Here AGAIN face-smile-big.png for comparison are the existing stone and marble images (idle/menu) as PNGs and as they would appear in the game.
Atlant stone: Atl stone idle Atl stone menu, Emp marble: Emp marble idle Emp marble menu, Empire stone: Emp stone idle Emp stone menu, Barb rawstone Barb rawstone idle Barb rawstone menu

Now the candidates for the iron, assuming the gold gold idle gold menu is acceptable: face-smile.png
Iron1: iron idle iron menu, Iron2: iron2 idle iron2 menu, Iron3: iron3 idle iron3 menu, Iron4: iron4 idle iron4 menu Iron#4 too blue? How is this? Iron5: iron5 idle iron5 menu
Note: If you wish, you can copy these images and try them in the game yourself! (In Firefox, Right-click/Save Image As)
EDIT: (I think the best coordinates for the hotspot will be 4 10 for Atlanteans and Barbarians, 6 10 for Empire.)

Now I would rank them (most favorite-to-least): 5,1,4,2,3

1, 4 (though it's a bit too blue) :), 2, 3

Yeah, that's what you get for all you're trouble. Ask 10 people and end up with 12 opinions! face-wink.png

As for "blue tint" I had something in mind like this or even less blue than that. this this

BTW: The transparency still didn't make it when I grabbed your ingot, so this one is opaque.

Ahhh... your last one came while I was looking up the markdown syntax.... that's it! (for my taste) 5,1,4,2,3

Chuck, you're the graphics elder for a reason. Honoestly; I don't care whidh one you choose.

Being no programmer, I apologize for all my suggestions that imply undue workload and for other misjudgements due to lack of expertise or relevant skills.
I am on Win32, have no means to compile, and rely on prefabricated distributions (Thanks to Tino).

Yes, 5 is better than 4 and can better be distinguished from stone than 1. So I rank them 5,1,2,(3,4) now.


Two is the oddest prime.

It's 23 March, and as I stated in post #4618, the deadline for this discussion if we want to get any changes in for build 16rc.
That said, I am of the impression that the majority:

  • prefer the ingots over the current images for gold and iron in all tribes
  • prefer the images Chuck has proposed
  • favor version #5 of Chuck's iron ingot image

So I will ready them to be pushed. face-smile.png

Stone: Looks great but the outline of the atlantean and empire stone doesn't fit to the rest of the icons. I would remove it.

Iron: I like the number 5 (Chuck's one) best.

All in all really nice work! face-wink.png
