Style of armor icons

Post by Crush » Thu Jun 21, 2007 11:04 pm

Currently we have 2 different styles of equipment icons for chest armor.

The 3/4 perspective style:

and the frontal perspective style:

We should try to agree on one consistent style. Which one should we use in the future?

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

I'm for frontal perspective. I dont feel that the 3/4 style fits TMW, but that's me.

3/4. But I don't feel necessary to choose one, I like the variety in the inventory box.

3/4 for item icons from here on if someone asks me.

There aren't that many to redraw yet.

Would someone mind adding that to our guidelines on the wiki?

I like variation. I don't think we should pick one.

If you want to defend your view, open up a new thread for discussion about this.

On other hand standardization is nice and on the other hand variation is really nice. We need to find a compromize between those two.

I would rather see variety rather than everything basically the same with just different colors...so both, don't just choose one.
