Um...hate to have to ask, but, what are they? I mean, the third one seems to be something to do with slimes, but other than that, I can't really tell what the images mean. Which is a bit of a problem in a graphical interface, you know?

Well they r really not supposed to look like fancy portraits seeing as how they are 32 x 32 in size but click the link and it shows, but hopefully in game they will put words with them anyways, especially since you can't fit words on them since it was needed to be 32 x 32.

Talaroc: these are the icons for he skill window. The ones above are for monster hunting skills.

By the way flare, the bevel does add alot to make the icon look 3D. Thanks for putting it in and keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to the next set.

I think they're too schematic, maybe, because I too can't see what they mean. Just the slime was recognizable for me.

While it's ok to show them on a bevel, bear in mind that we only need the actual icon (with transparent background), and not any bevel/button around it.

I asked for the icon in that format because I thought it would fit best that way on the skill menu. Did you have another purpose in mind for it, Bjorn? I can ask Flare to cut out the background for one set of icons if you like, but I don't really see a need.

Certainly you don't mean to integrate some kind of bevel in the icons? Even if the bevel would fit our current GUI (this brown one I think doesn't), what if we'd want to change it? No, instead we need simply the icons, and if we want a box or bevel around them we do that separately in the game.

Good point, as usual :shock:

Ok, I think I understand. If you get this message before I talk to you again, Flare, just store the bevelled background in one file and the icon with a fuschia background in another file. We will assemble them in the game to make one complete image.

Yeah, no need to bother with fuscha if one uses transparent png's...personally, I just don't like it because the color proximity gives the eye an incorrect impression of what the colors in the real image actually look like.

And...I'm sorry, but I've been trying, and I can still only figure out two (the bug and the slime). What are the other ones?

Let me resolve the mystery for you, Talaroc (since you didn't just go to the master list and look like Flare suggested :wink: )

1. Hunt insects
2. Hunt birds
3. Hunt amorphs
4. Hunt undead (it's a ghost, can't you tell? We should make this a real enemy. It's iconic! :wink: )

these skills increase damage and item drop rates among monsters of the given type. They all share a brown background to signify their group.
