Think of icons and we put them in the game!

Hi guys!

For the next update, we are going to release a shop where you can get items for your account (unique powerups, gamemodes...)
One of these items will be icons in front of your name.
Currently, only the moderators and a select few people have icons in front of your name but soon everyone can have one!

What we want to do in this forum is that you too can propose icons for in the game!
There are a lot of you who like to contribute to the game but you can't help us code it unfortunately. But we really like all the suggestions we get and have also worked out a lot of them.
Now, with icons in front of your name, everyone can think of one and have it implemented.

SO HERE'S HOW IT WORKS!

Step 1: Think of an icon you think is cool and make a drawing of it (doesn't have to be perfect or sharp!)
It's important that this icon is made on at least 500x500, but can also be recognised/seen on the size it will eventually get: 23x23 !
Also, the picture has to be white on black.

Step 2: Create a topic with 'NEW IDEA'. It's a button in the top of these forums!

Step 3: Upload the picture of your icon to this topic. When creating a new idea you can include the image of the icon there.

Step 4: Other players have to vote on your topic via the HEARTS and the higher the rating and the more votes, the more likely it is it will be implemented!
But don't cheat! We can see when you reply to your own topics or have the same people reply multiple times to the same topic ; )

Step 5: I will process your icon into a vector and implement it into the game and for the next update. It may be that I contact you with more wishes from you about the icon. For example: You want it to be available to premiums only? Or can think of how much credits it should be?

Step 6: You will get your icon in your inventory for free (and set). Others will have to spend game credits on it.

Step 7: You will see other players who have your purchased your personally created icon, and when you have proposed multiple icons, you will appear in the game credits/creators that can be seen in the game (next update) : )

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

WARNING Do not use icons directly from a source that has the icon protected or a trademark on the icon. Places where symbols have to be bought and you copy them directly is not allowed! Using a picture of something real, and then drawing an icon from it, is okay! Just don't copy an 'already' icon.

Benniegek, please make seperate topics for them and check out whether they are shrinkable to 23x23 pixels and still be seen.

In Dutch:
Maak even losse topics en kijk of, als je ze verkleint tot 23x23, ze nog goed zichtbaar zijn!

Read the top post, they need to be rated by other players.
I cannot just implement every icon, it takes too much time.

One general question:

Will the icons be in different colors? e.g. will premium/individual icons have the same color like champion icons?

Because if they come in one color it would downgrade the champion icons Smile

I think champions should still keep something special, because there should be a great motivation to become a champion. And dont tell me the "the great champion ..... entered your room" is enough ^ ^

cool,

Well, all icons that premiums get will be gold by default.
If you are are a regular user, you will just get a white icon.

Of champions, I am not sure yet. But I think I can do something special with them!

Biggrin :D Biggrin :D Biggrin very nice Smile

Just a suggestion: If you will not change the color (or whatever^ ^) from the icon you could change the color of the Name as well Dirol

Hi,

I'd like to be able to upload an additional 23px render of my icons (together with the large version) so the final result will be visible, too. Could you add that as an option?

Yes, please stop asking.
I will review ALL THE ICONS. But I'm just not sure when. It may take a while.
I'm the only designer programmer on the game and there is a lot of other stuff to do as well.

Like!

 

Dear Brouns, since the update is here, I suggest a different color for champion (and mod) icons. Or a different color for their names, but that would look very strange.

It became very hard to become a champion, since more ppl are playin and much more ppl are very pro (compared to 6-12 months ago). Tournaments are big events, which is also good for promoting the game and prem memberships. Therefore I think, the reward should be amazing. (and now its only one out of many icons)

I got one- Shuriken (ninja star) as icon!!! I'll upload a picture of what i was thinking another day....

 

Also-since the premium star is hidden by icons, why not make the premium players' icons yellow (same colour as premium star) on black to indicate they are premium.

 

And also maybe for something like 10 000 coins we can create our own icons by drawing them.

OMG!!! It's Over 9000!!! (ms lag)

Make the crowns 'blink and glitter' like the annoying 'you unlocked a special powerup, become a premium member to try it out'-thing at the bottom Smile Then people will notice it again. And make 'normal' icons the color of their name, so crowns stand out even more.

I'd say keep it as it is, and give champions a red shiny icon :)

@fire

The premium icons are yellow on black and normal is just white on black. (I dont know whether this is already implemented-so ignore this if it already is)
