    Those icons in-game are really old, so I’ve wanted to make somehow higher resolution icons which could fit in future GUI if possible.

    Camera:

    Help:

    Preformance:

    Sound:

    I have resource files still, so they can be still edited. I’m trying to make it all within circle. Not sure what icons are still left. Are these okay? I know about bmp/alpha format, it can be changed easily.

    They look pretty good.

    IMO the performance icon should have the dots changing shade on the way round, like most dials like that get redder the further round, perhaps have them become white for max, black for min or something????

    The cogs are in dire need of a refresh too, they look as if they’ve been drawn by holding a pencil in your mouth…

    Weve actually replaced them with new icons 🙂

    White on black is just visual effect I guess, when you just light some black thing.

    Here’s updated preformance:

    Hey thanks for trying out my suggestion TK, feeling all special and loved now 😀

    Not sure it looks right like that tho, looks more confused than anything IMO, so best stick with your original.

    But thanks for trying it, sure it took longer than I can appreciate.

    EDIT:
    If you have the time and CBA to endulge someone that’s never satisfied, I think it’s not working (for me) because of the stepping from dot-to-dot.
    What if it was a a traditional narrowing near circle going round instead, whether as all white or a grandient effect on the grey scale?

    Like ……. http://www.comfortzoner.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/temperature-gauge.png but a smooth transition from thin to fat….

    I’m sure that would be a little git to get right, but COULD work well.
    Tell me to **** *** if you wish, but just chucking ideas out there.

    Hah, reminds me about those old meters which my grandma has. When I was kid, I loved watching that 😆 .

    Okay, experimented?

    I don’t know are these icons should be beveled at all… I want to have it at least minimalistic effect, but it’s not minimalistic enough… As those server status icons were made on server list, I won’t make new versions of them as they look fine, though I’ve just made an exclamation icon for it:

    I’m not sure about save icon, maybe it should be without circle, or it should be like CD-ROM.

    they all lok very nice. the only problem I can see is how many kids now know what the disk icon means? I don’t think my two even know what a 3.25″ floppy disk is.

    Quite true. Now, it should more resemble an SD card, or a USB-Key. 😀

    They know it means save. Its in every program. Even word 2010 has a floppy for the save icon.

    That to me means music. 🙂
    Not exactly “save”. A checkmark would be closer to save.
