Topic: Banner project

Before my term as GC is out, I'd like to see every sim here with its own banner.

Who here is good at this kind of thing?

Re: Banner project

Um.... I am. Happy for help though. Do we have a standard size we want to work with? Just like the Greenleaf banner, or are those too large?

Re: Banner project

Go for something like The Triple Zero, I'd personally say.

Re: Banner project

I'd have said 000 was a bit big, personally. Greenleaf and Cydonia are nice sizes.

Re: Banner project

I think a standard size'd look good. If someone can resize mine for me, that'd be much appreciated!

Re: Banner project

I too would like to know what a good standard size would be and I'll try to work on a banner for the Odyssey and The Longest Journey sims. To who should I send these banners once they are finished?

Re: Banner project

Banners should go to Euan.

Re: Banner project

Say 500px wide by 200px tall as rough numbers - I don't think we want to be unnecessarily strict on exact sizes, but that's a good kind of size to aim for.

Re: Banner project

Let's aim to keep the file sizes low as well - if every sim has a banner that will make the index slow loading if each graphic is several MBs or more.

Even with Greenleaf and Cydonia being between 40-90 KB, it takes me a few seconds to load them on a slow public wireless connection.

Aim for 50 KB or less?

Euan has just uploaded a banner for the Odyssey - thanks for that, Euan! - which is almost 70 KB, but I can make it a bit smaller in file size.

Re: Banner project

I'd say 100KB as a maximum, but aim for lower.

Re: Banner project

If James doesn't mind, for the sake of uniformity, here is the atlantis banner in the same specs as the other two. Euan can you post that in place of the other one.

Re: Banner project

I'll probably make one for the Repulse out of this image:

Re: Banner project

Hmm, I'm thinking I should have cropped a bit more from the bottom to give a better balance to the words and the ship. Oh well.

Re: Banner project

Can still do that if you want.

Re: Banner project

Yeah, I might. We'll see if I have time this evening.

Re: Banner project

Thanks to whoever posted the Repulse banner. If I do wind up updating the graphic I'll post an update here. smile
