Favicon replacement

Postby LordBob » January 6th, 2014, 8:30 am

It should now be obvious for anyone who's tested the dev releases that the next stable release will be a huge step forward on the graphics front, what with the UI facelift and new big maps.
A consequence of this will be the update of the website favicon. Its replacement could either be:
- the new village status icon, in the continuity of the existing
- or a new shield icon, which as far as I'm concerned says "wesnoth" a lot more than the village

Thoughts, anyone?

Edit: I am also attaching as a third candidate a shield icon created by GunChleoc that is vastly better and more faithful to the actual logo than my own attempt

I like both the shields quite a lot. I like the style of your shield, but GunChleoc's says 'wesnoth' a lot more. Although I like the village, and even think the current one is fine, I do think a shield would make for a more 'unified' icon for both the game and the website.

My vote goes for GunChleoc's shield.

I vote for GunChleoc's. I think it represents Wesnoth the best of the three.

LordBob, should we make it a poll?

I am also in favor of the shield by GunCheloc.

I actually prefer LordBob’s shield since it seems crisper and less like a downscaled version of a larger and overly detailed image, although it might be a tad too wide.

Would it be possible to kind of merge the two together? So like a Wesnoth logo style shield, but without the swords?

The middle one works best for me.

At that scale the swords are barely more than noise.
The only one without them is doing better.
