[WIP]>[FND] Chocolate icon update

Post by Frictor » 18 Feb 2009, 04:47

Aethyra recently had a player remake the chocolate icon. Her name is Kinwa, and she did a good enough job that the staff there decided to use her art. As a courtesy to TMW, and at Rotonen's suggestion, I am posting the finished version here, along with a recolorable version and the appropriate replacement text for one line of the chocolate bar item in items.xml. This should allow you to make the appropriate changes with a minimum of fuss if you find it worthy of adding to any future updates. The reason it was made recolorable, is that Aethyra wanted to have a couple of other forms of chocolate available at a later date.

Code: Select all

The image has definitely been scaled down from a larger image. You can tell by the blur at the edge which goes beyond reasonable anti aliasing.

Are you sure that she made it herself and didn't just take an image from somewhere else and scaled it down?

In that case you did a really good job. Thanks for posting it here. We will consider using the image in the next update.

Sorry about the copy radar being on too sensitive. We've had a lot of crap thrown at us lately.

Other than that, as we reasoned with Frictor on IRC, it's solid work, but could need a wrapper (as in original packaging) to cover it partially to be perfect.

As for now, pushing it online is the sane thing to do.

For example solid color with one diagonal stripe (recolorable, of course).

Ok before we get too caught up in this, I remembered to ask Kinwa what sort of copyright she wanted on it, listing GPL, CC, BSD, and then whatever else she might want for it, in that order. Her response was that she wanted it under Creative Commons, with credit, Non-commercial, share alike. (CC-BY-NC-SA) I am including a link to the forum topic on the Aethyra forums where she posted this information.

Then this gets interesting, as stuff posted here is GPL compatible automatically. And since licensing terms came after the fact....

im not so much into that licence stuff, but i think what ive chosen is with the spirit of tmw, regarding to platynas posting? if not, we could change it. as frictor asked me, i didnt say GPL just because i thought it would allow commercial use. (?)

Sorry, but we can only accept content which is licensed under the GNU GPL or a license which is compatible with it.

Although the other requirements of the GPL make efficient commercial use difficult (it's hard to control a software market when every single one of your customers can become your competitor) it does not forbid commercial use per-se, and thus the creative commons by-nc-sa is incompatible with it.

Seems I failed to see something in the forum rules somewhere. My apologies to everybody for the conflict that this whole chocolate bar thing has caused, and the tardiness with which I looked into the licence Kinwa wanted on the art.

We really need to work out a way to have the license shown when making new threads and posts.
