Re: The new Wesnoth logo and the Loyalist sigil

Well, I already have found two potential replacements: Weslogo-text5.png The upper one is "Oldania", released under GPL, so no restrictions for us. The lower one is "Carolus FG", license allowing private and commercial use, modification, but not redistribution of modified font files. This isn't a pr...

Re: The new Wesnoth logo and the Loyalist sigil

It seems there is no unambiguous license for this font. Since I need to modify the font file (add some necessary cyrillic and greek glyphs etc.) and possibly redistribute the modified file, at least among the developers, we probably need a font that is explicitly either public domain or GPL. There a...

Re: The new Wesnoth logo and the Loyalist sigil

Beetlenaut: Colourless metal would help somewhat: Weslogo-text4.png Ancestral: For visibility, your version works ok, but aestethically it looks rather bland, too smooth and glossy. I would prefer something edgier and more rustic. Technically, the effect would have to be done with one filter working...

Re: The new Wesnoth logo and the Loyalist sigil

The licence of Typ. Rotunda is ok. I would have to tweak some of it (like the annoying knobs on the stems of h and l), but I can do that in the font file in Fontforge, so the changes would be consistent across translations. Those are my favourite effects too, but unfortunately they both have the pro...

Re: The new Wesnoth logo and the Loyalist sigil

Alright, I put something together for the text part. Visually, it follows the old one, having a ^ shaped raised metal effect. The inset shows it in context of the game start screen. The problem with this effect is that it makes the text blend with the background (the same issue is present with the o...

Re: The new Wesnoth logo and the Loyalist sigil

BRAAIINNSSS... Thread resurrection complete! I was recently informed that my design for the new logo has been committed. I've been getting asked for the source files for various other reasons, so here are a high-definition PNG ( notice to vultraz: this is slightly different from the one I sent you i...

Re: What does 9/11 mean to you?

to say we should ignore them is like saying we should ignore all serial killers because they only kill one person at a time. So, when you find out that a serial killer may be hiding in, say, Boulder, Colorado, the right thing to do would be to lock the city down with military force, treat every inh...

Re: Heir to the Throne: Portraits

There was really "no point" in putting all those decorations in armour either, but the high-class soldiers still did it. :)

Re: Heir to the Throne: Portraits

OTOH, if it has been made into more form-fitting shape, that is, with a smaller circumference below the breasts, then it will also look more form-fitting. Armours were very expensive, and the rank-and-file probably didn't want too form-fitting armours because they couldn't afford to refit them whene...

Re: Favorite Piece of Art

Even though rather gruesome, Judith Slaying Holofernes by Artemisia Gentileschi has always made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Her other stuff is great too.

If we include works of architecture as art, then just about anything by Antoni Gaudi.

Re: Heir to the Throne: Portraits

a guy smiles like this: :D and a girl smiles like this :) (I think) I don't think it's a gender thing. More likely, a closed mouth smile is more reserved (shy, placating), while an open mouth one is more outward, bold or even arrogant. According to her station and character, the latter should fit L...

Re: The new Wesnoth logo and the Loyalist sigil

Another tweak, this time with a different letterform for "s". The letter is blacker, but the negative space around it is more continuous. The shape itself is less interesting, but a simpler one might work better in this context.

Re: The new Wesnoth logo and the Loyalist sigil

The whole lettering seems somewhat over that place now - kerning-wise as well as concerning the space the individual letters take up. Just squint and you'll notice that the grey-value is off. Actually, I've been painfully aware of this the whole time. The problem is, that since the text is going to...
