fire and the AA'ing on those pictures. The skin is for the board.

Anyway, as for changing parts of a mission briefing image, here is what I have right now: (Takes work getting rid of the background and the text...)



It's not meant to fill the entire bottom of the page. Just the lower left corner. The sky will be done later, which will cover the bottom.

For me, it works perfectly fine.

And resizing often causes distortions or pixelation in images... and anti-aliasing it will make it look odd as well.


Edit 1: Ok, go here for that image if you can't see it.

Edit 2: Damn it, Kiith, stop deleting your posts.

Edit 3: Here is how it looks enlarged: blah

Or wootest.net doesn't like you.

I didn't attatch the image in that thread because it stretched the page. Besides, it looks bad. The normal sized version of it would look better.

I'm double posting so that people see that there's a new post here.

I'm almost done with the skin, I just need to make the buttons. Unfortunately, there's a lot of button images...
