Here are the specifications I tried to follow:
- Suggest the ManaPlus name, At least as good as the previous one did.
- Stay compatible with various servers.
- icon/Logo must stay simple.
- must be rescalable.
- suggests role play/fantasy if possible (thus the gothic font)
- A round global shape to suggest a world.
The metallic frame is a wink to mac-ish icons and mac is with, xerox workstation, the first platform designed for the user. Mana plus often fits the first editions of apple guidelines.
I had first the idea to draw a virtual world map such as TMW's one (or just Argae's) but they don't rescale well or . I finally chose the first evol outside map because it fits the specs and the shape suggests a tree or even a mob. I don't think that this choice makes the link between manaplus and evol appear more important than it is. The best would be that reasonable TMW leaders give their opinion about it.
In my opinion, the ManaPlus name makes the link between the mana "family" of worlds, dead or alive, and also with it's origins (mana). It is difficult to make much more.
