  • I'm starting the modular sigs for EvE :)

    Using the conventions started by Xink in this thread:
    http://www.tacticalgamer.com/battlef...k-warning.html

    However, as I post this, I'm considering a new layout to allow for larger portraits and in-game names. More to come...

    Banners:



    My portrait (You'll need your own!):


    Roles:




    Getting your char's portrait:
    1. Go to www.eve-online.com
    2. My Character. (Log in if you need to)
    3. You probably need to click it again (makes no sense)
    4. Drill down to your character
    5. Click your portrait until you see the large version
    6. Save it, resize it, add borders according to Xink's original design
    7. Presto.

    The only problem i can see is that i can't read the font for the smaller parts and i'm not particularly fond of the font for the large banner. Other than that great job :).

      I like the concept but agree on the fonts.. The font/style used in the main banner itself is difficult to read and caused me severe bleeding from the eyes while trying to squint hard enough to make it out.

      The Corporation name is also "Tactical Enterprise Group, LTD." not "Tactical Enterprises Group".

        Strike, if I can make a suggestion: the font colors should be something contrasting: blue backgrounds + blue fonts= hard to read.

        Take a page out of Homeworld, or Homeworld 2, for elegant ways to manage the contrast.

        Otherwise, beautiful stuff. If I had your skill, I'd make one for CS:S, or the WoW Guild. Or both.

              What do you guys think about this layout? Limits are 468x100

              The old sig was:
              • banner: 400x50
              • flag: 50x50
              • specialties and roles: [varied width]x25
              • Total size: 450x100 (same as new)


              Thoughts concerning new layout:
              • Give more room in the banner - it was always too cramped
              • Give more room in the specialties - WAY TOO cramped
              • Therefore sacrifice TWO layers of specialties - limited to 2 (Who has 3 in EvE???)
              • Replace flag with portrait - more appropriate in EvE, there was no character in BF2
              • Make portrait big enough to see face, and put Race and Name - they never change
              • Could possibly NOT have text in "specialty" sections - just an obvious picture
              • But - there's no place to show corp role, official position, or title... Then again, most people won't have one - wasted space. Could put that in the portrait instead - perhaps as an insignia to the side.

                That looks about right. Big space for portrait, 2 specialties, you could always put your corp role in some text above the image.

                  Doing this would give important information out about our corp. Wasn't there a policy about not posting your character name outside the restricted TGEL forum? Similarly, putting corp position is just going to make it easy for enemies to target the important/ weak members.

                    Duh! Of course! You're right.
                    Double-Duh.
                    We'll leave that part out.
                    In fact, best probably to leave out the character's name, too.
                    The portrait is harmless. Who's going to recognize that??

                      Especially for the Amaar Sith wanna-bes amongst us.

                      No corp roles or titles should be in publically accessable information. Portrait should be fine. Specialities are a grey area, but are probably ok.

                      I agree with the font contrast comments, but the general feel and backgrounds are excellent.
