No face-grin.png! I just committed them to the media repository, as I feared they could get lost until I really add them to the seafaring branch. Unfortunally I am still busy at university (as you can see by my very late response face-wink.png ), so it will most likely take some more time until those icons will be used.

Not a problem. Studies should always come first. face-smile.png

However, see these icons as "I hope someone improves them sometimes, but until than they look at least partly intuitive" face-wink.png ... so you beat me to it, before I got a chance to ask for improvement of those graphics face-grin.png

Here is a recap of the graphics offered for the new "Start Expedition" and "Explore Island" icons:
Start Expedition: SE

Explore Island: 1) EI 2) EI1 3) EI2

I offer another version of the Explore Island icon for consideration: 4) EI3 It is meant to represent a magnetic compass overlaying an island.

Comments?

I like version 2.

Considering the comment of PkK in the seafaring thread (http://wl.widelands.org/forum/post/7976/): can you try to keep the right end of the glass fixed and lift the left end of it so that it is apprximately vertically centered? I hope that is understandable...

Perfectly understandable, fuchur. face-wink.png
Something like this, say? 2a) 1a

Edit: - corrected the reference number

I also like 2a the most. I think it is the easiest to recognize.

Thanks for your comments!

I'll tuck these away safe and sound in the media branch so they'll be ready for use when the code is. face-wink.png
