[Solved] Anyone willing to give the Pyrate WB logo a little FC community love ?

Postby Kunda1 » Tue Oct 02, 2018 11:22 am

Pyrate is available via the FC Addon Manager. Check out the logo, it leaves a lot to be desired. Any folks here feel like submitting a PR to pyrate with an improved logo for their workbench ?

I made a quick sketch of an icon for demonstration:

Since it is for an optical ray-tracer, in this sketch, the red curved part is a reflective surface like a mirror and the blue line is a ray of light reflecting off the surface forming the letter 'P' standing for Pyrate.

@joha2 all good. I CC'd you on the upstream ticket.
Props go to @AR795 for the icon.

@Kunda1, anyway it is very nice that the community cares about our project! I really appreciate that! @AR795 thank you for your effort. I think the icon is very nice. The style and reference to optics is also very nice. Although I do not think it is necessary that the icon forms a 'P'. For us 'pyrate' is more or less just a working title and may be subject to change in the future. Therefore: would it be possible to create a more neutral icon without referring to the 'P'?

Thanks in advance!

Best wishes
Johannes

Edit: If modification of the icon is not possible, the original 'P' forming one, you suggested would also be nice for our project since it is way better than ours :mrgreen:

Yes, it is possible to create more variations, two of which I thought of before:

Thank you so much for responding and changing the icon design so fast! Yesterday I phoned to mess42 and told him that you designed new icons. He was very impressed about that. I sent him a link to this thread and I think one of the two last icons above will be used for the workbench very soon.

Again big big thanks!

Best wishes
