View Full Version : Jailbreak custom actor icons needed

13th Mar 2004, 12:21 PM
Does anyone feel like making UnrealEd actor icons for some of the following Jailbreak custom classes?


You can find out what these are on the JDN (http://mychaeel.no-ip.com/jailbreak/Placeable_Actors).

I've attached a pic of the custom icons we already have, to give you an idea of the style. These are for generic release, jail, timed trigger, camera and arena respectively.

EDIT: icons should be 32x32. No JPEGs please!

EDIT2: these are done, or don't need icons

JBGameObjectiveTouchable (already has one)
JBMaterialTrigger (doesn't need one)
JBTriggerTimed (we've got one now)
JBVolumeTunnelExit (displays a volume: doesn't need one)
JBExecutionSkeletize (see below for the execution icons!)

Here's a few ugly ones :D

Does the JBMaterialTrigger really need its own icon? There's the Engine.MaterialTrigger's icon already: S_MaterialTrigger.
The JBVolumeTunnelExit is a volume, its icon would never be used.

Just got two,
ExecutionBurning, and lightning

I like the yellow triangle!
Care to make that a theme for all the execution types?

PS. Don't make icons as JPEGs: you'll get blurry edges. GIF or PNG please.

I like the yellow triangle!
anyway, fixed the elect to the right size (i hope) and your idea with just the lightning anybetter?
As for the skull, is it clear enough? the second one should have a silver outline which makes it brighter but at this size, loses the shape.

ok, here's a potatoshop doc with a basic yellow triangle, your lightning icon, and two versions of a skull. (Tip: when in need of simple images, try wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skull_and_crossbones) :)

I think a series of icons with the same basic shape is good -- so what I think we should do is add further graphics to the inside of the triangle for the other death methods.

Wow, those icons are really looking good -- I'm looking forward to seeing them in the editor. :)

Here's an updated version.
I've got burning, basic and skeletize done. I've got an "explode" one (from the chemical hazard labels, same place I got the flame image), in case we do an explode custom death (Hint! Hint!)
I've tried doing a diamond like the chemical labels, but on yellow it just looks like US road sign :( and in red I don't think it'll be clear enough in UEd.

All I need now is depressurize. Any ideas?

All I need now is depressurize. Any ideas?Why not a stick figure (maybe like from the HUD or something) with colored arrows inside pointing outwards?

18th Mar 2004, 04:30 PM
Here's the file with the explode icon, and two suggestions for depressurize.

EDIT: I actually just had a thought - if you don't like the two other icon ideas in that file for depressurize - why not a simple exclamation mark?

Nice work, Spoon. I like the dial one better of the two depressurize icons.

The more I think about it (yes, I am turning into Mych!!! :eek: :lol: ), the more I find myself preferring a red diamond. The shape is nicer and it gives a tiny bit more room for the central part of the icon. I've tried lightening the red a bit, like this. Do you think the contrast is enough?

Maybe make it a bit more orange if you're going to do that - looks a bit too pink atm. I don't mind the yellow ones though, tbh.

I think the yellow and black would go better, wouldnt the dark pinkish colour hide the black?
maybe we should look at aircraft safty signs or something about pressure...

[Edit] looks like i found some more triangles! proper ones (no dodgy resizing from me this time ;) )

Yeah, that's what I was worried about. Let's stick with the yellow triangles then.

maybe we should look at aircraft safty signs or something about pressure...

Chemical signs have a sort of gas cylinder to indicate pressure. But I was worried Spoondog or Sexmachine would say it's a dildo... :rolleyes:

A windsock maybe...? Could suffer from the same problem...

Nice work everyone! Here's a shot of the icons in UnrealEd.

If you're still stuck for a depressurized icon, how about trying the standard execution icon but with the "fish-eye" or "bulge" effect applied to it. I did try this out myself, but failed miserably. Just a thought.

Sexmachine would say it's a dildo

What do you think of this for JBMonsterSpawner?

that looks very good I can't wait to map for JB-200#
