[REQ] Equipment slot background silhuettes

For this, we need a gray transparent silhouette for each equippable equipment type.

Trousers
Boots
Gloves
Weapon
Shield
Ring

~Is that all? Or am I missing some?

EDIT: How big should the images be?

Well, I haven't worked on it for a few days but here's the prototype I made then. Basically I just greyed-out various items. Just tell me what you think of this style. If you wanted a more shadowy version (quite light grey, becoming lighter toward the edges as though a shadow of the item) I can do that, or I can tweak this around if you like it. Originally I pictured a flat light grey with a black outline to the South-West (I think that's where the light comes from...) indicating a... whatever that word is. Not 'embossed'... that's going outwards. I think. Anyway, sort of carved in like. I'm sure you understand what I mean.

~please tell me what you think.

Do attach the file to the forums so we can actually see it?

Yes, I meant to do that but I really had to get off the computer in a hurry and had no time. I'm doing a few minutes work on it now and then I'll edit this post and upload it.

~as they are just greyed-out items, the gloves look far too big compared to the boots...

It needs work... also, I couldn't figure out what went in the two empty slots.

Looks good, thanks both Rotonen and Enchilado.

They're for "rings". As far as I can see:
Bottom left takes the towel and the four-leaf clover.
There's nothing for the bottom right.
The wedding ring itself goes in the "cape" slot.

Needs to be rearranged, methinks...

Rings shouldn't be using the cape slot.

Shouldn't as in "the current implementation is wrong" or "Octalot's documentation of the current implementation's behaviour is wrong"?
Either way, what's the correct documentation of the correct behaviour, so Enchilado! can design to it?

The slot definitions have always been flaky.

up!
I am currently working on rewriting the equipment window and for that I need background pictures for all slots. Also a "slot" picture on which the background/item is drawn would be nice. The current rectangle is a bit boring.

I vote for using adamaix work as official skin:

So the slot backgrounds should also have the same style. The current style looks boring as hell.
