I have played around with the Widelands logo and tried to recreate it in a 3D Blender scene so we can render it in any resolution we want. We can of course derive one of them to create an icon as well. Here is what came out after a few hours:

What do you think? Is it an improvement? Any favourite?

I'm liking it. face-smile.png Creating a Blender model is an excellent idea. You are right that it provides much more flexibility and usefulness.

Hard for me to pick a favorite, but I lean toward #1 and #3 (if the lower portions of the letters were less obscured by the vegetation.) face-wink.png

It looks like the text is arched only on the right side. Why?

But: Nice face-smile.png

I like the 2nd logo face-smile.png First is ok too, but for me a bit too dark.

I don't like last logo- it is too flat face-grin.png

I don't know what to think about the 3rd one- is it good ? is it bad? face-smile.png

The 3rd logo is pretty cool. I like it!

I like the 2nd one face-smile.png

The last one is too shiny and too flat, IMHO face-confused.png

Do you also plan to create a model for the WL logo? I mean the one in the website icon with these two letters combined.

Here is a modified #3 and a green/redish one:

I like the modification to #3. The letters are much more distinguishable.

In consideration of the original "WL" logo, could you show the green/reddish model with "Wide" in green and "Lands" in the red? Perhaps also capitalizing the "L"? as in "WideLands" with no space?

Could you also create the "WL" logo as 3D? Superimposing the L and W

Nice work as always. face-smile.png
